What a better place to have a manicure than in our home. Don’t know how to do it? Here we will be explaining how to do it yourself at home.

You will need:

  • Nail Polish Remover
  • Warm Water
  • Nail Filer
  • Moisturize Soap
  • Towel
  • Nailbrush
  • Base coat
  • Olive Oil or Lemon Juice
  • Lotion
  • Nail Polish

First you need to dip the cotton ball in the mail polish remover. Rub it for 8 seconds whether you have nail polish or not because it will remove any substance in the nail.

Second, soak your hands in warm water for 10 minutes and use a moisturizing soap. If your hands are rough, use mild facial cleanser. When finished, pat your hands with a soft and dry towel.

Cut you nails, file your nails form external corners to the tips. Soak your nails again for 10 minutes. You can use nailbrush for the cleaning of your nails. Massage your hands and cuticles. It is preferable that you massage them in a circular motion because it would increase the circulation of the blood. Clip off any nail hanging with the nail scissors.

Apply the base coat, and then apply your nail polish. For the final touch apply the top coat.
