Knowing how to get natural nails perfect at home helps you save money by not having to pay for manicures or pedicures as often, and it also keeps you from being exposed to the chemicals in artificial nail polish and other treatments. Natural nail spas free of chemicals are hard to come by in today’s society.

At Home Care: 

Clean your nails well

A clean nail starts with a good wash. Make sure you use soap and water or a non-abrasive antibacterial cleanser. This will remove any excess dirt and oils that are on your nails. Also, be sure to scrub between your fingers (where bacteria loves to hide) and under each fingernail where it can be difficult to reach but is extremely important when trying to get rid of nail fungus. Finally, dry your hands thoroughly after washing them so you don’t accidentally slip up later. Properly dried hands can help prevent cracking or peeling too! Keep those nails moisturized: Even if natural nails are still growing out, they should still be moisturized regularly to avoid cracking and peeling – even if they’re not very long yet! Choose oil over lotion as it absorbs into your skin better than creams or other lotions do which helps prevent drying out during application.

Trim your nails

When you get a manicure, ask your nail artist to trim your cuticles. Don’t do it yourself, or you might accidentally cut them too short and cause an infection. You should also avoid using anything that resembles a nail file (like a piece of sandpaper), because that can also lead to infections. File in one direction only—usually from top to bottom—and use rounded strokes rather than back-and-forth motions. What is acrylic powder? Artificial nails are made by applying acrylic powder over natural nails, which makes them stronger and thicker. If a nail is thick enough on its own, however, you don’t need extra strengthening; instead opt for a clear polish or have regular mani/pedis so that your nails don’t break as easily.

Moisturize your cuticles

If you want your nails to look their best and be healthy, it’s important that you take care of them. Make sure you moisturize your cuticles (the skin around your nails) regularly. Use lotion or petroleum jelly on your fingertips, too. Try different types of lotions and ointments, but remember that some beauty products are full of chemicals and dyes that can damage natural nails over time. Stick with water-based lotions instead. They may cost a little more than regular brands, but they are worth it. To soften calluses, soak a cotton ball in castor oil overnight and rub into hard areas like your cuticles every night before bedtime.

Choose your polish wisely

Choosing a polish color is only half of your manicure equation—the other half is picking a formula that works with your lifestyle. If you’re looking for just polished nails at all times, you should look for an easy-to-remove lacquer. If you don’t have time to soak off gel-polish weekly, make sure it has a hard finish and won’t chip easily. And if you want something in between those two ends of the spectrum, don’t forget about polish wipes! No matter what kind of nail care you need on-the-go, there are plenty of options out there.

Remove nail polish properly

If you’re at risk of serious health issues due to nail polish, then it might be a good idea to remove your nail polish properly. To do so, soak cotton pads in pure acetone and place them on each fingernail for 10 minutes or so. You can also use wooden sticks (like popsicle sticks) as a base for each finger as you wait for your nails to dry out. Do not rub or pull off excess nail polish because it will damage your nails and leave them unhealthy looking.

Clean up your mistakes!

Mistakes happen, but they can also be easy fixes. If you’ve accidentally spilled nail polish on your nails or cut them too short, don’t worry! The mistakes that take place during at-home manicures and pedicures are often easier (and less expensive) to fix than you might think. Simply grab a bottle of nail polish remover and start cleaning up your mistake with these simple steps # Things needed: nail polish remover, cotton balls and/or pieces of toilet paper for each nail. Avoid acetone based products if possible because it is extremely harsh to skin, nails and hair. Instead use non-acetone based nail polish removers as it is safer for both skin and nails than acetone products.

Consider gel manicures

Gel manicures are great because they have a long shelf life. The polish stays glossy and smooth for up to two weeks without chipping, which makes them perfect for everyday wear (and won’t leave you with unkempt nails at work). Gel manicures will set you back about $30 at your local nail salon, but you can also buy gel-polish kits for at-home use that cost anywhere from $15-$40. This is a good option if you like trying different colors but don’t want to get a new professional polish job every time you want something new. If going au naturel is more your style, try nail wraps: They tend to be easier on natural nails than regular nail polish and stay on longer as well—usually 4-7 days. And unlike most nail polishes, they aren’t toxic so they don’t dry out or damage nails over time.
