How to use professional nail kits at home if you are a novice

If you love to have nice nails, you are probably one of the millions of women in the United States that has fake nails applied to your own nails at least once a month.

If you are, you may also be one of the women who has decided to do their own nails instead of paying for them being done at a salon. Especially as prices keep rising.

Learning how to do your own nails at home using professional nail kits, like Kit de uñas de porcelana, can be a little tricky. A professional manicurist often has months of training to be able to use all the different kinds of kits out there, and you probably do not have the time or money to be able to do that.

There are several ways you can learn how to use professional nail kits at home that do not cost any money. You just have to know where to look for them.


YouTube videos — As YouTube has become increasingly popular over the last few years, more and more professional manicurists have recorded videos of themselves applying fake nails and then uploaded them to the video site.

This now means you can often watch an entire series of video on how to use professional nail kits at home without having to spend any money at all.

To find the videos that may help you, do a search on YouTube for the keywords ‘professional nail kits’ also adding the words that describe the type of nail kits you wish to use. You should then find hundreds of course you can watch for step-by-step instructions.

Free video courses with nail kit purchases — Along with finding out how to use professional nail kits at home, you will also want to know where to buy them for an affordable price.

Thankfully, there is a way to do both things at once. If you look online for European nail salons selling professional nail kits, that is.

This is because several Spanish and Portuguese nail salons not only sell kits for a much cheaper price than you will be able to find in the United States, they also offer free video nail courses with each purchase.

These nail courses are available on their websites and are recorded by professional nail manicurists that have been in the nail business for years. If you really want to learn how to have professional looking nails by using professional nail kits at home, then these are the videos you should watch.

To get access to them, simply buy the professional nail kits you wish to use and then wait for the access code to the videos to be emailed to you. Once you receive it, you can watch the courses again and again until you feel comfortable doing your own nails.


Practicing fake nail applications — No matter how many video courses you watch, however, you will only learn how to use professional nail kits at home correctly by using them. Again and again and again.

After all, practice will make sure your skills at fake nail application improve quickly and soon your nails will look as if you had them done at a salon.
