1 – Don’t scratch
You have no idea how bad peeling is for your nails. When you peel off a nail strengthening product, you’re stripping away layers of the nail plate, which weakens the nail and causes it to chip further. It’s a vicious circle.
2 – Camouflage the defect
If you notice your manicure starting to chip, don’t start scratching. The method: file the nail where the chipping occurred, don’t tear the nails and apply a finishing varnish. It’s as simple as that.
3 – Take care of your manicure
I recommend wearing gloves for dish washing and cleaning, and avoiding opening boxes to increase the longevity of your gel manicure. For those who bite their nails, keep your hands away from your mouth.
4 – Use a cuticle oil
Investing in a cuticle oil can keep your nails and skin healthy. Nutrient-rich oils can stimulate circulation around the nail, promoting nail growth.
5 – Take breaks between manicures
Your nails need water and air like the rest of your body, and chaining gel manicures is like choking your nails, which can damage and break them. So take time between gel applications.
6 – Go through professionals
It is best to entrust the removal of the gel to professionals. The tools and techniques used by quality nail technicians will remove the top coat more carefully, allowing the acetone to soak into the colored gel faster.
OK! I believe you have know the tips for taking care of your semi-permanent manicure. In addition, I advise you to invest in a complete manicure kit to care for your nails!
