Default at home mani pedi...

i am planning on doing my own nails and i am curious as to see what the rest of you use when doing your nails at home. i have heard to use peperment oils and it will soften up your skin so it is easy to push back the cuticals. and also to use hot water when doing it because that too also loosens up your skin. my one friend advised me to run a hot bath and basically do my nails n toes while in there soaking then when i get out then just polish them and they will look like i had them done in the salon.

Thats true. Actually I do my toes and feet and nails when im in the tub. I take one day a week and soak in the tub for a good hour or longer. Then I lather on the lotion and stuff after I get out. Then its into my pjs with a good movie and paint my toes and fingers. I look and feel great the next day =!

thats a great idea about soaking in the tub and doing your nails.. i like to file my nails and let me toes soak.. i have too much A.D.D to lay in the bath for that long... i get bored.. haha im like a little kid.. i take washable markers and i draw on the tub balls and the glass and everything.. i love it.. haha i come up with all kinds of creative designs... lol

if you have any extra money go to a place like tj max or norstroms rack.. they sale things that soften up your feet when you soak them.. it makes the skin around your toes super soft so you are able to clean them up and they look really good, i usually worrie about the chemicals but all u really need is a pumice stone, some relaxing food scrub/ and soak and then your all set to do your own nails.

I like the soaking and then doing your nails thing...never though of doing that. I think I'm going to buy those glue on nails and put some on again. I liked how they worked and they looked really cute when I did them...like if I went to the salon and got them done. I haven't been able to do that for awhile...money's been kindof tight since I have to buy my college textbooks...those things are so expensive!!!

just soak your feet in warm/hot water with some bath salts, and some lavender oil. that will cause you to relax and then clean up your cuticals and then base coat, color, then top coat. that the best for toes.. finger nails.. i usually just file them then i base coat, color, then top and im ususally done and every body things i have my nails done at the salon!

i usually like doing my nails right when i get out of the shower. i never use those oil or whatever before to soften the cuticles but a nice shower surely does the dealio for me. i have one of those cuticles pushers so i just use that after i get out of the shower. then i just remove the cuticles. file my nails and then paint them. i wish i knew how to do the arylics at home but i know it'll be a mess at my house if i tried. =T

i love just doing my own nails at home.. i don't mind getting my nails down at a nail salon but they are just too overpriced for my budget and i hate it when i have to take them off. arcylic hurt soooo bad!! anyways.. i usually just do them after i get out of the shower too! push the cuticles back... file my nails until i get the shape i want.. and theni just paint them. usually takes me a really long time when i'm paiting them and waiting for them to dry and then putting another top coat on it to make it shinny
