    How to get a manicure done from home

    Whether the aim is to save money or time, a DIY manicure is something you need to try today from the comfort of your home.

    Step 1: Begin by applying Nail Polish Remover to ensure a clean canvas. We recommend using an acetone-free nail polish remover, as it effectively removes even the darkest shades of nail polish without drying out your nails.

    Step 2: Cleanse your hands and moisturize them. If you’re having a manicure day with friends, take turns massaging each other’s arms for a relaxing experience.

    Step 3: Clip your nails, regardless of their length. For short nails, clip them just below the top of your finger to maintain a feminine look.

    Step 4: File your nails to achieve your desired shape. Tip: mimic the curve at the base of your nails for a polished finish.

    Step 5: Buff your nails to smooth the surface and even out any ridges.

    Step 6: Gently push back your cuticles and apply Cuticle Treatment. Allow it to sit for one minute before pushing back the cuticles. Softening the cuticles eliminates rough spots and dead skin, ensuring a fresh manicure for longer.

    Step 7: Apply a Base Coat to lay the foundation for your polish and protect your nails from staining. Allow 3-5 minutes for it to dry.

    Step 8: Apply your first coat of Nail Polish. Coat one side of the brush to prevent drips, starting in the middle of the nail and working down to the cuticle, then up to the nail tip. Fan the brush to evenly coat the right and left sides of the nail. Our custom, extra thick brush makes this step effortless!

    Step 9: Apply your second coat of colour and wait 3-5 minutes.

    Step 10: Finish with a Top Coat to seal in the color and protect your manicure. Choose from our Top Coat for a classic look, Matte Top Coat for a playful finish, or Gel Top Coat for a plump, ultra-shiny appearance. Allow 3-5 minutes to dry.

    Enjoy your long-lasting, premium manicure!
