Step 1: thoroughly rinse the paint coating

Start should by thoroughly washing away the residue of old varnish. If the nails are not painted, skip this step.

Step 2: sawing

After cleaning start sawing. Remember that the nail is always straight, in order to avoid its growth. If there is no problem, you can trim them with clippers and then shape them with a sawtooth. After polishing the nails with a special polisher.

Step 3: Heel care

Before you start caring for your heels need to soften the skin. To do this, you need to soak your feet for a few minutes in warm water with soap, olives, sea salt or use a special preparation designed to soften (e.g., the popular softener foam). Then rinse from any cosmetic residue, wiping with a towel.

Treat very callous areas with a sharp foot grater. For smoothing, use another grater, more tender and apply gentle peeling. Massage for a few minutes, then rinse with warm water and dry.

In the professional pedicure salon there is a milling machine. This device is used to wipe the calloused epidermis. After machining on this machine the legs are perfectly smooth and clean.

However, inadequate use of the milling machine at home can lead to severe skin damage and even wounds. Being too diligent in this case is not recommended.

Step 4: trim the cuticle

grease the cuticle with liquid or softening oil. After a while, trim the cuticle with a wooden stick (orange), not too deep so as not to damage the skin and nail plate. After its removal, grease the nails with olive oil.

Step 5: paint your nails

Before you start painting your nails, make the job comfortable. Place a special divider between your fingers so the skin doesn’t come into contact with the painted nail. Then wipe your nails with a polish remover to skim the nail plate.

Paint them with the base and after a while apply the first layer of varnish.
