A BUFF TOO FAR
Nude nails that are clean, shiny and buffed are preferable to a single coat of chipped polish, but only buff nails once a week. Over-buffing weakens the nails by taking away the top layer, making them more porous.
If you want to avoid having smudged and bleeding varnish, leave a margin around your nails when you are painting them. In addition, this will make your nails look longer and more elegant.
