Whether it is fiery red, demure ballet pink, or daring black, women love their nail polish. The worst thing that could possibly happen is leaving the nail salon and smudging your fresh manicure. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here are some nail polish hacks that will prevent smudging, help remove that clumpy polish, and give you the best French manicure ever.
Everyone knows that glitter nail polish is hard to remove. The reason being has everything to do with contact area—the larger a piece of glitter is, the more it covers on the nail. When that happens, that means that there’s more lacquer adhering to your nail under the glitter piece so tight that it requires three times the effort to remove.
Just drench a cotton ball with nail polish remover, apply it to your nail and secure with foil. Wait 5 to 10 minutes and remove the foil and cotton balls. Your nails will be clean from nail polish. This also works on gel manicures.
If you have that favorite shade that you don’t want to get rid of but it is glob-like, just add a few drops of clear nail polish. This will bring that shade back.
One of the worst things that could happen is messing up fresh nail polish when you are in a hurry. To dry them quickly, dip your fingers into ice cold water, it speeds up the dry time.
If you want to prolong the life of your manicure, apply vinegar to your nails beforehand.
Finally, to get the best French manicure, try using a Band-Aid.
