It is very important to get rid of excessive moisture before applying the nail polish.

Only after this procedure you can start applying nail polish to your nails.
Create a base
Base coat of nail polish is rather important if to speak about long-lasting manicure. Besides, base coat will help to create even nail surface for colored nail polish to look its best. Apply a thin coat of base nail polish and let it dry completely.
Two COATS are better than one!
If you want to get the really long-lasting manicure, apply two coats of colored nail polish, but remember nail polish coats should be thin. And what is more important you should necessarily wait for the first coat to dry and only after that apply the second one.
Nail down the results

- Reapply a thin layer of top coat each alternate day to keep nails glossy and well-groomed.
- Keep your hands out of hot water for 12 hours after applying nail polish, as it takes much time for nail polish to harden.
