If you thought you need to spend hours in a salon to win â€œhandsâ€ down, think againâ€¦
We bring you simple tips to follow this summer, so you can save both time and money, and your hands will look like they have undergone a professional manicure! You may think your hands need pampering only during winters, but you couldnâ€™t be further from the truth! Summer heat robs your hands of moisture, making them look weathered and dry. A good manicure will not only soften your hands and add polish to your nails, but also do wonders for your overall grooming!
Gorgeous nails make a lasting impression, so go ahead and collect your home manicure DIY kit first: you will need nail polish remover, cotton, hand lotion, nail file, base coat / nail polish. Remove the chipped nail polish first. This should take you barely a minute. Cut your nails with a nail cutter if necessary and then file them to a square or rounded shape, depending on your preference. Rub generously with hand lotion to soften your hands, and wipe clean with a wet towel.
Apply a base coat first on your nails. This helps the nail polish to stay on longer and also protects the nails. Once the base coat is dry, apply nail polish and allow it to dry. Voila! Your 5 minute manicure is complete! So, now that you know how to do a quality manicure on a budget, you can truly have fun and change the nail polish colour whenever you like! After all, it only takes 5 minutes to get glamorous hands, and the final effect is that of being pamperedâ€¦
You can shop for the quick-drying nail polish available across the shelf in most stores these days. When in a hurry to dry your nails, use a hair dryer on â€œlow heatâ€ setting. Doing your 5 minute manicure at home can be good fun.
