Clean and Prep your nails
The first step is to get your nails free of old polish and ready for a shiny new colour. To get this done use a cotton bud and nail polish remover. Repeat this step a few more times to remove any excess nail polish. When your nails are polish-free, wash your hands with soap and water or use a sanitized hot towel.
Trim, File and Buff
The next step is to give your nails a trim using a nail cutter to cut your nails to a desired and ideal length if too long or file down properly with a nail file. Once you have achieved your desired length, file them to shape and use a buffer to refine the edges and make them smooth. Before moving to the next stage, properly clean your nails to avoid particles during application.
Prep your cuticles
All you need in this step is a cuticle trimmer and Vane almond cuticle oil. Apply a drop of Vane almond cuticle oil to every nail and use a cuticle trimmer to push and also remove excess cuticle. The cuticle oil will nourish your cuticle and hydrate your nail bed. When your cuticles are properly taken care of your manicure automatically looks fantastic and neatly groomed.
Treat and strengthen your nails
This helps you replenish your nails from any strains your nails have undergone. Apply one coat of the Vane Nail Strengthener to every nail and allow to dry properly before moving to the next step.
After you’ve trimmed, and strengthened your nails, hydrate your hands with a moisturizer focusing on dry areas. Once absorbed, wipe your nails with a polish remover to clean the beds for the time we have been waiting for, colour application.
Nail Polish Application
- Apply one coat of the Vane base coat to your nails. What this does is anchor the nail colour to your nails to prevent chipping and also prevent your nails from getting colour stained.
- Apply one to two thin coats of your desired Vane polish colour. Two coat application sometimes depends on your colour of choice. Some colours require just one shade. Once you get your desired fun look you will sure know.
Top Coat Finish Up
The finishing touches. The Vane top coat protects your nails and gives it that final shine that you manicure need. With our variation of top coats you get to choose what final look you want your manicure to have. Either a gel like finish, a matte velvet look or a high glossy shine.
