*Use a gauze pad instead of a cotton ball to take off your nail polish.  You'll use less remover and no "fuzz" stuck to your nails!
*Put on cuticle oil before removing nail polish.  It will condition your cuticles so that the nail polish doesn't discolor your cuticles.  This is especially helpful when removing dark colors.
*Only use 1 coat of polish if wearing a sheer color.  Base coat - 1 coat - top coat.  Your polish will stay on longer- especially if your hands are in water a lot or you're a mom!
*Make sure you use a UV protection top coat.  Not only will you protect your nails from harmful rays but your polish color won't change.  This is especially true with light colors or a french mani- pedi.  Did you know that sunblock can turn your polish yellow?
