Which nail polish colour will you choose?

  1. Schedule at least one hour for the whole manicure process and another hour for drying. Prepare necessary tools: a few washable pads, a nail polish remover, a wooden stick, a nail olive, a nail file, a nail polisher, a nail conditioner and a fancy lacquer.
  2. Remove the old nail polish remains with an acetone-free remover.
  3. Apply some nail olive onto your cuticles. Leave it for a while until they get soft and get rid of the unwanted cuticles with a wooden stick. Be gentle.
  4. Get the right nail shape with a nail file (have you tried a glass one?). Short rounded are on-trend as well as vampy pointy nails.
  5. Use a nail polisher but remember not to do it more than once in a week.
  6. Remove nail olive with a remover, wash your hands with a soap and make sure your hands are dry.
  7. Apply a thin coat of nail conditioner. Wait until dry.
  8. Apply a first (thin) coat of a nail polish, remember to do it thoroughly. Wait. Apply a second one, this time using some more nail polish.
  9. Use a nail dryer while on a rush or a cold cold water.
  10. Now relax on a couch, watch a telly or do anything you like as long as it doesn’t involve your hands.
  11. Voila! Your manicure is ready!
