A weekly manicure can do wonders for your nails and cuticles. Not only will a weekly manicure promote faster nail growth, your nails will also become stronger with each manicure. Treat yourself and have a manicure professional done. The usual cost ranges from $10 upwards to $20, plus the manicurists' tip and the appointment lasts about 30-45 minutes with drying time. If going to the nail salon is not an option, opt to give yourself  a manicure at home. Do it yourself  Manicures, not only make your hands look great, they're easy to do!

1. Remove any old nail polish.

2. Shape the nail, using a file or emery board. File each nail tip from corner to center; do not file in a see-saw motion with the emery board because doing so can cause ridges in the nail and nail splitting. By filing nails to a point...this will make nails weak. A rounded or square form is the strongest.

3. Soak the hands in warm, soapy water for a few minutes to remove dirt. This will also soften cuticles and make it easier to push cuticles back. Clean under free edge of nail with orangewood stick.

4. The cuticle is the skin that grows from the finger onto the base of the nail (nail root). Push the cuticle gently back. Leaving the cuticle intact helps to prevent infection of the nail growing tissue. NEVER cut cuticles! This can cause the nail to die if done improperly!

Brush your nails gently in a downward motion in soapy water once you have applied cuticle cream or oil. Dry your nails well and buff them to give a smooth edge with an emery board.

Apply base coat and nail polish with long strokes
and remove any excess polish remaining on cuticles or the sides of the nails with a cotton-tipped orangewood stick, followed by the final coat.

Manicures essentially a procedure that involves washing hands by washing or soaking, applying hand lotion and shape nails after filing and the application of nail polish. On the other hand, implies a pedicure soak your feet, applying lotion, filing, shaping of toenails and applying nail polish. Nevertheless, it is recommended for a visit to a beauty supply or pharmacy to get the necessary equipment.

Never use a tissue to remove the old varnish unless you want small pieces of fabric ruin the appearance of the hands. A cotton ball will do much more better.A base layer is recommended, especially if you opt for darker shades, which over time can discolor nails. Then apply two coats of color, followed by a finish coat.

Doing an at-home manicure instead allows you to paint your nails at your own pace and use your creativity over and over again. If having a French manicure, the tips of nail are painted white and when dry the entire nail is painted with translucent shell pink polish.
