Apply Nourish Cuticle Oil twice a day and more importantly underneath the free edge - It is enriched with oils to rehydrate and condition the natural nail plate and will NOT cause any lifting to your product. Nourish cuticle oil is available to purchase from Natalie’s Nails.
Whenever you are washing up or gardening, wear gloves.
Wear gloves when applying fake tan.
Wash your hands after applying sunscreen.
Avoid S.P.F. Products, tinted lotions and hair colour on your new nails as these can discolour the product, always wash hands thoroughly after use or wear gloves.
If you have caught or broken a nail, please make an appointment for a repair with Natalie’s Nails.
Your nails have been applied by a professional, for the best care they should also be removed by a professional. If you do decide to remove your nails yourself, please ask for a removal kit and instructions.
Do not pick, peel or bite your nails, they are not indestructible. Gelish is designed to create an adhesive bond to the natural plate and if picked will cause damage to the natural nail.
Book your next maintenance appointment for 2-3 weeks time to avoid disappointment.
Use the pads of your fingers rather than your nails for opening car doors, making the bed, etc.
If wearing a French or pale colour, please be aware then using tanning products, you should wear gloves to prevent staining of the colour.
DO NOT file your nails unless absolutely necessary, take care to file gently and finish in a downward stroke.
Avoid exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals such as cleaners or acetone based nail removers. These can start to break down the surface of Gelish and may cause lifting and staining.
Finally, take care of your nails! They are not indestructible, but by keeping to these points you can ensure your Gelish/GHG or Acrylic will stay as fresh as the day it was done!
