FAQs

Q: No matter what I do, whether I paint my own nails or get a professional manicure, I end up chipping my polish within a day. How can I maintain a perfect manicure?

A: If you use your hands a lot and chips are unavoidable, be prepared for touch-ups. Just pat and smooth a tiny bit of nail polish remover on your chip or smudge. When the remover dries, apply your polish to the damaged area. Then, apply another coat of polish to your entire nail to even everything out, and apply a topcoat. Let your nails dry for at least 10 minutes to ensure the quick-fix lasts.

Q: I love getting my nails done professionally and trying out new trends and colors myself. Lately, I’ve seen nail polishes labeled “3-Free.” What does that mean?

A: 3-Free means that the polish does not contain three ingredients considered toxic and potentially harmful. These three ingredients are formaldehyde, toluene and dibutyl phthalate. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified formaldehyde as a known carcinogen, or cancer-causing agent. The Environmental Protection Agency cites that toluene can cause harm to organs and is a toxic substance. Scientists have said that dibutyl phthalate may cause bodily harm. These chemicals cause the most damage through inhalation, so unless you know that your nail polish is 3-free, make sure you do your nails in a well-ventilated area. Some non-toxic brands are Butter LONDON and Spa Ritual.

Q: Even though I clean my cuticle cutter frequently, my nail beds get red and irritated. What’s the best way to prep and clean my nails before painting them?

A: Dermatologists caution against cutting your cuticles because removing that protective layer of skin can invite infection. As dermatologist Richard Scher tells WebMD, “If you remove the cuticle, that space is wide open, and anything can get in there.” Instead of cutting your cuticles, gently push them back with a wooden manicure stick like Tweezerman Manicure Pedicure Sticks. Don’t forget to moisturize regularly with an ointment or cream to keep your skin supple and nails healthy.

Q: I've never been a fan of beets by themselves, but I've heard that they can be prepared in different ways. What are some ways to make them tastier?

A: If you've tried plain beets, you might want to consider pickled beets. These are beets which are soaked or boiled in white wine vinegar along with other flavorings, such as peppercorn, horseradish or allspice berries. Experiment with different recipes or cooking methods. If you'd like to have a nearly-red plate of salad, consider making tomato and beet salad. Just mix finely sliced tomatoes, beets, and add your favorite dressing and condiments. Or consider making a combination of pickled rather than plain beets. You can also add peppers, spices, cheese or whatever toppings you like for taste.
