How to Get the Perfect Summer Nails

Summer nails

Summer is practically here, and it’s time to start working on your manicure. There are two main trends for summer 2024: bold and experimental, or minimalistic and understated. Whatever your nail aesthetic is, the secret to the perfect summer nails is keeping a travel cuticle oil in your bag.

Whether you’re jetting off on vacation or working on your tan at home, summer is the best time to start experimenting with your nails. While the summer months are the perfect time to experiment with color, you’ll want to give your nails a little extra TLC.


We’re sharing the four-step nailcare routine that will give you the perfect manicure to show off this summer.


1.    Use an Oil-Based Polish Remover to Clean Your Nails

Before you can start your manicure, it’s crucial to prepare your nails. Don’t chip off your old nail polish. Instead, use a polish remover to clean your nails. Avoid using an acetone-based formula and choose an oil-based nail polish remover to remove any remaining polish, dirt, or oils from your nails. Wash your hands with a gentle soap afterward.

2.   File and Softly Sharpen Your Nails

The first step to any manicure is to shape your nails. Freshly filed nails are easier to paint as you have a smooth surface to apply the polish to, making it less likely to chip.


While longer nails might look aesthetically pleasing, a shorter length is easier to maintain and less likely to break. Give your nails an even shape with a smooth finish, rounding off the corners. File your nails in one direction to prevent splitting.


3.   Invest in a Travel Cuticle Oil

At Aparascent, we’re proud to have the best cuticle oil on the market.

4.   Use a Hand Cream with SPF

Your hands are one of the first parts of your body to show signs of aging. They struggle with the same wear and tear as your nails. Healthy hands make it easier to maintain your manicure and keep your nails looking fresh. Protect your nails by using a hand cream with SPF as part of your morning routine to keep your skin smooth and healthy.
