My Tips For Choosing The Right Shade For Your Skin Tone

Selecting the perfect shade for your skin tone is all about understanding undertones. If you have a cool undertone, look for shades with blue or purple bases; warmer skin tones are complemented by nude and white hues with peach or yellow undertones. For those with neutral undertones, you’re in luck—most shades will harmonize beautifully with your skin. Remember, the goal is to contrast or complement your natural coloring, so don’t be afraid to experiment until you find the shade that makes you feel fabulous.

My Top Tips To Make Your Manicure Last Longer

Making your manicure last is all about the prep and the aftercare. Start with clean, dry nails before application, and always use a good base coat to help the polish adhere better. When applying color, use thin, even layers, allowing each layer to dry completely. A top coat is crucial—not only does it add a glossy shine, but it also seals in color and helps prevent chipping. Apply an additional thin layer of top coat throughout the week to keep things fresh.

Avoid soaking your nails in the water for too long, as this can cause polish to lift and peel. Slip on some gloves to protect your nails from harsh chemicals and detergents when doing chores or dishes. And remember, your nails are jewels, not tools—treat them gently. Oil your cuticles daily to keep your nails strong and your skin supple, which helps prevent hangnails and maintains the overall health of your manicure. With these tips, your nails will stay looking salon-fresh for longer!
