Essential oils-5 Tips for the Smoothest At Home Manicure

Vivasan essential oil

Doing your own nails does not necessarily translate into a less than stellar manicure compared to what a salon does. While it takes a lot of time to practice and perfect your technique, there are five tips that you can follow to make your manicure look more than just polished.

Tip #1: Pre-Polish Pampering

Healthy hands and nails make for a smoother application of nail polish and a better-looking manicure. Make it a regular habit to massage your hands with essential oils or base oils mixed in with hand cream to keep your hands smooth. Many essential oils and base oils added to hand cream help repair and restore dull and unhealthy nails. If you’ve noticed that your nails are yellowing, have hangnails, are chipped and have ridges, you should focus on applying essential oils and base oils mixed with hand creams or balms to it to make the surface smoother. Smoother nails will allow for nail polish’s better adherence and staying power.

Tip #2: Buff and Trim

If nail length is not an issue, it is advised to buff and cut your nails prior to applying polish. Shorter nails are less prone to contact with everyday objects, so they don’t tend to chip as much or as quickly compared to longer nails. In addition to this, buffing your nails can help further smoothen the surface of the nails for better nail polish application.

Tip #3:  Roll – Don’t Shake!

Always roll your nail polish between your palms prior to usage. A lot of people tend to give the bottle a good shake, but doing so can lead to more air bubbles that can pop and ruin your manicure when applied to the nails. A couple of rolls between the palms should do the trick of getting the color and the binder in the nail polish to gel together.

Tip #4: Edit When Dry

Many people automatically fix nail polish mistakes as soon as they make it, but the better way is to wait for the polish to dry before “erasing” the mistakes with a cotton bud soaked in nail polish remover. When you try to fix mistakes while the polish is still wet, you can smear the other areas by accident. Fixing dry polish assures you that you are freer to move your fingers without fear of smudging up a nail. For finer detailing and editing, try wrapping a very small piece of cotton soaked in polish remover to the tip of a toothpick and use that to erase small mistakes.

Tip #5: Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize!

And finally, give your hands another indulgent application of essential oils or base oils mixed with creams or balms. The extra moisture from the essential oils and base oils also acts as a protective coating to your nails and hands and extends the life of your polish.

Following these five tips for a smoother at-home manicure will yield better results with each application. Pretty soon, you will marvel at the amount of money you’ve saved by doing your own nails instead of getting them done at the nail salon. Don’t be surprised if people start asking you to do their nails!
