Talking faux nails here. I thought I would share a little tip on how to fix the ugly grown out nail problem if you can't possible make it in for a fill and you desperately need one.
I desperately need one at the moment and cannot make in to get my nails done till next week. However, while playing around with some different polishes I found a technique to hide my ugly grown out nails for another week until I can get my pretty pink and whites done.
I tried to fix the color on this first pic and only made it worse so my apologies on the color. However here is a picture of my grown out nails after I filed them down.
I painted them a neutral color. This is important because it hides the grown out portion better then bright colors and nude colors show the tips. Then add a glob of glitter polish on the cuticle line. Wipe the brush off on the side of the bottle so that it is pretty dry and drag some of the glitter upward toward the nail tip. This will provide glitter graduating from the nail bed to the nail tip. This is a cool effect and hides the grown out part of your nail. Cover with a top coat and you are good to go for the week.
There you go. Enjoy!
