Here's a simple technique on how to do a mini manicure. First you wash your hands. After you dry them, eliminate any nail polish that you may have with a nail polish remover. Get oil and sugar and mix them in a bowl. If you like, you can add essential oil. Put it aside and file your nails to a desired shape. Then you can get the sugar and oil mix and scrub it on your hands. Wash it out with water with no soap. Then dry your hands.

Submerge your hands in warm water for about five minutes. Now push your cuticles with an orange wood stick. Gently apply some oil or cream to the nail and massage the cuticles, just like this. Get a towel, wet it, and put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Make sure the towel gets warm. Then take the towel and wrap it around your hands. Leave it for about 1 to 2 minutes. If you're not applying polish you are done.

If you are applying nail polish then apply your base coat and wait 2 minutes. You finish the manicure by applying your favorite nail polish.

And this is how you pamper yourself with a mini manicure at home.

I'm going RIGHT NOW to give myself a manicure and then use my clarisonic on my face!. Why don't I do this more often???

Ooooh....this sounds wonderfully relaxing. Even for the short time it takes. I bet this is also awesome on your feet! I'm never without a clear nail polish because it makes my nails look more "done" and well-groomed in a flash. I'm in love with Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails in Nude. It's a clear strengthener with a soft, nude/beige tint that leaves my nails looking like they have a French Manicure. And it dries in less than five minutes! I'm always being complimented on my nails, even with just one coat of this stuff. I also put hydrogen peroxide in my manicure baths to whiten the tips of my nails - a tip I found helpful in Allure magazine. I might just go do this manicure right now!
