Looking After Your Manicure at Home

Manicures at Martin & Phelps Hair & Beauty Salon in CheltenhamYou should treat your nails like precious jewels and look after them well so they look perfectly polished at all times. Here’s some helpful tips for you to ensure your manicure looks salon fresh for longer…

Infills – If you have nail enhancements, you will require infill maintenance every 2-3 weeks, dependent on your lifestyle of course. If regular nail enhancement maintenance is not carried out then your enhancements will grow out, becoming weak and more at risk of breakage (ouch!).

Lifting – If you notice any lifting of your gel polish or any nail ehancements, do not pick at or pull your nail as it could damage the natural nail underneath. Please visit the salon for a repair as soon as possible. Any ignored lifting or damage could lead to an infection.

Gloves – Wherever possible, use gloves to wash up, garden or use household cleaners. Exposure to chemicals could cause your nail to become weak and lead to breaking.

Summer Care – Put your sunscreen on BEFORE applying your nail polish.  Many sunscreens will soften nail polish and can even dissolve acrylic nails. 

Biting your Nails – Biting your nails is one the most common ways to ruin your polish. Try applying a no-bite clear polish over your manicure to help wean you off this nasty habit.

The Golden Rule of Nail Enhancements

If you choose nail enchancements, you should make sure that your chosen nail length and shape match your lifestyle. Nails that are too long for your activity level will place stress on your nail enhancement and can cause breakage and damage to your natural nail.
