Perfecting your at home Manicure (and peticure) -From the Beauty Bible by Paula Begoun

1. Remove any previously applied polish

2. Gently file nails into the shape you want

3. Soak nails in plain warm water for no more than 3 minutes
4. Trim the cuticle and avoid pushing it back as much as possible
5. Trim the nails carefully using sharp mani scissors or nail clippers
6. Moisturize the cuticle with a cuticle oil
Cuticle Oil+
7. Remove the oil before painting nails
8. Apply a basecoat

11. After the two coats are completely dry apply a topcoat

12. Touch up polish every other day with a layer of top coat to make it last longer
