How to make a manicure correctly? According to statistics from beauty industry experts, the average woman spends approximately $500 per year on her nails. Since nail care and nail art have become popular on social media, it has grasped the attention of the masses — and they’ve taken an interest in adapting it to their beauty routine! But giving yourself a nice manicure without knowing some key techniques can ruin your entire image or, even worse, put your health at risk.

For example, sanitizing your tools should be the first step and your number one priority. According to research, the area around and under our fingernails stores the largest amount of harmful bacteria. If these tools are not being washed with disinfectant, you are allowing the spread of germs and risking contamination. In addition, storing tools in a sealed bag allows bacteria to fester. Here are 9 manicure mistakes that are often overlooked.

SUMMARY:
- Cutting your cuticles is a major health risk because you leave unprotected cuts on your fingers, which could potentially get infected. Moreover, when the cuticles start growing again, they come back flaky and looking messy, which completely ruins your look.
- Base coats were created to bind with your natural nails and make your manicure last up to one week longer. This happens because our nails produce natural oils, which prevent nail polish from binding well with the nail.
- Thick coats of nail polish take twice as long to dry (approximately 5–6 minutes), which is a recipe for a smudging disaster! In general, nail polish is not designed to dry out when it’s thick, which protects it when it’s housed in the bottle.
- Q-tips are proven lifesavers, especially when it comes to makeup, and that’s why we incorporate them into our manicure routine as well. When nail polish gets onto the skin around the nail, we just get a Q-tip and start wiping.
- Filing back and forth causes micro-cracks to appear, which makes the application of nail polish look brittle and uneven. It also weakens the nails, causing them to break more easily.
- Applying nail polish around and under the edges of your nails will prevent your manicure from flaking during various activities that include water, especially doing the dishes and washing your hair. When we do these activities, water gets trapped between the nail and the nail polish, causing it to lift and chip around the top edges.
- Drying your nails in cold water is a widely known tip for people who want to dry their freshly polished nails even faster. However, this is just a myth! Cold water hardens the nails instead of drying them.
- Instead of shaking your nail polish, roll it slowly and horizontally in your hands!
