At Home Manicure, Professional Result
Step 1: Prep your nails. Remove existing nail lacquer then trim and shape nails by filing in one direction only to prevent breakage. Apply cuticle oil, push back cuticles and remove hangnails.
Step 2: Apply base coat to increase lacquer adhesion and prevent discoloration.
Step 3: Apply two coats of Nail Lacquer, using three strokes for each coat. Apply the first down the middle and then one on each side for complete coverage.
Step 4: Apply top coat over the nail. Don’t forget to cap the nail’s free edge to keep color from chipping.
Daily Nail and Hand Routine
To keep hands looking youthful and manicure-ready at a moment’s notice, nail care is key. Push back cuticles and apply cuticle oil daily to help condition and soften cuticles. Take care to cut only hanging skin as needed. Wash hands with a non-drying soap and regularly apply an ultra-hydrating lotion to keep hands from looking ashy or dry.
