TIME FOR A MANICURE
First, you should properly remove any old nail polish on your nails. Doing this will be much easier right after a shower as your cuticles and the old nail polish will become softer.
After softening your cuticles by taking a shower or soaking them in water, push them back with a wooden cuticle pusher. If you don’t have a wooden cuticle pusher, you can use the sharp tip of a nail file. However, you should ensure that the file tip is not too sharp and use it gently.
At this point, you can either apply a nourishing oil on the cuticles or go one step further and cut them with cuticle scissors. Cutting the cuticles will require them to be regularly cut in the future as well. You should be aware of this necessity before cutting them.
The next step is shaping the nails. Since there are many different trends in nail fashion, this can be a very difficult decision to make. In addition to oval and squared oval, which are trends of the past, you can also choose the almond, ballerina and stiletto trends. The point here is to choose a shape that is suitable for your nail type.
The last step involves buffing the surfaces of the nails with the soft side of a nail buffer and shining the nails with the other side of the buffer. This step will ensure for your nails to look glossier and smoother. Since nail polish prevents air from getting to the nails, it is possible for the nails to turn yellow and flake, particularly in constant nail polish use. This step can help you eliminate the flaking as well. If you are using a metal file, you should avoid filing the surface of the nail.
After finishing your manicure, don’t forget to moisturize your hands and nails with hand cream!
