1. Start with the Sally Hansen 2-in-1 nail white pencil ($2.59 at drugstores). This genius pencil also comes with a cuticle pusher on the cap. First, file your nails so they are even, and wash them to get all the dirt off. Then, take the pencil and color the underside of your nail tips until they are white. Viola, you now have a pretty french manicure!
2. Next, take your second product, Neutrogena instant nail enhancer ($7 at drugstores). Brush this vitamin rich, not quite polish on-it has a sheen and instantly makes your nails look neat, but washes away gradually (so you never need remover). This also acts as a nail strengthener.
3. Last, keep your nails looking moisturized with a cuticle oil or balm. There are a million of them out there, I have always liked Creative Solar Oil ($7.99 at beauty supply stores), and Burts Bees Lemon Cuticle Balm ($3.99). Apply at least once a day to keep hangnails away.
Well, there you have it! Now that you have taken care of all your nail problems, you can turn your attention to other pressing issues, such as the perfect summer beach read. Let me know what you decided on!
