Your Guide To A Great At-Home Manicure

Step #1. Start by getting your nails trimmed and shaped. Use nail clippers, a nail file, and a buffer to perfect the look of your nails.

Step #2. Tend to your cuticles by softening them with an oil or lotion. Once they are soft, use a cuticle stick to push them back. You can then use a cuticle trimmer to get a clean, tidy look. Your cuticles are meant to protect your nails, so don’t over trim them or cut them down too much.

Step #3. Use an exfoliating hand scrub on your hands, wrists, and arms. This will get rid of dead skin and add moisture. This won’t be quite as nice as when someone else massages your hands, but the microbeads will still feel great on your hands and arms. Once you’re done exfoliating, thoroughly wash and dry your hands.

Step #4. Now that your dead skin cells have been removed, apply a lotion to your hands to ensure they are properly moisturized. Once you’re done with this second hand massage, make sure you wipe away the lotion from your nails with nail polish remover.

Step #5. It’s time to apply your base coat. The base coat will hydrate your nails as well as prevent them from chipping. The ideal amount of time to wait between applying your coats of nail polish is two minutes. Once you’re done applying the base coat, give yourself two minutes before starting the next step.

Step #6. Now you can start getting creative! Apply the nail color of your choice, and be sure you take your strokes all the way down to the cuticle and get along the sides of your nails.

Step #7. Again, wait two minutes in between coats. Apply a second coat of your nail polish. If you are using a lighter color, you may need to apply three coats to get the color you desire.

Step #8. Ensure that the nail polish will last with a topcoat. The topcoat keeps your nails from chipping and it adds a nice shine!

Step #9. Continue with your creative process by adding jewels and rhinestones for beautiful 3D nail art designs.

Step #10. Complete your at-home manicure by cleaning up any smudges or mistakes you made. Use a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover as an easy way to fix any blemishes. Let your nails dry, and you’re set!
