Use lemon for whitening your nails
Frequent use of dark colored nail polish can leave a yellowish tint on your nails. Always use a clear base coat before using colored nail polish to protect nails from discoloration. To get them looking clean and white again, soak a cotton wool pad in lemon juice, wrap it around your nail, and then cover it with foil.
Note down the expiry date of your beauty products on the label
Beauty products usually all have a symbol at the back of the label to show how long they will last. The round symbol shown above says the number of months the beauty product can be used after the package is opened. For example, the product above will last for 6 months after it is opened. It’s a good idea to immediately write the expiry date on your product with a permanent marker as soon as you open it.

Anyone who has long, pretty nails will know how frustrating it is when one of your nails breaks. An ordinary tea bag can be used to fix a broken nail. Remove the tea leaves from the bag, and cut off a piece of the bag to fit your nail. Stick it on the spot where your nail has broken, and trim off any excess that hangs beyond the length of your nail.
How to clean hair straighteners and curlers

When the glue has dried, use warm water and shampoo, and rub your brushes against the rough surface of the plate. Continue until the water runs clear. Finally, give them a quick rinse off in clean water.
