As I said, I personally have a minor obsession with nail colors, still don’t believe me? Check out #TipsyTuesday  or #Beauty.

Okay, I think I’m making point clear. I even shared an Easy at Home Manicure and a DIY Nail Strengthener.

Recently, I stumbled upon an article that totally supports my addiction. The article is available on Cosmopolitan.com and was retweeted by Huffington Post, check out the full article, click here.

Here’s a quick recap of “21 Things You Absolutely Must Know About Painting Your Nails.”

  1. Three strokes are all you need.
  2. Always use base coat.

  6. Swipe on cuticle oil religiously.
  7. Hold your hands under cold water post-paint job.
