Nail Enhancements Aftercare Advice
Treat nails with care, do not use them as tools, think of them as jewels, using them as tools will damage the enhancement and natural nail.
Always wear protective gloves when doing gardening and household chores, cleaning products and nails being soaked in water can damage them.
Do not pick, peel, full or forcibly remove the gel or nail tip, avoiding tapping with the nail extension, picking them off will remove layers from the natural nail bed leaving damaged natural nails.
If the nail enhancement is lifting or damaged and this is ignored it could lead to a bacterial infection, do not pick it off as damage will be done to natural nail, make an appointment as soon as possible for therapist to check it over and repair.
Massage cuticle oil into the cuticle area of nail at least once daily, this nourishes the natural nail, encouraging healthy nail growth.
Always dry hands thoroughly and moisturise hands and cuticles.
If applying nail polish over gel use a base coat first to avoid staining.
Remove polish with non-acetone nail polish remover. Acetone can dissolve the nail enhancement and dull the shiny finish ruining them. Acetone should only be used for removals.
Be careful when near extreme heat and naked flames as this can cause nail extension to melt.
Tinted lotions, suntan creams hair products and highly coloured foods can discolour nail enhancement so thoroughly wash hands after use or wear gloves to protect them.
Do not miss your regular maintenance appointments to ensure nails stay looking their best. Infills should be done every 2 to 3 weeks.
If any adverse reactions occur: rash, redness, inflammation of any kind around the nails please contact me immediately.
You will have far better results as your hair will gradually weaken, growth will appear finer and a lot of clients will experience a reduction in hair growth over time. Exfoliate the area regularly (with a body scrub or bath mitts). Not only will your skin feel great, but this will also help prevent in-grown hairs.
Your hair follicles will be open after your treatment, so it is important to avoid the following for 24 hours after your wax:
