Healthy, naked nails win hands down.
It’s totally possible to take your nails back to basics and still look perfectly groomed. Substitute your usual high-maintenance manicure with a gentler approach, and regain your nail's natural seashell pink lustre.
2 Take it all off. Remove ALL polish with a good Acetone-free nail-polish remover.
3 In our book, all good detoxes start with a scrub. Use a gentle exfoliant to resurface rough, dry hands.
4 Clip, File, Push! Clip your longish nails to desired length, and then refine the shape with a triple-cut stainless steel nail file. Apply a few drops of cuticle remover, to soften them. Push your cuticles back, don’t cut them.
5 Buff, Please! We recommend a professional grade, 4-sided buffer.
6 Wash hands again. We like to use a good nailbrush to get all the grit out from under our nails.
7 Once your hands are good and dry, ensure that you’ve removed all traces of soap and oils, apply a thin layer of Base Coat and allow to dry (we recommend at least 5 minutes).
8 Maintain: To keep your newly perfected polish, we highly recommend a good hand cream
9 Cuticle Cure: Everyone’s cuticles get shaggy and dry if left unchecked. Keep yours looking healthy without cutting them with a nightly application of good cuticle oil. We keep one in our nightstand and another in our bag for on the go applications.
