DIY Professional Manicure for Celeb-Worthy Nails at Home
We love the feeling of a glossy new manicure. You walk out of the salon, your cuticles are nourished, your nails are neat and filed, the colour is perfect and there's not a chip in sight. However, when you try to paint on your shade of choice at home the results can sometimes leave a lot to be desired.
So we're taking a stance, we've had enough of our tatty polish jobs! We sat down with Fiona Hay, Orly's Australian ambassador and resident manicurist at Edwards & Co in Sydney, to get the low-down on how to do your nails like a pro. It might surprise you to know that it's not so much about the application of polish, but much more about the prep and the care afterwards, so we're ready to invest a little time into getting it right to reap the rewards of the long-wear benefits.
Fiona knows what she's talking about, a glossy editorial regular and a manicurist to the stars, her clients include Megan Washington (pictured above), Lara Bingle, Nicole Trunfio, Cate Blanchett, Shanina Shaik, Megan Gale and she was the one responsible for Seal's nails on last season's The Voice. Remember Seal's gold, yellow and foil manicures from season two? Yep. That was all her.
