Ask Suzi: Peeling Polish

Suzi Says...

A: One of the biggest secrets to preventing polish from peeling is maintaining your cuticles. Lacquer adheres to the nail bed, but not to skin. If your cuticles aren’ t pushed back, you end up painting over them and polish will start to peel at the base of the nail. One of my favorite products for cuticle maintenance is Avoplex Cuticle Oil to Go, which is easy to apply and can be carried in a purse or makeup bag. I also like to recommend OPI Natural Nail Base Coat to prime the nail surface and increase adhesion of lacquer. You can also use OPI Top Coat every few days to further avoid chips.
