Magic Wax Board Instructions

The Magic Wax Board is the best natural nail strengthener I ever tried. After 30 years it's still the best.

The most important thing to remember is to think logically. The more circulation stimulation to your nails, the faster and better the result. To achieve a good wax coat you need to remember:

• Begin with clean and dry hands. 

  - Wax will not stick to oils.

• Start with the side with no writing.

  - this is just ink and will indicate a new side when the other has worn out, to show how long the Wax Board lasts.

• Buff firmly but not so hard it hurts or burns.

• Coat the nail evenly including the corners and the edge. This should take about 1 minute for each nail. Wiping your Wax Board clean with a dry cloth between nails.

• Look to achieve a healthy shine that builds to a polished shine after several layers are applied.

• Maintain this shine for growing strength and Beauty.

• Apply cuticle oil after waxing and every night before sleep.

 - this hydrates preventing brittleness and nourishes the nail for healthy growth.

How to apply Nail Polish like a Pro

The first thing is always apply to a cleanly manicures nail. No dust or ragged cuticles to ruin a perfect surface.

Secondly always, always use a Base Coat.

Preparation is the key to perfection and long lasting polish. After a thin application of Base Coat, apply your first coat of colour. This too should be thin but cover the entire nail, long strokes from cuticle to the tip of nail. The less strokes taken to apply the better. Don’t worry if it is thin or streaky, it's only the first coat.

Then take a little more care on the second coat, making sure you cover all corners, but again, thinly. This will ensure it dries quickly. Tidy up any over painting on the skin with a cotton bud and polish remover - always use non-acetone.

Lastly coat with a gloss Top Coat to seal, protect and help dry faster.
