In our podcast episode with Olive & June founder Sarah Gibson Tuttle, she explains the importance of painting your nails when they’re dry. “Think about [your nails] like a wet sponge. Even though you’ve rung that sponge, it’s still wet. And so you would put paint on a damp sponge, which you would never do. » Dry nails will help your final pedicure look better!
take it easy
If your feet hurt, add some Epsom salts to your footbath. They help combat stress and stiffness in your body and are also a great addition to your bubble bath.
keep it slim
When applying your polish, try to keep your layers as thin as possible. This way you will get the color without clumping or peeling. We generally aim for three layers in total.
