Ready The Weapons:

Before stepping into the nail world ready all your supplies and keep them handy. The essential products needed will be cuticle softening cream, hand cream, cuticle pusher, nails files, three essential nail polishes- the base coat, the color and the top coat, nail buffers and a nail cutter. You will also require some cotton ball and q-tips.


Set the work place, a towel or a soft cardboard to get a firm base, using nail polish remover, remove your previous nail coatings properly. Use a hand wash and cream to soften the nails. Use one of the q tips to reach to the nooks and crannies of the nails to eradicate the previous color coat. If you have acrylic or add on nails make sure the nail spirit does not loosen the glue on the add on nails.

Snipping And Setting:

Start by cutting the nails into a formidable shape. the sexiest manicure can only be approached if your nails are not too long and not too short, just a formidable length. Also the best shape is not the proper oval or the square. The ‘squoval’ should be the target. Start by snipping the nails and then use the nail filer to get the required shape. as for the top part, mirror your nail bed base and continue. One of the best tip to filing nail is to lightly use the filer on your nails rather than forcefully using it. Also pivot your hand at angles which match the stroke. Instead of using the nail tip to file, use the filer on the underneath of the nail tip. This way nail scraping or chipping whilst can be prevented.

Buff It Up:

The next step requires you to use nail buffers and also a buffing powder.  For the buffing, use a stick buffer or pad style buffer, one which you can get a proper grip now. Using the buffing powder, buff up the surface to get rid of unevenness or dullness; Never over do the buffing however since thinning the nails will make it brittle.

Soak And Clean:

A Luke warm bowl of water and some lemons might be needed. For this, fill a small bowl enough to fit your nails in both cases for hands and toes. For toes you may need a bigger bowl to dip in the feet. Squeeze in lemon or lime and add a bit of liquid hand wash. Lather up if you wish. Soak the nails for a little while. The lemon and the soap along with the warm water loosens the dirt and dead skins from the nails. The lemon also acts a brightening agent to fade away certain spots if present on the nail top.

Cuticle Cure:

We all know how a perfect nail can be destroyed by a nasty cuticle at the other end glaring at you and therefore pat those hands dry and at once set on the cuticle cure. you will get cuticle creams in your nearby drug store. Apply the cram on the nail and nail beds and then use a cuticle pusher to gently push back the cuticles. Do not use undue force. The orange stick or cuticle pusher only needs a gentle effort so don’t overdo it.

The Process Ending:

Now since all the essentials are done with, you need to use the hand cream and lotion to smoothen the hands or feet along with the nail. Use any hand cream so that the nails now can get a little moisture and feel supple. Let the cream soak in for a little while.

Paint The Town Red:

Now comes the fun part, the nail colors. For this, start with a base coat which is usually transparent or skin tone color so that the top color is not manipulated. Once that dries, use the color you want, red green blue yellow. Then use a transparent sheer gloss top coat to seal in the color and protect the nail from chipping away.

And voila, you are done with your nails.
