How To: Easy Manicure at Home | DIY

hope you all had a great weekend. I surely did and now looking forward to a whole new week with lots of plans. Speaking of plans, it was my nail care day yesterday so I filmed a video to show you all how I do that , it is very easy and quick. Quick is what we want,right. So, this is just how I do it, if you want you can do it the conventional way where you scrub your hands first, have those fancy bowls and get the candles burning. All that I do when I have all the time in the world while this one is very much ideal for those trying to get their nails done while kids are having their nap or during a lunch break. I won’t be explaining anything in detail here as the video will show you the whole process.


What we need:


  1. A towel or plastic mat– spread it on the table or the space where you are going to do your manicure
  2. Cuticle remover – Cuticle is the dead skin lying at the base of your nails. The remover softens the cuticles,making the whole process easy.
  3. Antiseptic / Disinfectant- In case you have hurt yourself during the process most likely you won;t even know as you might cut a dried skin not knowing you overdid it,applying disinfectants helps a lot. Make sure your tool are sterilized and these disinfectants are for that purpose too.
  4. Cuticle Pusher- Gently push the surface of your nails with this tool and the cuticle will be removed.
  5. Cuticle Clipper/cutter- Cut the extra skin you see after pushing cuticles.
  6. Nail Clipper/cutter- To shape the nails
  7. Nail File- To smoothen the edges of nails.
  8. Manicure or Nail brush (whatever you call it in your country)- Brush off the cuticles from above your nails. You can use nay spare tooth brush too.
  9. Nail Polish(Optional) – This is totally up to you if you want to finish off your nail routine with a nail color or just a base coat or neither.

Here is the video for you guys ❤

Motivational Post- Pamper Yourself ( Manicure/Pedicure)

addtext_com_MDIxNzI1MzUwNQThis post is dedicated to all those ladies out there who are lost in the world of kids, husband, in-laws,  job. We always have excuses for not able to do anything for ourselves at home.

I’m not against going to beauty parlors to get beauty services done, but if one can do at home, why not? Many of you would disagree to this and would say how can I do this with kids around or when they are asleep there’s the house chores that needs to be attended to. Ladies, it’s just a matter of determination, willingness and time management. It’s not really that hard. There was a time when I hardly comb my hair, I think there were times when I even couldn’t wash my face. But I decided I’m not going to let this continue. After the kids leave for school, I take all the time to scrub my face, brush my teeth, comb my hair, apply oil then continue with my work. If your kids are not school going, it’s not that you will be standing by their side like a security guard 24 x 7. There will be a time when they will be busy playing or doing something they like, that’s the time you need to give yourself. Put them for a short nap, and that’s the best time for your manicure/pedicure. you don’t need to do mani/pedi on daily basis, so you can do facial on other days etc.

Trust me guys, this feels so good, when you feel good, you feel happy, happy mommy happy home 🙂 ❤
