My nails get chipped so often, (mostly due to taking my Pandora bracelet off - those things are fiddly) that having coloured nail polish on is too much hassle. I still like to have my nails neatly groomed though, and that's how I came up with this at-home manicure routine. Read how you can achieve nicely groomed nails in 10 steps!

What you'll need:

  • Nail File
  • Cuticle Pusher
  • Nail Varnish Remover
  • Cuticle Balm
  • Nude Nail Varnish Colour and a Base Coat
  • Tissue

Step 1:
Using any nail varnish remover, take off any existing nail varnish. You can use a tissue, cotton pads, cotton wool, or cotton buds - anything you have any in the house!

Step 2:
File your nails and make sure your nails are all the same length. It's up to you what shape you want to go with - I prefer to go for a more square look.

Step 3:
Using a cuticle pusher, push back your cuticles - but be careful not to push too far, as it might hurt.

Step 4:
Taking your base coat, apply a thin layer to all of your nails. I used a nude pink - it shows up as pretty much clear so I went with that.

Step 5:
Once the base coat has dried, apply your nude colour. I personally think a more transparent shade works better, otherwise chips in the varnish will be more visible (at the end of the day, we want this to last as long as we can.) I applied 2 coats of my nude colour.

Step 6:
Apply cuticle balm. As the winter months approach, dry hands are common, and cuticle balm helps. Healthy looking nails are much better than dry looking ones.

Step 7:
Last step is to admire your lovely looking nails!

Hope you all enjoyed, and let me know in the comments below if you've tried it out, or what your manicure tips are.

Bye for now,
