The Perfect CBD Manicure at Home
Step 1 – Preparation is Key!
Here’s a handy list below of all of the things we think you need to have the best CBD manicure at home ever!
Pop over to Amazon.com and treat yourself to a gorgeous new bag where all of your manicure tools can live from now on.
- Remover and a handful of cotton balls
- Clippers – make sure they’re not blunt or rusty!
- Nail file (we love glass ones)
- Nail buffer
- Cuticle pusher tool
- Hand & skin moisturizer
- Clear basecoat polish
- Nail polish
- Clear topcoat
- Small bowl to soak your nails in before you begin and a soap you love, as well as essential oils too.
- CBD Sugar Scrub
- CBD Oil
Step 2: Out With The Old!
Grab your favorite bottle of gentle or strong nail polish remover and get rid of any old, crusty nail polish you may still have.
We’ve all been there, so don’t worry – just get it gone and you can move on to the next step!
Step 3: Warm Soapy Water
Grab a little glass bowl that you can comfortably dip your nails into and fill it with nice, warm (or hot) soapy water.
You can use body wash and a few drops of essential oils like lavender or peppermint depending on your mood.
Let each hand stay in the water for 3-5 minutes so that your nails and skin are soft, cleansed, and ready for the next step.
Step 4: Stay In Shape!
Clip your nails just a little bit if you need to, and then start shaping them up using your nail file.
Slightly rounded nail shapes are pretty popular, but do your thing and make your nails shaped the way you like!
You can then use your buffer to smooth the tops and sides of your nails. You can also buff the top of your nail bed just a little – but not too much or the nail polish won’t stick!
Step 5: Scrub A Dub!
Ahh … the relaxing part. Scrub your hands, cuticles, wrists, and palms gently with CBD Sugar Scrub!
This helps to exfoliate any dry, dead skin and leaves it feeling soft and supple.
After this step, you can also soak hand towels in hot water, ring them out, and wrap your hands in them for a few minutes.
Step 6: Cuticle Care
With a proper and professional cuticle pusher, gently push your cuticles back toward your knuckles. Don’t push hard, or too far, just gently.
You can use a few drops of CBD Oil now, to soothe any irritation that may show up once you’ve completed this step.
CBD has been known to provide moisture, reduce inflammation and clear up excema and many other skin irritabilities.
You won’t get high at all, from applying a quality broad-spectrum CBD oil to your nails or hands.
Step 7: Cutting Cuticles Carefully
This is a delicate step. Be careful NOT to pull, lift, tear,or cut into the cuticle in any way.
Just gently nip off the free edge with a pair of metal cuticle nippers.
It’s better to be cautious than to overdo it because the cuticle helps protect the nail bed from all sorts of problems.
Now’s also the time to also remove those pesky and sore hangnails around the sides of the nail, but be super careful, just nip them off, and don’t dig down deep into the nail bed.
Step 8: Moisturize Me!
Massage CBD Skin Moisturizer all over your hands, or any other moisturizer you love and gently use acupressure in the centre of your palm, and around any trouble areas for immediate stress-release.
Don’t put any cream on your nails. This will cause them to become slippery, and you won’t be able to apply polish properly.
Step 9: Prep for Polish.
In case you happened to get a little skin cream on your nails, use a gentle nail polish remover and make sure there is absolutely NOTHING left on your nails!
This is the most important part!
Step 10: Time To Paint!
If you have weak or brittle nails, use a base coat nail polish.
A base coat also protects nails from staining and prevents chipping.
Next, apply your nail polish in layers, allowing each layer to dry between coats. Give it 10 minutes per hand and here’s the best part: Do nothing!
Relax, shop online, watch a show, but do not touch a thing!
We are loving Dope Nailz nail polish colours.
Feeling a little dark and mysterious? Northern Lights will look so dope on your nails!
If you feel fun and flirty, there’s always Pink Death Star or Pink Starburst!
Two coats of whatever color polish you choose, followed by a clear top coat to add gloss should do the trick.
And now you’ve successfully completed and enjoyed how to give yourself a CBD manicure at home!
Take a few minutes to touch up your manicure every other day with a single layer of topcoat.
