Watch and Learn These DIY Hacks to Achieve That Salon-Level Manicure

This is how you fix those dreaded, chipped nails.

Anyone who has ever tried painting their own nails will know how difficult it is to recreate that perfect, salon-quality manicure. To learn some handy at-home fixes, take the cue of Allure’s recent video in which a beauty expert demonstrates three clever manicure hacks. To ensure a clean finish, outline your cuticles with the slightest amount of glue by using a small brush. You can then paint your nails without worrying that the nail polish will bleed. All you have to do is to peel off the glue once your nails are completely dry.

In addition, the video also shows a brilliant way to fix those dreaded, chipped nails – simply apply a layer of glittery nail polish on top of the existing layer, and your nails will look as good as new. As for the final hack, it is designed to make neon nail varnishes stand out. In order to make vibrant neon colors pop, apply a white base coat on your nails before you paint the neon polish on top.

Watch the tutorial clip above to learn more and to try it for yourself. You can also head over here to learn the DIY hack for removing gel manicures at home.
