5 Steps To The Perfect Manicure At Home!

Sunday, 1 March 2015

As a troubled nail-painter, I know it's hard getting the perfect tumblr-like manicure. You try and try again to the coats right but every single time you manage to get the main coat all over your hand. Don't fret any longer, as I have my top 5 steps to a perfect manicure. And the best part is, it's all free at home!
 Step 1: Prepare!
Everyone knows there is no point doing the job if you don't do it properly. Shape your nails with a file and apply your favourite moisturiser to your hands. I love smitten by lush!
 Step 2: All About That Base
Start your polish journey by applying the base. If you get a little on your cuticle or over the finger nail it doesn't matter that much as the base is transparent. That's why I love this step so much!
Step 3: COLOUR!
Although this is the hardest step, I love picking out my favourite shade. It changes every time I do it! Try and get as close to the cuticle as possible, and don't worry if you get it a little over. Just dip a -tip in nail polish and clear up excess. It's as easy as that! Also, make your first coat quite thick as then your second coat won't be as hard to apply.
Step 4: Top Coat
Whether your going for matte or normal, this step is just as easy as the second. Just make sure your colour is dry or face the consequences! I like to put my nails (this sounds weird but trust me!) in the freezer for about a minute and when I take them out my nails are completely dry.

Step 5: Enjoy!
Okay, I know this isn't really a step but I love it when I look at the final product and it's good, who doesn't? Now go and flash your fabulous manicure!
