The Best Beauty Timesavers
Whether you're stuck with wet nails, need to clean up an eye shadow "oops" or mess up your spray tan, there are lots of ways to fix the beauty boo-boo quickly and get on your way. When it comes to your fingertips, sitting around waiting for your polish to dry can put your schedule on ice. So put your nails on ice to hasten the drying process. Fill a large bowl with ice water and carefully dunk hands after allowing nails to air dry for two minutes. Submerge hands for three minutes, then allow to air dry. To repair a split nail that hasn't broken completely off, grab some nail glue (or krazy glue in a pinch), manicure scissors and a teabag or divide a tissue into layers. Tear off a small piece of the bag or tissue - enough to cover the split - and apply a drop of nail glue to the paper. Lay over the split and allow to dry. File over to make it smooth and paint nails as usual. As you apply your makeup, mistakes can happen. But after layering concealer, foundation and powder, it's frustrating to have to start all over again if you smear eye makeup.
