After care advice
Never use your nail extensions as tools, Treat them the way you would treat your natural nails.
Do not bite, pick at or file your extensions.
Wear gloves when you do washing up or using household detergents.
If lifting can be seen please text me as water and dirt can get under it and could cause infections.
If any adverse reactions occurs: rash, redness, inflammation of any kind around the nails please contact me immediately.
Do not try to remove them as this can damage your natural nails. Please contact me so I can remove them properly.
Tinted lotions, suntan creams and hair products can discolour your extensions so wash your hands thoroughly after use or use gloves to protect them.
Please use cuticle oil everyday to keep your nails looking good and nourish the natural nail underneath.
Do not miss your regular maintenance appointments to ensure always show that your nails their best.
Maintenance of the extensions
You should have your nail extensions maintained with an infill appointment every 2-3-4 weeks. Leaving it any longer than this may lead to breakages and possible discoloration. It makes difficult for a nail technician to restore your nail extensions and may result in part or full removal in order to achieve a professional finish, costing you unnecessary time and money.
It is strongly recommended to replace nail extensions with a new set in every 3 months or every 6th maintenance appointment to fully cleanse and condition the natural nail and ensure the integrity of the natural nail as well as maintaining a professional finish.
Any queries, concerns, questions no matter how small they are, please do not hesitate to contact me! I am always happy to help!
Breakage of the extensions
Please contact me straight away so I can clean the natural nail and remove the extensions safely, replacing it with a new extension. This will prevent any further discomfort/damage to the natural nail.
If you accidentally pull a nail and it separates from the natural nail, moisture/water can get in and cause a green discoloration as the moisture get trapped. To avoid this contact me to replace the damaged extension.
Gel polish maintenance
To maintain, please book an appointment for around 3 weeks time, to either reapply or remove. Although most clients experience up to 21 days long lasting colour this depends on lifestyle, nail types and many other factors, therefore some clients only achieve 14 days long lasting colour.
Removal requires approx 30 minutes of your time. First wrap the nail an acetone based polish remover for 10 minutes. Then I wipe wraps away from the nail removing the gel polish and if necessary gently buff away any remaining residue. Finally I apply a deep moisturising oil, to re-hydrate the natural nail plate. Or I can file off for half time, buffing and get your new colour.
