How to Get a Perfect At-Home Manicure
"I can't always achieve the cool nail-art designs I want with my own hands, so I love using decals. My key to making them last: Follow with a clear topcoat, and be sure to cover the edge of the nail to create a total seal. It keeps the corners from peeling, while giving more of an authentic painted look, so you can pretend you really do have crazy nail skills." —Kathryn Romeyn, BeautyBender.com
"Want to try the matte nail trend without buying a special polish? As you're making your favorite soup or pasta, paint nails with two coats of polish, then, while they're still wet, hold your fingertips over the steam for a few seconds. Watch the magic happen: Your tips will turn from glossy to matte." —Michelle Phan, YouTube.com/User/MichellePhan
