Six ways to up your chic factor with your manicure

When you meet someone for the first time, what do you notice? The details of their appearance, like how sleek their hair is, their earrings, or their manicure. These small indicators can be screaming more about your personality than you realize – what do ratty, chewed nails and chipped polish say? Probably not what you’re trying hard to communicate with the rest of your outfit. Up your chic factor and subtly tell the world who you really are – a confident badass!

Keep nails short

Short nails look chic. It says you take care of your nails, but are too busy and important for looking after long nails.

Get clean

This seems obvious, but dirt under your nails or around your cuticles probably doesn’t send the message you want. Take a nail brush to those bad boys next time you’re in the shower.

Go nude

A gorgeous shade of buff sends the message that ‘I care for my nails, but I’m not preoccupied with wearing some trendy colour’. How very Anna Winter of you.

Go dark

There’s something very sharp about an inky navy or a deep burgundy. It shows confidence and a quiet sexiness. Super chic.

Perfect cuticles

Keep your cuticles perfectly hydrated and you’ll always look put together. A beautiful cuticle is like a gilded frame on a lovely picture – that finishing touch.

Soft hands

When you shake someones hand, what do you notice? Thought so. Moisturize. You want people remembering your lovely smile and sparkling wit, not your cracked hands.
