Visiting the nail salon to keep your nails flawless all the time can be very expensive. And there doesn’t seem to be any other choice, right? Wrong. Follow these twelve steps without shortcuts, and you can be the master of your own manicure, in the comfort of your own home. Not to mention that it’ll save you a lot of money!

1. Remove old polish

Use a non-acetone remover to limit the damage done to your nails and start work with a clean state.

3. Choose your file with care

Take great care, since glass and metal can be very harsh for your nails. Use emery boards instead, since they’re less severe.
