  1. Soak a cotton ball with nail polish remover and remove any polish you have remaining on your fingernails.
  2. Take a bowl of sudsy water and soak your fingers for 4-5 minutes
  3. When finished, dry your hands with a washcloth and then use the washcloth to push back your cuticles. You want to make sure you push back your cuticles, so your nails have an even appearance.
  4. Clip and file your nails to the length you prefer. Make sure there are no jagged edges so that you don’t cut yourself on accident.  DO NOT BUFF YOUR NAILS OFTEN this will cause them to become flimsy and weak.
  5. Soak your hand in lemon juice for 3 minutes to get healthier looking nails. The minerals in lemon juice help your nails and get rid of any yellow in them.

  7. Wash and dry your hands.
