The weather is starting to change and with that comes a need to moisturize skin to protect it from the elements. Sometimes we forget how much tender loving care our hands and nails need. Save yourself a few coins and check out this diy manicure that will make your nails look youthful and refreshed!



1. Clean: Use a non acetone polish remover to remove old nail polish. Next, take a mild soap and wash your hands and nails, make sure to clean out any debris that may be trapped beneath your nails.



2. Soak your hands in a bowl of warm water for 5 minutes, dry and then add cuticle oil to your nail bed and cuticle. A great choice for cuticle oil is grape seed, vitamin E or olive oil. Let the oil soak in for 3 minutes.



3. Use a cuticle pusher to gently push back the cuticle on each of your nails.



4. Remove excess oils with your nail polish remover and then apply a thin clear base coat to your nails.



5. Paint your nails with 2 thin coats of your favorite nail polish color and finish with a quick-drying top coat. After nails are completely dry, apply lotion or moisturizer to hands.



*Bonus Tip* Use a q-tip dipped in nail polish remover to correct where you may have painted outside of your nails.



With just a few products, you can get gorgeous manicured nails right at home!

    3. I use any coconut oil that doesn't have added harsh ingredients in it. I get my coconut oil from the Vitamin Shoppe in liquid form.

  2. Essie makes the best polishes and their brush does make it easy to get a salon quality job at home. I think I am going to get that blue from Essie, I love it.
