DIY Manicure

Apr 21, 2015 | Nailcare | Mineral Fusion

An at home manicure can be just as pretty as a professional one. Plus, you'll save money, you can change the color as frequently as you want, and it only takes 10 minutes.

1. Clip. Whether you have short or long nails, it's always great to start by clipping your nails. For short nails, clip to just below the top of your finger keeping them short, but still looking feminine.

2. File. To achieve the desired shape, use a nail file to shape your nails. Tip: mirror the curve at the base of your nails.

3. Buff the nail. Using a buffer will smooth the surface of your nail and even out ridges.

4. Apply Cuticle Treatment. Let it sit for one minute, and push back the cuticle. Softening cuticles will eliminate rough spots and dead skin around the nail keeping your manicure looking fresh for longer. 

5. Apply Base Coat. This lays the foundation for polish application and it protects the nail from being stained by the polish. Wait 3 minutes for it to dry.

6. Flawless nail polish. Make sure you only coat one side of the brush to avoid drips. Start in the middle of the nail and work down to the cuticle, then up to the nail tip, then fan the brush to the right and left sides of the nail until it's evenly coated. Our custom, extra thick brush makes this process a breeze!

7. Apply a second coat of color. Wait 3 minutes.

8. Apply Top Coat. Seal in the color and you're done! Choose from our Top Coat for a classic look, Glitter Top Coat for some fun sparkle, or Gel Top Coat for a plump, ultra-shiny manicure.
