Manicure & Pedicure Aftercare Advice

After Your Manicure or Pedicure

Please read the advice below relevant to your treatment(s). Please note, however, the advice is not a substitute for medical advice, but merely assistance to help you get the best from your treatment(s). If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

For manicures

  • Leave adequate time after your treatment for your nails to dry
  • Wear protective gloves when gardening, or doing housework
  • Use hand cream regularly
  • Always use a base coat under polish to prevent staining, and top coat to prevent chipping
  • Never use metal files
  • Keep nails at a workable length
  • Drink plenty of water and eat well
  • Do simple hand exercise to keep joints supple
  • Avoid harsh and drying soaps

For pedicures

  • For pedicures, wear open toe shoes if possible
  • Change socks or tights daily
  • Apply moisturising lotion daily to the feet after bathing
  • Apply talc or special foot powder between the toes to help absorb moisture
  • Foot sprays containing peppermint or citrus oil are useful to refresh the feet during the day

For both

  • Dry hands and feet thoroughly after washing, especially between toes and fingers
  • Use cuticle cream or oil daily to moisturise dry cuticles
  • Use an acetone-free nail polish remover

Ideally, ensure you receive regular, professional manicures & pedicures at least every 2-4 weeks for maintenance and good nail care.
