If you’ve just had a gel manicure, congratulations! Your nails are about to look fabulous for the next two weeks. But there’s one important thing you need to do to make sure your nails stay healthy and strong: properly care for them. Here’s how:
First, don’t pick at your gel nails. It’s tempting to start picking at the edges when they start to lift, but that will only damage your nails. If you need to remove the gel, go to a professional.
Second, keep your nails clean and dry. That means no dishwashing, no cleaning the house, and no gardening without gloves.
Third, use a cuticle oil or cream every day. This will help keep your cuticles healthy and prevent them from getting dry and cracked.
Fourth, be careful with your nails. Don’t use them to open cans or bottles, and don’t type on your keyboard with them.
Finally, give your nails a break from gel every few weeks. Go natural, or try a different type of manicure.
By following these simple tips, you can keep your nails healthy and strong – and your gel manicure will last longer.
