With a tough economy, people are always looking for ways to save money in any way they can. Beauty seems to be important to so many in this society and keep oneself looking beautiful and young can become costly to the average American.
There are ways in which a person can make their nails look as beautiful as if they were done in a professional salon. Most nail salons will charge anywhere from $25-$50 or more just for nail maintenance and care. A person can do the same thing at home for much less money.
First, you will need nail polish, cuticle remover, nail polish remover, nail files, soap, water, and hand cream. To purchase these products you can expect to pay between $11-$13 for everything. In addition, you can elect to do your own nails or ask a family member or friend to do it for you.
Keeping up beauty and appearance does not have to cost you a fortune. You must be willing to take the time to do these things at home. Actually, you can purchase all the products required at a store like Wal-Mart or your local drug store.
It is wise to set aside a room where you will be doing your nails. A Kitchen, Dining Room, or bedroom would probably best the best places. Make sure you place some covering on the floor below your workspace in case you spill any polish or any of the other chemicals that you will be using. Nail Polish can stain and be extremely difficult to remove from fabric, rugs, and clothing.
For beautiful nails, it will require some filing, shaping, applying cuticle remover, and softening your hands and fingers with a sweet smelling hand cream or lotion. Try to choose a nail polish that isn’t too flashy. Light pinks, reds, and even clear polish are excellent choices for the summer months.
Total amount of time for nail treatment at home is about one hour. Just remember you did it yourself and you saved some money.
