i want to know the best way to have your nails done at home ...gimme all you got...it's worth a try! =)
Start by removing old polish. For natural nails, use a non-acetone remover.
Now time to file. Fashion now is a short nail, straight across the top
with rounded edges. File your nails in one direction starting at the
edges and moving toward the top. Be careful not to drag the file back
and forth as it weakens the nail.
Clean your nails thoroughly by soaking in warm, soapy water. This cleans any file residue and removes any nail polish remover.
Buff with a grained buffer. This will create a natural shine, diminish
ridges and create an even base for the polish. Dot a cuticle cream on
the cuticles and thoroughly rub in.
Use an orange stick (small wooden sticks sold in pharmacies) wrapped in
cotton wool to push back cuticles. Never cut the cuticles.
Massage hands with a hand lotion for extra moisture. (Vaseline is a good night moisturiser).
Wipe nails with a damp cloth to remove excess oil from the creams.
Apply a base coat. This step is vital in preventing the nail from
staining and many base coats have additional nail strengtheners.
Apply the first coat of your desired colour. Always apply polish by
starting on the side of the nail. You should be able to cover the nail
in three strokes, one on each side and one in the middle. This coat must
be completely dry before applying the second coat.
Apply a top coat. Remember: If you use a fast-dry top coat, your polish will not last as long.
After care for your nails results in the polish lasting longer and the
nails becoming stronger. Sweet Almond Oil rubbed into the nail bed and
cuticles nourishes and protects the nails. Also, keep your hands
protected and moisturised. Surce http://ideasforbeautypic.com/
