How To: Take care of your nails properly

Nails. Since I was a little girl, my mother always told me that good nails make good impression, so there was no Sunday without a mani-pedi with my mother.  I think that girls that ignore taking care of their nails are disgusting, because it is the first thing you see, when you look at their hands or have the "meeting shake". They don't need to be done with nail polish but at least they should not have any dirt under the nails. When I see dirt, my first thought is to take their hands and clean them. 
Unfortunantley there are many girls, over the age of 18(!), that still don't know how important polished nails are, so I decided after seeing some girls at a store with dirt under their nails to make a tutorial on how to clean and take care of your nails properly.

1. You will need a bowl with warm water and soup, a file, a cuticle scrissor, a nail clipper and a file with 3 sides for polishing your nail.

2. Put your hands in the warm water and stay like that for about 5 minutes.

3. Cut them.

 4. When they are clean, I use a buffing file with 3 sides to smooth the nails around the cuticles and make them shiny.

 5. File the nails to your desired shape and cut the cuticles or just push them.

6.The last step is to paint your nails. I chose orange.

 I smudged my nails because I was in a hurry (don't do that). 

Happy nails!! :)
Don't forget to apply a hand cream after you are done. 

 I hope you enjoyed it!
