Here’s how to prep your nails for your mani at home
Regardless of the type of nail you want to create, if you don’t prepare, you won’t be happy with the result.


Remove old nail polish: Preparing your nails is the first step in any manicure. Start by removing old nail polish, natural oils and a good nail clean with some pure acetone.

  • Push back your cuticles: Dip your nails in warm water to soften the area, then gently push back your cuticles with a cuticle pusher. (Avoid using cuticle nippers or cuticle removers as you may injure yourself. Save these for the professionals).
  • Trim your nails: Trim your natural nails to an appropriate length. Not too short and not too long.
  • File your nails: File your nails so that they are even and have no snags.
  • Polish Your Nails: When applying nails, you’ll want to use a nail buffer on each nail bed to give your acrylic tips, press-on nails, etc. some grip.

Now that your nails are prepared, you need to decide on the type of nails, nail art, etc. And don’t worry, MelodySusie is here to help you with all things nails. You are my go-to for nails!

Press-on nails, the must-try nail trend
As artificial nails, press-on nails are the superstar of the nail industry. Not only are they fashionable and beautiful, but press-on nails also won’t damage your real fingernails like gel nail polish or acrylic nails when they come off.


Press-on nails are very easy to install. They also come in so many shapes, lengths and nail designs that there’s bound to be a nail set (or sets) to suit your needs!

Who Buys Press On Nails?
All! Thanks to the rise of intricate nail art and “nailfluencers” on Instagram! Pressure nail brands are growing in popularity. They’re not just found in drugstores; everyone is looking for them.

The look of press-on nails has changed as opposed to the nails worn years ago which were hard and kept chipping. Today’s press-on nails are thinner, more flexible and more comfortable to wear. From simple French manicures to animal prints, solid hues to funky, these designs are “more in the moment.”

The best gel polish for nails at home
MelodySusie gel nail polish is high quality and suitable for those who want a gel manicure at home. There is a whole set that I like that comes with 24 colors of gel. The gel polish colors are made from non-toxic ingredients, which makes them safe for nails and low odor.

The gel lasts a long time, hardly chips and I click around on the computer all day. Applying gel polish is easy. However, it needs to be cured under an LED nail lamp for about 90-120 seconds.

Nail Art Lamp
Use a professional nail lamp to harden your gel nails as they do not dry on their own. I recommend choosing a UV nail lamp like this MelodySusie 2-in-1 UV Nail Lamp if you want the best possible curing effect.

This nail lamp with LED lighting makes the gel manicure process at home much easier, especially for beginners because it is more flexible and can hold nails to dry.

It also has a fast 60-second cure with high power, low heat and no damage, so your gel nails dry quickly and efficiently.
