The Secret to Not Getting Nail Polish on Your Skin Revealed

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. [bctt tweet="The Secret to Not Getting Nail Polish on Your Skin Revealed"]
