Our nails are one of the places that attract attention to us. We don’t want to be caught in public with bad nails. Often, we are caught up with a lot of activities that we may not be able to visit a nail salon to take care of our nails. Not to worry if you are so busy that you are unable to give your nails the attention they desire.
We have the perfect nail art hacks you will use in upgrading your manicure. At home, you can create professional nail art with the following hacks.
- A Sponge
With the support of sponge you can create ombre mani. You begin by getting the nails painted with the lightest colour as the base. You need a flat surface to help you swirl the two polishes in concert with a toothpick. Use the sponge in dabbing onto the polish for a few times before you can blot onto the tips.
- A Sharpie
You need a Sharpie to develop streak free styles. When you apply your base colour, make use of a thin sharpie in drawing straight right on the nail polish to create amazing designs.
- Paper Reinforcement
Thinking of creating a half moon mani? Make use of paper reinforcements.
- A Rubberband
With a rubberband, you can create that French mani that is perfect. All you need do is tie the rubberband in the center, then loop one of the ends over the thumb to make sure that tension is created on the band. Align the other end of the rubber over the top of the nails. This will create the French tip shape. You will make use of a curved line in place of stencil to paint the nail’s tip.
- The tips are soaked in ice water immediately after painting them to help them dry fast.
- The mani can last longer when you swipe the edge of the nail with a topcoat that is clear.
- You can make your customized glitter polish when you mix your favourite craft store glitter together with a clear topcoat.
- Make use of a white base coat in making neon polishes seriously pop.
