Also, I like my nails short, so I file them about every other time I paint my nails. So that ends up being about once a week. I do this entire routine about once every two to three weeks.
Here are the supplies I used in my tutorial:
ZOYA Nail Polish Remover: This is the best nail polish remover I have ever used. I don't buy it all the time, but most of the time. You can buy this on Zoya.com, Amazon or Ulta. If I do buy a generic brand from Target or Walmart, I always buy the one that is moisturizing.
Cotton Rounds: I prefer these over cotton balls. :)
Dr. G's Antimicrobial Callus and Cuticle Remover: I really love this cuticle remover! It's such a huge bottle, and has lasted for a long time, so I haven't really tried any other brands. I have heard that the Sally Hansen brand remover is good too. I bought this one at Sally's Beauty Supply, but you can also get it on Amazon (link above).
Tweezerman: My most favorite cuticle pusher. I have tried several. This one works best for me. :)
Nail Tek Crystal Nail File: I mostly use a crystal nail file. Sometimes I use nicer regular nail files, but I find that I get less nail peeling if I use a crystal file.
Buffer Block: I think any brand of this will do. I like to use the buffer to smooth out the edges of my nails. I also buff the tops of my nails about once a month.
CND Solar Oil: I have tried several cuticle oils, this one is my favorite, and it smells SO good! I apply this carefully after each manicure. Using acetone for clean up is very drying and this helps a lot. I also use it as part of my nail care routine which you will see in the video tutorial below.
