'Tis the season to show off your toes!  I'm one of those girls that rarely paints her fingernails, but my toenails?  That's a different story.  I like the darker shades of nail polish, like browns and golds, and the french manicure is my favorite.  Here are some tips that might help you get the best out of the toe show season.

This is a really neat trick.  If you need those nails to dry just a little bit faster, run to the kitchen and grab the PAM.  That's right.  Your non stick cooking spray can actually help you dry your nails faster.  They might have a little bit of an oily residue, so make sure you wait a few minutes before you wipe it off.


I'm not much for glitter polish.  It feels like sand paper on my toes. BUT!  If you brave the terrible feeling stuff, you know that getting it off is almost impossible.  A great way to get that stuff off, is to soak some cotton balls in nail polish remover, wrap them around your nails, and then put tinfoil around it to sit for a few minutes. This will help you remove that terrible stuff!  My suggestion:  Don't wear it.  Wear something smooth.  :-)


I hate this.  I just painted my toes and fingers last week, and I have a ton of air bubbles in my ring finger polish!  How frustrating.  To avoid this you should hold the bottle between your palms and rub your hands back and forth to stir the polish.  If you shake the bottle, like me, you're going to create bubbles in the mix and it will leave your nails looking all bubbly.

Try these neat tricks and have nails looking their very best during the warm summer months.
