1. Exfoliate and renew
Clean, smooth and soften hands with the Exfoliating Cream
. Massage into hands with a little warm water to remove the build-up of dry, hard skin and prepare hands for further treatments. Rinse off excess then pat hands dry.
2. File and shape
Push cuticles back neatly with the Hoof Stick then shape nails with the Glass Nail File
. It will give nails a professional, neat look and will help to seal their edges.
3. Buff and shine
Smooth and polish the surface of nails with the Nail Buffer Kit
. Use the Emery Buffer to smooth ridges and remove discolouration, and the Chamois Buffer with the Buffing Powder to polish the nail. It gives nails a natural shine, beautiful on its own or as a smooth base for the perfect application of nail varnish. Regular buffing also increases circulation in the matrix area, which stimulates growth and strength in the nail.
4. Strengthen and repair
Massage the Matrix Oil
into the nail bed to improve the strength of nails, especially if they are weak or damaged, and to stimulate growth. Apply Cuticle Cream
onto nails to help repair and condition dry, cracked cuticles.
5. Nurture and treat
Massage hands using the Treatment Cream
. Apply 5ml to one hand and massage firmly. After five minutes, repeat the process on the other hand. Apply more cream, cover hands with the disposable gloves provided and wrap in a warm towel. The warmth aids the penetration of the active ingredients and gives skin an intensive moisture boost.
