The Basics of a Beautiful Mani-Pedi

If you're hoping to get just-back-from-the-salon results from your manicure and pedicure, you need to have the right products at your disposal. Begin by shaping and trimming your nails with nail implements like scissors, clippers and nail files. Soak your hands and push back your cuticles with an orange stick and then thoroughly dry your nails before beginning your polishing. Whether you're doing a manicure or a pedicure, you should begin with a thin layer of base coat to create a smooth surface on your nails that will help your colored nail polish adhere more fully and evenly. Then, you're ready for colored polish, which you should apply in two to three thin coats rather than one heavy one. Let your nails dry briefly between coats and after the final one, sweep on a layer of top coat polish. This will help protect your polish from chips and nicks to extend the life of your manicure or pedicure.

Choosing the Perfect Colored Polish

When selecting nail polish products for a manicure and pedicure, you should consider two things: the color of the polish and the finish. The color refers to the actual hue of the product. Lighter colors are perfect for everyday looks, while darker colors add drama to the nails. Some women like to match their nail polish to their lipstick or to their outfits, but there are no rules about coordinating nail color. You don't even have to have the same polish on your hands and your feet. The finish of the nail polish describes its shine. Traditional creme polishes are glossy, while matte products add color without any gleam. You can also find shimmer and glitter polishes that sparkle, and sheer products that are translucent, allowing the natural color of the nails to show through after application.

Other Ways to Get Glamorous Nails

Traditional nail polish isn't the only way to get gorgeous nails. You can also experiment with gel polish, which uses LED light to harden the polish, creating a very durable surface that resists chipping and flaking. At-home LED systems make it possible to perform complete gel manicures and pedicures without having to pay high salon prices. For a unique look to your mani-pedi, you can find nail wraps and decals that allow you to get the look of intricate nail art. If your nails are shorter than you'd like, consider artificial nails for lengthening. Nail treatments can be added to your manicure to address problems like frequent breakage or poor growth. You can find all of the products for your nail care and mani-pedi needs at drugstore.com.
