Expert tips for a perfect DIY mani and pedi

We might not be spending as much at the salon these days, it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy flawless nails. Beauty guru Jade Kisnorbo explains how.

No doubt, 2023 is testing pretty most of us financially.

With interest rates up and the cost of living rising faster than cupcakes disappear in the office, many of us are having to cut back on our fave beauty treatments.

But celebrity hair and make-up artist (and mani and pedi expert) Jade Kisnorbo says there’s an easy way to achieve flawless nails at home and pamper yourself like a pro.

Here are her steps to salon-like perfection:

Create a clean canvas

To start your DIY mani-pedi journey, you’ll need a fresh canvas.

“Begin by gently removing any old nail polish, allowing your nails to breathe and remain healthy,” Jade says.

The beauty specialist, a seasoned nail expert, recommends using a non-acetone nail polish remover to protect your nails from unnecessary damage.

Take time to moisturise

Next, provide your hands and feet with some much-needed hydration.

“Moisturising your cuticles and the skin around your nails will not only improve their appearance but also fortifies them against potential damage,” Jade explains.

“A rich, nourishing hand cream and a hydrating foot lotion will work wonders in preparing your nails for the ultimate transformation.”

Shape, file, buff and shine

Now to Jade’s secret game-changer, Finishing Touch Flawless Salon Nails, an all-in-one tool designed to cater to every aspect of your nail care needs.

“With six professional-grade nail care heads, you can smooth unsightly ridges, shape and file your nails effortlessly, and rejuvenate damaged nails,” Jade says.

“Remember to always file in one direction, avoiding back and forth motions, to prevent splitting and weakening.”

The make-up guru says the grinding and smoothing function of the Flawless tool helps with any imperfections, including taking off gel residue.

“You can even clean up your cuticles and buff and shine to a high gloss, so that you have a flawless canvas for your polish or nails that look stunning on their own,” Jade says.

Soft, smooth and sole-fully yours

When it comes to the feet, Finishing Touch Flawless Salon Pedi is also a saviour, says Jade.

“This cool little tool gently and painlessly removes unsightly calluses, cracked dry skin, and rough patches, leaving your feet soft and smooth to the touch,” she says.

“Regular exfoliation is the key to maintaining smooth feet, so be consistent, and you’ll notice a real difference.

“With the Finishing Touch Flawless Salon Pedi tool, exfoliating your feet becomes a breeze and you’ll see long-lasting results with minimal effort.”

Enjoy well-groomed nails and feet from home

With the power of these expertly designed tools, the perfect mani-pedi is within reach of us all.

“It’s all about beauty meeting convenience and shows that budget-friendly indulgence can be the new norm,” Jade says.
