How to Get Salon-Worthy Nails at Home

With the weather changing and the holidays right around the corner, it can be a chore to get to the nail salon on a regular basis. But, that doesn’t mean you have to forgo a salon-worthy manicure all together.  Follow these steps for a beautiful manicure that’ll last for over a week!

Step One: Remove any leftover nail polish from your nails with nail polish remover and a cotton ball or paper towel. Once you’ve removed any existing nail polish, clip your nails to make it easier to shape them with a nail file.

Step Two: Shape your nails with a nail file. Use a side to side motion when filing to avoid harm and breakage. Holding the nail file at a slight angle to avoid grating the skin beneath the nail.

Step Three: Apply cuticle oil to soften your cuticle bed before using a cuticle pusher to push your newly softened cuticle back. Avoid cutting your cuticles, as they prevent bacteria from entering your nails.

Step Four: Apply one coat of basecoat to prepare the nail for an even and layered nail polish application.

Step Five: Pick your nail polish and apply it to the top of your base coat. Apply two coats of polish, letting each coat dry before adding the next one.

Step Six: Apply one coat of a clear topcoat to get the perfect amount of shine.
