How can I make my lipstick stay on longer?

Investing in a lip liner that complements your lipstick will help. You can either outline your lips or apply the liner over the whole of the lips before applying lipstick.

How can I avoid hangnails?

Hangnails are caused by dehydration. To avoid, use a good quality handcream and cuticle cream at night before bed. Please dont cut them as they will grow back thicker!

Essence recommend Phenomen Oil, Nourish, Jessica Hand Creams and Clarins Hand Creams.

 

I bite my nails and want to kick the habit. What should I do?

Try JESSICA Nibble No More – everyday. It contains Bitter Cactus extract which has a revolting flavour.

Also have GELeration professionally applied – the gel manicure protects your natural nail and allows them to grow, providing a layer of strength.

My nail polish goes thick after a while. How can I stop that happening?

Always keep polishes some where cool and out of the sun. Keep the lid clean and bottle upright. To thin polish try Jessica Reward base, add a couple of drops to polish and mix.

Is it true that wearing nail polish constantly is bad for nails, as it stops them breathing?

This is a misconception. Nails like hair are dead tissue so do not need to breathe. In fact, painting tends to give nails extra strength and helps prevent peeling and splitting.

How often should I clean my make-up brushes?

Once a week to keep them clean and hygienic.  Use either a specific brush cleaner or baby shampoo, rinse thoroughly and leave them flat to dry completely.

How can I make my polish last longer?

Always create a good base and make sure the nails are really clean. Apply a base coat, two coats of colour and a top coat.

I wear dark shades on my toenails and they are now discoloured. What shall I do?

While you wait for the staining to grow out, use Jessica nail whitener as a concealer.

To prevent staining always use a base coat to act as a barrier and always remove polish after no more than 3 weeks, as nails are porous and absorb pigment .
