Nail polish Remover
My first step is to remove the nail polish and protein treatment that I already have on it. I use this nail polish remover that I got from Nykaa and it's from colorbar. Now I like this one in particular as its non – carcinogenic, paraben-free, and also colorbar is a cruelty- free brand. It's an ultra-efficient nail enamel remover which is infused with proteins and Vitamins B 5 leaving my nails moisturized. The best thing which I personally like in it is, formulated without acetone, toluene, and DBP. Highly recommended as it leaves my nail bed strengthened and moisturized.
After all the nail polish has been removed I like to dip my hands in a bowl of warm water just to help soften my cuticles so I can push them back and to do that I like to use a cuticle pusher. I just push them back really gently and since I do this almost weekly they're usually not too much.
Nipper and Buffer:
My third step is to go ahead with a cuticle nipper to gently remove any hangnails or excess skin that I have around my nails and afterward I like to use a buffer to buff and smooth out my nails I do experience ridging on one of my thumbnails so buffing it out just really helps to keep it smooth
My fourth step is to file my nails. I like to use it just to keep my nails file down to almond shape and I just found that it's really gentle all my nails.
I enjoy it to keep my cuticles hydrated. In order to do so I like to use a little bit of macadamia oil and then my favorite part is using this Orly nail defense strengthening protein treatment. I absolutely love this protein treatment I think it has helped so much in keeping my nails strong because that's what it's meant to do but I like to apply this under any kind of nail polish that I'm using. Sometimes I'll even just use two coats of this protein treatment and call it a day. It also dries really quickly which is a huge plus and I find that it prevents, yellow staining from other nail polishes so I really appreciate that as well.
I have recently been using this clear coat from Sally Hansen – no chip top coat and I really like just using clear nail polish because I like the way it looks its a lot easier to maintain. I don’t have to worry about how it looks when it chips it took me about two months to grow my nails up to this length I did break too along the way so I have had to start over with those but generally my nails grow pretty quickly I do take liquid biotin for my hair so I am not sure how much that affects my nail growth but this is my nail through the routine you guys I really think that this routine helps to keep them strong and from breaking.
