Can’t afford a manicure but need to take care of your nails also? This is one of the main issues that girls face when taking care of their nails. People usually don’t have adequate knowledge of how to take care of their nails. If people ever feel the need to take care of their nails, they get a manicure or a pedicure. Rarely do people ever resort to other options. But we are here to tell you that there are ways to take care of your nails without going for a manicure or pedicure regularly.

Firstly, you can invest in essential oils which will help make your nail stronger. These essential oils are the same oils that salons invest in for manicures and pedicures. These oils make the nail healthier and avoid letting them break. You can just apply these oils around the cuticle area of the nail and dunk them in warm water for a few minutes. This will help keep your nail stronger for a long period. Secondly, you can invest in a nail kit that is readily available at makeup stores or grocery stores as well. These nail kits include a nail cutter, cuticle cutter, filer, and buffer.

You can watch videos online on how to cut your cuticles because that is the most sensitive area of the nail. After this, you can apply any essential oil and then dunk them in warm water. Moving forward, you can file your nail according to your desired length. For further care and shine, you can use a buffer to add shine to your nail. It might make you feel as if you applied a shiny polish to your nail. These have higher longevity and can be refreshed after buffing your nails.

Nail care is rarely discussed but who knew it was doable at your home as well? Taking care of your nails is almost similar to getting a manicure but in the comfort of your home.
