    hi loves! 💖 these are the simple steps to do an express manicure at home to trim and clean your nails ✨

    ⚠️ general rule about nail files: the higher the grit number, the smoother the file. so never use 100/180 nail files on the *surface* of the nails as it will scratch the nail. if your nail file doesn’t specify this, then just follow the label!

    + don’t forget to wash your hands and dry it before doing these steps~

    1️⃣cut or trim your nails with a good quality clippers

    2️⃣shape your nails by smoothing the edges with the rough side of the nail file (100 grit)

    5️⃣gently push back your cuticles with a nail cuticle pusher
