6 ESSENTIAL STEPS FOR ELEGANT NAILS

GUIDE TO PERFECT HANDS

  1. CLEAN NAILS AND REMOVE POLISH:
  • Use acetone or a nail polish remover to remove any remaining nail polish.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water, and use a soft brush to clean under your nails and in corners.
  1. HYDRATION:
  • Apply a moisturizer or oil to the cuticle area and entire hand to nourish the skin.
  • Let the skin hydrate and absorb the product well for about 10 minutes.
  1. REMOVE OR ELIMINATE CUTTICLES:
  • If you have healthy cuticles and they don't bother you aesthetically, just gently push them back with an orange stick.
  • If you want to remove cuticles, choose the tool that is most comfortable for you: a cuticle remover, scissors or a cuticle nipper.
  • Before cutting them, be sure to pull them back to remove them from the nail.
  • Be careful when cutting excess skin from the cuticles so as not to injure yourself.
  1. CUT, FILE AND PREPARE:
  • Decide on the desired shape and length for your nails.
  • Cut your nails with scissors or nail clippers, leaving them about 1 millimeter longer than you want.
  • Use a suitable file to shape your nails, taking into account the different shapes available (oval, almond, square, etc.).
  • You can use thick cardboard or sponge files, as they are safer for natural nails.
  • Use buffer files to smooth, polish and shine your nails, preparing them for polishing.
  1. MOISTURIZING CUTICLE OIL:
  • After painting your nails, apply hydrating oil to and around the cuticle area to rehydrate the skin.
  • Argan or rosehip oil are good options.
  1. HANDCREAM:
  • Finish by applying a moisturizing hand cream to keep them soft and cared for.
  • You can use an argan hand cream for daily care and a urea moisturizer for intensive hydration.

Remember to follow these steps regularly to keep your hands and nails in good condition and have an impeccable manicure.
