How often should I have a manicure or pedicure?
To maintain soft, silky smooth skin on the hands and feet we would recommend having a manicure or pedicure every 4-6 weeks. This will be the right time for the nails to have grown and need to be reshaped, Dead skin will have occurred but to a manageable level and the cuticles will have regrown.
How long will my polish last?
A normal nail polish can last anywhere between 5-7 days before needing refreshing. However, this is dependent on lifestyle. If your hands are constantly in water or in use, the polish can chip easier and may need refreshing after 3-4 days.
Why should I have a gel polish over a normal polish?
Gel polish is adhered to the nail plate, is dry instantly, chip-resistant and stronger than your average nail polish. It lasts for around 14 days, depending on the nail type, and will stay fresh with a high gloss finish for the duration. Again lifestyle can affect the longevity of the polish but it will last longer than a normal polish. The main beneficial feature is that once the polish has been cured during the treatment it is dry and you can carry on as normal. There is no hanging around time or fear of smudging.
Should I be looking after my hands and feet at home?
We would always recommend that you are using a hand cream and foot cream daily. We use these parts of a body every day, and they need just as much TLC as the rest of our bodies. A cream with salicylic acid included in the ingredients is ideal to nourish and moisturise, gently exfoliate to keep hard skin away and help maintain cuticle growth. Exfoliating your hands and feet regularly will allow the cream you use to absorb better and deeper into the skin giving full benefit. We recommend our Aenea Fruit Acid Exfoliator and our Vitamin D Body Lotion.
What shape should I chose for my nails?
The most common shape chosen for the nails is Sqouval. This is a square shape with rounded edges and withstands everyday life without a lot of breakage.
Round or oval nails are also popular, giving a slightly more elongated and feminine look to the hands. However, the amount of likely breakage from everyday life is higher.
Pointed nails are more of a fashion statement than a practicality. It is a more fragile nail shape and is more prone to breakage, but great for a special occasion or desired look.
