A newfangled , appealingly accomplished manicure defines your nails by making them look elegant and perfectly placed. But professional treatments often hit hard on your budgets and are  time-consuming . Why visit a beauty salon when you can exquisitely pamper your nails at home ? Many women are of the faith that opulent manicure at home is confined to ; getting rid of  their  old nail polish ; nail filing and applying a chic paint. 


Supplies Required For Salon-Kind  Manicure 

For  getting a professional -style manicure ,you would want to invest in few supplies . Shop for a mild hand soap , a manicure kit comprising of  ; buffing gizmo , nail file , cuticle tool , nail cleansing tool ,cotton balls and nail trimmers .Don't forget to grab on to a base coat ,cuticle cream , moisturizing cream , trendy nail polish and a transparent top coat . Lay out your supplies on  your work table .


Get Great Nails At Home

Remove Your Old Nail Polish – Start your regime by dabbing your cotton pad  in  nail polish remover and lift off your old nail color. While doing so , ensure you don't leave out the nail edges . When shopping for a nail polish remover you can pick an acetone or a non-acetone remover. Quite economical , acetone removes nail polish quickly but results in drying out your mails and the skin surrounding it . Non-acetone remover is mild but consumes more effort to remove your old paint .


Offer Your Nails A Desired Shape - Nails poses an intrinsic grain ,thus  must be filed only in one direction . The technique prevents the nails from peeling or chipping off . Dare to wear  a smooth, rounded tip ; square nail, pointy stiletto;or  an oval nail. 

Clean Up Your Nail -Painting dirty nails are no good and get noticed quickly . Clean out the dirt accumulated underneath the nails and wash away the excess residues formed by the polish remover. Mild soaps soften the cuticles ; making it more manageable ,while filing .

Apply Cuticle Cream – Putting on some cuticle cream keeps your nail tissues supple and prevents bacteria .  Olive oil is the best known substitute ; if cuticle cream is not available .

Pushing Cuticles To The Base – Pushing the cuticles to the base is an essential step of  at-home manicure . To avoid cuts and infections from setting in , make sure your cuticles are not chipped off. This process should be followed by applying a moisturizing lotion or cream and wiping away excess oil.

Paint  To Flaunt – Nail buffing adds up an extra sheen similar to that of a single stroke of  polish. Buffer conceals all nail glitches like dullness or ridges . Put a thin layer of your base coat and ensure it fully dries out before wearing your nail color  and you are sure to enjoy the results of your salon-type manicure at home .Each shade of your nail paint starts unfurling its true hue at this speck. 

Nail coat should dry completely before further applications followed by a  transparent top coat that  completes the process  and prevents your nail color from chipping

For those finding the process tiring can choose of enhance the ambiance by tuning into their favorite music numbers or watching  television while doing their manicure.
