It is easy to achieve the perfect manicure without visiting a manicurist. We checked out Glamour the perfect resource for home beauty tips and style to find out the best way to give yourself a home manicure.

The secret is to prep your nails first with a good quality nail varnish remover. Then clip and buff your nails and push back the cuticles with a cuticle stick.

Then exfoliate your hands to remove any dead skin cells and moisturise, using the cuticle stick to ensure that any grime trapped under the nails is removed. The final step to nail preparation is to moisturise with hand cream and massage each hand.

Once you have carried out this process, you can apply the varnish.

First up, a base coat will protect the nails and help prevent against chipping. Then apply the first coat of color. In general you can cover each nail with three stripes of colour and then leave to dry. Apply the second coat after two minutes and remember to keep the layers thin.

Once you are satisfied with the results, apply a topcoat. This must be done once the nails are dry. The topcoat shrinks once it dries so it is important for maintaining the glossy appearance of the nails without causing unsightly ridges.

Working on your own home manicure is surprisingly restful and satisfying. Even when you are travelling it’s good to take some time out for yourself and indulge in some pampering. Even better it gives great results that will enhance your look, leaving you looking fantastic wherever you choose to be.
