Have you ever had a problem keeping your fingernails healthy? There would always be a time when you want to have long and healthy fingernails but you suddenly end up breaking it. If you have been settling for short and unhealthy fingernails all these years, then you probably have to do something about it. You should not suffer. There is always a solution to your problems, even with your nails.
In fact, we will share a couple of tips that can help you maintain healthy nails before you apply your Semipermanentes or semi-permanent manicure. This way, you can make it last longer while maintaining healthy nails under it.
Sterilized Manicure Tools.
Whether you are doing your manicure at home or have it done at a nail salon, it is very important that the tools used are sterilized. If you are having it done by someone else, be proactive. If you do not see any disinfecting tools around, do not be afraid to ask. Also, do not let your manicurist push your cuticle or cut it too much because it can lead to infection.
Consider Semi-Permanent Manicure.
Tradition nail manicure is okay, but if you do not have the time in the world to regularly go to your manicurist to have your nails done, then consider semi-permanent manicure because it lasts longer than the traditional method. Do not leave your nails unmaintained, especially if you cannot do it on your own. There is a solution and that is the semi-permanent manicure.
Having beautiful nails is not enough. You need to make sure that you have healthy nails as well. Before having your semi-permanent manicure done, apply a good amount of sunscreen. Remember that your nails will be placed under the UV lamp to get it dried. You need to protect not only your nails but also your skin. So you have to make sure that you applied a sunscreen with at least SPF30 or higher.
Stop Picking On Your Nail Polish!
If you are wearing regular nail polish, never pick on them. If the color starts to come off, use nail tools to remove it. If you can, make an appointment with your manicurist to have it done for you. This is why it is better to have semi-permanent nails instead. They last longer and will save you time from going to your manicurist too often. Also, semi-permanent nails rarely chip off.
If you want to remove your nail polish but you do not have the time to go to your manicurist just yet, make sure that you use acetone when taking them off. But remember, only soak your fingertips into the acetone and not your entire hands. This is to protect your skin around your nails. Or better yet, just use a cotton ball to remove the polish.
Taking care of your nails before and after your semi-permanent manicure is not that complicated. As long as you know the basics, you are good. Remember that nail polish can hide your fingernails, but you have to do your best to keep them healthy too.
