Give Yourself a Manicure with a Rubberband
Manicures can be fun and refreshing, but there’s no denying the damage it can do, not only to our bank accounts, but to our nails. Continual nail damage can lead to uncomfortable infections and poor nail health. Finding ways to give yourself the manicure you’re dying to have without the price, damage, or salon time, is easy.
To start, apply a base coat of clear nail polish and let it dry completely. Next, place a rubber band around your nail, leaving the tip exposed. Paint the tip of the nail with white nail polish and let it dry. Once the white polish is dry, remove the rubber band and paint the rest of the nail with a light pink or beige polish. Wait for the polish to dry completely before applying a top coat to seal in the color and add shine. With a steady hand and a rubber band, you can achieve the classic and elegant look of a French manicure from the comfort of your own home.
