4 Manicure Tips You Need For That At-Home Pamper Session

4 Manicure Tips You Need For That At-Home Pamper Session

Heading out to a party and haven’t paid attention to your nails? Don’t we love a polished look but don’t always have the time for it. Trust us when we say this, Team WODROB knows how high maintenance and time consuming it is to get one’s nails done every single time. And that’s exactly why we’ve brought you four hacks to get salon-like manicure all by yourself, at the comfort of your home.

 Glue to the rescue

For a clean and mess-free manicure, apply some glue at the corners of your nails. Wait till it dries, then apply your nail paint like you would normally do. Post this, peel off the dried glue from the edges and there, you get a professional smudge-free manicure. This trick works especially well for those who don’t have a steady hand and who struggle to apply some polish with their non-dominant hand.
WODROB Mag Tip: If not glue, Vaseline also works as well.

 Matte it out

Matte nail polish looks very classy, but it’s a product that’s usually on the pricier side. Which is why, instead of buying expensive polishes, why not make one on your own. Just add broken or expired matte eyeshadow to your clear nail polish. There you have it, your very own customised matte nail paint. It is super easy and way affordable.

 Long-lasting paint courtesy vinegar

Want long lasting and bubble free manicure? You only need vinegar and water — two ingredients that are easily-available in your kitchen. Soak your nails for a couple of minutes in a mixture of vinegar and water before applying nail polish. Vinegar helps get rid of any oils or previously applied nail paint residues.

Hairsprayed Nails

Getting a manicure is (no doubt) the best way to pamper yourself. But when you’re doing it at home, it is frustrating to sit patiently while they dry off. Quicken this process by spraying some hairspray directly on to the nails.
