Pop of Pretty: Guest Post from Elle Sees

Hello My Smitten's
Today I have an awesome post from Elle of Elle Sees .  I absolutely adore Elle's blog .  It is the place I go to get up to date beauty tips and tricks.   I love it because she doesn't just talk about products, she goes into great detail and oftentimes provide a tutorial.  I am thrilled to have her here today!  Enjoy!    

Hi! I'm Elle, from ElleSees.blogspot.com, a lifestyle blog about all things beauty. The easiest way to add a pop of pretty is to do your nails. Check out some of my fave tips for nails:

  • Stained Nails--Try whitening toothpaste! Or this post which lists other options.
  • Glitter Polish Removal--Take a cotton ball or tissue, soak in polish remover, and place on top of nail. Then wrap fingers in a bit of tin foil, yes, really! Leave for about 5 minutes and the polish will come right off.
  • Out of Polish Remover--No polish remover? No problem. Just paint any color of polish on top of your existing polish. Wipe away the polish. It really works and is great if you're in a pinch. Also try hand sanitizer!
  • Easy Clean--Try using a small concealer or art brush to clean around the nail bed after painting. I use this one from ELF and it's only $1.
  • New polish--Make your own new shade of polish by taking any shade of eye shadow, scraping a little onto a paper plate, and then mix with clear polish. Paint on nails! Try this post for pictures and descriptions.
  • Make Neons Pop--Try a coat of white polish before painting your nails with neon polish. The color won't be as streaky and the color will pop!
  • Make Metallics Pop--Try a coat of black before painting a metallic polish.
  • Quick Dry--Cooking spray, clear dry shampoo, or cold water can help dry nails faster. You'll know your nails are dry when they stop smelling like polish.
