Manicure Aftercare

To make the best of your newly manicured hands, follow these simple guidelines:
  • Leave adequate time after your treatment for your nails to dry
  • Wear protective gloves when gardening, or doing housework
  • Dry hands thoroughly after washing
  • Use hand cream regularly
  • Do not use your fingernails as tools, use pads of fingers instead
  • Always use a base coat under polish to prevent staining, and use a good quality top coat to prevent chipping
  • Use an acetone-free nail polish remover
  • Never use metal files
  • Keep nails a workable length
  • Use cuticle cream or oil daily to moisturise dry cuticles
  • Drink plenty of water and eat well
  • Do simple hand exercise to keep joints supple
  • Avoid harsh and drying soaps
  • Return to your manicurist for regular, professional manicures at least every 2-4 weeks for maintenance and further treatments
