I had planned to publish a completely different post that’s part of my Friday Find series, but I managed to lose the photos that I took of the product. How the heck did I do that? Now I’ve gotta take new pix, but I’ve used the product. Oh well. And it’s dark out now so I can’t take the photos. I’ll wait till another Friday.
So this is my last minute idea.
If you want to do a quick French mani or paint your tips a different shade from the rest of your nail, and you don’t have any nail vinyls or strips on hand, here’s a hack you can try.
First paint your nails with clear polish or whatever shade you want on the main part of your nail. Let the polish dry completely.
Grab a rubber band (or an “elastic” as we call it here in New England), and tie a knot in the middle.
Then place one loop of the rubber band on one nail tip and the other loop on your thumb, and pull the rubber band tight. Place the rubber band so that the tip is exposed. Paint the tip whatever shade you like. Carefully remove the rubber band, and go on to the next finger.
If the rubber band gets too dirty with polish, just grab another one. I’ve got quite a rubber band collection on hand. 😀 Apply a top coat once you’re finished with your tips.
This was my first attempt, and they’re not perfect. But it came out OK. I’m going to practice more. Not a bad hack, I think.
Have you ever tried this?
