We have all seen this little bottle at the stores! I decided to buy it because I have the worst cuticles, they're always dry!
Here are a few steps I take for a Semi-Mani Finish!
First I make sure all nail polish has been removed,
I apply a thin coat of the Instant Cuticle Remover on my Cuticles, I let them soak for about 30 sec, and with a manicure stick or a cuticle remover tool push back on your cuticles, at this point your cuticles should be completely soft and easy to remove. ( sometimes I misplace them and I end up using a bobby pin lol, works the same) Wash your hands and dry them.
File them as you want, ( if you need to trim them down, do it now) I always file my nails on top, just to give them a little rough texture.
Third Step: I'm using Mary Kay Satin Hands Scrub.
Apply it to a Hand Brush and brush your fingernails down, massaging gently. You can scrub down all your hand to give and extra soft feeling.
This product is awesome! It smells great and your hands feel super soft after!
Apply your base coat!
I'm using Essie Base Coat!
Fifth Step: Wait until your base is dry and apply your color!
I'm using Wet n Wild, Sunny side Up! Only .98 cents at Meijer!
Wait until dry and clean all the mess with a Q-tip! Apply your favorite lotion, and you should be all set!
Hopefully you enjoyed my little Quick Mani!
