Here, the team shares three tips to keeping nails looking and feeling their best in lieu of regular salon visits.
For shiny nails, the secret is simple – dry each nail with a towel for two seconds after each shower. That will keep the natural sebum of the nail, as water actually dries them out.
When your nail is clean on the surface (no polish), use a chamois leather buffer to buff the nails. Apply a shoe-shining like motion to accelerate the blood circulation, increasing the flow of oxygen and nutrients to the nail bed.
To give your nails the drink of moisture they need, massage them with a dollop of olive oil every day.
