Give Yourself A Manicure
Show off your hands! Step-by-step instructions for a complete at home manicure. Your hands will thank you.
1. Remove your old nail polish with non-acetone remover, using cotton balls. File your nails from corner to corner being sure to go staright across not back and forth to prevent nails fron peeling or slitting. File the sides at a 45 degree angle. Look for soft files and avoid emery boards.
2. Soak your nails in warm soapy water for a few minutes. Now dry your hands and put cuticle remover on cuticle's and let soak. Your cuticle should dissolve.
3. Push cuticle back very gently with an orange wood stick wrapped in thin cotton. If you have a hang nail (loose skin around your nail), trim it with nippers.
4. Apply hand lotion, and massage around the nail and cuticle area. Doing this prevents to cuticle from becoming dried out and helps promote nail growth.
5. Remove any oil from your nails by putting them back in the soapy water and brushing with a nail brush. Or you can use your facial astringent applied with cotton balls to remove oil.
6. Polish: apply a base coat or nail strengthener to keep the polish from staining your nails and to make color stay on better. Now apply 2 coats of color polish. Use just three or four strokes. Let dry for a few moments in between coats. Now apply a topcoat. This will prevent the polish from chipping and give your nails a glossy finish.
