Aftercare

NATURAL NAILS

  • Treat your nails as jewels not tools – Don’t peel labels, open cans etc with your nails.
  • Use cuticle oil at least twice a day to help nourish your nails and keep your surrounding skin supple.
  • Always apply a base coat before applying nail polish.
  • Keep your polish looking clean and fresh with a top coat. You can apply a coat of top coat to polish every couple of days to refresh the shine.
  • File nails in one direction only to prevent your nails from flaking or peeling.
  • Apply moisturising hand cream whenever you have washed your hands.
  • Wear rubber gloves when cleaning and doing the dishes etc.

GELISH, POLYGEL & DIP ENHANCEMENTS                                             

  • Treat your nails like jewels not tools – Don’t peel labels, open cans etc with your nails.
  • Use cuticle oil at least twice a day to keep your nails flexible and your surrounding skin supple. Cuticle oil helps to nourish your nails and protect from water damage. It also helps to prevent your natural nail from dehydration that can cause your nail to pull away from any enhancements on top.
  • Always wear rubber gloves when cleaning, doing the dishes etc.  A number of household products including Cif, Cillit Bang and those containing ammonia, damage nail products. Also avoid the insect repellent Deet as it damages nail enhancements & Gelish.
  • Apply moisturising hand cream whenever you have washed your hands.
  • Use acetone free nail polish remover when taking off polish from nails if you have painted over your Gelish / PolyGel or Dip.
  • Do not pick or remove your enhancements or Gelish with your teeth or nails as this may cause distress and weaken your natural nails.
  • If you have any product lifting, do not glue the product back down.  This can lead to a bacteria infection growing underneath the enhancement.  Contact your nail technician and book in for a maintenance appointment.
  • It is recommended that you book appointments every two to three weeks to ensure the health of your nails.
