Do gel manicures ruin your nails?
No, if done correctly by your nail technician and are willing to look after your nails at home between visits to the salon. With Biosculpture, nail health is the top priority. It is the first company in its class to have undergone a stringent independent clinical research trial and received a 5 star safety rating.
Signs to look out for that mean you need to be taking better care of the nails
1. A little sensitive to the touch
2. Red points on the middle of the nail bed
3. Brittle and breaking at the sides
There are many ways to prevent these problems and methods to improve these conditions without having to go without the gel manicure.
a). Nails must be kept hydrated, gel does prevent as much oxygen getting to the nails as would be if they weren't covered in gel. Applying vitamin E oil to cubicles daily will improve moisture levels greatly
b). You must wear gloves when using any cleaning products
c). Apply Biosculpture executive base prior to your gel application; a multi-functional conditioning base that will compress the nail keratin to strengthen soft nails. Containing Acetyl Methione, an essential amino-acid derivative that is necessary for the keratin chain synthesis of the nail.
d). Don't ever peel the gel off - it's super tempting to just peel off your gel once it starts to lift/ chip, but please resist. If you can't get into the salon to have it removed you can remove it at home using our removal kit.WHAT TO DO WHEN NAILS ARE BRITTLE AND SENSITIVE
a). Have rehydration treatment performed in the salon before gel manicures (cuticle oil is massaged onto the cuticles, vitamin dose is applied (extr £1.50)
b). Apply executive base under you gel nails
c). Keep the nails short
d). Have lighter colours or just a clear whilst they repair
e). Switch to Biosculpture Evo Oxygenating Gel system - dsigned to improve AIR permeability - the exchange of water vapour and oxygen to and from the NAIL BED, allowing the nail to 'breathe'
