Holi 2020 is just a day away and if you are busy prepping up for tomorrow and missed doing a pre-Holi nail care then you must take some time for it right away. We all love this festival of colours, getting drenched in colours. However, the struggle starts after the celebrations are over. Getting rid of Holi colours is not an easy task and washing these out can be a real pain. 

Just like your face and hair, your nails also need proper attention pre and post Holi. Your hands stay dipped in colours and coloured water for hours and this can damage your nails in the long run. 

Pre-Holi Care

If you don't want the harmful colours to stick to your nails then apply transparent nail paint on your nails. This will make it easy for you to remove the colours from your nails after playing Holi. 

Another trick is to apply a dark shade nail polish on your nails. A darker shade will not allow the colour to stick to your nails and keep them neat and clean. If you wear a lighter shade then it will absorb more colours.

Post-Holi Care

Holi colours make your nails dull and breakable. To prevent your hair from breaking, you can soak your hands in water. Make sure you don't use hot water as it will make the colours stick to your nails. Use cold water or water at room temperature to dip your nails.
