This is part one of a two part series. Here is a photo guide of what I do when I don't want to pay a salon to remove my shellac.
-acetone nail polish remover
- jar or glass
Step 1: Soak your nails in the remover for about 5 - 10 minutes, using the jar.
Step 2: Wipe of majority of shellac.
Step 3: File off any stubborn bits of shellac. You must only get the shellac, and not your bare nail, or will will weaken them.
Step 4: Buff nails.
Step 5: Apply cuticle oil.
Step 6: Push cuticles back, gently.
Step 7: Apply hand cream. Let this and the cuticle oil fully absorb before continuing onto step 8.
Step 8: Apply base coat.
Step 9: Paint your nails!
Tomorrow I will post a guide to the nail art seen in the very top photo. See you then :)
