Home manicure: Adopt the right gestures
When embarking on a home manicure, it is important to know the right things to do a professional job.
First step (and not the least!): prepare your nails well.
We file them to give them a nice shape, then push back the cuticles after massaging them with a drop of emollient to soften them. To do this, make sure you have the right tools! First use the round end of a steel cuticle pusher, the square end being used only for the corners then, if necessary, gently cut the excess skin. Finally, don’t forget to roughen the surface of the nail with a preparatory file and degrease it with a mild solvent so that the color holds well.
For the application of the varnish, deposit thin homogeneous coats. Our tip? Wring the brush on one side, then hold it almost parallel to the nail starting in the middle before extending the application on the sides. The semi-permanent requires passage under an LED lamp between each coat of varnish (1 base coat, 2 color coats, a Top coat). Respect the drying times between each pose to optimize the hold of your manicure.
Finally, moisturize by placing a drop of oil on each cuticle and a dab of cream on your hands, which you will massage until absorbed. There you have it, super soft skin and a sublime manicure!
