Steps for a Manicure at Home:
1. Nail Shaping/Buffing
This is the initial step to begin the manicure. Just in case you had an old nail paint on, just remove it and start shaping the nails, with any of your choices. These days a square shape is so much in, or you like the rounded nail bed, up to you, completely. Make sure the shape or the buffer you use is suitable, soft and smooth.
2. The Extravagant Soak
This is a soak that is unstoppable; you can feel the excitement to a large with it. You must add a cleanser or a body-wash or even your shampoo to soak your hands. This certainly makes the nails softer and also cleanses them from within. Just put a few rose petals for a soft feel and fragrant experience.
3. Cleaning, Trimming, Cuticle Cutting
Now that the nails along with the nail bed are all soft, you can cut and trim them to the desired shape. Remove the lingering cuticles if any and clean the layer underneath for a proper and a poised finish.
4. Moisture Therapy
Now is the time to dab on your favorite moisturizer to lock in the skin’s moisture and nourish the skin of your hands from deep within. You can massage your hands, fingers, nail beds, wrist and arms to ensure the hands look perfectly polished, clean and smooth. This moisturizing step also is the massage section of your manicure. Ensure you rub the area well for a better blood flow; that would indeed make the skin appear better.
5. Add the Glam of Your Favorite Color
Now that you have clean and polished hands, it’s time to embellish with a pop of your much-loved nail paint. It entirely depends on upon your mood, at the time, we desire light pastel hues or rather just a dash of a nude shine. On the other days, we love the deep reds, pinks, and gold. So go on and let your creativity begin right here and pick the one you feel like.
Conclusion: At last, stay happy and make your hands look simply gorgeous!
