The Perfect Ten Minute Manicure


Well, the good news is that a professional salon manicure allows you to settle back and let someone else pretty up your nails. The bad news is that those professional manicures cost about $20 and up. I've known some who complain about waiting thirty minutes or longer at a busy salon for the manicure to start.

The fact is that you can get gorgeous nails at home in ten minutes! All it takes is practice, ten minutes, and the right manicure tools. Let's get started with a perfect ten minute manicure. I prefer a clear base coat and polish. Change it up, and add color polish, if you prefer.

Manicure Tools
First, gather together the manicure tools that you need to create the perfect home manicure. Got some money to burn? Well, buy one of those cute little manicure kits at the drug store or beauty supply shop. The manicure requires:

Fingernail Polish Remover
Cotton Balls
Fingernail File/Emery Board
Cuticle Cream
Cuticle Stick
Hand Lotion
Hand Towels
Nail Brush
Warm Sudsy Water
A Small Bowl
Clear Nail Polish
Base Coat
Hydrogen Peroxide

I love Revlon Quick Dry Nail Top Polish because it is very durable and pretty. Sally Hansen Nail Hardener and Fingernail Polish Remover are tops in my book. I also love the unique Opi Nail Polish. Of course, go ahead and purchase anything your heart desires in the manicure aisle, but stick with well-known brands. Some of the off brands are very spotty and smudge.

The Ten Minute Manicure
-Dip a cotton ball in the fingernail polish remover. Thoroughly remove any bits of the old nail polish on your fingernails. Start at the nail bed, and work up to the top of the nail. Thus, avoiding the delicate cuticle area.

-Grab your emery board and start filing your nails in one direction on each side. You are aiming for an oval shape.

-Next, soak your fingernails in a dish of sudsy warm water to help soften the cuticles. Clean your nails with the nail brush.

-Dry your fingers. Rub cuticle cream on the cuticles. Wrap a cotton ball around the cuticle stick and gently push back the cuticles on all your finger beds.

-Wrap a fresh cotton ball around the cuticle stick. Dip the cuticle stick in hydrogen peroxide. Take the stick and clean under the nails. The hydrogen peroxide will remove stains and discoloration.

-Apply a quick dry protective clear base coat to nails. Apply clear polish and you are done! Add a coat of clear polish every other day to keep nails looking fresh. Perform complete manicure weekly.
