1. Remove all traces of nail polish with The Stripper lavender nail lacquer remover and be careful not to get any remover on the surrounding skin.

2. File nails using medium grade black file. Coarse emery boards or metal files can be damaging to the nail and cause it to split or peel... File nails from the outer edge to the center-- do not "saw" back and forth.

3. Brush on Cuticle Remover generously all around cuticle area. (Cuticle Remover should not be confused with Cuticle Oil or cream.)

4. Add a few drops of Cuticle Remover into bowl of warm water and soak fingers for two minutes.

5. Using a cuticle pusher, push back cuticles by moving pusher in tiny, circular movements ALL around the nail plate.

6. Gently wipe excess from nail plate and carefully "nip" any loose edges of skin. Never cut your cuticle as the cuticle is a barrier to keep bacteria from entering the body.

7. Massage in your favorite hand lotion and/ or Cuticle Oil.

8. Wrap small amount of cotton around tip of orange wood stick and dip it in The Stripper. Gently wipe excess oil from nail plate, under nail and across nail tip.
