Strengthen Your Nails
If you have brittle or weak nails, I strongly suggest that you strengthen your nails before getting acrylics.This is because acrylic nails can leave your natural nails weak and susceptible to breaking. Jojoba oil is great for improving the health and strength of your nails.
Make Sure the Tools are Clean
You can get an infection or nail fungus when getting your nails done. For that reason, it’s important that you make sure that the tools used are sterilized.
Additionally, I recommend not allowing them to cut your cuticle. This will decrease your changes of getting an infection. Furthermore, both the Mayo Clinic and American Academy of Dermatology advise against cutting cuticles.
Choosing Your Shape and Length
This is one of the funnest parts of getting your nails done. If you’re new to nail shapes, the oval shape is classic nail shape.
I would also opt for shorter nails, so that you can get used to what it feels like to have longer nails.
Caring for Your Nails
To protect your fancy new nails, make sure you wear gloves whenever you have to clean with chemicals. This is one of the best things you can do to preserve your acrylic nails.
Don’t Forget Cuticle Oil
After your nails have been applied, you may notice your nail tech rubbing some sort of oil on your cuticles. This oil is called cuticle oil.
If you have dry cuticles, cuticle oil will keep them soft. I recommend applying cuticle oil after washing your hands or taking a shower.
I hope these summer and spring nails have given you inspiration for your next nail designs. Simply show the picture of the nails you like to your manicurist or nail technician.
