The layer effects can come in pretty handy (especially the inner shadow, bevel and emboss and satin), but kevinashworth is right, an example would be best :-).

For this I would first shorten the nails using the clone stamp, then polish the nails a little with the smudge tool and probably as a last step add some shine to them with dodge & burn.

I attached you a sample PSD-file :-): http://www.sendspace.com/file/rb97fz

oops! sorry! you said manicure... not paint... my bad!

Helen, treat the nails just like anything else.... clone/ heal, remove imperfections, etc,... no different than repairing a necktie or nose or mouth... make em the way you want!

Hi Sergio 2263 - I've gone for long glossy nails. first i lasso'd a fingernail and copied it onto a layer of it's own, used free transform to stretch the nail, then used eraser to clip it to shape. Shown is just the index and middle finger done...
