Nail Polish Hack

Am I the only one that feels naked without my nails done? It kills me when I don't have anything on, I feel incomplete. Oh the struggle! ;) I've been working on a nice at home manicure for awhile. I think I finally have something that will last more than 24-48 hours. I use 4 different products and that's including the actual nail color.

1. The first thing I do is file my nails and buff them. After buffing them, I used a dehydrator. This prevents the nail polish from shrinking. I used to wash my nails after buffing but if your nails aren't dry, the nail polish will shrink causing the nail polish to not be on the slightest tip of your nail which is an easy place for a chip. What that means is--when your nails are wet they grow, when they dry they shrink. So dehydrator is what I have turned to and I love it! You can get it from Sally Beauty supply or any beauty store!

2.  Following the dehydrator I put a coat of Gelous nail polish. This acts as a gel base coat almost and has improved my nail wear immensely.

3. Once that dries (and it does quickly), I put whatever color I am feeling like on! Lately it's been light pinks-- I've always been a sucker for those.

4. Lastly, I use either Out the Door top coat or Seche Lite. Both are awesome and work extremely well!!
