GEL MANICURE AFTERCARE -
- Never pick or peel at Gel, as this can cause damage to the natural nail bed.
- Wear rubber gloves when washing or doing cleaning jobs. Gel polish can absorb bleaches and detergents and this will cause polish to lift.
- Use cuticle oil at least once a day to keep your cuticles moisturized and healthy. (Especially at night before going to bed.) This can be purchased from Beauty Emergency for $5, a travel size roll on or $10 for regular bottle.
- Chlorine may lift Gelish in extreme cases. To lessen the chance of this, wait 24 hours after application before swimming, and always rinse your hands thoroughly to remove chlorine.
- Sun tan cream and insect repellent may affect polish, so we recommend using gloves to apply.
- Filing your nails will break the seal of the polish and cause premature lifting. If filing is necessary, paint the edge of the filed nail using clear nail polish.
- If you break a nail, the product seal will be broken and your Gel manicure will more than likely lift. File and then paint the edge with clear polish or alternatively have Beauty Emergency repair/nail fix.
GEL POLISH / ACRYLIC / GEL X - REMOVAL
- Buff the gel top coat.
- Soak both hands at a time in 100% pure acetone in a glass bowl, place another bowl underneath with warm-hot water, and a towel over top.
- After 10-15 minutes(gel polish) the Gel/Acrylic will lift from the natural nail. (acrylics take 30 mins)
- Any residue may be removed by gently pushing off old gel with an orange wood stick or cuticle pusher.
- Lightly buff nails, wash your hands and apply cuticle oil.
- Remember to treat your nails like jewels not tools, to ensure a long lasting Gel manicured hands/Acrylics/Gel X.
