Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great holiday season! After a little break from posting and collecting some wonderful feedback from friends, I found that the Thursday Tip is quite popular. Therefore, for my first post of 2013, I am going to discuss the annoying and all too common issue of nail polish mishaps. If you are anything like me, you probably have developed some pretty elaborate plans in order to successfully leave the nail salon smudge free. Used to be, I would manage to mess my perfectly painted nails up within minutes of leaving the salon. Finally, I found a solution that works! In order to leave the salon smudge free: wait 5 minutes after applying the polish, and then place your nails under ice cold water. If possible, keep your nails submerged for at least 3 minutes. Voila! Your nails are now all set, and you can leave the salon without any worries of a nail mishap.
