There is a secret tool that anyone who does their own manicures and pedicures at home should own. It’s not a base coat, or a fancy top coat. It’s not a color or a special file or buffer.
It’s an angled brush.
This is the best way to clean up around the cuticles and get that straight-out-of-a-magazine perfect line. In fact, that’s where we picked this trick up from – on set with some of the worlds top manicurists who shoot for the Vogue’s and Harper’s Bazaars of the world.
It’s as simple as taking your angled brush, dipping it in a small cap of nail polish remover, shaking off the excess, and gently running it around the edge of the nail. Make sure your angled brush is pretty hard – you don’t want a soft brush that will splay and ruin your straight line. Simple! A cheap tool in your arsenal for a million dollar result.
