With so much to do and so little time our nails can start to look a little worse for wear, but we all can find a spare 15 seconds, right? We’ll show you how to give your digits the salon treatment at home with soothing cuticle care, nourishing hand and skin treatments, and how to strengthen nail beds and prevent breakage. Give your nails some much needed TLC with this quick and easy DIY manicure!


1. Start With A Clean Slate

Start by removing any current polish on the nail with the Expert Touch Lacquer Remover. Without the harsh drying effects of many removers, this solvent will erase even the most stubborn of colors like dark reds or blues and won’t allow any stains to linger behind.

2. Apply The Specialty Coats

Next, reach for your multitasking Start-to-Finish 3 in 1 coat. Apply a base coat layer to strengthen the nail and help your polish adhere to the surface better. One coat is all you need and it will be dry in a snap.

3. Try A New Shade

Time for the fun part–pick your favorite color! Classic reds like the Race Red or cool neutrals like the You’re So Vain-illa are always in style but have fun trying out different shades! You could also pick one different color for your ring fingers to make the manicure pop.

Pro tip: Apply your chosen color by starting out in the middle of the nail bed and sweeping out from the cuticle base to the nail tip in one smooth stroke. Repeat this stroke on each side of the nail. Always allow the first coat to dry completely before applying a second.


4. Seal and Protect Your Handiwork

Grab the trusty Start-to-Finish for a finishing top coat shine and chip prevention. Brush on the restorative Avoplex Cuticle Oil To Go that will soften cuticles and prevent hangnails from fraying the edges of your new manicure. We love how this pen is so small it can easily be tucked in our bags for travel.
