1. USE CUTICLE OIL
Nails need a skincare routine, too. No matter what nail service you opt for, cuticle oil will enhance a natural nail’s flexibility and resilience. Well-hydrated nails are less likely to become brittle, break or split. It also improves the appearance of cuticles and prevents hangnails. Oil every day before bed and massage into your cuticles for maximum effectiveness.
To simplify your nail-care routine, consider trying cuticle oil pens. You can help save the environment while nurturing your cuticles!
2. DO NOT PICK AT NAIL ENHANCEMENTS
Improperly removing nail enhancements will damage your natural nail. Always return to the salon for proper maintenance or removal as needed. When you pick off nail enhancements, you are removing layers of the nail as well.
3. YOUR NAILS ARE JEWELS, NOT TOOLS
Avoid using your nails to open boxes, scrape off labels or pry objects open. Using your nails as tools will cause nail products to lift and chip and likely will damage natural nails if they are not maintained. Nails are an awesome way to express yourself, but their ultimate function is to protect our fingertips to facilitate dexterity. By taking care to ensure that you are not causing undue trauma to your nails, you will enjoy long lasting nail enhancements and strong natural nails.
