Tips for Using Natural Nail Polish
To maximize the length of wear of natural nail polish it is important to follow the application instructions closely. Clean your hands and nails thoroughly with soap and water, and dry completely. If you have extremely brittle nails, rub a little cuticle oil into your nails first. Apply thin coats of polish one at a time until your desired color is reached. Allow each coat to dry at least 30 seconds before applying the next.
Due to the lack of chemical solvents in natural polish, it requires more time to dry. Unless directed otherwise, allow at least 4 hours for the polish to harden completely. During drying time avoid hot water. For best results, you may want to polish your nails right before bed. Remove and/or change your polish weekly and store it at room temperature.
In between polish changes, one of the safest and most eco-friendly ways to have beautiful nails is to invest in a good quality nail buffer. Buffing regularly, about once a month, will give your nails a high gloss shine without the use of any additional products. It will smooth your nail surfaces and stimulate blood circulation, resulting in longer and healthier nails.
Searching for eco-friendly, non-toxic products is well worth the effort. As all the ingredients in natural nail polish are safe for you and the environment, why bother with chemical colors?
