BEAUTY HACKS FOR GROWN-OUT MANICURES
If you ever find yourself with a grown-out manicure, save some valuable time – not to mention money! – with these quick, easy hacks to keep your nails looking fun, fresh and fashionable.
Using the brush of glitter nail varnish, dab glitter at the bottom of the nail bed, concentrating the particles as closely as possible. Then gently pull some varnish upward to create a gradient effect (heavy on glitter at bottom, light at the tips). Finish with clear nail varnish.
Choose a contrasting shade to your current manicure’s colour. Taking a thin paintbrush, fill in the spaces where the manicure has grown out (at the nail bed and along the sides). Clean up any nail varnish on your cuticles with a corrector pen or another paintbrush dipped in remover. Finish with clear nail varnish.
SCOTCH TAPE GEOMETRICS
This can be as simple as one square piece of scotch tape or several thin strips laid out over the nail, so long as it means you’ll be able to freshly paint the area that’s grown out. Stick piece (or pieces) of tape over manicure and simply paint over it with another colour. Instant nail art! Finish with clear nail varnish.
