I didn’t have any time to write a post today, so here an exerpt from a slideshow I viewed on www.self.com. I hope this helps someone!
“Cheer up: bold tones make for happy toes, but they’re also quick to show a smudge.
Revive shine: Restore the luster to once-vibrant lacquer by stroking on one coat of a very pale sparkly color. We like Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquer in Bring on the Bling, $20.
Stay bright: Too much sun can cause light shades to turn tawny. Prevent yellowing with a quick coat of CND Air Dry Top Coat, $9, packed with UV absorbers.
Heal a split: Snag a nail? No sweat. Empty a tea bag and trim the paper to match the size and shape of your nail. Coat nail in nail glue (try Kiss Maximum Speed Nail Glue, $2), and press the sheet on, smoothing with an orange stick. Dry, file, then repolish.
Nix Nicks: It takes 24 hours for polish to set. (That explains those annoying chips!) Brush on Orly Smudge Fixer, $10, to diffuse color and hide boo-boos.”
I’ll write a better post tomorrow!
