How to Do an At-Home Manicure

The Manicure Bible: How to Ace a Manicure at Home

Tom Bachik knows nails. He designs looks for Jennifer Lopez and Victoria Beckham, he is L'Oreal Paris's brand ambassador, and he has over 64,000 Instagram followers. People look to him as a manicure mensa.

Working with Tom over the years, I've gotten to know his fun personality and learned so many great tricks that I figured, "why not share the wealth?" We sat down after a nail art shoot to discuss the dos and don'ts of at-home manicures, and thus The Manicure Bible was born.

So does buffing your nails matter? What's the deal with file grit? And how can you ensure streak-free polish application? Tom shares the tricks he uses on Zooey Deschanel and Heidi Klum, all in the name of the perfect set of nails.
