Having beautiful groomed nails is very important for your overall look, this applies for men and woman. Keeping them fresh and cleand should be proritized on a weekly basis because the amount of attention hands and nails receive will amaze you.

On this post i will teach you how to get salon-grade manicure at home.

I also created a video, scroll down to see.

For men: Only follow tips 2, 3, 4 and 8 for freshly groomed nails.

1- Remove all nail polish with a nail polish remover.

2- Soak your hands in warm water for 5 minutes (for extra pampering you can put drops of essential oils), and clean them with a nail brush.

3 – With a cuticle pusher, push the cuticle back gently (don’t cut your cuticles).  I use the Pushy & Nail Cleaner from Tweezerman.

4 – File your nails in one direction. Do not file back and forth as it damages the nails. And afterwards with a buffer, buff your nails so it smooths out any flaky or uneven bump. You cant get all in one with Tweezermann Neon Buff & Shine Block.

5 –  Wash your hands with soap and apply a base coat. This prevents your nails from staining and it makes your manicure lasts.

6 – Next, apply a thin coat of your nail color, wait till it dries completely and apply again a second coat. Clean up any mistakes with a cotton swab, nail polish remover and an orange stick.

7 – When your second coat is fully dried apply a Top Coat.

8 – And finally to finish your manicure put oil on your cuticles.

Keep your nails and cuticle hydrated daily with hand cream.
