I majored in Chemistry and once thought about going into the cosmetic industry, learning to formulate soaps and cosmetics. I eventually picked up jobs in medical research instead. When I was in college, I used to work at my aunt’s friend’s nail salon for a brief period of time. As much as I love playing with colors and design aspect of nails, I knew from the start that nail job was not for me. However, I picked up lots of tips and tricks on what goes into a good looking set of nails. So read on if you want to know how to do your own nails, at home, with just a few simple steps.
Make sure you have these similar tools and products before you start:
LUSH hand cream in Handy Gurugu
OPI nail polish (shade featured: In the cable car-pool lane)
STEP 1: MOISTURIZE
STEP 2: CUTICLE CARE
STEP 3: NAIL CARE
STEP 4: WASH YOUR HAND!
STEP 5: POLISH
Make sure to clean any significant polish traces on your cuticle skin area with a Q-tip dipped in some nail polish remover. And YOU ARE DONE!!!
I forgot to take the after photo of my nails after shooting for this post, but you can find loads of my nail photos on my Instagram, here. I find having all of the tools and products ready shortens the time it takes to do my nails. Also, doing nails takes time, so relax and make sure you have your favorite music/show played in the background while doing it. It is not a bad idea to gather some girlfriends and include nails as a part of the fun! Hope this post was helpful and have a fantastic day!
