Nails and Nail Polish.


Well-groomed nails with nail polish are very beautiful to look at. Most of the women go to beauty salons, get pedicure and manicured, and ornament their nails with nail polish. But the colors usually fade or peel off after a few days.

Some women do their own nail care at home so that save money. Because you can buy all the necessary tools and stuffs to do your own pedicure and manicure sessions at your house. But your frustration anyway is that most of the time, the nail polish collection that you have would not stay fresh for a long time. It dries up very fast. When this happens, it can be considered as a loss of investment because you couldn't use it anymore.

Though, there are ways to keep your nail polish fresh for a long time. One way is to keep it in dark place and do not let it get exposed to direct sunlight. The sun and a bright place will damage the nail polish's color. When this happens, the color and the texture will not be pleasant anymore.

Another way to make it stay fresh is to keep the neck of the bottle always clean. Wipe away the neck of the bottle from the inside to the outside. That way, you will remove the excess amount of polish that may have built up while you are using it. If the polish thickens, you couldn't close the bottle properly and air will get inside. When this happens, the nail polish will become hard and you will be left with no choice but to throw it away. For sure, you wouldn’t want this thing to happen to any of your stuffs.
