How to: manicure (English)

Your hands are like your business cards. You use them to introduce yourself, you make hand gestures with it during a conversation, you grab everything with them and you work with them. You actually do everything with your hands. And because they work so hard for you, you may spoil them every now and than with a lovely manicure. Today we will show you how you can give your hands a manicure.


Step 1: Start with disinfecting your hands by washing them with soap and rub them with antibacterial gel.

Step 2: Remove your nail polish. To prevent your nails of drying out you can use an acetone free nail polish remover.

Step 3: File your nails in the shape that you want. If you have long nails and you want to try something different, you can shape your nails into the stiletto form. This are pointy nails. You can make them really pointy. Or you can file them a little bit round.

Step 4: Rub in some cuticle oil into your cuticles and push them back with a rosewood stick.

Step 5: Take a 4 way polish block and start to polish your nails. This makes your nails super smooth and shiny.


Step 6: Spoil your hands with a lovely home made hand scrub. Take one tablespoon of sugar and mix this with a little bit of olive oil. Rub your hands together like you are washing them and scrub off all the dead skin. Rinse with warm water and wash your hands with soap.

Step 7: Grease your nails with a nail balm like the S.O.S nail balm from Essence or the Lemony Flutter from Lush.

Step 8: Moisture your hands with a moisturising hand cream or a serum like Tiny Hands from Lush.

Step 9: To finish your manicure you can polish your nails. You can only use a base coat if you want your nails to look natural. Or you give your hands a coloured French manicure.

Now your hands and nails are looking great and they are ready to show them to the world.

P.S. This is also a fun thing to do on a girls night with al your friends. Or you give your mother a manicure. I bet she will loves it.
