How to Give Yourself a Manicure
Treat your nails with a quick polish using these tips for a fast and easy manicure.
-Hi! I'm Leah Wyar, the beauty director at FITNESS magazine and you're watching an episode of pretty fit tips. No time for manicure. No problem. Nails can look as good as groomed [unk]. First, wash and dry your hands, and while skin is still damp, push back you cuticles with an orange stick. This will prevent the nail polish from staining the surrounding skin. File your nails, then wipe them down with nail polish remover. This removes any oils or residue on the nails that would prevent the nail polish from sticking. Apply your base coat, which I have already done, and then it's time for color. Place your brush right above the bottom of the nail. Push the brush down to the bottom of the nail and then extend it upward. Finally, apply top coat and continue doing so everyday for the next week to lengthen the life of your manicure. That's all for now, stay tuned for another episode of pretty fit tips.
