Frequently Asked Questions

How can I achieve flawless nails?

Achieving flawless nails is more than just the product you use. 

  • Maintain a healthy diet rich in minerals and vitamins, especially biotin, calcium, and vitamin E, as they promote nail health.
  • Stay hydrated as water will keep your nails and cuticles hydrated from the inside out.
  • Keep your nails moisturised regularly. We keep a bottle of our Natural Nail Oil in our handbags and by our computer for regular applications throughout the day
  • When applying NailKind nail polish, we highly recommend using our Natural Base Coat which will help protect your nails as well as prevent staining – particularly with those stronger autumnal colours
  • Don’t rush your mani. Whilst NailKind products are quick drying, we recommend leaving plenty of time between each coat
  • Finally for that extra flawless nails finishing touch, we always use Mist You Natural Top Coat to protect the mani and add some more gloss.

What are the best Autumnal Nail Colours?

Autumn is a season known for its rich and warm colour palette. When it comes to choosing the best autumnal nail polishes, think about shades that mimic the colours of falling leaves, cozy sweaters, and the overall ambiance of the season.
