How to maintain your nails for the whole vacation: 5 tips from a professional + cool manicure ideas

Worried about your manicure while on holiday? How to extend its durability or correct deficiencies that have appeared? Well. don’t be !- just read below.

If you accidentally damage the finish (gel polish or regular polish, it doesn’t matter), don’t worry. A regular lacquer top (top coat) will help even out the color, smooth out scratches and add extra shine to your nails. It is not necessary to cover the manicure with a thick layer, it’s enough to run the top over the coating just once .

If you accidentally touch the coating from the edge of the nail, take a fine abrasive file for natural nails (280 grit) and carefully file down the nail plate. Do not make sudden movements, try to move the file smoothly and in the same direction.

If you see a burr – do not try to tear it off (this can lead to bad/sad consequences). Carefully cut off the burr with scissors or special nippers, and then be sure to moisturize the skin of your hands with a special oil or fat cream.

Coarse side ridges on the fingers can be quickly repaired with a normal fine abrasive natural nail file. Just gently saw down the rough skin and generously smear your hands with cream. Cellophane gloves and linen mittens put on top of them will help to enhance the effect of the cream

Give your hands a little prize/celebration from time to time : use a scrub and nourishing hand cream throughout the holidays.
