Five Manicure Must-Haves #4

This tiny tool will be your new manicure BFF. Keep a couple in your manicure bag. Always.

Use a toothpick to clean up around the cuticle and achieve that perfect 1-2mm gap. Your Sunday evening paint job will soon look totes professional. It’s much more accurate than a clunky orange stick and a zillion times more hygienic. (You won’t be using it again. #disposable)

Here are a few tips:

  1. Get all ready and out on the table, because you can’t dig in your manicure bag for a toothpick once you have started painting. You need a couple of toothpicks, cotton wool, and some nail polish remover.   IMG_20160604_221438
  2.  Use a bare toothpick to sweep away any polish that you get on the skin or cuticle while the polish is still wet. Nothing else required.                                                                                                                   IMG_20160604_221652
  3.   Too many mistakes to sweep away super fast before they dry? Dip the bare toothpick into nail polish remover so that it is quite wet                                                                                                              IMG_20160604_221722
  4. Roll the wet toothpick in a bit of the fluff on the top of your cotton wool so that it picks up a few strands.  Keep rolling the toothpick to avoid picking up too much cotton wool or picking it up unevenly.                                                                                                                      IMG_20160604_221756
  5. Flatten the cotton wool against the wet toothpick, it will absorb the nail polish remover, but it will lie flat and snug against the toothpick.                                                     IMG_20160604_221838
  6.  Now you can clean the skin and cuticle area without gouging your manicure or getting wads of fluff onto your freshly painted nails.                                                                                                                                             IMG_20160604_221925
