Nail Polish Facts

18 Aug

My apologies for not having the time to update this space as often as I would like to. In the meantime, while we are still in the midst of being inspired by things around us for our next nail art work, here are some facts on nail polish for your entertainment!

1) To preserve nail polish for longer periods of time, keep it in the fridge. Also, avoid leaving the bottle open because this way you not only make it dry but you expose yourself to the poisonous substances it contains.

2) If the smell of nail polish makes you dizzy, you can go to the terrace and apply it there. When you are in the open, the smell is less suffocating. In any case, ventilate the room properly, after you have finished polishing your nails.

3) If you want to minimize chipping, β€œwrap” the polish – i.e. paint a little across the edge and under the nail tip. This thickens the polish and increases its changes to stay for longer.

4) When you apply nail polish, don’t mistake it with paint. Being generous is not good because the thick layer of polish might not dry out for a long time and additionally, a thick layer tends to be uneven and falls quickly.

5) Don’t use nail polish if it is old. The shelf life of nail polish is 2 years in general, so if you have older polishes, just throw them away.

Till the next time!:)

HELLO! I know I haven’t been around much but thanks to Jan my nail pictures have been making it up still πŸ™‚ Haven’t been feeling particularly inspired I’m afraid and these things just can’t be forced, I only paint my nails when a particular design catches my eye. So here are my current nails which are just a variation of the colour blocking that we love to do with scotch tape layer by layer! Have been getting good comments about them and I really think its the colour combi of gold, black and a taupe colour, so here you go!

In other eggciting news, we’ve had over 5000 views since we started ! It’s awesome knowing that there are people out there who love painting nails like we do πŸ™‚ Feel free to email us (thenailfetish@gmail.com) your pictures if you want to share your nail designs on our blog, spread the lurve!
