Nail Care Tips From Deborah Lippmann
Can you add acetone to polish when it thickens with age?
No, it compromises the formula. Keep the cap as tight as possible on your polish to make it last.
Does the base & top coat get old?
All nail polish has a shelf life – typically, a polish can last from 18 to 24 months if kept in a cool, dark place.
What causes polish to be bumpy when applied?
Shaking your polish bottle can create air bubbles, ultimately causing bumps. Roll your polishes in-between the palms of your hands instead!
Is there an optimal time between polish coats?
Waiting two full minutes between each coat allows each coat to dry properly to not interfere with the next coat.
Is it helpful to wipe nails with polish remover before you start to apply polish?
Wipe your nails with nail polish remover prior to polishing to remove any access oils to create a clean slate for the base coat to adhere to. Then, make sure your nails are completely dry before applying a base coat
