Gel Nails – Best Practices

1. Avoid using lotions and creams that contain petroleum jelly/Vaseline or mineral oil as this will cause your nail to lift.
2. Regularly apply cuticle oil to your cuticles and under your nail free edge to avoid nail separation.
3. If gel is accidentally applied to your skin during the process, please do not pick at it. Gently file away to avoid causing lifting.
4. Do not file the top sealant as this is the water barrier for your artificial nail.
5. Have artificial nails removed by a certified nail technician to avoid damage to your natural nails and use after nail care instructions.
6. Any questions or concerns do not hesitate to call your nail technician.
7. If you experience a nail break, cover with a band aide a see your nail technician as soon as possible.
