How do you prep your hands for the perfect at-home manicure?
I always start by moisturizing my cuticles and pushing them back. My hands get so dry because they are always in water so moisturizer is a must! After that I’ll trim my nails down and shape them. It’s always a good idea to wipe your nails down with alcohol to remove any oils and then wash!
Are there any nail trends that are good for beginners to try?
I love polka dots- SO easy!
What are some tips for doing basic nail art (french manicure, dots, stripes)?
For polka dots I use a toothpick (for tiny dots) or the end of an old makeup brush for larger ones. I start with the larger dots and fill in with a few smaller. Keep the number uneven- it looks better! I also quickly remove any polish that got on my hands or around my nails with a small brush that I dipped in nail polish remover.
How do you change up your DIY manicures for special events?
