Best Ways To Do Your Own Nails

Choosing to do your own manicure can be a great way to style your nails. There are several different methods of care and types of nail applications to choose from. There are some, though, that are much more practical to do on your own than others. Certain nail applications take many complicated steps and need painstaking practice. To help find the best method that will work for you, we offer this list of the best ways to do your own nails.

Classic Painted Nails

This tried-and-true method is terrific if you are just beginning to do your own nails because it is the simplest. That does not mean, though, that your nails will not look stylish and beautiful. This involves buffing, applying a base coat, applying the colored polish, and finishing with a top coat sealer. You can add a dry coat spray at the end to help avoid smudging.

Acrylic Nails

Acrylic nails are made to purchase in sets that are fairly practical to apply. It is important to make sure you have all of the needed products. You can buy these in full kits, or you can choose to buy products individually. This method involves prepping your hands by removing old polish and natural oils, which interfere with the glue, and trimming your natural nails. You’ll want to paint the false nails before gluing them on, although of course you can paint them afterward if you prefer. It can take some time and patience depending on how you want them to look, but each step is easy enough to do yourself once you’ve had some practice.

Dip Powder Nails

This is one of the best ways to do your own nails, especially if you want a long, colorful look. The process involves dipping your faux nails into colored powders. This process will involve adding a base and adhesive as well as special sealer. This is a much less time-consuming method compared to others. Dip powder is also great for doing ombré designs on your nails. Look to purchase a dip nail kit, which will include everything you need to create the perfect dip application.
