Doing all your nails might sound challenging, but by following a few easy steps, it’s achievable to get professional outcomes at an affordable price.
Here’s what you need before you get started with your DIY manicure:
- Acetone-free polish remover and wipes or cotton balls
- Nail file
- Buffing block
- Orange wood stick
- Cuticle oil
- Nail polish: base, color, topcoat
Before you begin, make sure your finger and toe nails are free from old lacquers or polish by utilizing a non-acetone remover. Next, utilize clippers and/or a file to gently shape your fingernails to your preferred length as well as shape. Begin to smooth the surface area of the nails with a buffing block – this eliminates the ugly yellow discolorations we all get from putting on excessive darkish polish.
2. Dip and Scrub
Dip hands for three minutes, and feet for five minutes. Now, time to scrub! You may use a blend of one tbsp of sugar with one tbsp of baby oil gel and carefully rinse away the dry and dead cells. Wash it out and pat to dry.
3. Caring the Cuticles
Soften your cuticles by massaging some oils on them. Once your cuticle becomes soft, proceed and press them back with an orangewood stick to obtain a form. You may utilize this tool to clean up dirt from underneath the nail. Before moving on to the next step, swipe the nail beds with the non-acetone polish remover to eliminate any oil and moisturizer.
4. Apply the Base Coat
Use a base coating to smooth any side rails and produce even surface area for your shade. One thin layer will do this!
5. Polish Away
Paint on two thin coatings of polish, allowing your shade to dry out completely between each coat. Swipe polish straight down the center of the nail first, then on every side. It is essential to make the coatings of finish as thin as possible, which will help in durability and help the polish to dry more speedily.
6. Shine Shine Shine
Putting on a top layer does far more than add sparkle. It also smooths away imperfections, which is a complete life saver. One layer is all you will need. To quickly refresh your manicure or pedicure all through the full week, add an extra layer of top coating.
Now, it’s all done. So relax and do not touch your newly covered nails until they dry completely.
