The Nails Have It
No Fail Mood Boosters
By Tera Moore
In these tough economic times we are all trying to find ways
to cut financial corners. ModelsDesired.com is going to show
you step-by-step an inexpensive way to get a high-end
manicured look at home.
Remove all residues on your nails with cotton ball sutured
with a nail polish remover containing acetone.
Avoid the nail but massage the nail bed with oil. Olive oil
straight from your kitchen cabinet will do. Gently push back
your cuticles with an orange stick or a plain nail stick
with a bit of cotton ball at the top.
If you want the nail polish to stay in place, go back over
the nail with the orange stick soaked with nail polish
remover to remove residual oil.
Use a clipper to trim nails (if needed). Then file to smooth
edges. Remember only file your nail in one direction so as
not to split the nail.
Take a buffing block and go over your nails to smooth nail
surface ridges. Wipe off any remaining dust or grit with a
cloth or napkin.
Step 6: Apply a base coat to your nails to fill in remaining
ridges and prevent discoloration.
If you wish, add a coat of your favorite color and then a
Viola! A salon manicure for pennies!
