3. The Kristee Beauty Tutorial

The thing we loved the most about Kristee Beauty’s tutorial is that not only does she show us how to trim nails properly, but she also shows us how to take care of them. Therefore, she begins by cutting her long and beautiful nails with manicure scissors. Then she files them away into perfection until she gets rid of all those pesky corners that might cause them to break.

The next step is applying a layer of O.P.I Original Nail Envy Nail Strengthener. The beauty vlogger does this every day for six days straight. On the seventh day, you can take it all off and then start over. This little habit will strengthen your nails, make them shinier and healthier and also serve you as a nail polish base.

Then she uses a bit of extra virgin olive oil twice or three times a day to soften her cuticles and make sure her hands are always in pristine conditions. And what pretty hands she has! To see more of them, check out her Insta.
