The Perfect At-Home Manicure
We agree it’s not always easy to get the basics right, so we asked mani master & nail artist @AmyyTran to develop the ultimate DIY step-by-step tutorial to make your nails look picture-perfect, yourselves.
Because it’s no secret that the perfect nailfie starts with a proper manicure. Here are the 10 easy steps to achieve salon nails at home.
Prep for Perfection:
Properly prep nails by removing any oil/debris with OPI Lint-Free wipes and nail polish remover.
Apply OPI Exfoliating Cuticle Cream to the area around the nail.
Use a cuticle stick to gently push back cuticles.
Cleanse nails after nail prep is complete.
File nails to preferred length and shape.
Lightly buff nails to smooth out the surface.
Cleanse nails a third time using OPI Lint-Free wipes as a final prep step.
Apply 1 coat of OPI Nail Envy as a base coat for added strength.
Apply 2 coats of OPI Nail Lacquer.
Wait for the nail lacquer to dry and lastly add 1 coat of OPI Top Coat to finish.
