CONSIDERING how salons have been closed for the majority of the past year, our home manicures have come a long way in that time.
But if YouTube tutorials have taught us anything, it’s that you don’t want to get polish all over your hands when you painting your nails… right?

However, beauty expert and influencer Chloe Morello claims that this is actually the key for achieving a salon-worthy manicure at home.
Earlier this week, Chloe – who co-created the reusable makeup remover Face Halo – shared a coloured French manicure tutorial with her 1.2m followers.
In the clip, Chloe begins by applying a base coat to protect her nails and stop them from staining.
Next, she applied different coloured pastel polishes from OPI on her index finger and pressed the polish onto a nail on her opposite hand.

She then removes the excess with a lip brush soaked in acetone
Although this covered the top of her finger in polish, Chloe’s trick gave a straight pink line across the top of her nail in seconds.
To get rid of the excess polish, Chloe recommended soaking a lip brush in acetone which gave her a neat and professional-looking finish.
Next, she went over with a clear top coat of polish and added some gold foil as an optional extra.
Delighted with the results, Chloe captioned the clip: “How genius is this #nailhack? It works for short nails like mine & is SO easy compared to freehand or using tape!”

Unsurprisingly, the video has racked up over 38,000 “likes” and fans were blown away by easy the top tip was… no pun intended.
“OMG,” one replied. “I’m going to try this!”
Another added: “Oh wow, never seen this hack before!”
A third gushed: “Wait a min – this is actually LIFE-CHANGING!!”
