Below are a few recommendations to help you maintain the benefits of your treatment. Healthy & strong nails require a good supply of protein and iron, calcium, potassium, Vitamin B and iodine. A well-balanced diet contains all the nutrients essential for good nail health. File nails gently to create shape or fix a snag. Avoid metal files, as they can super-heat the nail and cause damage. When filing, always start at the corners and work toward the center, and file in the same direction. Massage cuticle oil or cream into nails and nail beds each evening before bed. This will hydrate your nails and cuticles while you sleep to help them stay shiny & strong. Buff nails to a healthy pink shine before going to bed. This stimulates the supply of blood to the nails. To maintain the best results, we recommend scheduling your next manicure in 2-4 weeks, and pedicure in the next 4-6 weeks.
