Nail Hacks Tuesday

Posted on August 22, 2017 by Emily Khor

It is time for another episode of our hacks series but this time around, we are going to talk about nails (Yes, the picture says it all). All hail the nail art god, we all know how great it is to look at your fingers and see pretty nail arts decorating those small spaces. Let's get started!

1. Stronger Nails
Want to have healthy and non-easily breakable nails? Garlic is your best friend. Simply crush and peel a clove of garlic, rub it on your nails, let sit for 20 minutes and wipe it off with a damp towel soon after that.

2. Non-messy Nail Polish
Are you very clumsy when it comes to nail arts? Line the area surrounding your nails with petroleum jelly or craft glue before painting on your nail polish for an easy cleanup.

3. Dry Nail Polish Faster
You and I know cold air helps nail polish harden up, now imagine it with water. Dip wet, just applied polish nails into a bowl of cold water for two-minutes. Just be sure to wait at least one minute before doing so to allow your polish to set preliminary.

4. Prevent nail polish from smudging
You should always apply multiple thin coats instead of one thick coat. Quick reminder: Always get rid of excess nail polish it in circular motion, not pressing only one side on the bottle edge at a time.
