Tips to keep your manicure looking the best

  1. Good nail hygiene. Ensure that your manicure tools at home are sharp. Trip your nails straight across, then round the tips with a nail file in a gentle curve.
  2. Moisturize. Keep a little travel size lotion with you as often as you can. Rub the moisturizer into your fingernails and cuticles.
  3. Protect. Apply a nail hardener or good top coat to help strengthen the nails. Especially if the nails have been damaged by acrylic or gel nails.
  4. Biotin. Some research suggests that the nutritional supplement, Biotin, can help brittle nails. (It’s also known to make your hair grow).
  5. Avoid pulling on hangnails. It can be painful if you rip the soft tissue around your hangnail. Instead, clip off the hangnail with a nail nipper tool.
  6. Book a manicure once a month with a professional aesthetician.
  7. Use Cuticle cream. Simple and quick to whip up at home, you can make your own cream to nourish and heal your cuticles.
