Anyway, you paint your nails, not worrying about any mistakes - it can be as scrappy as you like - and then wash up or take a bath. The water will wash anyway any nail polish that is on your skin leaving you with neat nails.
Or so they say.
I decided to give it a try with my new Matte polish in from Avon.
Obviously I chose to go with the 'take a bath' route. I had a good soak and then gave my nails a light going over with a nail brush. Please excuse the dreadful photos but I found the result actually rather good - certainly on a par with what I would normally achieve.
Good eh? Have I been missing this trick? Is this one of those tips that just didn't get through to me and everyone else has been doing for years?
The polish itself is lovely, the colour is bright and rather than being completely matte it has what I can only describe as a soft sheen (the black version is very matte - think blackboard and you're there). It dries in no time at all and with two coats, lasted the week. It's a really good buy and they have five shades to choose from. Red velvet is next on my list...
Have you ever tried this application technique before?
Do let me know how you got on...
