Exfoliate your Hands
Before soaking the hands we will apply the pack to the hands. To remove the dead cells, dead cell exfoliator i.e., the cream that removes the dead cells can be used. If you don’t have it, just powder the sugar. Apply any one oil like coconut oil, gingerly oil, castor oil, olive oil or almond oil. While there is oil in the hands apply and rub the powdered sugar on that and give circular movements and then wash with cold water.

Remove your Existing Nail Polish
First, remove the existing nail polish with a nail polish remover. Acetone based nail polish remover will work instantly. But if you use it frequently, it will damage the cuticles and around the nail skin. When removing with a non-acetone based nail polish remover, nail polish does not dry out around the cuticles and skin. So you can use it more often.
Shape your Nails

Even if we trim the sides of the nail, we should not cut them narrow. After that, shape them with the pile which is found in the nail cutter.
Soak your Hands

Soak the finger edges, i.e., soak the entire nails in a bowl of water mixed with liquid soap for 5 minutes. By doing this, we can remove the particles on the sides of the fingers. It will give the softness and glow to the hand. After a soak, you can push your cuticles back with a cuticle pusher. If excess cuticles there, don’t cut too much. It does not help your nails appear longer.
Scrub Your HandsThen scrub the nails and the fingers with the baby brush. Wash the entire hand rubbing with the brush, especially the palm. So that the dead cells are removed. Then wash it and wipe off the wetness. After this, apply lotion and massage them on the fingers with pressure. Then wipe the hands and apply nail polish. If your nail polish stays last longer, apply a base coat first and then add 2 coats your favorite nail polish.
