Salon Manicure At Home–You already knows that a salon manicure makes your nails look fantastic. What you may not know is that a professional nail treatment actually has long-term and health benefits as well. Therefore, you should get your nails manicured from time to time. But I can understand it can be a little expensive to do every week. Sure, everyone’s manicure looks great when they’re done at the salon—but you can get such a perfect manicure at home? For this, you need some special experience. Only then you will be able to do a good salon manicure home. You need a small practice.
So here are some tips for improving your technique and get the mani of your dreams, at home:
How to Do Salon-Quality Manicure at Home Easy Way-
A base coat is your best defense against staining. It “provides a clear protective layer between the nail and the pigment of the polish above.
Base-coat protects your natural nails from yucky staining, it also helps to even out any natural ridges or dips in your nails, creating a smooth surface that’s ready for some color. Without it, I’d be lost.
Whenever you’re applying base coat apply it the same way you would polish, three strokes, and always seal the free edge. That’ll avoid the nail polish from chipping too soon. You apply a base coat to all 10 nails. By then it’ll dry because it’s thin.
Apply Perfect Nail Polish-
Nail polish application typically involves 1 coat of base coat, 2 coats of color application to ensure full coverage, and 1 coat of topcoat for long-lasting wear and shine…
- Before you begin, Make sure to properly prep nails and remove any older nail polish that might be leftover.
- Apply 1 coat of Nail Base Coat to start, and let dry.
- When it comes to color application, it’s best to apply nail polish down the center of the nail, avoid flooding your cuticle.
- Then work your way down the sides of the nail, and be sure to cap the free edge as a final step.
- Apply 2 coats of color application, allow each coat to dry in between.
Tips- When applying nail polish to very short nails, cap the free edge first by pulling down on the skin away from the edge. Then apply the remaining nail polish as usual.
How to clean nail polish from cuticle-
Let your nails dry really well – at least 15 minutes after the last coat.
Then wash your hands in warm water for a couple of minutes – rub at the excess polish while you wash! The water will keep you from smudging your nails unless you use too much force, so you can remove lots of the excess this way.
Once you’re done washing, moisturize really well. I’m using hemp hand cream from The Body Shop. I normally put on a couple of layers of this. Rub it in well – it should allow a little more of the polish to release from your skin. Plus, you should be nice to your hands after drying them out with nail polish.
Lay down a couple of paper towels, and fold one of them a couple of times to use to wipe your brush off.
Pour some nail polish remover into the bottle cap. Dip the brush into it, and squeegee off the excess on the rim of the cap. Drag it along the edges of your nails, cleaning it off on the paper towels after every swipe.
Repeat until you have perfect nails.
Make sure to rinse the brush after in warm water – otherwise the acetone will make it stiff and ruin it for the next time!
