DIY for white and shiny nail
Well, it's not a surprise, you know, my hands and I, it's a real love story. I am always ready to buy all the products from all over the world for having them to be perfect.
Except that lately, I had a bad karma :
1. I moved out from my small studio two weeks ago, but I will moved in my new apartment with my roommate only next week (yes I speak am homeless at the moment), and my nails not necessarily appreciated to carry furniture and heavy box...
2. In addition, they find themselves totally delivered to themselves since my move out and my future, I have not had the clue to take my beloved nail and hand addict kit for and that it is now in the depths of a storage behind tone of plates, furniture, suitcases, and other odds and ends.
But its solution to every problem, I decided to take things in hand, with what I had available.
It was a while that we talked with Alexandra and Nelly, about to publish small beauty DIY easily to achieved. Because we speak a lot about skincare and other miracle products, but sometimes the simplest things are the most effective.
So today an easy 5-step DIY, and really cheap for a super great manicure!
You need :
- A nail file
- A bowl of warm water
- Half a lemon
- 3 teaspoons of baking soda
- A nail brush
- White vinegar
- Cotton balls
1. Begin by file your nails to give them a nice shape and prevent them to split.
2. Then, to make them white and clean, pour the juice of half a lemon in a bowl of warm water and add 3 teaspoons of baking soda. Stir the whole (do not panic, the reaction of lemon and baking is normal) and soak your hands for about 5 minutes.
No more yellow and dirty fingernails, here's all clean and white!
3. For the shine, soak a cotton with white vinegar and tap gently on your entire nail. I know the smell is not the most pleasant (you should have seen my face when I opened the bottle) but it's worth it!
4. For a more flawless and white finish, pour a little amount of baking soda on your wet nail brush and rub. This will remove the recalcitrant residues that are not went away during the lemon bath. If you are in a hurry in the morning, this step may be enough for a quick clean shot;)
5. Finally, moisturize your hands well, in addition to nourish your skin, this will remove the smells of lemon and white vinegar! (Big crush for this Cowshed hand cream that smells like grapefruit and coriander.)
And here, once all these steps are done, you just have to choose your nail polish shade of the season, selected by Nelly here!
