Ravisante uses: OPI Nail File; Trind Cuticle Remover, Cuticle Balsam, Nail Magic 3-Way Buffer, Nail Balsam, Advanced Hand Repair, Base Coat, Nail Repair (available in multiple color and finish options), and Top Coat.


1. Make sure the client commits to regular manicure appointments (at least every other week) as part of the “rehab” process.

2. Use the OPI Nail File to shorten the nails to the desired length and shape. Give the client the file to take home.

3. Soak nails in warm water for about one minute.

4. Apply Trind Cuticle Remover, leave on for one minute, then gently push back the cuticles.

5. Use nippers to carefully remove excess dead skin and any hangnails.

6. Apply Trind Cuticle Balsam to the eponychium area and leave on for one minute, then massage excess into the nails.

7. Use a Trind Nail Magic 3-Way Buffer to smooth nails (but do not overbuff).

8. Massage Trind Nail Balsam into the nail beds.

9. Massage Trind Advanced Hand Repair into the hands and lower arms.

10. Apply Trind Base Coat.

11. Apply Trind Nail Repair (available in multiple color and finish options).

12. Apply Trind Top Coat.

13. Retail the client products that will help her continue to repair and maintain her nails at home. This may include cuticle oil, hand cream, a nail file, top coat, and/or nail strengthener.
