A great manicure can leave you feeling loved and pampered, but at times doing your nails at home can be messy and time-consuming. However, here are 10 easy tips that will help you save money yet achieve a glossy look without going to the salon.
10 tricks to do a perfect manicure at home:
1. Coat your cuticles with Vaseline to protect the skin
If your cuticles are rough, you can coat them with Vaseline. This will also protect the skin around your cuticles from extra brushstrokes of Bluesky nail polish. All you would need is a cotton bud to wipe any excess nail colour on the skin and get a mess-free manicure.
2. How to quickly dry your nails
If you don’t have the time for your Bluesky gel polish to dry properly and you want a quick hack. You can leave your nail for thirty seconds and then dip them in a bowl of ice water, this will make your nails dry in seconds, and you would be good to go.
3. Toothpaste is amazing to get rid of stains
A manicure can often leave stubborn deep red stains on your nails or cuticles. To get rid of these stains you can use a nail brush and toothpaste. Scrub gently to remove stains and give your nail more shine.
4. You can always use a pencil to place gems on your nails
If you want your nails to have a creative look and you want to experiment with nail art, use a pencil instead of tweezers. The lead of a pencil will easily pick up the gemstones and help you place them on your wet nails.
5. Prep for glitter nail polish removal
Glitter nail polish can be a hassle to remove. You can try using a craft glue as your base coat before applying Bluesky glitter polish. This will help the polish easily peel off once you’re ready to change the look of your nails.
6. Roll polish bottles instead of shaking them
If you have noticed tiny air bubbles arising in your nails after they are painted with Bluesky gel polish. It is because when you shake the bottle of nail polish, it causes air bubbles. To avoid this, always roll your Bluesky bottle between the palms of your hands instead of shaking the bottle.
7. Use eye shadow to create a new nail color
You will often find loose or broken eye shadow lying around your vanity table. Here’s how you can bring them to use instead of throwing them away. You can mix the pigments of different eye shadows together with some clear Bluesky nail varnish, and this will give you a brand new nail colour.
8. Thin coats are the key to fast dry your manicures
Usually, you put one or two thick layers of Bluesky gel polish which can take quite some time to dry. If you want your colour to dry quickly, try applying in multiple thin coats. This will allow you to get multiple coats in lesser time.
- How to get your manicure to last longer
If want to make your Bluesky nail colours stay longer, clean your nails with a cotton bud soaked in distilled vinegar. The clean surface will help you maintain your manicure and make it last longer.
10. Use an eraser for dotted nail art
If you’re in the mood to do some nail art, but you’re an amateur at arts and crafts. Take a pin and stick one end to any eraser. Use the eraser part as your holder, dip the pin in Bluesky gel polish and design away.
