Not being able to make an appointment until further notice means it’s only a matter of time before your gel nails go from ‘fine’ to ‘overgrown by a full centimetre’.

We found a simple hack which will at least stop you from ruining them as they grow out.

All you need is glitter nail polish – the chunkier glitter, the better – and topcoat.

So, take your chunky glitter polish and simply fill in the ‘gap’ between the gel nail and the cuticle.

In the vid, Olivia Smalley from OMG Artistry says that that you could just finish up there, but because we have some time on our hands, you could try to do a bit of ‘ombre-ing’.

“To give it that ‘fade away’ look.”
