While dark manicure colors can sometimes be unforgiving for many, they can also be fun, but be sure to exercise a little extra care making sure your nails stay flawless-looking!
Most dark colors can work with any skin tone, so basing on your kind of mood, you can choose your color as a guide. As much as possible, choose an opaque formula that can be saturated with one coat which can make it less likely to chip for a longer time.
Maintain nails square and short, with slightly rounded edges....you know, long, dark nails look creepy! :)) Take care of them with soft buffing pad to smoothen them. Always apply an anti-yellowing basecoat and let dry for at least 20 seconds to avoid staining.
Dark manicured nails can be easily noticed for ragged cuticles, so use moisturizers with a cuticle cream or oil.
Also, reapply topcoat every 4 days to help protect your manicure.
To remove polish, use a cotton ball with nonacetone remover by pressing on your cuticle for at least 3 seconds, then wipe toward the end of the nail. Use a straight up and down motion technique for a lesser mess.
