Tips and Tools for a Clean, Fresh and Beautiful Manicure!

Here's a few tips that has helped me get picture ready Nails and a Manicure that lasts for days.

※ A Cuticle pusher to gently push back your cuticles with. Best done after shower/bath/hand soak so that the skin is soft. (Have you tried rubbing them with sugar or a clean tootbrush?)
I like the stainless steel one. Easy to clean and keep clean!

※ Cotton pads to wipe your nails with acetone, nail polish remover or spirit prior to painting them. Makes your Manicure last longer. An other tip is to add Top Coat at least every other day.

※ An Orangewood stick can be used to wipe away polish from the cuticles and the sides of your nails and fingers. (To remove nail polish from the Orangewood stick I use a nail file and sand it down).
A cotton bud/cotton swab can also be used for clean up.

※ A small flat Brush dipped in Acetone/Nail Polish Remover is really helpfull to clean any polish residue you still have around your nails, that you did not get with the orangewood stick or cotton bud, to really get that crisp and clean finish.
(I started out with an artist brush for painting. Still use it for glitters and holographic polishes).

※ Use Cuticle cream or oil to nourish and moisturize your cuticles with. One of the reasons I like Burt's Bees Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream is because it smells Lemony Fresh. Don't forget hand cream!

That's a few steps to get you started!
