Do It Yourself Manicure

Sometimes we do not have the time to do professional manicure but still have to get our hands done beautifully in the shortest time. What should we do about it? The answer is to DO IT YOURSELF.


1) Remove the oil or any nails polish.

2) Clip your nails. DO NOT cut it too short or near the skin.

3) File your nails straight across for a few times. File the edge of the nails slightly rounded depending on the shape you wish.

4) Soak your finger in warm water for about 2 minutes.

5) Apply cuticle remover to all your 10 fingernails only on the edge of the fingernails.

6) Use the cuticle stick and gently push back the cuticles from the nails and trim off with the cuticle snippers.

7) Wash your hand

8) Massage and Apply Hand Cream. Apply the cuticle oil to the cuticle and massage.

9) Apply a Transparent Base coat.

10) Apply the colour to your nails.

11) Wait for your nails to dry.

12) Apply Top Coat to protect the colours.
