In this video I show you how to learn to do your own manicure at home. Learn how to do it professionally yourself so you are not dependent on anyone and can do it anywhere at any time on your own!

These are the products I recommend because they are quality and will last you a long time. These cuticle nippers have lasted me over two years and I have used them in the shower, in bath, and at the sink. All I ever did afterwards was just dab them dry with a towel to get rid of any moisture/water that lingered on after I was done with my manicure. Then I put them back into their protective glove (the nippers come with the glove) and that’s it! 

The other tools have also lasted me for over two years.  Below I go over each of the products I use and why I like them better than the others on the market. 

The Cuticle Pusher

As I describe in my manicure tutorial video above, I particularly like this cuticle pushing tool because it is safe, easy to use, easy to grab in between your fingers when your hands are wet (since you are doing your manicure they will be wet). They work great and will last you a long time. I have not had to replace mine for over two years and they are still going strong for me. It is a great purchase and offers a lot of value for the buck. Get yours by clicking the picture above, or HERE

They are $6.47 USD from the link I provide. 

The Cuticle Nippers

These cuticle nippers have worked so well for me that I cannot imagine working with another tool. They are professional manicure nippers with terrific quality and features. They are easy to hold in your hands without them slipping out or your hands sliding on them. You can get a great grip in either hand and they are ambidextrous so you don’t have to worry how they will perform in either of your hands. 

You might question how I do my manicure on the other hand and the answer is: it is easy once you practice enough. When I first started (when I was thirteen) I admit one hand felt weird and it took me longer to develop that hand vs the other one that seemed to be more naturally inclined at it. With time both of my hands became pros at doing the manicure on the other hand. Don’t worry, you can do it, too. Just be patient with yourself and before you know it you will be able to work a perfect, professional manicure that everyone will envy.

These cuticle nippers cost only $15.99 USD. Get yours HERE

The Nail File

This Nail File tool is $5.25 USD, depending on the size you would prefer to get. I recommend the 6″tool because it is not too long or too short and it will fit into most purses if you like to carry it with you which i recommend you do. Ideally, you want to keep one tool in your purse in case you break a nail, and a second one to keep in your manicure tool box for when you need it during your manicure. Get yours HERE

HINTTo get your nail filed smoothly wihtout it feeling rough, you need to file in one direction and not back and forth. Check out my manicure tutorial video to see how I do it. Subscribe to my YouTube Channel to see more! It tells me you guys are interested so I will continue to make more videos. 

The Cuticle Oil

This cuticle oil is my favorite from all the ones I have tried so far. And there are three main reasons.

First, this product has a brush. This is a major plus because instead of pouring some out on your palm or figuring out other creative ways to apply it onto your nail this products solves the dilemma for you. The brush eliminates the waste associated with other products that do not have this feature.

This leads me into the second point: because of the brush, this product will last you a very long time. The brush is not only convenient but also waste-free. You apply just enough as you need without it going all over your hands.

The third point: it really works. Not only does this oil moisturize your cuticles but it also nourishes them so taht your manicure lasts longer. This cuticle oil is $6.45 USD. Get yours HERE.
