One of the biggest appeals to having a manicure is the relaxing feeling you get from having your hands soaked and pampered. The good news is, you don’t need to dish out money to an expensive salon to get this pampered feeling at home.
You can create your own home manicure treatment by combining a tablespoon of olive oil with an equal amount of sea salt. Get your towels and moisturizer ready, and prepare to indulge yourself with your specialized nail spa.
Before you begin, remove any polish from your fingernails, and wash your hands thoroughly to remove any oil or dirt. You can shape or shorten your nails using an emery board, being careful to file in one direction at a time. The back and forth sawing action damages your nails and reduces their strength, which can lead to splitting or breakage.
