Steps to do Manicure at Home
- The first thing to begin with is cleaning your nails. Use the nail remover to wipe off the old nail polish.
- File your nails into the perfect shape. Always make sure to file your nails in the straight direction. Do this slowly taking extra care if you have thin nails.
- Once done with filing your nails, get a small bucket or basin filled with warm water. Add liquid soap to it and soak your fingers. After some time apply cuticle oil into your cuticles. Wait for some time and let it do the work.
- Next step is to use the cuticle pusher and fix your cuticles. While it pushes back the cuticles, it is not recommended to cut them.
- Use nail polish remover and wipe off the oil. Now your nail surface is clean and ready for applying the base coat.
- After applying a base coat, let it dry and follow it with two thin coats of your favourite nail polish.
- Fix the smudges and yes, you are ready.
