1. Longer-lasting perfume hack

2. Quick-drying nail varnish hack

OPI's fall 2021 swatches come in a wide variety of hues: moody blues, soft lilacs, creamy neutrals. As much as we can't wait to achieve ultimate nail bliss, the drying part of a manicure is tedious and time-consuming. If you dip your nails into a cup of ice cold water for roughly 10 seconds, your mani will dry. Crazy, right?!

3. Neater eyebrows hack

If you can't make it to the salon for a threading or waxing appointment, you can show your brows some DIY love by placing tape above and below your eyebrow line and cutting or trimming the extras off. Though it works, this hack is one to use with caution!

4. Eyelash curler hack

Turns out your eyelash curler is actually a great primer for the ultimate brow look. You can use it as a way to perfectly apply eyeshadow to your crease or eyeliner to the root of your lash to achieve that 60s eyeliner trend. Who knew?!

Switch up your shampoo routine to enjoy the ultimate silky-smooth 'do. Shampoo and rinse your hair, then wrap it in a warm, damp cotton shirt after applying the conditioner. Keep it wrapped for 30 minutes before removing and rinsing with cold water. Voila! Shine for days!
