We all have our opinions on the best make-up practices but sometimes it pays to hear from the experts. I have found an excellent article from Wild Orchid Beauty with 30 make-up tips from famous beauty bloggers and social media stars. I have posted some of the article below with 5 tips for the perfect nails. Enjoy…
When using a hand cream, don’t forget to rub it into your nails and cuticles too. Many people often just concentrate on the back of their hands and forget their fingers, nails and cuticles, which also need moisture too.

If your nails chip time and time again then invest in a base coat and top coat from Faby – your colour will last twice as long before chipping.

When you’re painting your nails, be sure to set the hand you’re working on upon a hard surface rather than holding it up toward your face. It makes painting so much easier when your fingers are flat and steady!

The only way to have healthy nails is to start from the inside out. It doesn’t matter how many nourishing nail creams and gels you apply to the actual nail, unless you’ve got the nutritional foundation in check, it can be wasted effort. As we age, our silica levels deplete. This not only negatively affects our skin and hair, but also our nails. Eating silica-rich foods such as leeks, green beans, strawberries, cucumber, mango, celery, asparagus, oats and rhubarb is a good idea. My daily ritual is a silica-rich smoothie, to which I add 10 to 20ml Qsilica Colloidal Silica Gel—an all-natural supplement that has helped me foster strong, chip-free nails (as well as better skin, healthier hair and even strong teeth and bones). I also rarely wear nail colour, as I’m a believer in letting our nails ‘breathe’. However, there are some fabulous eco nail polish brands out there that I would wear if the occasion called for it!

Nobody likes waiting around for their nails to dry, so here’s a little shortcut. After you’re done painting, wait three minutes. Then, submerge your fingertips in cold water for at least 30 seconds. Lift your hands from the wrist out, so the water drips down off your nails. The cold helps the polish set, speeding up the drying time.
