Fashion photographers love to use hands in close ups to frame the face or simply add interest to a shot. Whether you pay a visit to the salon or beautify yourself at home, make sure that your nails are ready for their photo shoot debut!

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.
