Sure, it’s relaxing and it feels nice to be pampered at the nail salon. But sometimes getting a professional manicure could cost you a lot. Even if you’re not looking to save a little stash of cash, every girl should master the art of the at-home manicure. Plus, it will be handy when you have no time to head to the salon.
Start with clean, dry, paint-free nails. Your first step is to file and shape your tips. Pick your shape: square, round, oval, or pointed. Oval is the universally flattering shape. Although the normal nail file is alright, using a glass nail file is recommended. Always file nails in one direction using short, smooth strokes. It will help keep split nails away.
Soak your hands in a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes to soften up your cuticles and then gently push them back with a cuticle pusher or orangewood stick. Try not to cut your cuticles. It will lead to ragged edges or worse – a bad infection.
Put on your base coat. Even if you skip the top coat, it’s best if you don’t ditch your base. It gives polish something to grab onto. Some base coats can also nourish your nails while helping prevent chips and peeling polish.

Pick a nail polish of your favourite colour. Using short strokes, start in the middle of the nail and work outward. To keep it uniform, try to get the same amount of polish on the brush for each finger. For better results, put on a second coat.
