Pro tips on longer lasting manicure
•Push cuticles and clean nail beds with alcohol before base coat application
•Always apply some nail polish at the edge of your nails to prevent chipping on tip of your nails

1. Apply OPI Base Coat
Apply OPI Natural Nail Base Coat to the nail surface, increase lacquer adhesion and prevent discoloration.

2. Apply OPI Color
Apply two coats of Nail Lacquer color of choice (I love «Suzi’s Slinging Mezcal» from the Mexico City Collection!), first stroking down the middle of nail and then on each side for complete coverage.

3. Apply OPI Top Coat
Shake OPI Top Coat thoroughly, then apply one coat to each nail to provide a beautiful shiny finish & extended life to your manicure.

The World’s Fastest Manicure

2e24e_e2a187b0-66fe-0133-6e1d-0aecee5a8273ManicureSpray_your_nails_nail-varnish

Alexa Chung is a fan and we are, too. Here is the fastest manicure. Painting your nails will never be the same again with NAILS INC’s ‘Spray Can’ polish. Designed to be as quick and easy as applying perfume, it goes on by simply misting over fingertips to achieve a super smooth finish. You have to use a base coat and can wash the excess away with warm soapy water after spraying. Or use a cleansing wipe when on the go. You will be left with a perfectly applied manicure. We will never have to go all chipped and half-painted again!

«Porchester Square» is the perfect nude shade to match any look.
