Choosing the perfect nail color is always the most difficult decision to make, but what is even harder is picking the BEST type of nail polish that will leave your manicure to die for!
There are a couple of things you should know before getting a manicure. For example, the different types of nail polishes and the outcomes you will have. First there is a “base” and a “top” coat, the base coat is the first layer that goes on your nail before the desired nail polish it applied. Second there is a top coat, in which it is applied after. Its purpose is to give your mani a glamorous look and it also makes the nail polish last longer.
The three most popular nail polish types are shellac, matte, and gel. All three serve the same purpose and that is to give you a fun, chic look you will love! Let’s start with Shellac. This type of nail polish is longer lasting; it can last up to 4 weeks and it is known to be the healthier choice for your natural nail. It leaves your manicure with a shiny glowing result. Secondly Matte is for the girls who like their style to be a little more modern or don’t want the color they picked to show too much. It has a dull finish, and it ranges in color. This style also lasts about a couple of weeks based on your nail growth and if there is any chipping of the nail polish. Lastly a gel manicure seems to be the most popular. Gel manicures give your nails a bright and shiny appearance. It can last about 4 weeks and it is slightly difficult to remove. However, this just shows the strength it has so that it last the longest amount of time. The length you want your manicure is your own preference. Some individuals like them short while others like them medium length with a cool design like almond shape, square, or even very pointy. Whichever style of nail you prefer will look amazing with the type of nail polish and design you decide to go with.
