You will certainly use a nail polish remover, so it is pretty important to finish the job clean. Since the liquid can damage your surface, make sure to cover it up with scrap paper, better not a newspaper because it can smudge, and wear an expandable t-shirt. Choose a place such as a desk or a table, again don’t sit and work near your computer, just for an instance since it will be troublesome if you face a nail polish splatter, also wear no valuable accessories.
Now take all the necessary things to clean up and and become a beautician!
1. Remove the old Nail Polish:
Well, it’s not a surprise since, you know, all you need to clean your nail is a cotton ball. Shred the cotton puff, take the smaller pieces, soak them in the nail polish remover and place them on each of your nails. A few moments later, swipe it away. If you wear nail polish of light colours, you can see your nails cleaned or wise if you are wearing dark colours such as plum, you may see a slight yellowish in your nails after removing the nail polish. To clean the nails completely, dip them in the mixture of warm water and soap. It will help to loosen the dirt as well as the dead skin. And there! You got your nails cleaned!!
The other important thing you need to get a good manicure is, cut your nails once you finish cleaning them. Please don’t cut it too short, and then you won’t be able to file it. A fine filing is necessary to get your nails in good shape.
2. Use Vaseline:
Yes! Everyone can agree that it is always hard to hold captive your nails. It is not at all easy as it seems to be. We always paint over our cuticles; nowadays, everyone would like to explore rather than be encircled. But in this case, we have to follow the rules to get it done. You have to apply vaseline around your nail to avoid all this mess, only in the edges. So, any nail polish that crosses the border will rest its case to the balm, and it will save your skin!
3. Base coat:
This base coat will help your work in two good ways. The first thing is, it will prevent discolouration and nail stains. Second of all, the nail polish will go smoother on your nails. You can also use a nail hardener. And some of the products will help to moisturize and strengthen your nails. Moreover, the base coat will help the polish to last longer.
4. Use cuticle Oil:
If you plan to do manicures regularly at home, make sure you are not cutting your cuticles since that can lead to even more sensitive skin around them. Instead, push back your cuticles and apply oil rich in Vitamin E to hydrate and strengthen your nails and the skin around them.
5. Use a Top Coat:
You can be satisfied with the finishing you get once you apply it after you apply nail polish and let it dry. It is worth spending some money on it even though it may sound silly. It adds extra shine to your nails and prevents your nail polish from chipping since it can seal your nail polish. Viola!! There you go. Now you have completed the art of doing manicures. Save money doing this at home and stay beautiful forever and ever!!
