How to Get Perfect Nails All Year Long

zoya_nailpolish_byrdie_naked_goldDo you know that girl who always has perfect nails? Do you ever wonder how she gets them to look so great all the time? Byrdie is sharing 9 things girls with perfect nails always do – so you can achieve that too!

Byrdie interviewed Zoya Creative Director, Rebecca Isa for tips on prepping before you paint.

“Once a week, remove all polish and massage a nail oil into the nail plate, cuticle, and nail tips, including underneath the free edge. Let the oil absorb completely then apply a base coat, like this one by Zoya ($12) right over to lock it into the nail plate. It works best if using an oil that starts as a gel and melts down to an oil. This will absorb and fill in any microscopic cracks in the nail plate.” — Rebecca Isa, Zoya creative director 

Isa suggests using Qtica Solid Gold as the perfect oil to massage into your nail plate, and the Naked Manicure Naked Base to lock that moisture in. Plus, the base coat also fills in ridges, and adds hydration, vitamins, and minerals to help promote healthy nail growth.

With these tips, you’ll be on your way to perfect looking nails all year long.
