While Dick was in New York tooting G Dub's horn in the face of hundreds of thousands of protesters G Dub "was in West Virginia, accusing Democratic rival Sen.

The idea is to strike out the stuff that doesn't apply to me. Interesting how many of them do.
Fun to be with. Secretive.

Supplies: Bowl of warm water with one squirt liquid hand soap, orangewood stick or stick with plastic tipped cuticle pusher, hand towel, emory board, 3 or 4-way buffer, Q-tips, polish remover, base coat (Stickey by Creative or similar), polish of your choice, top coat, UV nail dryer.
- Soak fingertips in bowl of warm, soapy water for 3 or 4 minutes.
- Remove from water and using orangewood stick or cuticle pusher, gently push cuticles back. Rinse. Dry with hand towel, pushing cuticles back with towel.
- File edges of nails with emory board, going in one direction. Dont saw back and forth as it tears the nail.
- Buff nails using 3 or 4-way buffer, following steps numbered on buffer.
- Rinse hands to remove residue. Dry thoroughly.
- Dip Q-tip in polish remover and rub over each nail.
- Apply thin layer of base coat. Let set one minute.
- Apply two thin coats polish, waiting one minute between coats.
- Apply thin layer of top coat.
- Place hands under UV dryer for several minutes until set.
Useful tips: Store nail polish in refrigerator. Remove and let reach room temperature before using. Roll polish bottle between your palms, never shake it. Dont polish your nails under an a/c vent or fan. Dont change your polish more than once a week or your nails will dry out.
Keep in mind this deals with the nails only. There are many more extras that you can do to keep your hands and feet looking great. Lotion is a must. A foot scrub or sloughing lotion massaged onto feet keeps them smooth. Pumice stones aren't a good idea as they really only make the skin tougher.
This post was inspired by a post over on livejournal on the hip_domestics forum. I realized that many people don't know the proper steps to follow for a professional manicure.
