The Best Lazy Girl Nail Hacks On The Internet




Even being the beauty obsessive I am, I’m often guilty of neglecting my nails. It can seem such a fiddly and time-consuming task, both to maintain and to apply.  Make your life a little bit easier and perfect that polished look every day by mastering these time-saving tips for low effort, high impact nails.




#1 Spray ‘Em On

If you struggle with achieving a precise application, then the Nails Inc Paint Can Spray On Polish is made for you! The formula adheres to your nails, but won’t stick to your skin – simply spray on and wipe away for a perfect finish every time!

#2 Set Them In Place

A top coat is essential to maintaining your manicure and there certainly plenty to choose from! Use a top coat that not only improves the longevity of your varnish but actually encourages your nails to dry faster like the Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat. Make sure to apply your top coat not just to the edge, but over the tip of the nail. This seals the varnish in place, making it more resistant to wear and tear.

#3 Make Less Mess

Protect against those annoying blobs of color that end up on your cuticles by applying a layer of Vaseline to the area around the nail, prior to application. It forms a barrier between the varnish and your skin, so once your nails are dry you can just wipe away the Vaseline, leaving perfectly clean cuticles!

#4 Clean In A Snap-Of-A-Finger

Remove more stubborn polishes like glitter formulas with this top tip. Saturate cotton pads in nail varnish remover, wrap them around each nail and secure in place with a piece of foil. Leave them to work their magic for five minutes before removing. You’ll find your polish will slide straight off!
