3 GENIUS HOUSEHOLD NAIL HACKS
When it comes to your mani, anything that saves time (and makes your nails prettier) is a must-do. We repurposed basic household supplies—aka the white stuff—for these not-so-basic hacks.
White polish, a clean makeup sponge and scotch tape make ombre stripes a snap. Use white polish to mix varying shades of your favourite colour. Tape your nails into horizontal and vertical stripes. With a clean makeup sponge, swoop though the three colours, then swipe over your taped nails. Remove the tape once the polish is dry and finish with a top coat.
We all love the look of glitter polish, but can’t stand how hard it is to get it off. Paint on white glue as a base coat for your glitter. Removal couldn’t be easier: It peels right off!
CLEAN AND BRIGHT
Whitening toothpaste isn’t just for teeth. With a nail – or toothbrush, scrub the paste into nails and brush polish stains away. Rinse and repeat, if necessary, then treat your bright, clean nails to hand lotion or cuticle cream.
