10 Essential DIY Manicure Tips You Need To Know About

Make a cheap and easy dotter for your nails. Just stick a pin into a pencil eraser.

Spray nails with oil spray to set your manicure and prevent smudges

Erase mistakes by dipping a tiny brush into nail polish remover. Use an old paintbrush or an eyeliner brush (perhaps the felt tip of an old liquid liner that dried up?) that you don’t care for anymore.

Use ice water to dry your nails in three minutes.

Follow this diagram to imitate how professional manicurists apply nail polish.

Apply multiple thin coats instead of one thick coat. A thick coat of nail polish will only dry at the top layer, leaving your manicure vulnerable to smudges.

Easily paint a heart with a toothpick. 

Don’t sit near a fan. You might think it’ll help the nail polish dry faster, but the drafty air will just make bubbles and ruin your polish.

Use VapoRub for nail infections. The ingredient thymol works on bacterial and yeast infections of the nail plate.

The first coat of chunky glitter polishes should be dabbed, not brushed on. This will help to distribute the glitter evenly and get the big chunks where you want them. If all else fails, use a toothpick to move the chunks of glitter around.
