I know you will absolutely love your nails and I expect your nails to last flawlessly for at least 14 days as long as you give them a little care and attention during that time.
We say our gel polish and enhancements are pretty indestructible with normal wear and tear, which means you have to partner with us by adding a little protection to your nails if doing tough jobs like household cleaning and gardening, hobbies that are rough on your hands, or using harsh chemical products without wearing gloves; doing these things without protection can mar your service.
If you do happen to cause some damage to the coating and see any of the following signs, we hope you find the advice below helpful.
If lifting or pealing is noticed, please do NOT pick or pull at the lifted area, as this will cause the lifting to increase and could even damage the natural nail. Please call me so that i can assess the nail and decide if a repair is necessary. Also please note that repairs are subject to a charge after 24 hours.
If you are on vacation, please be careful when using suntan lotion or insect repellent solutions as many of these products contain DEET which will cause major damage to the color coat.
Please use Dadi Oil at least twice a day (especially at night before going to bed). I recommend Dadi oil as it is made to be used with all types of nail coatings. You may buy this at the salon at any time in various sizes. Regularly using Dadi Oil will substantially prolong the life of your nail coatings and keep your natural nails and the skin surrounding them healthy, moisturized, and flexible.
Relative to your lifestyle and activity level, your nails will need two or three week maintenance as there will be obvious re-growth. At this point, you will need to book either a removal, another gel polish service or a maintenance appointment depending on the type of nail coating you are wearing. If you do decide you want to remove your nail coatings, please call me and let me do it safely for you in the salon. Incorrect removal at home may damage the surface of your nails. I will be able to remove them professionally and give you a mini-manicure so that your natural nails look perfect.
