Most of the time we worry about the health of our face and hair, but we put aside our nails. We tend to paint them in colors, without taking into account the damage caused by the chemicals contained in the nail varnish, making them brittle and yellowish.

4. Give them shine
Now it's time to use the last two sides of our buffer block, with the third face of the file you will seek to unify the texture of your nail so that the stretch marks disappear, remember to make the movement in a transversal way following the natural shape of the nail; When finished, you will use the finer part of the polisher to give it shine. Clean your nails with a towel soaked in olive oil to eliminate surplus and see the final result.
