Apply the scrub to your nails and rub it on finger skin, cuticle area with gentle finger massage until you can feel grains. Leave it for 10 minutes then wash them under running water. Repeat this process at least 2-3 times a week for healthy strong nails. You will see visible results within few days only 🙂
