Never Pay for a Manicure!

21 Aug

For girls, getting a manicure is a must in today’s day and age. If you are a working girl, then you have to look clean and neat from head to toe. Also, who doesn’t like getting pampered.. and massaged? Its so relaxing while somebody is massaging your hands and painting your nails while you’re just lost in your thoughts! BUT wait.. getting a manicure is all fun and games, until you are handed the bill. Getting a manicure is not THAT expensive, but if you do get a mani done once a month then it can add up over the years.

Well, today I went to get my nails done and I just realized that they use all OPI products that are readily available in the market. And it is today that I decided that no more manicures at a salon! I came home and researched some OPI products that were used while doing my manicure today. I admit that OPI products are not cheap, but they are one-time-buy-products that will last you a long time! So, here is the list of products used in the salon I visited today.

The Three (3) products you need to achieve a perfect manicure: 

1. Natural Nail Base Coat by OPI   2. Nailpolish   3. Top Coat by OPI








               1 Step: Natural Nail Base Coat by OPI – this product claims to prevent staining & promotes linger-lasting manicure. After removing the nail cuticles and your old nail polish, generously apply the Natural Nail Base Coat evenly on your nails. Give it about 2-3 minutes to completely dry before moving on to the next step.

2 Step: Apply the nail polish of your choice carefully on your nails. Use a Q-tip dipped in nail polish remover to remove the spilled over nail polish around the nails for a cleaner look. (Tip: for a nail polish to last longer, use good branded nail polishes such as OPI, Sally Hansen, Essie, or Zoya). Let the nail polish dry before moving on to the third step.

3 Step: Top Coat by OPI – this product claims to delivers unparalleled brilliance and luster, keeps colors true, prevents yellowing. After letting the nail polish dry, apply the Top Coat to finish off the look with a nice glossy shine.

Here’s the final look of the manicure I got today using the products stated above:

 Nail Polish Used: Paint My Mojitoes Red (NL B75)

After the mani, my nails are looking bright and clean and I LOVE the Red OPI nail polish, its great color to wear to work everyday!

But after reading this post, I am sure you guys are wondering that getting a manicure is not all about getting the perfect nail polish.. its also about removing the cuticles and cleaning underneath your nails. But worry not.. there are so many manicure kits available in the market that you can use to do your manicure. Here’s one Sally Hansen Manicure Kit

So this is all you need to get the perfect salon style manicure for a price that is a lot cheaper! Hope you all find this post helpful 🙂
