How To Remove Dirt Under Nails

How-To: An Easy Way to Remove Gunk From Under the Nails

Recently, I purchased a pair of bluish-black jeans that fit so well, I think I should just buy every color. The only downfall? I didn't follow the manufacturer's suggestion to wash before wearing, and somehow, the dye from my pants ended up all over my hands and under my fingernails. Yuck. I don't know about you, but I don't like the look of what appears to be dirt under my fingernails.

One of my friends in the beauty business suggested I purchase some cotton swabs with at least one pointed tip at either end. She told me to dunk that oval-shaped tip into a body oil; I used Casaro Applicator and Manicure Sticks ($2.29). Now, I know that this is a no-duh idea, but the perk of using oil is that it conditions the nails. I used the other end of the swab dipped in the same oil to lightly massage and hydrate the cuticle and skin around the nail bed. No more dingy digits for me.
