The Classic Manicure - Technique Of Implementation

The classic manicure is the most common type of manicure. The use of water in the manicure procedures allows us to call it "wet" manicure.

Techniques of implementation for the classic manicure

1. Remove the rest of the old varnish.
2. Using a nail file, give the desired shape to the nails (the procedure in no case should be done on wet fingernails, this can lead to their stratifying). The file should be on the basis of cardboard or rubber, iron nail file is a yesterday story. If you have strong nails, it can be used the boldly sandy or sapphire file. If you can not boast with such nails, preferred are the fine-grained files.
3. Soak the hands in the vessel with a special solution that should soften the cuticle, preparing it for removal, and to provide a calming and relaxing effect on the skin of the whole hand for 5 min. An easy but very useful for the nails is the option - sea salt solution. The components can be more interesting and exotic.
4. After the softening bath, the cuticle is removed with the help of manicure pincher.
5. The barb abrasion is made with manicure scissors.
6. With easy massage movements rub in the nutritious oil or cream for the skin of hands and cuticles.
7. Give the nails a healthy shine with a burnisher.
8. If desired, you can apply on nails a strengthening solution or a nail polish.

Advantages of classic manicure
  • the procedure is very simple and is fairly fast
  • this is the only acceptable method, if hands are badly neglected.
Disadvantages of classic manicure

Nail Care: Protecting The Nails

Nail protecting is realized by applying on the nail plate surface a waterproof cover, which isolates them from the bad effects of water and mud. The hygienic lipstick made on the wax basis performs this function excellent. Of course, you may look strange at the fact that I propose to use the lipstick to protect the nails, but it is the best you can think of. It is inexpensive and a very effective way to care for the nails.

In order to reliably protect your nails, use a lipstick that contains additives that protect lips from UV radiation. Nails, like any other body part, are very susceptible to the sunlight damage, so a lipstick with the additives can help you protect not only the lips, but nails too. The hygienic lipsticks contain vitamin E, panthenol, aloe juice, which is very useful for nails. You can buy hygienic lipstick on the basis of wax at any pharmacy or in a specialized shop.

In conclusion, I want to warn you: before purchase, make sure that the lipstick is made on the basis of wax. Some new types of hygienic lip lipstick are oil-based. Perhaps for the purpose of a lipstick, oil base is better than wax, but for the nails the wax is necessary to make them watertight.
