Getting used to your nail enhancements  -  Make sure you book a regular rebalance appointment with your nail technician.  It's a good idea to book a series of appointments at once, try to book the same day, same time every two to three weeks.

Don't bite or pick your nail enhancements, this can lead to weakening or breakage and can cause damage and thinning to your natural nails.

If you notice your nail enhancement lifting, don't pull or pick at it.  But don't ignore it.  Return to the salon as soon as possible; your technician will decide if a repair is necessary.

Nail enhancements may take some time getting used to.  Gradually you will get into the habit of using your hands in a different way and the nail enhancements will stat to feel as natural as your own nails.

Around the House  -  Wear rubber gloves when you wash up or clean.  Detergents and solvents can be harmful to the natural nail plate.

Treat your new nails with care, use them as jewels not tools!  Car doors, kitchen cupboards, ring-pulls and switches can all cause breakages.

When wearing nail enhancements always avoid pulling backwards against the tips of the nails; this could cause injury or breakage.  So don't pull your laundry out of the washer with your nails!

What products should I use on my new enhancements?  -  It's important to use SolarOil daily.  Massage it into your nail enhancements.  It will keep them flexible, prolong their life and dramatically reduce the risk of breakage.

Invest in a hand lotion that will penetrate the skin and your nail enhancements such as SolarSilk (whipped up SolarOil)

When removing nail enamel always use an approved non-acetone remover as recommended by your nail technician.

If you need to remove your nail enhancements you should return to the salon.  Your nail technician will be able to remove the nail enhancements without damaging your natural nail with a professional product remover and give you a manicure to restore moisture and condition to the natural nails.
