#1: You are Not Thoroughly Washing and Drying Your Hands.
Your nails have natural oils that can keep your polish from adhering properly. Seriously. I had never even heard of oily nail beds before I joined Jamberry but since then I have learned that this is the number one reason that most people only get day from their manicure – whether using wraps or lacquers. So if you are one of those people, let’s take a closer look at your nail prep. After you wash and dry your hands, do a quick wipe with the Jamberry Nail Prep. Make sure you leave a proper time for the nail bed to completely dry. Any moisture causes the nail bed to expand which can impact the longevity of your manicure. Jamberry product for this step:
#2: You are Filing Your Nails in Different Directions
If you use your file in a sawing motion, you are doing it wrong. Sawing your nails makes them weaker and they will be more susceptible to peeling and breaking. To get the shape you want, gently file your nail in one direction. Work from the outside in on one side and then the other. Since your nails are thinner on the side you want to work toward the middle. Another tip is to hold your file at a 45 degree angle, tilting it so you file from underneath your nail. This allows you to see what you’re doing and can actually prevent you from “over” filing your nail. Jamberry product for this step:
#3: Ignoring Your Cuticles
You need to hydrate your cuticles (with cuticle oils and creams) but you also need to safely remove excess cuticles (with cuticle removers). These two steps are not one and the same. Nor are they interchangeable. First and foremost, the best thing you can do for yourself is drink lots and lots of water. Contrary to popular belief, cuticle oils and cuticle removers are not one and the same—nor can they be used interchangeably. Oils help moisturize, while removers act like an exfoliating treatment for your nail beds. Start by massaging a cuticle remover like Jamberry’s Cuticle Remover Pen that is perfect for your handbag or travel. This helps remove the cuticle from the nail, but it also gets rid of dead skin in a safe and effective manner. Apply a cuticle oil after completing your manicure to add hydration – and then use once or twice a day thereafter.
Some quick tips for maintaining your manicure:
- Use cuticle oil every day.
- Keep your nail length uniform
- Drink lots of water!!!
