20 Nail Hacks, Tips and Tricks Every Girl Needs To Know Now

Although it may sound silly, I have to admit that I am really obsessed with how my nails look. I get anxious whenever my nails need to be filed or the polish is chipped – I generally feel a lot better about my overall appearance if my nails look nice.

I usually try to get a manicure once a week, but sometimes I don’t have time, so I do my nails at home instead. At-home manicures have the potential to be very messy and a little dangerous. It is WAY too easy to mess up your manicure! That’s why I really rely on tips and hacks like the ones below. They make your at-home mani that much easier – and most of them even work if you’re getting your nails done somewhere. Want to get amazing nails in very little time? Read these 20 nail hacks, tips and tricks right now.
