Do you want to display perfect and neat nails, but don’t find the time or the budget to go regularly to the beautician? Follow the advice from Maryton, step by step, for a successful professional manicure!
To achieve a perfect manicure, you need the following:
• A nail file
• A wooden stick
• A buffing block
• A varnish base
• The varnish of your choice
• A “top coat”
Here’s how to do it step by step:
1. Nail cleaning
To “remove makeup” from your nails, clean them with a makeup remover soaked in solvent, whether they are already varnished or not.
Use a nail file to shorten your nails and give them a shape: rounded, square or almond. Avoiding back and forth movements.
3. Cuticle Care
To soften the contour of the nails, soak your fingers in a bowl of water for a few minutes. Using a wooden stick to push back the skin covering the nail.
The nails must be polished with a buffing block in order to present a very smooth surface and thus allow the varnish to adhere easily.
5. Applying the varnish
First, apply a protective varnish base as the first coat to protect your nails. Then apply a fairly thin coat of varnish and let it dry for about 10 minutes. Apply a second coat of color to add opacity and intensify the color. The last step is to apply a “top coat”, that is to say a layer used to bring shine to your manicure.
To provide perfect and complete care for your nails, the professional manicure kit meets all the expectations of a professional manicure: modelling, filing and polishing as in an institute.
