2. Apply a Base Coat

If you don’t apply a base coat your nails will get stained from the polish, and your manicure won’t last as long because it doesn’t have a solid base to cling to. Without a base coat your nails can also turn into a yellowish colour.

3. Don’t pick or chew your cuticles

First it doesn’t look classy at all; secondly it’s the quickest way to get an infection. The contour of your nails will turn reddish and it will be painful.

4. Use Hand Cream

Use hand moisturizer as often as you can. Keeping your skin hydrated and protected with a barrier cream will prevent dry, raw or cracking skin, particularly in winter. It is not only about your nails but also your hands!
