More than ever, this planet and our people need the energetics of love, healing and self care. We are choosing to stay proactive and positive, so we are sharing our tips to create a salon quality manicure in the safety of your home during this time fo self isolation or quarantine.
Before beginning any nail treatment, always make sure to use a clean and sanitized work area. We recommend have everything ready including towels and positioning your hands and tools on a flat and protected surface. Our the PRITINYC basic essential kit contains all the products needed .
Now might also be the time to crank up your favorite tunes or play some relaxing spa-like or meditation music.
Step 1: Remove any existing nail polish with Priti NYC Soy Nail Polish Remover. Wash your hands afterward.
Step 2: Soak your fingers in a small bowl of warm water. If desired, add a fresh flower or herb to the bowl. This will elevate the senses and create a naturally beautiful workspace.
Step 3: Clip nails, if necessary. Then using the Priti NYC Crystal Glass Nail File, file in one direction to shape the nails of the first hand either square, round or squoval. Our crystal glass nail file is perfect for use on natural nails.When complete, place the hand in the bowl of warm water. Repeat these steps with the second hand.
Step 4: After removing the first hand from the soak, apply Cuticle Remover to push back cuticles with the back of the Priti NYC Crystal Nail File. Follow by buffing the nails and then repeat with second hand.
Step 5: Exfoliate hands, wrists and forearms with a hand scrub that eliminates dead skin cells. Wash hands afterward and dry them thoroughly. Grab your favorite hand cream and pamper your hands and lower arms with massage to replenish moisture and help you relax. When finished with the massage, use another clean hot towel to remove any excess lotion, making sure to clean each nail bed and dry thoroughly. Then wipe each nail with Priti NYC Soy Nail Polish Remover. Please make sure you clean all remover off nail as it is oil based . Use a cotton pad with water and dry thoroughly.
Step 6: If your nails have any rough surfaces, apply Priti NYC Primer & Ridge Filler and let nails thoroughly dry before adding a base coat. Otherwise, begin by applying one coat of Priti NYC 2 in 1 Top & Base Coat. The base coat is an important step because it hydrates, protects nails and prevents chipping. We recommend always waiting two full minutes between each coat, starting with either the Primer & Ridge Filler or 2 in 1 Top & Base Coat.
Step 7: Now grab your favorite new Priti NYC polish and apply it being sure to brush all the way down to the cuticle and into each corner of your nail. Wait patiently for two minutes and apply a second coat of polish. Again practice mindfulness and wait another two minutes before topping off your nails with Priti NYC Speedy Dry Top Coat. The topcoat protects your manicure from chipping and adds extra shine to nails. Let nails dry an additional five minutes.
Simply close your eyes and bask in this luxurious time of self-care and nourishment for your body and soul.
Step 8: Apply Priti NYC Cuticle Oil with Geranium Essential Oil on your nail bed for a penetrating and moisturizing treat to prevent cracked, and dry cuticles. Voila, now you have perfectly polished fingers to dial a loved one!
