DIY Manicure Tips

Perfectly manicured hands are a must have for every lady but it is not possible for us to rush to a salon everytime to get it done. Save yourself the time and money by following these simple DIY manicure steps.

Step #1

Now soak your nails in lemon juice for about 5 minutes. This will remove the yellowness from the nails.

 

Step #2

Step #3

Buff your nails now. Also apply oil or lotion to nourish them.

Step #4

Apply a thin layer of clear base coat to ensure that your polish lasts longer.

Step #5

Now apply a thin layer of top coat to protect your polish.
