Exactly How to Get
Manicure At Home.
With just a few tools, expert tips, and a little patience, you can achieve a salon-quality manicure at home. Here's how:.
1. Prep your nails: Start with a polish remover, then shape your nails. 90% of your shape comes from the clipper; 10% from filing.
Apply cuticle remover which is
an exfoliating treatment to loosen
dead skin around the nails.
Finally, swipe the entire nail with 91%
isopropyl alcohol to remove excess oils.
2. Pick your polish.
3. Perfect your technique: Don't skip on base
coat, get comfortable, paint your dominant
hand first, and limit the number of swipes.
4. Fix streaky polish: To keep
the pigments from separating,
shake the bottle more frequently.
5. Make your manicure at
home last: Reapply a thin layer of
topcoat every two to three days
