Dry It Out

in our podcast episode with Olive & June founder Sarah Gibson Tuttle, she explains that it’s important to paint your nails when they’re dry. “Think about [your nails] like a wet sponge. Even if you range out that sponge, it’s still damp. And so you’d be putting paint onto a damp sponge, which you would never do.” Dry nails will help your final pedicure look its best!

Take It Easy

If you have sore feet, add some epsom salts to your foot bath. They help fight stress and stiffness in your body, and also make for an excellent addition to your bubble bath.

keep it thin

When applying your polish, try and keep your layers as thin as possible. That way you’ll the color without the clumping or peeling. We usually aim for three layers total.
