Secret to Not Getting Nail Polish on Your Skin
Painting your nails at home is a cost-effective way to get a great manicure, but some people have a seriously tough time keeping the polish inside the lines rather than all over their cuticles and fingers. Luckily, there's a foolproof way to avoid that.
1. Apply Vaseline
Take a baby Q-tip and rub it around your surrounding skin and cuticles before you apply polish. If you get the polish on your skin, it won't stick because of the Vaseline.
2. Paint on your polish
After you prep, you can now paint your nails, perhaps even do some fun, easy nail art.
3. Wipe off
After your nails are dry, you can wipe off the Vaseline or wash your hands — any polish on your skin will come right off.
