No one enjoys going to the salon for a mani/pedi more than me, but if you like to do that weekly, or even every other week it can add up. Fast. I've gotten really into doing my nails at home and I have to say - I'm loving it. It looks just as good as a salon job, and I have all my favorite nail polishes, so why not? Here are my steps for the perfect DIY manicure:
1. Remove old polish/clean the nails
Using nail polish remover and cotton balls, wipe old polish off in a circular motion. If you don't have any polish on, just do a quick swipe on each nail to make sure it's good and clean.
2. Trim and/or file your nails keeping nails short and rounded
