Why does polish peel off the natural nails within two to three days of a manicure?
This usually occurs because the natural nail plate is not completely clean and dehydrated prior to polish application. Rather than removing polish at the beginning of the manicure, leave it on until finished with the hand and arm massage. This prevents the lotions and oils from penetrating the natural nail plate during the manicure. Remove the polish just before trimming the cuticles and shaping the nails. Prior to reapplying polish use a dehydrator to remove any natural oil left on the nail. Next, apply a base coat, two coats of colored polish and finish with a top coat, making sure each layer has completely dried.
