Home Manicure – Tips and Tricks

  1. Pat says:

    Your nails always look great! I do love the pampering of a mani/pedi but I rarely have a manicure ~ you know, that $$$ thing. ???? As an fyi, the girl did tell me to file the nails first and then do the soaking, cuticles, etc. The theory is that the water softens the nails, thus leading to possible nail damage, especially for those with weak & fragile nails, like me! Anyway, keep sharing all your wonderful tips about everything!!!

    I thought I was the only one in the world who cannot sit through a manicure. It is truly a waste of time! And like you, I hate any more than 1/16th of an inch past my finger. So glad the short nail look came into style. I never actually even touch my cuticles, but I think I will look into your system for taking care of them! My big tip for taking care of hands and nails is this: I use Cetaphil (the big tub of it!) on my hands, and put on gloves when I go to bed. Everything is nice and soft in the morning.

    I’m so happy that you did this on your blog! I wanted to catch it on your IG stories but I missed that day and was freaking out. I’m not a salon manicure kind of gal. It’s too expensive, too touchy and I hate having to come up with chit chat during it. I don’t feel so alone now that I see you’re not really into salon manis either. Thanks for your great tips & tricks!

      hahahaha I HATE sitting there.. I do my own while I’m watching Netflix and it’s a lot more comfortable for me.

    Great tips! I have long nails (although used to be an extreme nail biter). I’m almost 56! Yikes…and have never had a manicure before.
    I do my own. I’ve had a pedicure once and now do my own. Way too much $$$ to spend on this here in Ontario ????????
