Teen Vogue beauty editor Eva Chen stopped by the Birchbox office yesterday, and in between talking travel (she’s constantly bopping around the world) and social media (you must follow her on Twitter and Tumblr), she also gave us a foolproof at-home mani tip:
Foundations first! Chen says it’s all about the base coat. She likes OPI Chip Skip, which is like a second version of acetone that dehydrates your nail (sounds scary but it’s not!) before you apply your base coat. You can also try Orly Bonder, which is a rubberized base coat that sticks to the lacquer.
Now comes the hard part: What color polish? We’re feeling blue — in a good way!
