Master Your At-Home Mani

Give your nails some TLC with this step-by-step guide to an easy and quick at home manicure.

  1. It starts with a great base

Every great manicure starts with prepping your nails and creating the perfect base for a new trendy colour. First, remove any polish you have on currently and file nails into your selected shape. Then push back your cuticles and buff your nail bed to create an even, smooth canvas.

  1. Exfoliation is for hands too

To elevate your experience, use one of our Pure Sugar Scrubs (we would suggest this scrub for dry skin since it contains nourishing Cocoa and Coconut Oil) to gently exfoliate hands and remove any dead skin cells. Follow up with your favorite hand moisturizer and ensure to massage it into creases and knuckles. Finally, use a cotton pad dipped in nail polish remover to remove moisturizer from your nails.

  1. Keep nails strong

Now you’re ready to apply your base coat. Whether you used to have gel nails, have weaker nails or just want to keep your nails strong – we suggest using the Colour Riche Strengthening Peppermint base coat. It will not only strengthen your nail and make the perfect base for your polish but it also prevents any staining from nail colours.

  1. Pick a classic or trendy shade

No matter your style, there is a Colour Riche Oil-Infused Nail Polish for you. If you want a classic pink nude go with: “Nude Demoiselle” or “Dimanche Apres-Midi”. For a classic red try “Rouge Amour”. And finally, if you want something a little more colourful – we are all about vibrant pastels for spring. Our favourites include: “Pistache Royale”, “Eau de Rose”, “Bleu Jasmin” and “Violette Souffle”. The formula is 7-free (without Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, Xylene, parabens) and contains 4 precious oils (rose, cammelia, lotus, argan) which magnify the pigments to create vibrant colour depth and luxurious shine. Not to mention the professional-style paddle brush make a one-stroke application easy, and the diamond-cut wand prevents excess polish drip. It dries down to a delicate rose smell, making application a joy. You will also notice our polishes leave a lasting rose scent after it is applied!

  1. Make it last

After all that hard work, ensure your colour lasts by finishing off your manicure with our Gel Ultime top coat. It features the same brush you’ll love from the polish and a formula that will allow your polish to last up to two times longer.

Et voilà! Your at-home manicure is complete. For your next mani, explore our full range of Colour Riche Oil Nail Polish and treatments here.
