3 reasons to have an at-home manicure

December 8, 2014

Nail technicians are taking their trade and their toolkits on the road more than ever in order to meet the needs of their busy clients. It’s no longer necessary to stop in at a salon for a treatment and some nail polish when your kitchen table can be turned into a nail spa. Here are some occasions that call for it.

1. You need to brighten up your day

Sometimes an unexpected turn of events makes getting out of the house a huge chore. If you’ve had an accident, injury, surgery or the like, you don’t have to mothball your beauty routine. Brighten one of your home-bound days with a home manicure. You just have to make an appointment and the manicurist will come with all she needs to make your fingers look fancy again. It’s a simple thing, but there’s nothing like having elegant hands to feel spoiled and upbeat despite your circumstances.

2. You feel like having a party

A home manicure isn’t just for people with reduced mobility. On the contrary, wouldn’t it be fun to get together with the girls and relax together while having your nails done at home? Here are some tips to help you make sure your manicure evening is a great success:

  • Before you make an appointment with a nail technician, make sure you can tell her exactly how many people will be present and what type of care the participants are expecting (hand massage, artificial nails or nail polish).
  • Do what you can to create a spa atmosphere in your home. Dim the lights, put on some relaxing music and light some candles. You might even offer plush slippers for your friends to wear, along with some comforting drinks and party snacks. Above all, you want your guests to enter a relaxing, inviting environment.
  • Consider offering a small, themed gift to your guests. A pretty nail file, cuticle cream or nail polish makes a nice finishing touch as your guests prepare to go home.

3. It’s your turn to be the bride

Your wedding day may be the most beautiful day of your life, but no doubt it will also be one of the most stressful. Treat yourself to a relaxing time before the ceremony by receiving a manicure at home or in your hotel room. This is your big day, why shouldn’t the beauty experts come to you?

Don’t forget to tip

Whatever the reason you decide to have a home manicure, be sure to tip your nail technician. By coming to your home she’s offering you some extra service. If you can, compensate her accordingly. Mobile manicurists are often self-employed and must cover their own travel expenses.
