5 Step Manicure
The first step in achieving beautiful nails is to cleanse and prep your base. Deborah recommends you follow this step with protein-rich two second nail primer to remove any excess oil, dirt and residue from the nail. Next, it’s time to shape the nail. For this, Deborah recommends the Eco-file and to exfoliate, buff and shine with the smooth operator. Step three is to perfect your cuticles. To ensure smooth application of your polish, you need to soften, push back and hydrate your cuticles. The last stage of preparation is to apply a base coat to the nail as this will ensure your manicure lasts longer. Remember to cap the nail and tip before applying your chosen colour. Step five – colour, colour, colour!
