First, Prep Your Nails

Let's kick off this at-home manicure journey with the crucial first step: prepping your nails to perfection! If you're aiming for salon-worthy results without the salon price tag, nailing this step is key. Trust us, it sets the foundation for a flawless finish! So, grab your essentials from Poundland and let's dive into this manicure step by step.

- Step 1) Remove the Existing Nail Polish (if Necessary)

It’s time to start with step one of our how-to-do-manicure-at-home guide: remove the existing nail polish from an old manicure. Before we can start prepping your nails for a fresh coat of fabulousness, we've got to bid adieu to any old polish hanging around. Whether you're rocking regular polish or gel nails, Poundland's got you covered with our Classics Artificial Nail Tip Remover and Gel Nail Polish Remover. These gems will make quick work of stripping away any stubborn polish, leaving your nails ready for their beginner-friendly makeover. So, grab your remover of choice and let's get those nails prepped to perfection!

- Step 2) Trim & File Your Nails to Your Desired Shape

Trimming and filing your nails into shape is where the magic happens! Once you've removed any old nail polish, it's time to shape them. Whether you're into the classic square look or prefer something trendier like almond or coffin-shaped nails, Poundland's got you covered with their Make Up Gallery Shape It Out Nail Clippers to help aid this process! Simply clip away any excess length, then grab your trusty nail file to refine those edges. Nail shaping is an art, and with a little practice, even nails for beginners can achieve salon-worthy results. So, go ahead, unleash your inner nail artist, and sculpt nails into the shape of your dreams!

- Step 3) Push Back Your Cuticles

While pushing back your cuticles is an optional step in this process, it's a game-changer for achieving that salon-worthy finish. By gently pushing back your cuticles, you create a clean canvas for your polish to shine. And here's a pro tip: Poundland's Make Up Gallery Cuticle Oil is your secret weapon for making this step a breeze. Just a dab of this magical elixir and those cuticles will soften right up, making it a cinch to push them back without any discomfort. So, if you're aiming for a flawless DIY manicure, don't skip this crucial step! Your nails will thank you later for the extra TLC.

- Step 4) Buff Your Nails

Buffing your nails is the cherry on top for achieving that picture-perfect polish application. Lightly buffing your nails not only smooths out any imperfections but also creates a better surface for the polish to adhere to, ensuring it stays put for longer.

Now, let's keep it real – if you're not feeling the buffing vibes, no worries! It's not a make-or-break step, but if you're aiming for that next-level manicure do it yourself game, it's worth giving it a go. And guess what? Poundland's got your back with their nail buffers available in-store, so you can snag one on your next shopping trip. So, go ahead, buff it out, and get ready to slay those DIY nails like a pro!

It's Time to Start Applying the Nail Polishes

After all the prep-work in the earlier steps is complete, from removing old polish to shaping and buffing those nails to perfection, now's the moment we've all been waiting for - the fun part! Whether you're going for a classic nude, a bold red, or something sparkly, Poundland's got a rainbow of nail polishes to suit every style and mood. So, grab your favourite shades and let's get ready to paint the town (or at least your nails)!

- Step 5) Apply the Base Coat

Now, listen up, because this step might just be the secret to a long-lasting manicure. While applying a base coat is optional, trust us, it's worth considering if you want your nail art to stay put for longer. Poundland's Make Up Gallery Ridge Filler Base Coat is here to save the day, creating a smooth canvas for your polish to adhere to. So, if you're serious about doing nail art at home and want those vibrant colours to pop and last, don't skip this step! Your nails will thank you later for the extra TLC.

- Step 6) Nail Polish

It's finally time to jazz up those nails with Step 6 of our DIY manicure and pedicure at home guide. Apply two thin coats of your chosen nail polish colour, taking your time to ensure a neat and even application. And hey, if you accidentally colour outside the lines, no worries!
