#1 Use a professional salon formulation to give lasting wear; protection; durability; and shine!
#2 Experiment with different brands to get the best performance!
#3 A good polish should be easy to apply; and have an even consistency and colour!
#4 A good polish should not be harmful to nails; or stain the nails!
#5 Always use a base coat to prevent the risk of staining the nails; and to prolong the life of the polish!
#6 To prevent the peeling and wearing of polish, make sure all layers are properly dried between coats!
#7 Some benefits of various nail coatings are: quick drying; resistance to yellowing; heat activated; and top coats with optical brighteners for pink and whites. Investigate whether these products are cost effective. They will often save you time!
#8 Avoid problems with setting up polish by keeping an ambient room or salon temperature!
#9 Always read the manufacturer's instructions for the products you are working with. Products set up differently according to manufacturer and and will require various working conditions to set up effectively!
#10 Beware of the differences in top coats such as: chemical makeup; quality; viscosity; drying time; and whether they contain hardeners and sunscreens!
Thank you for reading and have a great day!
