Great Ways to Make Your Manicure Last Longer
At Match Skin Salon we always ensure you receive the best customer service possible. That’s one of the reasons why we decided to put together a useful guide on how to ensure your OPI nail manicure lasts as long as possible once you leave our store.
This doesn’t mean we don’t want to see you again. It’s just that our nail technicians have so many years of beauty experience, we thought who better to advise you on the best ways to ensure your manicure is with you for the long haul. Just make sure you come back and see us again soon; don’t be a stranger!
Clean and Serene Pre Care
Before you visit us, we advise that your nails are completely clean to ensure our OPI polish sticks properly. Try sweeping a cotton bud of white vinegar or nail varnish remover over the nails, even if they look clean. This really will aid us to ensure the longevity of your manicure.
Reapply Your Top Coat
We know that you may prefer our professional team to deal with your nails, but we really do suggest reapplying a thin layer of the top coat every two to three days yourself. This not only seals the nail tip, but also enhances the long-term shine and look. Try drying the top coat in cool air to harden the polish, or even dip the nail tips in cold water for a minute.
Daily Nail Oil
Nobody said this was going to be easy! Dry nails can split, so we suggest moisturising the cuticles and nail every day with oil to ensure they stay smooth and supple. We know it’s a bit of a chore, but it really will make huge difference to your length of time between manicures.
Beware of Baths & Housework
We all would rather not do the washing up and cleaning, but unfortunately the world doesn’t quite work like that! After a manicure be sure to wear gloves when dealing with detergents and cleaning products. Also, try and avoid those nice relaxing soaks in the tub, as any long length of time under water will almost certainly weaken the polish.
Our tips should see YOUR tips stay brighter and stronger for longer!
