Tip Tuesday/Thursday 2

Hey everyone! We're posting another Tip Tuesday/Thursday today!  So today's theme is nails, so here are my three favorite nail hacks/tips and their links:

1)Thinking about purchasing a matte topcoat? Don't bother! You can do it yourself with something you probably already have. To turn glossy nails matte, you can take a clear topcoat and mix it with a pinch of cornstarch. Then when you paint the topcoat over your nail polish, it creates matte nails.

I also liked the look of these matte grey nails, looks very chic!

2) You can also use another common household item to make nail designs: tape. To do so, paint the tape your desired color and when it dries, cut out your design. I prefer to just do stripes because they are the easiest haha. Then stick the tape design on your nails and finish with a topcoat.

This was a picture tutorial for tape nails stickers done by the beauty department.

3) Lastly, if you're like me and you spill a lot, this will turn out to be quite helpful. If you drop a bottle of nail polish and spill it, pouring sugar over it makes the nail polish clump so you can sweep it up.


This was the picture I found on Pinterest (A link to our interest account if you want to follow :) http://www.pinterest.com/wishable/ )
that described this tip. Unfortunately, like many pins on Pinterest it led to a dead link and I could not find credit for this tip but here is the link to the pin: http://www.pinterest.com/pin/451908143832284687/











I also really like this picture because it combines our tips (assuming someone spilled nail polish in the process) and it's a really cute idea! Let us know if you try it!








Thanks so much for reading and I hope you learned something new, or were inspired to do a new style of nails. (Doing my nails right after this) We'll post another one of these on Thursday so stay tuned!
We love you!
