Step-1: Clean, Clip, File, Buff
Remove the nail polish you’ve been wearing, clip your nails to the length you like, file & buff them properly.
Step-2: Soak, Scrub, Moisturize
Soak your nails for about 10 minutes to ready them for cuticle care and the next steps.
For the scrub, all you need to do is mix baking soda with water in 3/4th & 1/4th parts, rub this paste gently on your nails & cuticles for about 5 minutes, and then rinse with warm water.
Follow up with a skin-friendly cuticle oil & moisturizer/nail cream.
Step-3: Care for Cuticles
Once the cuticle oil works on them, your cuticles will be soft enough to push back into a nice shape. Go ahead and slather it with more moisturizer post this pushing process for healthy nails.
Step-4: Base Coat
The most fun part, also most important step before applying any nail polish on your nails.
Step-5: 2 Coats of Nail Paint
You can either apply a nail polish in regular fashion or use a sponge for an easy French Manicure at home.
Step-6: Top Coat for the Shine
Once you’re done with the 2 even coats nail polish application, the final step is to apply a top coat, which will help your nail paint to last longer.
