Nails Alert⚠Most common mistakes with gel polish will lead to chipping & peeling!
Doing your manicure is quite fun, but it's quite frustrating to chip a nice manicure. Gel polishes are durable compared to most other regular polishes, so they are always my go-to products. However, if you keep making some mistakes, you can't let your gel manicures last from two to three weeks without chipping or peeling, and some of them even harm your health. ❌Non-stop gel manicures Applying and removing gel nail polish wears and tears your nails, leading to breakage and dehydrate your nails, so it's better to avoid using gel polishes frequently and give your nails a rest from being suffocated. ❌Leaving gel polish on for far too long I admire the long durability of gel polishes, but it is suggested to remove your gel manicure after 3 weeks. Otherwise, it will damage your cuticles and nail beds. What's more, as for overextending gel manicures, there's also a risk of being infected with bacteria apart from fragile nails. ❌Removing an old gel manicure yourself Most people like to remove their old manicures themselves, but nail experts' advice is turning to salon workers. Without the professional nail tools, simply getting rid of old gel manicures are likely to cause breakage and make your nails dry and brittle. If you find it difficult to go to the salon while under quarantine, I recommend investing in a high-quality gel nail polish kit. I've been usingRED CARPET MANICURE - Gel Polish Removal Kit myself. This kit includes a buffer, liquid remover, foil wrap, and an orangewood stick, and you can get everything you need to remove gel polish safely all at once! ❌Not using cuticle oils Healthy nails make your gel manicures last longer and look better. However, some chemical ingredients inside gel nail polishes can dry out your nails. In order to fight nail dryness, cuticle oils are a MUST-HAVE! Only dropping a few of cuticle oils will make a huge difference in nail nourishment. essie - Apricot Cuticle Oil is my favorite one, which is super nourishing and lightweight. I like to keep that at hand and hydrate my nails whenever I want to lol. Believe me or not, putting it in your nail routine can make a HUGE difference! What're your nail tips? Time for you to share!
