Enjoy Manicure at home

Everyone want beautiful manicure that just look and feels elegant, but the cost of salon manicures are really high. If you want to save time and money on manicures just follow our essential steps for a DIY manicure at home.

Essential tools 

Essential tools that are required before starting manicure are as follows:
  • Nail polish remover and cotton pads
  • Nail clippers
  • Nail buffer 
  • Cuticle pusher
  • Hand/nail moisturizer
  • Base coat 
  • Nail polish 
  • clear top coat 

Step#1 Remove any previously applied nail polish

Now the question is to remove nail polish with acetone or non acetone nail polish remover. When you are at a drugstore and wondering which type of nail polish remover to buy, keep this in mind that non acetone removers are best for nails because they are gentler to nails as compared to acetone ones. But the acetone based remover will work faster and remove nail polish quickly as compared to non acetone removers.

Step#2 Shape nails

The second step while doing manicure at home is to shape nails. Clip your nails, if necessary then gently file them into shape. A slightly round shape and a square rounded edge is generally the best way to file your nails but one can be creative as they want. Do not use metal files to minimize any damage to nails. Smooth the top of the nails with nail buffer to smooth the surface of the nail, but don’t forget, if you buff nails too smooth, the polish don’t stay well and slip right off.

Step#3 Soak in Luke warm water

The relaxing part Ahh… place your hands in a bowl of luke warm water and add a bit of shampoo or liquid soap to the water. Soaking the cuticle before trimming is crucial, but over soaking actually damages skins and nails, so limit this step to three minutes or less.

Step#4 Apply Cuticle Remover

When you cut the thickened skin around the nail, applying a bit of cuticle remover will be a big help. One of my favorite cuticle removers is Be Natural Cuticle Eliminator. It is the powerful cuticle remover, so don’t sit on the cuticle area for more than a few seconds.

Step#5 Moisturize

After removing cuticles by using cuticle remover massage a rich moisturize cream or silky oil into the cuticles and all over the hands to hydrate and replenish skin. By moisturizing you will get smooth hands.

Weird History of Nail Polish

We all heard about word nail polish but do we know about its history, if no then here I come with a history of nail polish. Nail polish is also known as nail varnish. This can be applied to the human fingernails and toenails to decorate and protect nail plates. Nail polish originated in China and dates back to 3000 BC. Around 600 BC, during the Zhou dynasty era, the royal house preferred the colors of nail polish silver and gold. Later on red and black get replaced by these colors and become royal favorites. During the Ming dynasty, nail polish was often made from a mixture that included beeswax, egg whites, gelatin, vegetable dyes and gum Arabic. In Egypt the lower classes wore pale nail colors, whereas high society painted their nails a reddish brown with henna. In 19th century, nails were painted with scented red oils, and polished and buffed. In 19th and early 20th century people preferred polished look rather than painted one.Inspired by car paint, a completely colorless nail col…
