Even with a perfectly polished pedi, summer activities lik
e walking, running, hiking or even a day at the pool or beach could eventually make your feet less than flawless. After a while, the shine of your polish may start to fade and chip. Luckily, there are a few simple ways that you can prolong the look of your pedicure. Here are a few tips that will keep your toes looking fabulous for extra days.
First off, you should re-coat your dry nails with a top coat BEFORE you see any chipping as prevention. Re-applying your top coat every once in a while will keep your polish looking fresh, shiny and chip-free.
Secondly, be sure to buy your favorite OPI nail polish from our salons and take it around with you! This way you can cover any small chips that you may have and really extend the life of your pedicure. Take it on your vacation and fix t
hose unavoidable chips after a long day at the beach. Apply a top coat afterward and wait until it dries before slipping into your sandals!
And now that you have all the tips to prolong your pedi, another quick thing that we should all be mindful of is taking care of our hands! Many of us remember to protect our faces in the summer, but what about the most exposed part of our bodies? Our hands are out in the open the most and it is important to take care of them.
Be sure to wear a broad spectrum sunscreen on your hands when outside. This will protect them from the sun’s damaging rays and help prevent signs of aging. You also want to exfoliate your hands between regular manicure visits. Ask your licensed nail professional for any home care treatments and products that you can use! You also want to carry hand cream AT ALL TIMES. Moisturize those hands often to keep them looking smooth and fresh!
Follow these easy tips and you will have a longer-lasting pedicure and younger-looking hands. Schedule yourself a lemonade manicure and pedicure to keep your summer going on the right foot (and hand!) Call 614.418.5350 or go online
