1. Start with clean hands and nails. Wash and exfolliate your hands with body scrub. Rinse and dry thoroughly.

2. Prepare your nails by filing and pushing back cuticles. Apply the base/top coat of nail polish and let dry completely.

3. Use a guide strip (available at most drug stores) and affix it below the tip of a nail, following its natural curve. The guide will allow you to paint an even white tip with ease and precision.

4. Paint each nail tip white, extending the brush stroke from the top of the guide to the end of the nail. Take care not to get any white polish on the body of the nail below the guide. Let the tips dry

5. After the tips are dry, remove all the guides. If there is any adhesive stuck to your nail from the guide, you can remove it with alcohol.

6. Apply two coats of the neutral polish, letting the first coat dry before the second application. Finish with a thin layer of base/top coat.
