Did you know that the nail industry rakes in a whopping $6 billion a year? No wonder, there are nail salons and spas sprouting everywhere. It’s no secret that spending anywhere from $20 to $50 on manicure (or pedicure) means that you’re shelling out hundreds or even thousands of dollars each year on something that could be done a lot more cheaply at home.
Sure, you deserve all the pampering that you need since you’ve been working so hard, but an at-home manicure doesn’t just save you money, it also saves you from potential dreadful health problems.
Although most manicures are without a hitch, infections and skin diseases are still possible. Some nail salons have poor standards in sanitation while some have insufficiently trained nail technicians. Others have both! These could mean bacterial infections for you. Instead of kicking back and relaxing, you’re actually putting your health at risk (very unlikely, but just another reason to do your own).
Manicure is surely one of the best pleasures in life. But with these risks, you’d probably want to do your own manicure at home. Not only would you get a bigger bang for your buck, you’ll also keep yourself safe.
Not to mention, it’s not that difficult to achieve a professional manicure at home. In the post below, you’ll see the 10 easy steps on how to clean and paint your nails like a pro. Photos are included, making it much easier for you to nail them. Each step also comes with various tips to ensure that you don’t get anything wrong.
You’re going to have lots of fun with your at-home manicure that you’ll probably convince your friends to do the same thing. Then, you can hold a manicure party and make it a weekly or monthly thing. Enjoy!
