No matter how nice your nail colors are, or how expensive your manicure from the salon may be, it all boils down to nothing when you have nails that unpleasant to look at. If you want to have the perfect looking manicure, you have to make sure you have the perfect base to use as canvass as well. This, along with a few more tips, tricks, and hacks will help you achieve the perfect manicure every time. You don’t even have to go to the salon for it.
- Broken nail fix – your manicure won’t look as pretty as it should if your nails are broken. To fix a broken nail, follow this simple tutorial. With this hack, you can have the perfect looking manicure to cover up your broken nail.
- Easy nail polish removal – don’t you just hate how difficult it is to completely get rid of the old color on your nails? Switching from dark to light colors is tough to achieve when you have stubborn old dark polish residue on. Here’s a quick and easy way to get rid of all your old nail polish with just one cotton pad / ball.
- Seal the look – make your manicure last longer by sealing the look. To do this, run the brush through the edge / tip of your nails as you finish it. This simple step can help make a big difference in your manicure (and even pedicure!), especially if you have long nails.
- Dab glitter polish – a lot of girls already know about this trick from watching SimplyNailogical on Youtube but in case you don’t watch her, here’s a trick that will make all your glitter polish dreams come true. Instead of brushing on glitter polish, take a makeup sponge and dab it on. The sponge will absorb a good amount of the polish and will leave glitters that will transfer nicely on your nails.
- Build up the color – instead of one thick layer, do several thin layers of nail polish when you paint your nails. This will prevent your manicure from peeling off or chipping too quickly. It will also keep your nail colors from smudging.
- Use a peel-off base coat – if you love switching nail colors often, using acetone to remove old color on your nails can turn them yellow. To avoid this, use a peel-off base coat. It will make switching to new colors on the future a whole lot easier.
