Gift Tip #33: Nail Polish

It's a nice girlfriend gift that's a simple "thinking about you" gesture. A pretty bottle of nail polish. Maybe you will choose your homegirl's favorite color or give the polish based off the name of it. I mean how can you resist a polish titled Party in my Cabana or Clubbing till Sunrise...both of which are a part of OPI's South Beach collection.
Here's what you'll need to do an at home manicure:

Things You'll Need:
Cotton Swabs
Cuticle Creams
Hand And Body Lotion
Manicure Kits
Nail Brushes
Nail Buffers
Nail Cleaners
Nail Clippers
Nail Files
Nail Polish Remover
Nail Polishes
Nail Strengthening Polish
Cotton Swabs
1 Remove old nail polish thoroughly.
2 Soak hands in warm water for 10 or 15 minutes. Dry hands.
3 File nails in one direction only. Avoid using a seesaw motion.
4 Push back cuticles. Use a cuticle moisturizer if they do not push back easily after soaking.
5 Massage your hands. Use a moisturizing lotion. Use an exfoliating lotion if your skin is dry and/or roughened.
6 Apply a base coat. Allow it to dry.
7 Apply polish. Clean any stray marks with a cotton swab dipped in polish remover.
8 Add a second coat for deeper color.
9 Finish the manicure with a top coat of clear polish

Pin It!
