A fresh, beautifully done manicure helps you look clean and put together. But professional manicures can be expensive and time consuming. Why go to the salon when you can give yourself a perfect manicure at home7 Tips For Manicures At Home

File Your Nails
ake sure they are completely dry (filing wet nails can cause splitting). Rounded nails (mirroring the shape of your cuticle) that extend just over the edge of the fingertip always look elegant.

Soak Your Nails
lace your hands in a bowl of warm (not too hot) water and add a bit of your gentle face cleanser to the water for five minutes. Avoid putting detergent or soapy cleansers in the water because they can be drying and make your cuticles look worse.

Push Back Your Cuticles
ush back your cuticles with a wet nail stone. If you have a hangnail, trim it; otherwise, don't clip cuticles (they protect nails from infection).

Apply a Basecoat
over the nail with a clear base coat or nail hardener. This will even out and ridges and unevenness that may still be on the nail, serve as a primer for the polish, help the polish to last longer, and keep the color from staining your nails.

Brush On Two Coats Of Color
rush on two thin coats of color, waiting a couple of minutes after each hand. Use three strokes on each nail on either side of the nail, then a swipe of color across the tip to prevent chips.

Apply a Top Coat
inish with a clear top coat for a hard, smooth, scratch absorbing, chip and flake resistant shield particularly important for designs that don't cover the entire nail, as well as adding shine. Let it dry completely Have fun and enjoy your newly beautiful nails.

Clean Up Any Smudges
lean up any color outside the edges of your nails with an orange stick wrapped in a thin layer of cotton and dipped in polish remover.
