1.Clean your hands/feet well with soap and water remove any old nail polish using cotton and nail polish remover.

2.Take lukewarm water in a basin,and a few Drops of baby shampoo, a teaspoon of rock salt and juice of one lemon..soak your hands/feet in it for 10-15 minutes..Then lightly scrub and clean your nails with a soft bristled nail brush

3.For Feet:Rub with pumice stone underneath your feet to remove dead cells (especially on the balls,sides and heels of ur feet).Then wipe your hands/Feet dry..

4.Cut the nails with nail cutter and remove dirt from underneath the nail corners (since the nail will be soft after soaking,It will be easier to cut and clean).
Hands nails-file your nail's sharp ends and shape them as desired.
For toe nails-Wipe toe nails and cut them straight across to avoid ingrown nails.File them using the Nail file.

5.Apply cuticle cream to the base of each nail and rubs over your nails and massage gently.Gently push back the cuticles using the orange stick in circular movement.You can use Olive oil instead of cuticle cream.
Trim cuticle (any loose dead skin) While they are still Soft using cuticle Scissors or nippers.I suggest that you avoid this step as it is best done by a professional.

6.Wash hands/feet,pat them dry with the Turkish towel (dry well between the finger's and toes)

7.Massage your feet and hands gently with a moisturizing lotion or cream.
Wipe nails with cotton wool to remove any excess lotion or cream left on the nail bed.

8.Now it is time to apply nail polish.
Apply a base coat first and let it dry.Then apply 2 coats of your desired nail polish. Then finish it with a thin top coat. This will help your nail polish last longer.
For Feet-separate the toes by placing cotton in between your toes or use ready-made toe separator to separate the toes before applying polish.

9.lastly wrap orange stick in cotton wool,dip it in polish remover and remove traces of polish left on the skin to give a neat appearance.

If you do not want to paint your nails,just leave it as it is you can buff your nail with a nail buffer...
