How to do your own Mani Pedis for just a dollar! Great for gifts or just something fun to do. Doesn’t require much or break the budget and looks just like the professionals!

You Will Need...

  • White nail polish
  • Clear nail Polish
  • Pointy edge such as toothpick or hairpin
  • Nail polish remover
  • Cotton balls/tissues/tp

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 1

    You can find white nail polish at any dollar store. I got mine from Dollar Tree (L.A. Colors). Using the white nailpolish, go over the white part of your nail, making a smooth line. It helps not to use too much. Clean up any blemishes with the bobby pin/toothpick/ etc.

  • Step 2

    Wait for it to dry. Once dry, go over the entire nail with clear nailpolish. I found that this brings out the pink in my nail.
    I used Sally Hanson’s Hardener. It works really well, but it is more expensive than just dollar polish.

    **Also, i’m not sure but I believe you can buy the Hardener tinted pink.

  • Step 3

    Lastly, wait for it to dry and clean up any nailpolish that got on your skin. Taking a shower helps remove this.
