Nail Prep for the Perfect Nailfie

Ever see those hand commercials and magazines where the model has the perfect, smooth skin like porcelain while holding that perfect pose and brand you love? Have you ever wondered how they mastered that technique or what beauty regimen they have? Well, we’re here to help and provide you with some essential tips, as with every stunning nailfie or hand pose, preparation is key!

1.  Put That Product In
Did you know that our nails are more permeable than the skin? Yes, you read that right! Like other parts of our body, your nails must be prepped and moisturized. Using a nutrient-rich oil or moisturizer on your nails before bedtime is best.

2.  Softer Hands, Stronger Nails
Aside from just applying moisturizer on your nails, it’s best to massage it right in. As you massage the moisturizer into your hands, nails, and cuticles, you improve blood circulation and give them essential nutrients to make them softer, plumper, and stronger.

3.  Time to Shine 
Prepare your nails for the cameras! 📸 Of course, we want your nails to appear clean and aesthetic when taking nailfies! With proper care for your cuticles, we make sure that your nail beds appear neat and tidy, allowing your nail wraps to shine! Always remember to be gentle in trimming the excess cuticle, and never overdo it.

4.  Go, Grow, and GLOW 
Having a well-balanced diet is essential in maintaining your nails healthy-looking. Don’t forget to include foods like eggs, nuts, legumes, vegetables, fruits, and the right amount of meat in your daily diet to promote nail strength.

5.  Drink that Water, Girl!
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink plenty of water to keep your nails and cuticles moisturized. Staying well-hydrated helps prevent nail brittleness. Of course, we want those nailfies to look perfect - inside and out!

Get Notified for Back-In-Stock: Swimming at Sunset (Glitter) 

We love creativity and seeing fun nailfies online, and many of you have asked for some tips about posing with nails. 

Achieving a graceful and natural look with your hands is key to letting your nails take center stage. 

That said, here are some of our favorites on what NOT to do 💅🏻 Remember, the key is to let your nails tell their own story in each photo. 

1.  The Monster Claw ~
 
Get Notified for Back-In-Stock: Swimming at Sunset (Glitter)

Embrace a more subtle finger positioning to ensure your gorgeous nail wraps shine bright! We're all about letting your nails steal the spotlight, and a slightly more relaxed pose will beautifully showcase the intricate details and designs. Your nails deserve the main stage, and we're here to help them dazzle!

2.  The Double Stack ~ 
 

While the Double Stack is a fun way to play with finger positions, we want to ensure your stunning nail wraps don't get lost. Occasionally, in its pursuit of uniqueness, this pose can create a bit of visual overload, making it a tad challenging for your beautiful nail art to stand out. Let's find that perfect balance that highlights your unique style while keeping the focus on those fabulous nail wraps of yours!

3.  The Death Grip bare ~ 

Feeling comfortable and at ease translates into a more genuine and appealing nailfie. With its tight hold, the Death Grip might not be the most comfortable pose, and we're all about embracing poses that make you feel confident and relaxed. Avoid clenching your fists and instead, keep your hands relaxed. This helps convey a natural and effortless feel in your photos, allowing your nails to be the focal point.

4.  The Alien Gesture ~ 

Our mission is to spotlight your fabulous nail wraps' incredible details and designs! However, the Alien Gesture, while fun, might cast a shadow on those intricate features. Let's make sure your wraps are the true stars of the show, free from any intergalactic interference. Time to let your nails shine and steal the spotlight!

5.  The Death Grip with an Object ~ 
 

Picture a world where breaking things for nailfies became the latest trend—imagine the chaos! 😅 Let's keep the fun in our nailfies without causing any accidental mayhem. No broken items, just beautiful nails stealing the spotlight in a trend that's all about style and positivity! 💅✨

6.  ??? ~ Interlocked?
 

While the Interlocked pose has its quirky charm, it's true that trends come and go. However, timeless elegance lasts forever. What's fun today may become dated quickly. Avoiding distracting gestures and opting for subtle, refined hand movements are something to keep in mind so your wraps and hands are displayed nicely. These can add a touch of sophistication to your photos without removing the focus on your nails. Let your nails be the epitome of enduring style!

Now, let’s do the Do’s:

It stands for Adorable Representative M.C. for Youth and it was established on July 9, 2013. ARMY isn't just a fandom; it's a force for good.
