Make the nail polish last longer with Mineral smooth

    When I went and did gel nails at a salon a long time before, I realized how much an even nail surface does for the durability of the nail polish.

    Because even though I had nice nails all the time then, I wanted to vary, and used to paint my nails with different nail polish anyway. And gosh what they kept good! Even natural nails often have small irregularities that cause the varnish to drop, but on a smooth surface, nail polish lasts much, much longer.

    So it's an experience I carry with me, and before the nail polish is painted on, I polish the surface with a polishing file (I use Depends 4-step file) which makes the nails smooth.

    And then, as the finishing touch, I use a base coat that evens out the nail surface:

    Mineral Smooth contains small mineral particles that even out the surface of the nail and make the paint varnish more durable and even. The varnish protects the nails from discoloration and can be used individually or as an undercoat. Also contains vitamin E which nourishes the nail.

    Mineral Smooth costs 79 kronor :)

    It will soon be sold out, so be careful if you do not want to wait until I get the next delivery from Paese!

    1. Hello,
      Have a question!

      I wonder what can be done to prevent the makeup from being smeared out of the corner of the eye, the end of the eye (eyeliner wing) & in the waterline itself… I have sensitive eyes & often (especially outdoors) it happens that the makeup is smeared at the areas mentioned above… . Really hard… Waterproof makeup products honestly do not have such a feature on me.

      Another question!
      Among other things, you have suggested that the eye gets another nice framing (?) If you apply eyeliner / similar in the upper lashes (ie in the 'upper lashes waterline') what you now call it haha. It makes a big difference but for me the color then ends up on the lower waterline & the whole eye turns black…

      How to succeed better ??

      Hugs :)

      • Hi Sophie! :) Waterproof is not always rub-proof, especially if it is both water and movement at the same time. What kind of makeup do you have there, is it a waterproof eyeliner along the waterline, a liquid eyeliner that you make a wing out of, or what is it that is smeared out? Or is it everything in the outer corner of the eye, mascara and the whole chorus? Can be good to know to come up with a more concrete tip :)

        As for you second question, it is a question I have received often lately, so I will make a post about it within a few days only, so keep an eye out for it :)

        Hugs :)
