Prep your nails
 

Prep your nails

Start by removing any leftover nail polish and soak your nails in warm water for a while. Remove dead skin around the nails and wipe them clean.

Shape them

Push the cuticles back using a cuticle stick without damaging the nail bed. Be gentle during the process and ensure that all your nails look the same size and shape.

Apply a base coat

Now that your nails are prepped, apply a clear base coat and allow it to dry. A base coat not only protects your nail bed, but it also corrects any discoloration on your nails and makes them look even.

Do the tips
 

Do the tips

This part is tricky but we’ve got an easy way to do it! The ends of Band-Aids are perfectly and readily shaped like our nails. Cut a small piece for each fingernail and stick them on the pink part in a way that only your tips are exposed. Now take a white nail polish and cover your tips with it. Once it is semi-dry remove the Band-Aid.
