When you’re getting ready for a manicure, a pedicure or both, you should try to avoid some of the worst mistakes that can affect both the health and the look of your nails, sometimes for a limited time, other times in the long run.
Here are the worst manicure and pedicure mistakes that you should avoid in order to get a good mani-pedi that lasts and doesn’t have any negative impact on your nails or skin.
Skipping the Base Coat
If you decide to skip the top coat, the worst that can happen is that your mani-pedi won’t last as long as you’d like. However, no matter how pressed for time you are, don’t ever skip the base coat. Applying colored nail polish directly on your nails can both stain them and dry them out. Your nails will also be more prone to breaking without a good base coat.
