Comment réussir sa manucure à la maison - Valorise Toi

How to achieve a successful manicure at home

To achieve a successful at-home manicure, follow these steps to achieve neat, professional nails:

1. Prepare your tools 

Gather all the necessary materials, including a nail file, cuticle nippers, cuticle sticks, buffing block, nail polish remover, cotton, base coat, nail polish of your choice, and topcoat.

2. Clean your nails

• Remove any previous nail polish with a mild nail polish remover.

• Wash your hands and nails to remove oil and impurities.

3. Cuticle care 

• Use cuticle sticks or a cuticle pusher to gently push back cuticles after softening them in warm water or using a cuticle emollient. Trim excess cuticles as needed. 

4. cut and/or file your nails

If your nails are too long, cut them and then file them to obtain the desired shape. Always file in one direction to avoid splitting nails.

5. Polish your nails :

• Use a buffing block to smooth the nail surface, eliminating ridges and irregularities.

6. Apply the base :

• Apply a thin protective base coat to protect your nails and prolong the wear of the polish.

7. Apply the varnish:

• Apply two thin coats of nail polish starting in the middle of the nail, then working out to the sides. Wait for each coat to dry before applying the next one. Don't forget to seal the tip of the nail well.

8. Apply the top coat:

• Apply a transparent top coat to seal the polish, add shine and extend wear.

9. Clean up the burrs:

• Use a cotton swab dipped in nail polish remover to clean the burrs around the nails.

10. Let dry:

• Let your nails dry completely before touching anything to avoid damaging the polish.

11. Hydrate:

• Apply moisturizer to hands and cuticles to maintain hydration.

12. Enjoy your manicure:

• Admire your freshly manicured nails and enjoy the result!

With a little practice, you can achieve professional results at home. Remember to take your time and follow each step carefully for flawless nails.
