Beautiful nails are yet another way to express yourself, whether you’re feeling flirty and fun, sexy and romantic or sleek and sophisticated. Plus, gorgeous color on your fingertips and toes is a great way to complement your outfit and your makeup, as well as your mood. A number of long-wearing nail enamel products await you—but remember, their effectiveness and durability rely on proper application and diligent aftercare. Undercoats and nail fillers protect your nails and provide a smooth surface along with effective adhesive for your color enamel. Apply two coats of your chosen color after applying the undercoat, allowing your nails to dry completely between coats; be careful not to apply any one coat too thickly! Finish off your nails with a top coat to prevent chipping and to preserve your polish. To make your manicure or pedicure last longer, reapply a thin top coat every day or two; wear gloves when you are washing dishes or doing housework; open envelopes with a letter opener instead of your fingertips; and use the pads of your fingers instead of your fingertips for typing. Thousands of beautiful, shimmery nail enamels are now—literally—at your fingertips!
