Step 1: Shorten your nails (if needed)

Use the more abrasive side of the white emery board (without the Manucurist logo) to reduce the length of your nails. Without filing back and forth, start at the sides and move towards the "top" of the nail to balance the shape.

Step 2: Smooth out the shape

Use the less abrasive side of the white emery board (with the Manucurist logo) to smooth out and fine-tune the shape.

Step 3: Soften the skin around the nail

Use the dropper to apply our 97%-plant-based Cuticle Remover to the contour of each nail. Leave to work for 2 minutes.

Step 4: Push back the skin around the nail

Use our stainless steel cuticle remover to push back the skin around the nail, keeping the tip of the tool as parallel to the nail as possible. You usually start with the rounder tip and finish removing the last of the dead skin with the straighter tip.

Step 5: Prep the nail for polish

Use the Nail Priming Emery Board to gently buff the nail without moving back and forth.

👉 If you then want to apply polish:

Step 6: Remove the oil from the nail before applying polish

Soak a cotton pad in nail polish remover to clean your nails and remove any oil before applying your base coat. We don't recommend washing your hands, as the base coat will not adhere properly if your nails are damp.

👉 If you just want to enjoy clean nails:

Step 6: Moisturize your nails

Carefully wash your hands and apply our Green Oil, Complete Serum and Hand Cream.

Pro tip ✨

Good nail prep will ensure your Green™ or Green Flash polish lasts longer!
