Powder Perfection Nail Prep by Hand
  • Step by Step Instructions
  • Products & Tools Used

Always wash and sanitize the hands thoroughly using Swiss Blue Liquid Hand Soap or Swiss Hand Guard Antiseptic Gel.

Trim nails if needed and shape as desired with the EDGE 240 Nail File.

Apply Swiss Guard to the nail beds using a cuticle pusher and push back the eponychium to reveal the true cuticle.

Remove any residue left behind with a Nail Wipe saturated with N.A.S. 99 to keep the nail plate spotless.

Use the Dexterity Nail Plate Cleaner to remove excess non-living tissue. Use the side of Dexterity to gently remove any excess cuticle.

Remove any hangnails and remaining non-living tissue with the AccuNip Precision Nipper.

Gently buff the nail surface with the 220 side of the 220/280 FLEX, focusing on the sidewalls and the cuticle area. Then, remove the excess dust with a brush.

Once nails are smooth, wipe down the nails one more time. Then apply one coat of Bond-Aid and let it dry.

Finished prepped nails.
