It feels nice to see beautiful manicure on our fingernails. We feel elegant, chic, and confident. But the cost of getting them done in salon manicures can really add up over the course of a year. Add to that is the fact that our regular salon manicure is on hiatus because of the “Safer at Home” order.
In the coronavirus era, your nail maintenance is now in your own hands. A few minutes of self-care might do us good in these trying times. Plus, think about how much you can cut back by trying to do your nails by yourself.
Mastering the at-home manicure is a skill that will serve you well. Fortunately, it’s one that’s not too terribly difficult to pick up. You just have to have the right tools and polishes on hand and learn a few tips and tricks to ensure a salon-quality manicure. It’s not half as easy as the pros make it look, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get the hang of it.
By now you would have observed that a regular manicure at a salon usually includes, apart from a before and after massage, trimming, shaping, filing and buffing your nails, addressing your cuticles, which could include trimming and a cuticle oil treatment. You can opt to have nail polish applied, or you can just have them cleaned. Its cost falls somewhere between $10 and $40. The pros at the salon take, on average, 30 to 60 minutes to do our nails, plus drying time.
Remember that this is a self-care time, so it’s important that you be in an environment where you can do it properly and in a relaxed manner. Find an area in your house where you feel most comfortable, then have a flat surface where you could work on your nails. It might help to get something to elevate and cushion your hands with like a pillow. You will need some time to dry your nails, so might as well look for something to entertain you with that won’t require you to use your hand a lot.
When doing at-home manicure, you will need the basic tools: base and top coat, nail file or nail buffer, polish with colors of your own choice, polish remover, a makeup wedge, and a small brush or cotton swab.
You can always use simple motifs for your nails like creamy pastels, earthy tones, pale shades, and androgynous colors. But if you’re indecisive as to what color to choose, then just choose them all! Rainbow nails are officially a thing, especially this summer. They fit perfectly with hair accessories, bright flip flops, tiny bags, pretty summer dresses, and your cute bikinis.
This season is all about having fun with color. You can have a different one on each nail or you can take the rainbow nail art to another level.
You rock rainbow nails and easily make it your own with different methods and styles. To pull off rainbow nails on gradient shades, you will need all the basic makeup tools plus a tin foil.
There are a lot of other rainbow-inspired nail designs to choose from. It is just a variation of techniques used and personal styles that sets one from the other. Some of the designs you can choose from are:
Rainbow nails are an all-out nail art. They are colourful, cool, and can go with anything we wear. A lot of celebrities have showed pictures of themselves donning multi-coloured nails and you’d be safe to assume that this celeb-approved look is about to be everywhere.
It is becoming even more of a popular hobby in this quarantine season. Being bored is a common pitfall for those of us stationed at our homes, and it isn’t so bad an idea to brighten up the rather drab mood of long days and nights with some nice colors on our hands.
Once you know the basics of manicure, it is fairly easy to turn your fingernails to a rainbow. Just have 10 bottles of solid-colored nail polish — any colors at all — and you, too, can have a rainbow manicure.
