Try to make sure you book regular appointments, it is recommended that all types of nail enhancements are rebalanced/infilled every 2-3 weeks. It is recommended that gel polish/ gelish maintenance is also every 2-3 weeks.
Massage cuticle oil daily into your nails, this will keep your enhancements flexible,prolong their life and it reduces breakages.
Please dont bite or pick at your nails, this can lead to weakening or breaking and could cause damage and thinning of your natural nails.
Your enhancements may take a while to get used to but always try to make sure you treat them with care, treat them as......Jewels not tools.
Wear rubber gloves when washing-up, gardening or using any cleaning products.
If for any reason you notice your nail extensions lifting or you have broken a nail, please dont use "glue" to repair it, water & dirt could get trapped underneath it and may cause an infection, please call us to arrange a repair asap.
Avoid using the "tips" to open doors, ring pulls etc
