Manicure Aftercare Advice

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

  • Return to your manicurist for regular, professional manicures at least every 2-4 weeks for maintenance and further treatments
