Perfect Way to Give a Manicure


The average girl doesn't have the time or money to go to a posh salon to have her nails professionally manicured. Read here to find out how to give yourself an expert manicure or pedicure in minutes. It's a fact of life I try to remember at all times because if I'm not careful I'll end up with fingernails at 5 different lengths and a hangnail or two. Here, I share 5 of my most favorite manicure tips. 

  • Prepare your nails: Remove previous polish by rubbing a Q-tip or cotton ball dipped in low-acetone remover on your nails. Dip your hands/feet one at a time in warm, soapy water, dry thoroughly with a soft towel. Then, put some sugar or salt in a dish and pour on some olive oil. Massage the scrub into your hands/feet, rinse than dry. If you want, you can rub extra oil (without sugar) into cuticles.
  • Apply a base coat: You don't have to, but it is recommended as it helps the staying power of the manicure. Use a cuticle remover to push back your cuticles. 
  • Apply polish: Do the first coat, and when it dries, then the second coat.The best method for painting nails is painting a stripe down the middle and then down each side. Dip a Q-tip in remover and rub any stray polish that ends up on your fingers.
  • Apply top-coat: Make sure the polish is completely dry before you do so. If you want to add a sheer color or sparkle polish over the base polish, do so under the top-coat. 
  • Allow your nails to dry: For an extra spa feeling to your home pedicure, nuke a damp towel in the microwave for a couple minutes, slather feet in moisturizer and wrap them in the warm towel.
