Step no.1: cleaning
First of all, remove the old nailpolish using some nailpolish remover and cotton balls. Be carefull to remove every single bit, so that your nails are perfectly clean. I'm using a local brand of nailpolish, with wild rose extract and natural silk proteins. Anyway, any brands will do the job, but it's better to chose a remover which also has some special ingredients included. This way, your nails also get a bit of extra treatment while being cleaned.
Step no.3: cuticles
Step no.6: top coat
Apply over the regular nailpolish a top coat to make sure the manicure will last longer. You can use either a special product or clear nailpolish.
That's about it. I hope you'll find this guide usefull and I can't wait to hear your opinions!
