Natural Manicure Skip the polish and strengthen your nails with an at-home treatment that also relieves stress. With ingredients like fresh milk and warm almond, olive, or avocado oil instead of the fume-laden chemicals most nail salons rely on, you can get shiny summer nails minus the smudges and chips in less than 20 minutes. I do this when I am busy, just DON'T OVER BUFF
To make your own matte nail polish, make a little pile of eyeshadow (great idea for the broken shadows we all have lying around!) and mix in a little clear nail polish. No more paying $8 a bottle for the matte stuff!
