7 Little Known Tips for a Perfect Manicure ...


Having a great manicure is not an impossible or difficult goal.2

If you're like most women, you want your nails to always look healthy, professional, and beatiful.

But if you're a mom or if you work a full time job, it may be hard for you to find the time to keep your tips looking their best.

Here's a few fast, inexpensive yet effective ideas to try out!

1. Wear a Nail Strengthener

I have very weak nails so I wear nail strengthens all the time.

They give your nails a healthy shine and help them grow out longer.

Two of my favorite brands are Sally Hansen and Neutrogena.

They both cost about $5 apiece but they last for a very long time.

You only need to apply them about once a week.

They dry within 5 seconds and they are very effective.

I would encourage every one to use these!

2. Avoid Picking Your Nails and Cuticles

This is the number one way to ruin a nice manicure.

If you get a hangnail or a ripped cuticle, stop and take the time to file or clip it.

Ripping or biting it off invites infection into your nail bed and causes your nail and/or cuticle to grow back uneven.

Keep a nail file or clippers in your purse or desk drawer at all times so it will be handy.

3. Do Mini-manicure in the Shower

Your shower is the ultimate at-home spa!!!

As you condition your hair, rub some conditioner into your cuticles as well.

The hot water and steam will allow it to penetrate deeply into your skin and then you can use the corner of a washcloth or a cuticle stick to gently push your cuticles back.

This is also the best time to trim your cuticles should that be necessary because the water will have softened your skin.

After you get out of the shower apply lotion to lock in the moisture.
