Manicures is something that a lot of girls are obsessed with. They cannot go out of their house without a gorgeous manicure. And they also really like playing with their nails by inventing new kinds of nail designs and decorations.
On the other hand, there are the women who want to have beautiful manicure every time, but they simply find it very hard to apply nail polish flawlessly, or to try some new manicure ideas.
Well, if you are one of these girls, do not worry. Today we have prepared for you some quite useful nail hacks that will help you master the magic of nail art, or at least you will become better at applying nail polish. Here they are!
#1 Use a rubber band to secure your cuticles
Just think about all the times you wanted to apply nail polish on your nails, but you accidentally apply some on your cuticles as well. This is really annoying because it does not look good when your cuticles have nail polish on. That is why you could try this little trick.
Just get a rubber band and tie it around your finger where your cuticle is. This way when you apply the nail polish your cuticles will be safe.You only need to make sure that the rubber band is tightly secured on your finger. It is quite easy to do and cheap as a matter of fact.
#2 Use a bobby pin to create nail art
The next thing you can try is for those of you who love interesting nail art ideas and are not much into one-color nail polish. You could simply use a bobby pin to divide your nails in two vertical straight parts. Just place the bobby pin on your fingertip vertically and paint one half of the nail in color you choose.
It would be best if you first applied another color all over your nail and then with the help of the bobby pin to apply another color on one of the nail halves. You could do the same using some scotch tape, but this hack is a bit easier and faster to do.
#3 Create your own nail polish remover
You can use this nail hack when you are out of nail polish. It could happen to anyone so if you are in a hurry and want to remove your nail polish fast, just try this. Mix equal parts of white vinegar and lemon juice. Dip a cotton ball in the mixture and apply it on your nails and let it sit there for some time.
Or you can simply dip your fingertips into the mixture. Actually it will take you more time to remove your nail polish with these ingredients than compared to using normal nail polish remover. It would takes you about 15 minutes to do it, or more, but it will be worth the try.
#4 Apply glitter nail polish like a pro
If you love glitter on your nails, then you would be thrilled about this hack. Just think about the many timesyou applied glitter nail polish on, but it simply did not look good because there was not enough glitter on your nails, certainly not as much as you would want. You probably had to apply several coats on to meet the desired effect.
Well, let me tell you that you simply applied glitter nail polish the wrong way. What you actually need to do is this: first you need to apply base coat on your clean nails. And then you need to apply some liquid latex around your nails so that there is no glitter that is accidentally applied on your skin.
And the most important thing you need to do is to get a sponge. It could be a cosmetic sponge, even a beauty blender if you have some extra one. And then apply a coat of the glitter nail polish onto the sponge.
Just put it on the edge of the sponge. Make it as big as your nails are. And then simply start dabbing the sponge with the glitter on your nail. And voila, all the glitter that is on the sponge will be passed onto your nails.
This happened because the sponge absorbed the nail polish and left the glitter on top. And when you applied it on your base-covered nails the glitter was able to stick to your nails perfectly. And now you already know how to apply glitter nail polish like a pro.
