My nail routine (plus video tutorial!)
The video shows a quick overview of the way I file my nails and how I achieve my round shape while keeping all my nails at the same length. It also shows the technique I use to polish my nails, how I get nice clean edges around my cuticles and how my peel off base coat works. Click to see more!
The burning questions on everyone's mind: don't you push back your cuticles? No I don't. It feels awful and they don't bother me where they are, so I leave them :)
Another good question you probably have: what cuticle oil/balm do you use? This wasn't included in the video because I never use oil or balm. My cuticles never bother me & don't need it so I can't give you any recommendations for which products are good to use.
The products I used are:
- A course nail file, I got this from someone so I have no idea what grit it is or where to get it
- Home made peel off base coat (learn how to make it)
- piCture pOlish Bonkers
- Essence acetone-free nail polish remover, this one smells like strawberry & passion fruit!
- HK Girl top coat from Glisten&Glow which I buy in bulk from Hypnotic Polish
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the video with my crazy Dutch voiceover!
