The Tuesday Tip: Polish Prep

Do you ever get unexplained streaks when painting your nails or, worse, nail polish that recedes from the nail tip the second it's applied? Well if you do, I have a little trick that you are going to love.

The trick is to wipe each nail with acetone nail polish remover before applying nail polish - even if you aren't wearing any nail polish to begin with. Now this may seem a little backwards but, trust me, it works like a dream!

Wiping nails with acetone nail polish remover will strip the nail of dirt and oil, making them very dry. This will then create a rough nail surface, enabling the polish to apply more evenly and stay in place!
