How to Tidy up Messy Nails

For some reason, when it comes to having to do any sort of detailed work with my hands, such as applying liquid eyeliner, or any sort of intricate eye make-up for that matter, my hands decide to go all ‘shakey jake’ on me and not work properly. So when it comes to giving my nails a new gloss, it’s normal for me to end up with more varnish on my fingers than my nails. No matter how many times I try to give myself a neat and tidy manicure, it turns out pretty rubbish.Β So, if like me you are unable to complete the task of painting your nails neatly, here is a little tip for you:

Paint them as you normally would, even if that means getting messy fingers and cuticles. Once the paint is dry, use a cotton swab and some nail polish remover to carefully swab any unnecessary paint around the edge of your nails and cuticles. You only need a tiny bit of remover, too much may accidentally take off your freshly painted coats. About half an hour after this – once you know your nails are completely bone dry – wash your hands in soapy water to get any excess nail varnish off. Voila! Tidy nails.
