How to Get your Nails in Shape for Summer

Let's face it...I'm a mani and pedi lovin' girl pretty much all year long, but I particularly like showing off my nails in the warm weather months. That's probably because I'm such a fan of fun, BRIGHT colors. Nothing says summertime like a get-you-noticed kinda color. I'm talking über brights. But you don't want to rock bold hues if your nails aren't in great shape. Am I right? So, let's talk about how to get your nails in shape for summer! I have a few super easy tips that should get you there in no time.
