Beauty Note: Summer Nail Tips Courtesy of Skyy Hadley

While we are already feeling the heat, summer official kicks off today and whether we want it to or not, our nails will automatically take center stage. When heading to the beach, a backyard bbq or a rooftop party, we want out fingernails & toenails to be on point. Celebrity manicurist Skyy Hadley has a few tips for you to have the perfect mani & pedi this summer. 

What shades work best on fair, medium and dark complexions?
  • Fair skin, use white and blue undertones
  • Medium skin, use pink undertones
  • Dark skin, use transparent tones
Is it safe to cut cuticles?
  • Trimming or cutting cuticles during a manicure is purely cosmetic and sometimes doesn’t benefit the nail in any way. The cuticle is the barrier to protect the surrounding skin and help develop the nail from infections (bacteria). 
How can one treat yellow/white nails?
  • The most common suggestion would be to stop using so much dark nail polish. Of course we all love using dark colors but this may cause your nails to become discolored. Secondly, always use a base coat. By using a base coat, you’re adding in a protective layer between your nails and the polish. This will also help to prevent staining and can actually help keep your nails healthier.
