This can be done by using a nailbrush; the key is to gently take off any of the dead or dry skin that is found surrounding the main nail area. Using a nail cutter or a gentle sponge is a good idea. The skin around the nails usually gets hard and even dies. This is because the fingertips are the most used part of the hand and therefore the skin gets damaged easily.
Keep the area dry: once you use nail polish remover over your nails you should wait a while until the nails and the surrounding skin is totally dry.
Keep them shaped: the shape of the nails should be even and well rounded, if you like squared off nails then all the fingers should be equally squared off.
The process starts by taking each individual nail and drawing a half moon with the white nail polish and then filling it in. It is essential that one keeps a steady hand and that the semi circle come in a neat manner. If it doesn’t that can cause the hand to look shabby or clumsy. Therefore, neatness is the key. Once the half circle is done the tips of all the nails will be a white color. The next step is deciding what you want the base of the nail to look like. If you want it to look natural then its better, you use a light pink color. However, if you want to keep a neater look. Then it is much better that you use a beige color nail polish.
