Don’t be a wuss about getting your hand professionally manicured. There are a number of men specailized grooming clubs like John Allen’s that are targeted towards the male clientele. Some of you may not have the time to go to a professional salon, or you may still fell like a wuss about it (dude, get over it already). Here are four easy steps to follow towards giving yourself a manicure in the comfort of your home.
Step One: Take off any polish with acetone and a cotton swab.
Step Two: Soak, Cut and File. Soaking helps to loosen the cuticles, soften the hands and prevent any splitting in the nails. In a bowl of hot water, add a little baby oil and let your hands soak for a few seconds. Clip down your nails using your fingernail clipper. Smooth the edges with a nail filer.
Step Three: Give your cuticles a slight push back and trim off any excess skin.
Step Four: Moisturize & buff. Baxter of California’s Hydro Salve Hand Cream locks in the moisture and the smooth side of the 2-Sided pumice stone gives your nails a more natural shine.
