I really have no talents at all for giving myself a manicure. I keep trying, but believe it or not it never occurred to me to look up instructions from the internet. (sometimes I wonder about me..)
Soak nails in a solution of white vinegar and water it cleans your nails perfectly and also helps the nail polish adhere better.
If you use dark polish, just brush your nails after removing it with whitening tooth paste.
My nails break all the time and I use glue, but I never could do a good job, this is a good trick. Fix your nail with a tea bag and glue.
Instead of applying a thick coat which I have the tendency to do, apply multiple thin coats.
Use an old make up brush to correct your boo boos, just dip it in polish remover and brush your nail lightly. I have a feeling I will be using this brush quite often.
I do this all the time, but I had no idea that I could correct my smudges by licking them, apparently your tongue can also do wonders, please lick your nail polish, don’t eat.
Use nail polish thinner to thin your nail polish, don’t use remover it will not work. (Now I know)
I never knew why my nails were covered with mini bubbles, well it is the humidity, so when it is humid outside you have to double your drying time.
For drying you nails quickly, let them dry for a few minutes and soak your fingers in ice water.
Wow! you can use Vaporub to treat nail infections, it is said that thymol works on bacterial and yeast infections, this is the first time I hear this, so if it works for you, please share it with us.
