Mini Nail Kit

Some nail kits or manicure tools may look a little strange and not everyone knows how to use them the right way. However, you can learn the right way to use a cuticle pusher, cuticle nipper, nail clippers, and a nail file. After using your manicure tools, always make sure that you clean and disinfect them to prevent the spread of infection-causing bacteria.


Using Cuticle Pushers and Nippers

Soften cuticles with cuticle remover or softener. This will make it easier to push back the cuticles and also to remove any excess skin with the cuticle nippers. Try soaking nails in a solution of warm water with a few drops of hand soap in it. Let the nails soak for about five minutes.


Push back the cuticle.

Use the rounded edge of your cuticle pusher to gently push back the cuticle. Do this for all of the nails.


Use the pointed end of the cuticle pusher to scrape away dirt and debris.

Be careful with using a cuticle pusher. Do not try to stick it under the cuticle.


Squeeze excess skin with the cuticle nippers.

After you finish pushing back and cleaning around the cuticle, check for any excess skin around the cuticle area that might interfere with painting the nail. If you spot any excess skin, then you can use the cuticle nippers to remove it.


Clipping and Filing Nails

Trim nails with a straight edge clipper. Clip only a small amount of the nail at a time. Otherwise, you may end up trimming too much. Next, you will need to file down any rough edges left on the nail. Use a nail file to smooth out ridges and start to shape the nail.  


Buff nails for a smooth finish.

After you are done filing, use a nail buffer to smooth out the tops of the nails. This will improve the texture of the nails and make it easier to apply and even coat nail polish.

This general-purpose brush is the ideal tool for removing excess dust after the initial application of makeup or nails. The brush is appropriate for professional or home use. Removes excessive decoration powders and glitter from the fingers as well as residues from the file.


This brush is an essential, versatile brush. The elegant design is so soft and dense, making it a key tool for mixing and applying powders with ease. The synthetic hairs shaped in the shape of a dome are designed so that they collect the exact amount of makeup and deposit it gently on the skin for a smooth and even finish.

Read this article to have more idea on how to prep your nails: How to Prep your Natural Nails x KC NailsStep 2: Trim and file your nails.
Shape your nails according to your liking to make them look neat. Since you're creating nail art, try not to trim them too short - it's better to have more space to work with.Step 3: Apply a basecoat.
Basecoats are usually clear or bluish in color, it protects your nails from getting stained or damaged by nail polish and other nail art materials.
Apply 1-2 layers of basecoat and allow it to completely dry before proceeding to the next step. Some basecoats remain tacky after drying. This texture is meant to help the next layer, the polish, stay in place longer without chipping.Step 4: Add any nail art decals, jewels, or stickers to your nail.
Start with a coat of your favorite nail polish and accent it with a pretty decoration.
- Apply a base coat color or a clear base coat. Allow the polish to dry.
- Place a dab of nail glue or nail gel on your nail. Put it high on the nail, toward the tip, or in a lower corner. Think about where it will look best.
- Pick up the jewel or nail decals/stickers of your choice with a pair of tweezers and drop them onto the gel or glue. Use the tweezers to gently press it into place. Allow the glue to dry.
- Paint a clear top coat over the nail to keep the sticker or jewel from falling off - to make it last longer!
- Tadah! You’re done.
