At Home Manicure

25 May

Here are some basic tips for performing an at home manicure. Wash hands with mild soap. Use a nailbrush to scrub underneath the nails to get a thorough clean. Soak your hands in a mixture of mild soap and warm water for a few minutes to soften the cuticles. Gently push back the cuticles and only clip them if they are still apparent after you have pushed them back. Trim down your nails to a desired length. Use a nail buffing block to file and smooth the surface and the edge of the nails. Apply some moisturizing hand cream to your hands. Lastly paint your nails in your favorite polish shade. If  your nails are weaker I suggest that you buff and file your nails first and then soak your nails. This will help prevent nails from getting weaker or cracking after the soak, since nails tent to be more pron to damage after being in water. But remember to always apply a base coat. Enjoy!
