The Secret to Not Getting Nail Polish on Your Skin Revealed
December 04, 20152 min read
Let's face it. Painting your own nails is a giant chore, which is why we often dish out stacks of cash to get them professionally done. But sometimes, a gal's gotta pay rent, and has to forgo a trip to the salon. Though you try to embrace the nude nail look to the best of your abilities, there's just something complete about freshly painted nails, so you give in and crack open your polish to get the job done yourself.
Aside from it being a daunting and annoying task, it's also frustrating. See, no matter how meticulous you try to be, nail polish still ends up all over your hands. You try to leave it alone, but it bothers you so much that you begin to touch it up while your pretty nails are still wet, and then you ruin them. UGH!
Thankfully, there's a foolproof way to deal with this situation, so listen up.

1. Use Vaseline
"Take a tiny cotton bud and use it to rub Vaseline around your surrounding skin and cuticles before you apply polish," explains Alexaundra McCormick of Honey Artists. "If you get the polish on your skin, it won't stick because of the jelly." Just be careful not to get the Vaseline on your actual nails though.
2. Paint your polish on
Once you're all done prepping you can begin to paint your nails.
3. Wipe off the excess stuff
"After your nails are dry, you can wipe off the Vaseline or wash your hands - any polish on your skin will come right off," notes McCormick. You'll be able to perfectly paint your nails every single time!
