In the weeks prior to your photo shoot, moisturize your hands often and try to grow out any bitten or scraggly nails. TPS stylist Hannah suggests you “Use a rich moisturizer, followed by a 5 minute soak in soapy water to soften those cuticles perfectly. Then simply push them back with a cuticle stick, shape the nails and apply two coats of clear polish.”
For a photo shoot we recommend a clear or neutral nail polish in order to not distract attention from your face. A one colour palette is the safest bet. If you are seeking a splash of colour (a classic red for example), then whatever you do make sure that it compliments your outfits! The last thing you need is a colour clash and emergency re-polish!
Oh and one last thing… DON’T FORGET THE TOE NAILS! People often go barefoot in a shoot or wear heels with exposed toes.
