How to achieve Salon nails at home | Blogmas #9

9 Dec 2017

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely festive December! Today's blogmas post is all about how to achieve salon nails at home. So I recently found these Elegant Touch false nails lying in a box under my bed that my sister had got me last Christmas. I decided that because my nails were looking a little worse for wear, I thought I would give them a try.

I began by making sure all my nails were clean and any polish was removed. I then filed my nails down to make sure they would not appear underneath the false nails using a nail file. I then made sure each nail fit my nails and placed them on without the glue to see what they looked like.  I then used quite a lot (probably too much) glue on each nail and placed them carefully onto my own nails and then pressed down quite firmly to make sure they were in place. I let each one dry probably for about 15 seconds before moving onto the next.

Once I had applied all the nails I then scrubbed off the nail glue that had got onto my hands and then used the Molton Brown white truffle hand exfoliator. This makes your hands feel amazing and is great if you don't like the feel of hand cream on your hands. It leaves them feeling moisturised but not greasy and smelling lovely. 

I would then go in the another Molton Brown hand cream just to make sure my hands are not dry.

I tend to use the CND nail oil when I shellac my nails from home, as this allows the shellac to last longer on the nails and nourish the cuticles.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Have a wonderful December! xxx
