Benefits of a Manicure

Benefits of a Manicure

A manicure is not only a pleasure to have done but has many benefits for your skin and nails. Using high quality products with top quality ingredients such as the ultra hydrating Hyaluronic acid, natural oils from macadamia nuts or rich proteins from soy bean and pearls,  provides the skin with hydration – soothing rough and hard working hands and providing a smoother look with clarity to the skin. This prevents hang nails and cracks appearing especially around the nail itself. Many of our clients work hard, with their hands going through a variety of ”traumas” each day – from styling and cleaning products to harsh temperature changes and jobs like gardening or constant exposure to water – All of this can lead to sore and dry hands that look a little untidy. Keeping on top of the health of your hands and nails by tidying any split end keeps nail growing healthy and strong – Just like your hair and means that any polish applied has a clean finish.

Aftercare Tips and Advise

Aftercare Tips and Advise

We constantly strive to produce first class amazing treatments that not only give you great pleasure during your treatment but provide noticeable results. For many clients manicures and pedicures are a luxurious treat often given as a present. To help maintain and further enhance the results we have listed below some tips that will help you achieve this. Products mentioned are available at the main reception or simply ask your therapist who will be happy to help you choose suitable products.

Professional nail polish takes 7 hours to fully dry. We do however use a spritz dry to speed this process giving the polish a dry ‘’shell’’. The paint will normally be touch dry within the hour – but care must be taken. The longer the polish is left to dry the better the final result will be.

Due to continuous use of our hands, nail polish is not guaranteed against chipping. We only ever use top professional brands that provide more longevity than those purchased on the high street. However, if you do smudge or chip your nail polish within 24 hours of your treatment we will re-paint the nail free of charge. Thereafter a charge will apply.

To prevent chipping please wear gloves for all household chores and gardening etc. A scour on a sponge is not too dissimilar to the grit of a nail file!

Common causes of chipping include doing up buttons, opening cans of drink or food, typing or even grabbing things (such as wet jeans) out of the washing machine! Please remember it is easy to chip your nails and extra care should be taken during tasks like these, it’s handy to use a spoon as a lever to open cans, or to type with the finger pads rather than tips of the nails. Simple changes will make a big difference to the longevity of your manicure.

For clients wanting their polish to last beyond the time of traditional polish, we offer a vast range of Gel Polish. This is applied in the same way as a traditional polish but cured under a UV light. This offers many advantages: you will leave the salon with completely dry nails, there is no smudging – guaranteed, and the gloss finish will last until professionally removed. If you have very weak nails that are prone to breakages ask your therapist about overlays and extensions for perfect nails every day!

Hand cream should be applied throughout the day to maintain hydration. We offer a selection of award winning products from the CND Spa range including several hand creams for different skin types. Keeping the nails properly hydrated gives them flexibility and will maintain the fresh look of a manicure.

Dry cuticles are unsightly and spoil the look of your freshly painted nails. Apply a professional serum three times each day until the hydration level is back to normal. Thereafter this can easily be maintained by just one application a day, preferably before bed. Hydrating the nails corrects many common issues such as torn cuticles (hang nails), nail flaking or peeling and brittleness/snapping. We recommend CND Spa nail serum and hand cream.

Daily use of our hands can reduce the shine of a non UV top coat. By applying a clear gloss topcoat to your painted nails 2 days after your treatment will ensure the shine remains and also prolongs the life of the colour. Be sure to coat the free edge (tip) of your nails as this can be the cause of most lifting and chipping.
