1.Just like every artistic work either makeup or painting, you have to start on a clean slate so it is advisable to clean the surface of your nails to remove any impurities. If you have had a previous nail color you will need to clean it out with your cotton wool dipped in your nail polish cleanser/remover.

2.You will also need to file your nail into a desired shape,mostly round since they are short and make the edges look round and neat.

3. Next, Place your hands in a bowl filled with warm water and skin friendly body cleanser then use the pushing out the necessary skin excess and pushing your cuticle
4. Use your exfoliating scrub or sugar scrub(sugar mixed with olive oil) to scrub your nail area to remove dead skin. Wipe your hands dry and moisturize it.
