Time saving - manicure on the run

I love a good mani as much as the next self respecting woman but babies and shiny nails don't always mix. I don't get much time to sit around and paint my nails anymore, I save that treat for when the baby is asleep.

I like to keep my routine simple and efficient.

Here are my to tips for keeping nails looking lovely

  • Preparation is key, keep nails filed into a round or square shape. Avoiding having ragged edges that catch on everything and tear and break your nails. Remember file in one direction. 
  • Invest in a top coat and base coat!! I love Revitanail for a treatment and base coat and OPI Topcoat.. 
  • Quick dry oil!! These products are wonderful, they moisturize cuticles, and keep polish smudge free. Bumps literally slide off your oily nails. I love Essence express dry drops this product is fantastic and cheap and cheery too. 
  • EDITED!!! my new absolute time saving and smudge proof guaranteed product is the OPI Rapidry - OPI quick drying Top coat.... This stuff is amazing, nails dry instantly and are super shiny..
My other fav time saving tip for nails is to do a Gel manicure, they take longer to do but last far longer...

What are your tips for a good mani?? x Do you pour a glass of wine and enjoy the experience and throw some polish on before running out the door....
