Polish Up Your Act! A Guide to the Perfect Mani.

Creating a salon-perfect manicure at home is a cinch with our foolproof guide:

File: Remove old nail polish and file nails to a uniform length and shape. Just remember – to avoid weakening the nail, only file in one direction.

Push: Tidy up your cuticles by massaging in Cuticle Quencher and gently pushing them back with an orange stick.

Prime: Apply Base Coat and let it dry for 30 seconds. This will act as an adhesive for the polish and improve its wear.

Polish: Apply nail polish in three strokes – one up the centre and one either side. To prevent chipping, begin at the base of your nail and bring the brush over and under the tip of your nails. Wait a few minutes before applying a second coat.

Finish: For added shine and protection, apply a Top Coat. To further extend the life of your manicure, re-apply every second day.
