We all love a good manicure, but there is one essential step we should never skip. Here you can find out which one it is.
Basecoat, color and topcoat – is the manicure ready? In the stripped-down version, yes. But a manicure can be so much more than just bringing a new color to your nails. To make the entire look shine even more, you should never forget one important step, and that is care!
Especially in winter, our skin is particularly stressed on the hands by the cold air and warm heating. In combination with hygiene measures such as disinfection and frequent hand washing, the hands are quickly red, wrinkled, and dry. That doesn’t exactly provide the appropriate stage for your painted nails. So at least a good hand cream is essential.
So be sure to massage in a rich cream at the end of your manicure. This ensures a well-groomed appearance, gives the skin the nutrients it needs and turns the manicure into a wellness experience. Hand creams that contain shea butter or moringa oil, in particular, keep the skin soft and protect the skin barrier. If you apply the cream beforehand, make sure that it is not too oily because this can minimize the durability of the paint and prevent you from painting.
Professional tip: If you want to take your manicure to an even higher level, start with a warm water bath, then carefully push the cuticle back, and only then continue with the varnishing. Finally, you can put a nourishing nail oil on the cuticle and massage it in.
