Pre-treatment Advice for Acrylic/Gel Polished Nails
Contra indications to Acrylic/Gel Polished Nails
What is a contra indication?
A contra-indication is a condition that may prevent or restrict a treatment. Examples of these are:
- Blood thinning medications
- Severe eczema/psoriasis on hand
- Broken bones of the hand or fingers
- Recent scar tissue (within 6 months)
- To keep your nails in optimum condition, please read the following:
- Wear rubber gloves for wet or dirty jobs. Buy them in a size that fits and keep them in the rooms you need them so you don’t forget!
- DO NOT remove enhancements yourself. You WILL damage your own nails
- Do not pick or chew your nails!
- Do not use your nails as tools. Open tins and cans with a spoon if they have a ringpull.
- Do not use your nails to open boxes and packages, or scrape stickers off with them!
- Do not leave your appointment longer than 3 weeks. The acrylic/gel may lift slightly, enabling water to get trapped between the nail plate and the covering
- Your nails do not BREATH. They do not have lungs and are made from layers of dead, keratinized cells.
- Have your nails a wearable/manageable length.
