Myth 1: Storing Nail Polish in the refrigerator keeps it longer.
No. Exposing your beautiful lacquer(s) to extreme temperature changes may cause harm to the actual nail polish formulation. By placing nail polish in the fridge, crystallization can occur; hence, the formulation is broken down. Instead, nail polish should be stored at room temperature; kept away from direct sunlight, and closed tightly.
Myth 2: Cutting Your Cuticles is a MUST
No. Cutting your cuticles is not a must. Your cuticles are present to prevent bacteria from getting into your body and causing infections.
Think of them as a barrier to all the ewww lurking out there. Think of all the things you do with your hands and all the things you touch. Now, think of your cuticles protecting you from all of those things. Yeah. That part. Cut cuticles grow back thicker and harder. I don’t know about you, but I am literally cringing a little while I think of all the times my cuticles have been cut.
When I tell you knowledge is power and can save your health! Combat those pesky cuticles by moisturizing them. Our Relaunch Nail Polish cuticle oil is rich in antioxidant oils that can be applied throughout the day to revive dry cuticles. After your shower or bath, place our cuticle oil around your cuticles. Gently push your cuticles back, either with your washcloth or a cuticle stick. Now massage the remainder of the cuticle oil into your cuticles and over your nail bed. Remember…No snippy!
Myth 3: Cold water dries nail polish faster
This one is probably the TIP TOP of myths regarding your nail polish. While the cold water may indeed dry the top layer of your nails polish, there still remains the layers beneath. These layers are still wet and
the cold water simply hardened the top layer. Those bottom layers though, yeah, they are prone to dents. Trust me I know. This was a lesson quickly learned when I was 18 years old, listening to my mom fuss because I chose to do my nails 5 minutes before heading out the door. Instead, opt for a quick dry nail polish like our Relaunch Nail Polish.
Myth 4: Just add acetone to thin your clumpy nail polish
No. Just DON’T Do It! Let’s think about this one. Acetone is made to break down your nail polish and remove it from your nail bed. Placing
acetone into your nail polish bottle will break down its chemical composition. This breakdown can lead to your nail polish having discoloration; being dried out when the acetone evaporates and chipping quickly on your nails. In its place, use nail polish thinner. Your local beauty supply store should carry it.
So, these are just a few myths we hope we’ve cleared up for you. Even if you weren’t wondering, guess what? Now ya know!
