The Ultimate Home Essie Manicure
Without a proper manicure, all your time and money spent on nail polish is going to be wasted no matter how good your polish is.

Remove all your nail polish right down to the last traces using Essie Purifying Nail Polish Remover, before treating each cuticle with gentle strokes of Essies Cuticle Pen
Work Essie Apricot Cuticle Oil into cuticles and fingers in a massaging motion and carefully push back the cuticles by delicate nudging with a proper cuticle pusher. Next, rinse your hands in warm water and place them on a clean towel before theyre dry.
Youll need a spatula to mix up Essie Spa Sea Mineral Glow and then youre going to apply this to the backs of your hands and fingers. Massage it in with circular movements, starting from your fingers moving upwards towards your wrists. Remove excess product using damp cloths and dip your hands into clean warm water again. Use Essie Spa Kirby Crème to smooth into hands and fingers. Next wrap them in cling film, ready for ten minutes in heated mittens. Press down on the mittens every three minutes to keep fingers feeling luxuriantly warmed and soothed.
Having removed the mittens and cling film, use the Kirby crème to massage hands and lower arms. Now spray each nail with Essie Refreshing Nail Cleanser and wait a few moments until dry.
If your nails have grown too long, use your nail clippers in a “nibbling” movement, helping to stop the edges of the nails suffering trauma from clumsy clipping. Any hangnails can also be carefully clipped away but use cuticle clippers for this.
Use an Essie Crystal File to file the free edge of each nail with one-directional, long strokes. Finish off with gently downward bevelling movements. This helps seal the free edges. Avoid backwards and forwards type movements at all costs they weaken the nail leading to splitting and sometimes peeling.
Take some lint free cloth and wind it around your thumb. Dip your thumb gently in warm water, so you can wipe it carefully around your cuticles to remove the last tiny bits of oil, dust and other foreign matter. Apply a nail preparation treatment such as Seche Prep to each nail, working from little finger to thumb works best.
