It can be great to visit a beauty salon and have a real pampering session, however we do not always have enough time to do this. Women with busy lives often have to find ways to pamper themselves at home and thankfully, it is really easy to do this. When you have a spare half an hour, why not give yourself a manicure at home, that will leave you feeling glamorous without the large price tag of a salon treatment.
Start by filing your nails into the shape that you want. Once you have done this, soak your fingers in warm water, to clean them and soften the cuticles. Next, gently dry your hands and apply cuticle cream. Taking care of your cuticles is something that many women forget about but that is actually quite important. Keeping them neat will go a long way towards making your hands look glamorous and perfect for showing off gorgeous jewellery from places like List Of Five. Push your cuticles back with a cuticle pusher, never forcing them or being rough. Once you have done this, it is time to apply nail varnish.
Choose the colour that you prefer and get painting. It is useful to keep Q-Tips nearby, to fix any mistakes and make sure that everything remains neat. Listen to music or have a television show playing in the background so that you are not bored and can enjoy the relaxation. Once you have painted all your nails, allow them to dry and apply another coat if necessary. Allow this to dry and then apply a clear top coat that will fix the polish in place and help to avoid chips for as long as possible. This is a great way to relax and pamper yourself, without paying a lot or leaving the comfort of your own home.
