Amazing Tips for Beautiful Nails
We believe that looking after your hands all year round is the best way to beautiful nails. That’s why we decided to list a few interesting salon tips and tricks to ensure your nails stay strong and healthy for as long as possible.
All of our hands take a bit of a battering from time to time, so why not follow a few of our golden rules to a lifetime of well groomed, elegant nails.
Take Care of the Cuticles
These are the natural barriers to protect your nails from infection, so be sure not to cut them or push them back as this can lead to permanent nail damage.
Moisturising the nail bed actually helps them to grow, so if you are prone to breakages it could mean they need more moisture. Looking after the cuticle helps the entire nail and will reduce chipping, cracking and splitting. Keep your cuticles cute!
Beware Damaging Products
You nails are delicate, so heavy duty chemicals are out. If you suffer from brittle nails, be sure not to use acetone polish remover as this strips the nails.
Hardening products should also be used with caution, as healthy nails should be flexible. You wouldn’t apply damaging chemicals to your skin, so treat your nails with the love and respect they deserve.
Choose Tips Over Extensions
If you decide that nail extensions are the way forward, try to use just tips rather than full extensions. The more you cover the real nail, the more susceptible it becomes to infection and permanent damage.
Easy Ways to Prevent Chipping
Painting two base coat layers will help to stop your nails from chipping. Paint the first base coat on the top half portion of your nails and then after they have dried, paint a second coat of polish across the entire nail. This help the polish on the tips last longer and prevents the nails from chipping.
