I’m sure that most of you love doing your nails yourself or getting your nails done at a parlor or doing literally anything that has to do with nails really. And while we do it for ourselves, many people believe that we do that to please men! Little do they know that it pleases us more than it pleases the men. We do it because we like seeing our nails in a proper condition not just in a party of some other function but at any point of time in general.
Now, all of us would want to be able to go to the salon and get our nails done every time they need a polish. But, unfortunately, every one of us cannot afford to go for weekly manicures just to make sure that our nails are in good condition. Monthly manicures can be no substitute for weekly manicures as our nails require just as much care as any other part of our body.So we have to find a way out to do that. The Internet is the best way of searching for new methods for long and strong nails, new shades of nail polish, new kinds of nail art to try on, and new accessories to apply and what not!
Undoubtedly, we love browsing the Internet for new ideas to try out. But the real question is, are you able to follow what you see on the internet as it is? The answer to this is sure no! That’s because It looks so easy when someone else is doing it, but when we ourselves try it out, the result is nowhere close to what we saw online. If you are sick and tired of this happening to you over and over again, we are here to your rescue. We have brought you some of the easiest manicure tips and tricks through which you can achieve perfect nails every time. And trust me, they are just as easy as they look.

2. Find out the shape of your nails.
You should first pay attention to the natural shape of your nails and then only proceed to filing your nails in the particular shape that you want.This is because Not every kind of nail can be filed into every shape. For instance, if you have square-shaped nails, you can’t achieve the coffin shape without heavily damaging your nail.Now, obviously, you will not want to damage your nails to that extent.So, choose wisely and Once you’ve chosen the shape which you like best and which also fits your nails, get a good nail file and shape your nails as desired.

But that is nothing to worry about. Today we will acquaint you with the whole process.All you need is a small container and some sponge. Stuff the sponge inside and make sure to leave a hole in the middle. Pour some nail polish remover onto the sponge and stick your finger in the middle. Twist it a few times, and that’s all! When you take your finger out, the nail polish will be gone! This is particularly useful for darker shades of polish.
