- Nail clippers
- A nail file
- Cuticle nippers/ pusher
- Cuticle remover
- A tub
- Warm water to soak
- Face wash
- A scrub
- Nail polish
1. Shape Your Nails:
First soak your nails for few seconds. Then file them gently to whichever shape you like. It is recommended that you file your nails in a round shape or a rounded square at the edges.
2. Soak & Scrub:
In a tub place warm water. Add a cleanser to the water. Then soak your hands for about three minutes. You can use your face cleanser.
3. Cleaning & Trimming The Cuticles
Adding some cuticle remover before you start working. Then, using a cuticle pusher, gently push your cuticles. You need to just nip off the free edges using the nippers. Be care don’t hurt your fingers.
Now that your hands are clean, use a rich, creamy moisturizer, and massage it into your cuticles and hands. This will hydrate and replenish the skin. If you don’t have a good moisturizer at hand, you can use your favorite oil instead.
5. Glam It Up With Nail Polish
If you plan to add some color to your nails, you need to make sure there is no moisturizer left on the nails as it will not allow the nail paint to stick well. Use a cotton swab to remove the excess cream from the nail surface.
If your nails are weak or brittle, it is a good idea to apply a base coat first. You can use a transparent nail polish or a ridge filler. Apply the color of your choice on your nails. Allow it to dry for a few seconds, and then apply another coat.
So, you are ready for any occasion with no money spend. Enjoy!
