Tips, Tricks and Life Hacks | white nail polish

You’re mad not to use a base coat before you paint your nails.  It helps protect your nails against staining from coloured polish.

By switching your base coat to white nail polish, you get the same level of protection but applying the coloured polish over the top of a white base really makes your colour pop!

It intensifies the colour in the same way applying a pale-coloured primer to your eyelids makes your eyeshadow colour appear stronger and more bright.

Tips, Tricks and Life Hacks | no more stains

This is a beauty life hack for the more pale skinned.  The contrast of a dark colour against pale skin can be stunning.

The look of your hands and skin after removing the remnants of the dark nail polish?  Stunning in a different way.  Serial killer is not really an awesome look.

Applying a thick layer of hand cream to your skin and cuticles before removing the dark colour will prevent your skin being stained.  It’s so Captain Obvious, right?  But it works!

Tips, Tricks and Life Hacks | papaw protection

Before painting your nails, paint your cuticles.  Just grab a cotton bud and smear some papaw cream all over your cuticles.  This is an easy peasy lemon squeezy way to clean up any wonky bits.

Any over runs will stick to the papaw cream, not your cuticles, making wiping little mishaps away a simple task.

Just make sure you wipe another cotton bud with nail polish remover over your nail bed before applying your polish.

When your nails are locked in dry, papaw cream makes an amazeballs cuticle cream too.
