Firstly, remove previously Applied Nail Polish:


Try to remove your nail polish with some non-acetone based nail polish remover. If not possible, try making less contact with the skin. Don’t soak your nails in the spirit.
 
Shaping Nails:


Clip the nails, if necessary and try to cut in one way. Don’t make zig-zag cuts on the nails.

Filing The Nails:


Once done with the shaping,  it’s time to gently file them into a desired shape. Keeping pace with the trend, a slightly rounded nail shape and the square-rounded edge are the in-thing. No, this is not for the dominant men! Being in the perfect shape is women’s forte!
 
Soaking your Hands:

Applying Cuticle Remover:

It’s advised to apply a bit of cuticle remover while cutting away the thickened skin around the nails. Don’t let it stay for a longer period though!
 
Removing Excess Cuticle Around The Nails:


Use a cuticle pushing tool to push the cuticle backwards. Make sure you push the cuticles gently and DO NOT pull, lift, tear, rip, force, or cut into the cuticle in any way.
 

Moisturizing:


Massage your hands and nails with a rich cream to moisturize them. You can also use silky oil all over the hands to hydrate and replenish the skin.
 
Removing Excess Moisture From the Nails:


Use a cotton swab to remove the moisture left on the nails. Moisture can be a hindrance in proper application of the nail enamel.
 
Always Paint Nails in Layers:


After applying a proper base coat apply the nail enamel in different layers finally finishing with a gloss. This will protect the nails from staining and will also give the a lustrous and even shade.
