Get the Most Out of Your Manicure with these Helpful Hints:

Begin with healthy nails. Starting your Kelowna manicure off with an already healthy nail bed will ensure a strong, beautiful and lustrous manicure that lasts for weeks. A great way to ensure that your nails are healthy is to take nail and bone building vitamins and minerals to ensure optimal bone strength. Some of these include essential fats such as omega-3s and calcium. Try incorporating coconut oil, olive oil, nuts and seeds into your diet. Salmon is very high in omega-3 fats which are excellent in building strong bones and nails and make your skin and hair healthy too!

Keep cuticles at bay. If you notice that the cuticles on your nail bed are dry and peeling, consider moisturizing for a few days prior to your manicure. We always recommend that our Kelowna clients moisturize often, as this avoids having to cut cuticles which often encourages them to grow. Keeping your nail beds moisturized is the best way to keep cuticles and bay and to keep your skin and nails looking healthy and happy. Another great way to remedy dry cuticles is to apply cuticle oil twice a day. This can be done simply at home with olive oil, or you can ask one of our nail technicians about the products that we sell at our salon for this purpose.

Since the gel in Shellac polish is porous, we always suggest that our Kelowna clients protect their hands and nails while using cleaning products or strong chemicals by wearing gloves. This is a cheap and easy solution that will keep your manicure lasting as long as possible while also keeping the skin on your hands moisturized and healthy.
