Cuticle care

Don’t be tempted to cut your cuticle. An ointment for cuticle care will soften them and allow you to push them back gently.

Do this with a rubber hoof stick and avoid using anything metal.

Moisturise

Rub in a good foot cream to hydrate your skin.

Make sure you pay special attention to the heel and ball of the foot.

This will help to prevent a minefield of problems like hard skin and cracked heels.

Make this a part of your daily bedtime routine and you will find yourself amazed at how much your skin is ­transformed in just one week.

Polish and finish

Remove any residue on the nails with Cutex Acetone Free Nail Polish Remover.

Then insert toe dividers before applying your First Base to ensure nails are protected from ­staining.

Apply the first layer of nail polish allowing five minutes of drying time before the second coat. Finish with top coat.
