If you have the time its great to relax and enjoy the process of doing something nice for yourself. This spa manicure takes about 30 to 35 minutes and will leave your nails and hands looking beautiful!
Follow these simple steps for the perfect at-home spa manicure:
Remove old polish using a gentle remover
Prepare a small bowl with warm water and add a little moisturizing liquid soap
Soak your hands in the prepared warm, soapy water. Let soak for a few minutes in order to soften cuticles. Use a gentle soap that won’t dry out your skin
Using an orange wood stick, push your cuticles back gently. Never cut the cuticles, as this can lead to damage and even infection
Massage hands with a creamy hand lotion. Rub in for a couple of minutes in order to fully hydrate the skin, particularly if you are suffering from dry winter skin
Wipe nails on a damp cloth in order to remove excess oil
Apply a base coat or nail strengthener before adding two coats of your favorite shade of nail polish. Always start on the side of the nail and use three strokes to fully coat each nail. Follow with a top coat, which will lock in your nail polish for longer and you are done!
