Like most women I’ve always wanted long nails that I could be proud of. Although I’m quite the active type, I still think that nicely polished nails give me the feminine touch I enjoy. Each time my nails grow long enough, one will end up breaking and ruin my whole look. I don’t think I’m alone! My friends fit into two categories those that pay for a professional to apply artificial nails or a gel manicure; and those that have tried everything and given up (the category I have been in for quite a few years now). Thanks to Julia of misschievous.tv, I have finally found a process and the products that give me the look I’ve always been after, great looking natural nails done at home!
This first video will show you how to perform your home manicure. Julia takes you through the process of properly preparing your nails; then applying a base coat, color and a top coat.
Products you will need:
- Nail polish remover (non-acetone is more gentle on your nails)
- Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover Orange Sticks (to push back your cuticles)
- Glass Nail File
- Nail Tek Foundation II Ridge Filling Nail Strengthener
- Nail Polish (color of your choice)
- Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
The second video will show you how to repair a nail with a tea bag. With this repair technique you don’t have to lose the look you’re after, even if a break does occur.
I hope these tips and techniques will bring you the perfect natural manicure you’re looking for. If you have further tips you would like to share, please leave a comment.
