Manicure & Pedicure at Home

So, Diwali's first bath or the Narak Chaturdashi is almost here. Getting fabulous for the BIG day? I hope you're not forgetting your hands and feet!




STEPS for Manicure/Pedicure at home //

  1. Remove your old nail polish with a nail polish remover using cotton balls (and not tissues!).
  2. File your nails and shape them; or cut your nails (if you're a short-nail lover like me). 
  3. Soak your hands in lukewarm water preferably putting a mild liquid soap inside for few minutes. 
  4. Apply moisturizer to your hands/feet, concentrating more on your cuticles (avoiding nails).
  5. Apply base coat (you can skip this step).
  6. Let the coat dry. Apply your chosen nail polish colour. 
  7. Let the coat dry. Now finally, apply a top coat (you can skip this step). 
  8. Let the top coat dry. Apply a bit moisturizer to give the hands/feet and the nails a finished-up look. 

Oh, you can thank me later!

    Do the beauticians in salon follow similar set of steps? Have you ever tried Mani/Pedi at home?
