by 2 April 04, 2016One of my favorite beauty routines is going to the nail salon for a manicure. I'm a shellac girl, which means I'm down at my neighborhood nail salon every two(ish) weeks to get a shellac change. The beauty (and also the curse) of wearing shellac or gel on your nails is that the polish doesn't wear off; instead it grows out, leaving a crescent-shaped gap at the base of your nail. This physical symbol of my laziness is what has always prompted me into my next manicure-- until now. Today's simple trick is a clever way to both extend your manicure for another week AND pull off the easiest reverse French manicure of all time. All you need is some fingernail polish and a small eyeliner brush. And a two-week-old manicure. Optional prep: Use a small file to gently push back your cuticles. Next, grab your eyeliner brush and the polish of your choice. I decided to use a glittery gold shade for my right hand (tbh I figured a lighter shade would be easier to use with my non-dominant hand). Dip your brush into the polish and carefully paint the exposed part of each nail. Don't worry if it's not perfect-- you can always clean up your mess with some polish remover on a cotton swab. Regular strength remover won't damage your gel, either, so you can always clean up any excess polish that might get on the gel. I was genuinely surprised by how easy this was and how good it came out. So of course I decided to try something a little bolder for my left hand: navy blue. The navy definitely required more Q-tip/polish remover clean-up, but the end result is worth it. I love the bold contrast of the nude with the blue. This entire process took me around ten minutes, was completely free, and will save me a trip to the nail salon this week. I am so proud to pass along this simple trick to all you luvvies out there who appreciate the feeling of always sporting fresh-to-death nails.
