Ever since my change last week, I’ve been doing research on nail care. Funny how something like this causes need for research. So I did some searching on acrylic care, and found that it’s a good idea to re-do the topcoat that is used every 3 days or so – just clear nail polish really, so last night I went to the local Wal-Mart to find my target.
I looked through the aisles, and the associate there stocking asked if I needed any help, so I just explained what I was looking for, and she pointed it right out to me. She had tried actylics too, but just didn’t care for them. I got some good Sally Hansen clear coat, and made sure to get the non-acetone remover. Then I got home and did the ritual – first, take off the old topcoat, and then apply the new. I’m sure I’ll get better at this step, but they turned out just fine, and are back to full shine once again.
I saw another article that says some secretaries get acrylics since they type a lot, and need something sturdy. Well, I type a lot too, so I guess that makes sense. I know there are other options, but this is what i chose, and am quite happy with it.
