    Nail expert Nia Cooper demonstrates how to give a manicure, including how to seal and protect the manicure.

    Hi, I am Nia, a Nail Artist at the Erwin Gomez Salon & Spa. Today, we have been going through the basic steps to a manicure. Now, I will be showing you how to apply the cuticle oil and the rapid dry spray to seal and protect your freshly finished manicure. Now, when you apply the cuticle oil, you just want to do a little dot to the cuticle. Be sure to apply it under the cuticle because you don t want the oil to drip under into the polish. This will cause streaking to the nail. Once the cuticle oil is onto the cuticle you want to let it stay for approximately one minute before you apply the rapid dry spray and just do three light pumps one, two, three. Now, I have taken you through all the steps to the basic manicure. Good luck and be sure to try it at home. Kiss-kiss.
