The American Manicure

American manicures at a nail salon or at home

What makes a manicure American? With delicate tones and light colors the American Manicure give nails a natural, soft look. Differing from the French Manicure, the American Manicure has the white tip of the nail coated first with the neutral tone painted over the whole nail. This manicure can be performed at home or in a salon and spa. The American Manicure is also easy to fix if you had a manicure or chips need to be re-coated.

Buying a professional American Manicure more often include a hand massage, cuticle care, and other nail care services to preserve the quality of the nails and hands.

An American Manicure can be performed at home by purchasing an American Manicure kit. You can buy it at your local drug store or beauty salon. In place of an American Manicure kit, you can buy an opaque or light color of nail polish and a neutral pink tone. For best results cuticle cutters, a high-quality emery board, and deep moisturizing oil will give the at-home manicure a look of professional quality.

Once the nails have soaked in warm water and the nails are free from any polish it can be filed and shaped into the preferred look. Once the nails are all set for painting a base coat will prep the nails to maintain the top coat of color for a longer time. After the base coat is done, a stencil or similar tool can be used as a frame to help outline the opaque white or light color of nail polish for defining the tip. Once the nail tips are done the layer of pale pink or neutral tone nail polish is applied to give the tips a soft, natural look. To complete the manicure and maintain the nail polish intact a top coat of clear nail polish is recommended to also strengthen the nails. After the old polish is removed and before new coats are applied professional salons and spas will give hand massage with moisturizing cream. Nevertheless, the fact is American Manicure give nails a stunning, stylish look that will never go out of style.
