Learn Manicure and Pedicure at Home

A manicure is a cosmetic beauty treatment for the fingernails and hands enjoyed by both sexes. A manicure can treat just the hands, just the nails, or both. A standard manicure would usually include filing and shaping of the nails and the application of polish.

French manicure is the latest and popular method in the nail fashion. A similar treatment performed on the feet is a pedicure. A manicurist can also apply treatments to real nails, such as painting pictures or designs on the nails or applying imitation jewels. French Manicure: 1. Begin by removing any old nail polish with a cotton ball or pad. 2.

Next, exfoliate your hands with either a salt or sugar scrub and then rinse thoroughly. 3. Apply a cuticle cream or drop of sweet almond oil to your cuticles. Leave on for a few minutes and then using an orange wooden stick, carefully push back cuticles until they are all even with each other. 4.

The best way to shape nails is to keep them straight across the tips and round on the edges. Never file nails back and forth across the nail. 5. Next, apply a clear base coat over each of your nails and allow a few minutes to dry. A base coat will help strengthen nails. 6.

Finally, apply a clear topcoat for shine and added protection to your french manicure. French Pedicure: 1. First, remove any old nail polish from your toes with a nail polish remover.
