‘‘ SHORT, SOFT-SQUARE NAILS ARE VERY FLATTERING FOR ALL NAIL SHAPES. ’’

BEHIND THIS LOOK:

A perfect manicure begins by avoiding an old-school protocol: soaking. “My manicures are always dry,” Westmoreland says. “If you soak your skin, it can be difficult to see if the stuff you're trimming is dead or alive.” Plus, it can swell the nail and cause premature chipping, she says, so remove any excess nail polish, wash hands thoroughly, and begin your nail care with dry hands.

Cuticle clean-up comes first for Westmoreland, for which she recommends Navy Doris Tool to gently push back any dead skin on the nail plate and the brand’s Katey Super Fine Nips to remove it. “The white, clear skin that you can push back is okay to trim as long as you're not trimming excessively or cutting away anything that’s alive,” she says. “Once a month is fine.”
