Go30 nails purple wedding by Active Skin Solutions Beauty SalonThe manicure industry is has been buzzing shellac nails for a while now – have you tried them? Shellac nails are a more durable option.

What are shellac nails?

This is a type of nail treatment that is sometimes known as gel manicure. It can last for a month without chips, breaks or the need to be recoated, when looked after correctly. Does this sound too good to be true to you? Well, shellac nails are all this and more!

Start with healthy nails

Shellac nails can be an excellent option for durable nails but you need to start with a healthy nails. If your cuticles and fingernail beds are peeling down, don’t use shellac nails yet, or the finish result will not as long as it should be. It is best if you treat your nail problem first before having shellac nails applied.

When having applying shellac nails, there are things you need to know.

Shellac gel nail last up to a month

Did you know that the best thing about shellac nail is its longevity? They can actually last up to a month! This is because polish is cured with UV light and set hard before you leave the salon.

Practice nail care at home

Yes, shellac nails last longer but it is important that you know how to do some basic nail care at home as it is required to keep your nails healthy and your polish looking good. For example, applying cuticle oil twice a day will keep your nails healthy underneath the pretty colour! Although shellacs are hard they are still prone to damage if you are rough on them, garden can be particular bad for shellacs. This is not to say don’t garden but make sure you wear soft cotton gloves inside your gardening gloves and just be aware if you are doing lots of gardening the life of your shellacs will probably be reduced.

Remove gel polish carefully

When shellac nail starts to break or chip, don’t be tempted to tear or peel it yourself because you might peel away the top layer of your nail. Go back to the salon and have them soaked off to protect your natural nails.

How to take care of your nails?

nailsDid you know that nail care is an important part of personal grooming?

Gorgeous and well maintained nails can make you feel good about yourself. However, many of us tend to neglect the importance of nail care. Taking care of your nails is not hard at all. In fact, some people enjoy it.

Of course, there’s an option of going to the nail salon so you can get a proper manicure and pedicure. Apart from your regular visits to your nail salon, you can keep your nails in tip-top shape by maintaining a simple and easy nail care routine that you can follow:

  • Wear rubber gloves. When doing the dishes, don’t forget to wear rubber gloves. The chemicals you use can be harsh on your hands and nails. They can make your nails brittle and weak. Always wear your gloves when cleaning or when washing the dishes.
  • Nail cream. Your regular hand cream is not enough – you have to use a nail cream that suits your nails best. There are many nail creams out in the market today; you’re sure to find the perfect one for you.
  • Go easy on the nail polish. You might be tempted to change your nail colour every time you go out – but don’t! Colourful nails are cool but using too much nail polish can damage your nails. Nail polishes contain acetone which makes your nail soft. When using a nail polish, be sure to invest in a high quality polish ask for advice if you are unsure about the quality of your current nail polish.
  • Regularly trim and file your nails. There’s no reason to have extremely long nails. It’s not only unpractical, but it can also get in the way of your daily lifestyle. Ever tried removing contact lenses with really long nails or something as simple as doing up buttons?? Plus, longer nails are more prone to breaking.
  • Allow your nails to breathe freely. Schedule your nail session. Maintain a healthy gap in between your next coat of nail varnish – even if you can go for a week without a nail polish once in a while.

Reasons why your nails are discoloured?

nailsMany of us enjoy having a manicure and or pedicure. It’s the easiest way to make us feel relaxed and get pampered. Some may enjoy getting a new nail polish every week. You can visit your nail salon as often as you wish, but like many others, you may notice your nails starting to become discoloured and look a bit yellowish.

Why are my nails discoloured?

Discolouration can appear for different reasons. One of the main reasons is that your nail isn’treceiving enough air. When using nail polish, it can penetrate the layers of keratin on the nail itself. This can lead to the discolouration of your nails. Nail polish sitting on your nails for an extended period of time can cause nail discolouration.

Another reason includes fungus. This may require medical attention. The fungus can affect the appearance of your nails. If you’re not sure – see your doctor.

Getting pretty nails is the one thing only women can appreciate. When it comes to maintaining your nails, you don’t have to visit your salon every time.

How often should I get a manicure then?

In general, 3- 4 week spacing is recommended. However, the frequency of changing your nail polish depends on several factors which include:

  • Your lifestyle. If you have an active lifestyle, perhaps you prefer to have shorter nails. Shorter nails require less maintenance, as you don’t need to worry so much about breakages.
  • Your nail growth. The faster your nail grows, the more you’ll need manicure maintenance.
  • Type of nails, natural, prescription, shellacs
  • Your preference.No doubt, if there’s a party coming up – you’ll want your nails looking nice and pretty. The frequency of getting a manicure depends on your very own needs and wants.

5 nail polish mistakes you should know!

Pretty Pink Nails by Active Skin Solutions Beauty SalonGetting your nails done can be easy book your appointment today.

If you don’t want to have your nails done profressionally here are some some common mistakes that people make that can ruin your nails perfect finish and ho to avoid them.

Here are the top 5 nail polish mistakes you should know.

1.Taking a hot shower after applying a polish

Never shower immediately after applying polish. Exposing the polish to heat can cause it to bubble or smudge. Wait an hour or so after a manicure before you take that relaxing shower.

2.Going to bed after a polish

Although nails may appear dry after 20-30 minutes, it really takes up to 24 hours before the polish is fully dry.  If it is late at night and you need to get to bed, wait for the polish to start setting and then run cold water over your hands for about 3 minutes. It can help the polish set a lot faster.

3.Skipping the topcoat

It may seem like a time saver, especially if you are in a hurry but it can cut down on the shiny finish of your nails and can also shorten the life of your polish. For an even longer nail polish life span, apply a new layer of topcoat every other day.

4.Skipping base coat

A base coat smooths the surface of your nail for that flawless finish. It can also prevent the pigments of the nail polish from staining your nails. It’s an extra step but totally worth it!

5.Using one stroke to apply nail polish

One stroke alone cannot cover your entire nail. It’s difficult to get into your nails sidewalls and the cuticle area,but missing these areas can make your nails look unfinished. Apply nail polish to your nails in 3 or 4 strokes. Start in the centre near the cuticle, swipe to the right side, return to the starting point, swipe to the left side, return to the centre and swipe down the middle.

Five nail polish mistakes you should know!

Knowing these mistakes can help you get your nails done right the first time.

Now you can do it yourself but for a real pampering and a lot less fuss get a professional to do it for you.
