Your fingernails are something that's really important but easy to forget about when getting your senior portraits taken. Your hands are running through your hair, framing your face and a central part of showing off gorgeous you. Getting a manicure the day before your session is a great idea but at the bare minimum, make sure you don't have any old chipping polish on your nails and that your hands are moisturized. Add a clear top coat and you are good to go! Want a little more polish in your senior pictures? I love nudes and light pinks.
