So your nails need some TLC but you don’t have the time for a extended manicure nor can your wallet afford the quick stop at the salon. So what do you do? Take things into your own hands, literally. You don’t need to look far for fabulous nails. All you need is 15 minutes, a few key items and these steps to get groomed, neat nails right at home.
Step 1 – Start by clipping your nails using the Fantastiqo Nail Cutter costing Rs 113 from Rs 399. Clip your nails in a straight shape without going below the natural height of your fingers.
Step 2 – Then use the Elite Glass Nail File to go over each nail to file the edges. Glass files work better than others as they are gentler on the nail and last much longer. It is available for Rs 269 from Rs 299.
Step 3 – Once your nails are the right length, begin working on their surface with the Sally Hansen No More Ridges Buffer. Follow the directions on each side of the tool to smoothen the base of the nail, remove ridges and leave them shiny. It is available for Rs 205.
Step 4 – Wipe your nails clean of any residue and then apply a base coat like Wet N Wild The Saving Base. It will give your nails a clean base and prevent premature chipping. It is available for Rs 197 from Rs 299. Follow this with two nail polish coats in a colour of your choice.
Step 5 – Once the nail polish has dried, apply Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat to give the nails a glossy finish and extend their wear. It is available for Rs 563 from Rs 605.
