How To Do Manicure Steps:

Manicure at home will begin with removal of older nail polish and filing of nails. Take a hard critical look at your fingers. If they are long, you can have long nails. For short fingers, filing your nails to an oval shape is recommended. Filing must be done in a motion parallel to lay of the nail. Filing it across will damage nails.

After you are satisfied with shape of your nails, work to make your hands soft and supple. Soaking hands in soapy water for about two minutes will do it for you. Remove excess soap with cotton dabbed in nail polish remover. Press back cuticles with towel. Cuticles are delicate so don’t be harsh on them.

Now starts beautification of nails by applying polish. Direct application of polish should be avoided. Use a base coat first, which is a transparent nail polish meant to stop chemical effects of nail polish from reaching nail surface.

Once base coat has dried, apply nail polish of your chosen color. It is prudent to use two light coats applying second coat only after first has dried sufficiently.

After nail polish has dried, pamper your hands with moisturising creams. If you do not have such creams, use coconut oil or olive oil for moisturizing.

You do not have to wait for special occasions for a manicure. If you can do it once a week, you will have hands that every one will want to hold and kiss. Natural products provide for best care rather than chemical based expensive creams. If you have access to natural products like milk cream, coconut oil, olive oil and such, you do not have to look out for pocket piercing commercial products.
