DIY Nails Mini Makeover



Seriously guys, you should be soo proud of me!  I mean like come on, three posts in a week? That must be some personal world record! Lool I’m kidding but first of all I just really want to say that I am extremely grateful for all of my awesome followers and every ones support. Literally my followers on bloglovin’ are soaring up by the day and my comments are also increasing. I mean if you look at it its hardly much but to me it’s a great amount to me so thank you very much and keep it up guys, well appreciated!!

So today I wanted to let you guys in on how to get your nails looking pretty much flawless!! Your nails really say a lot about you since these days we are often pre-judged based on out outer appearance, but you really want to avoid sending the wrong messages with dirty, stubby, untamed and just unpleasant looking nails. Read on to find out how I give my nails a cute little makeover when they need it>>

So before you start off, you wanna make sure that you have removed any nail polish and fake nails. For this makeover you will need; a warm bowl full of sudsy water; a towel and hand cloth; your nail utensils e.g nail clip, file, buffer, cuticle pusher etc; a cream/lotion and finally some glamorous nail polish if you wish.

Step 1: Soak your hands into the warm water of soap and let it sit for 5-10mins.This really softens up your nails so it's easier to push back the cuticles. It also sanitises your hands and nails from germ and bacteria stuff and  feels very relaxing. Afterwards rinse your hand with warm water and dry with your towel/hand cloth.

Step 2: Now if you nails are too long you can cut them to a desired size with a nail clipper. You can also file them to maintain a good shape and stop them growing too long. Buff your nails starting with the coarser side and then the finer side for fresh shiny nails. After, if you need to, push back your cuticles with a cuticle pusher but be very gentle so you don't hurt yourself. 

Step 3: Moisturize your hand with a good cream or lotion. I personally love the Palmers Cocoa Butter but there are many other choices out on market. This stops your hands becoming dry, flaky and really softens and smooths them up. You can also apply a bit to your nails; other alternatives for your nails are vaseline or an oil.

Step 4: Once your done, you can choose to paint your nails in all sorts of colours, patterns and designs. If you're like me and your school doesn't allow you to paint you nails, you can either skip this step or bend the rules a little and use a clear/transparent nail varnish.

That's all from me today! I hope you enjoyed and you'll try out this cute little DIY. Please comment down below and let me know what you think. Tysm for reading and have a nice day!! xxxxx
