HOW TO MAKE YOU NAIL POLISH LAST UP TO TWO YEARS
One way to make your nail polish last longer is to keep it in the refrigerator. I’m not kidding either. I have nail polish from two years ago that are still in perfect shape. I swear to you this is no joke. Stick those bad boys in your fridge.
Another thing that helps, is keeping your nail polish bottle up right. Keeping you nail polish bottle up right helps to prevent the pigments and solvents from separating.
We all have this next problem with our nail polish. I call it the clump factor. Something I used to do fix this problem, was pour a tiny tiny bit of nail polish remover into my nail polish bottle, and shake it. Now this helped big time. However, some nail polish removers will turn your nail polish cloudy. So I recommend that you buy nail polish thinner. You just ass a drop or two to your nail polish and shake gently.
My last tip to help keep your nail polish in tip-top shape is to always wipe away the residue from the threaded portion of the nail polish bottle. This will ensure a tight closure, preventing your nail polish from drying out.
HOW TO WASH YOUR MAKE-UP BRUSHES
Run the bristles of the makeup brush under warm running water.
(side note)-You could also first combine water and makeup remover to your brushes. Letting it soke for about 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds (Don’t soke longer than 5 minutes)
Then move to the second step and proceed to wash them with shampoo. Not a lot of shampoo, just a small amount. About the size of a quarter.Apply the small amount of shampoo to bristles and work into a light lather. I recommend you use something like baby shampoo, because the chemicals in the shampoo are not harsh. Also make sure that it is oil free, that is very important.
Rinse bristles thoroughly under running water. You will notice that the water leaving the brush is tinted from old makeup.
Continue rinsing until no color leaves the brush.
Allow it to air-dry. DON”T set a wet brush upright on its handle. Instead lay flat on a towel. Also DON’T add heat to your brushes. Let them dry at their own pace.
