How To Give Yourself A Spa Manicure

Giving a spa manicure requires four steps:
1. Shape your nails to perfection. Use a file to shape your nails into the preferred form: square, oval, squoval, almond shape, or round (I prefer squoval). Buff nails with a buffer to take off the top layer and make them smooth. 

2. Apply cuticle softener to the cuticles and soak nails in warm soapy water for five minutes. Using a cuticle pusher, push a cuticle back.

3. Exfoliation and massage. Apply hand scrub with a circular movements and massage it into the skin. Wash your hands with warm water and soap. (Sometimes I apply a masque for five minutes). After you've dried your hands with a towel apply hand cream onto the skin.

4. Choose and apply polish.

Keep in mind that some colors look different on the nail than in the bottle so i recommend to try it first. 

If you still can't decide on a color be creative and use it both :) But before applying nail polish make sure to apply a base coat it will help protect your nails from the damaging effects of nail polish.

If you feel like doing something special you can try a design by using a thin brush

Put on a top coat to make the polish last.

Giving a spa manicure requires four long steps, but your nails and hands look perfect after that.
