Hello Princes and Princesses!
I have been looking at the Etude page at Facebook and one girl asked:
"How do you put on the Dear Darling Nail Care thingy? In what order?"
Step by step to Etude House’s Dear Darling Nail Care step 5:
- Step 1 Bottle- Essence Coat
It is a the nail care bottle with a faint yellow color, it is used to provide nutrients to your nails since too much nail polish sessions can sometimes make your nails a bit deprived of nutrients. Wait for it to dry the proceed to the next step.
- Step 2 Bottle- Gel type Cuticle Nail Remover
This bottle is easily recognizable because it is a clear liquid gel with blue micro-beads in it. Its function is to gently remove any left over nail polish from your previous nail art or nail polish sessions, since sometime we can’t reach the corners of our nails with just a liquid nail remover and cotton pad this seems like a good solution and hassle-free too.
- Step 3 Bottle-Keratin Coat/Nail Hardener
This little baby is really helpful.The liquid is a very cloudy white kind so it is very noticeable, This coats your nails with Keratin which is what our nails are made of. In short this helps strengthen our nails since some girls tend to get brittle nails due to nail polish.
Note: This works well too after you wanted your nails to rest a bit, you can apply this everyday or every other day to get your nails hard and healthy for the next nail polish session.
- Step 4 Bottle- Base Coat
This is something familiar dear girls.The liquid is a light lavender shade and this coats your nails and helps protects it from the pigments of the nail polishes. It is said that yellow nails results from the nail polishes pigments especially dark ones so using a base coat is advisable and it reduces our nails from getting that yellow hue.
- Step 5-Top Coat
Finally the last step! This bottle’s liquid is clear…yup no micro-beads,no faint color shade just plain clear as water clear! This is used after putting your favorite nail polishes or after you are done with your nail art. It helps make the nail polish look more glossy and shiny and it also protects your nails from getting damaged or ruined. ( had those days when i don’t put a top coat after I put nail polish, it lasts for only.. 2-3 days. With a Top Coat on it stays on longer!)
I hope this has been helpful to you Etude lovers!
You don’t have to necessarily follow it step by step. I usually just do Step 4 and Step 5 when I do nail polish sessions but I do Step 1-2-3 whenever I wanna give my nails a rest from nail polish but these steps are done to help you care for your nails first before putting actual nail polish so that you and your nails stay healthy and happy!
Good luck and Enjoy!
