With all the crazy and colorful nail designs for summertime, it can take a toll on our nails health. Giving yourself a manicure removes dead skin cells and calluses growing in your nails. Here is a little DIY manicure before you add that pop of color.


  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 hand towel
  • 1 medium bowl


  1. Cut the lemon in half.
  2. Squeeze one half of the lemon and 1 cup of warm water into the medium size bowl.
  3. Soak your finger tips for 5 minutes.
  4. Rinse and pat dry, pushing back your cuticles.
  5. With your squeezed lemon, rub the lemon peel against your nail back and forth.
  6. Finish by buffing with a soft cloth.
  7. Then you are set to apply your nail polish.
