There is nothing like a professional manicure. When you try to do it at home it just never seems to come out quite right. Here are some secrets to how the professionals do it.

1. Roll, don’t shake.

So, how often do you shake your chosen bottle before you apply? This is a no-no! Shaking the bottle creates bubbles of oxygen, creating lumps in the polish. For a more smooth product, roll the bottle between your palms while holding it upside down.

2. Technique is key.

Thin, even layers is the trick. If you start with a stroke down the center and then add two additional strokes one either side you are likely to get an even effect. It’s also important to run the brush across the tip of the nail, for a long lasting manicure. It keeps the risk of chipping to a minimum.
