What you will need:

  • A clean small towel to spread on the table
  • A bowl of clean warm water
  • Cuticle softener
  • Metal cuticle pusher
  • Cuticle nipper
  • Nail brush
  • Nail buffer
  • Nail file
  • Hand lotion
  • Acetone
  • Cotton pads
  • Base Coat
  • Nail Polish
  • Top Coat
  • Cuticle oil

First soak your nails in warm water for 3 minutes, then pat them dry. Apply cuticle softener on your nails then wait another couple of minutes. Then, using a cuticle pusher, push back your cuticles. Brush ur nails with water then dry them. Using a nipper cut off any excess skin or cuticles. Brush your nails again. Buff your nails using a nail buffer then shape them to suit you. Then moisturize your hands and nails. Remove any excess grease from your nails using acetone. Apply a very thin coat of base polish and wait for it to dry slightly. Paint your nails with two thin coats of nailpolish; you must wait a couple of minutes between each application to get a solid perfect color. Apply top coat and wait 20 minutes for your nails to dry completely. Finally, apply cuticle oil so that your nails don’t look dry. Enjoy!
