Nail

Aftercare

Now you have beautiful nails, you'll need to follow these simple steps to keep them that way.

 

 - Apply Cuticle Oil twice a day.  Cuticle Oil is available to purchase at the studio for £10.00.

 

 - Whenever you are washing up or gardening wear gloves.

 

 - Wear gloves when applying fake tan.

 

 - Wash your hands after applying sunscreen.

 

 - Avoid SPF products, tinted lotions and hair colour on your new nails as these can discolour the product, always wash your hands thoroughly after use or wear gloves.

 

 - If you have caught or broken a nail, please make an appointment for a repair. Nail repairs start from £7.00.

 

 - Your nails have been applied by a professional, for the best care they should be removed by a professional. If you decide to remove your nails yourself, please purchase a removal kit from the studio. Removal Kits £15.00.

 

 - Do not pick, peel or bite your nails, they are not indestructible. Magpie Gel Colour is designed to create an adhesive bond to the natural nail plate and if picked will cause damage to your natural nail.

 

 - Book your maintenance appointment for 2-3 weeks time to avoid disappointment.

 

 - Use the pads of your fingers rather than your nails for opening car doors, making the bed, etc.

 

 - If wearing a French or pale colour please be aware when using tanning products you should wear gloves to prevent staining of the colour.

 

 - Avoid exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals such as cleaners or acetone based nail polish removers. These can start to break down the surface of Magpie Gel Colour and may cause lifting & staining.
