One-Minute Mani

Don't have time or money for a manicure? Do it yourself using many ingredients you have on-hand! Kat Cosley, host of Deals, shares some homemade hand and nail treatment recipes.

If you have more time, do each treatment in order for the ultimate manicure!

Dried Roses
Whole or powdered milk
Tapioca pearls
Mix the amount of each ingredient you'd like and soak for 10-15 minutes in warm water

Makes 1 treatment

1/4 cup course brown sugar
Baby oil/Olive Oil to make into a paste

  • Mix together
  • Using a hand washing motion apply the mixture to the hands.
  • Continue the washing motion for a minute then rinse off with warm water and pat dry.

Alternate Uses Nail Tools
Lightly buff nails with a soft piece of flannel

Coffee stirrers/craft sticks are great for pushing back cuticles

Use a match book to file nails


1/2 tsp Shea Oil
1 tsp Almond Oil
1/2 tsp Vitamin E Oil
2 tbsp plain yogurt

Blend ingredients into a creamy lotion. Massage the mixture into your hands and cover then with cotton gloves before bed. In the morning remove gloves and wash your hands with a mild soap and massage in some hand cream. Makes 2oz, enough for 1 treatment

Green tomatoes and Lemons can remove Yellow stains from hands.
Cut Lemon/tomato in half and rub the juice all over your hands or squeeze the juice and soak in the juice.
Leave on for 5 minutes and rinse well with warm water.

Lemons are a natural astringent and disinfectant that will leave your hands fresh, fragrant with naturally cleaner looking nails.
