Easy at Home Manicure

Easy at Home Manicure

Let’s face it. Going to a salon and getting a manicure can be expensive! You can give yourself the perfect at home manicure and save money!

Start by getting everything you need together and set up a work area that you will be comfortable at. After all manicures are supposed to relax you.

What you need:

Nail cutter

Nail File

Cuticle trimmer

Bowl with water

Hand towel

Cuticle remover

Cuticle stick

Hand Lotion

Clear Nail Polish

 

1.) Start by trimming your nails to the length that you would like. Remember not to trim them too short.

2.) Using a nail file smooth the edges of each nail. If you would like to shape your nails take your time and file the tip to your preferred shape.

3.) Place your fingertips in a medium-sized bowl with warm water to remove the nail residue left over from the filing and to soften the cuticles. Leave your fingertips in the bowl for about five minutes. Dry your hands with a towel.

4.) Place a drop of cuticle remover on the base of the nail to loosen the cuticle. Massage the nail base with the cuticle remover.

5.)  Use the round tip of the Cuticle stick and push back the cuticle of each nail until the dead skin loosens up from the base. Use the cuticle trimmer and carefully trim away the loose cuticle. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN DOING THIS! You don’t want to cause damage to your cuticles or nails.

6.) Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water to remove any leftover cuticle residue. Dry your hands and apply your favorite lotion to moisturize and massage your hands. We use Neutrogena  Norwegian Formula® Hand Cream to protect and heal our hands from the brutal cold New York weather.

7.) Finish with your favorite clear nail polish.
