When you walk into our nail salon & spa, the warm, friendly ambiance pulls you in. We want to make our client’s hands, feet, and nails look, feel, and function the best.
ADVICE 1: EAT A HEALTHY DIET.
As with most aspects of our bodies, we get the best results from eating a well-balanced, vitamin-rich diet. Vitamin deficiencies show up quickly as weakened, brittle fingernails or pits in the nail. A top-notch nail salon is not the only way to keep your nails looking nice. There are so many ways to keep your nails neat and pretty, and one of them is eating a healthy diet!
ADVICE 2: HAVE A GOOD NAIL CARE ROUTINE.
Step 1: Keep Your Natural Nails Trimmed
If you’ve ever had long nails, then you’ve almost certainly suffered from a broken nail at some point. Broken nails are painful, they’re also bothersome! The only solution I’ve found to broken nails is to prevent them by keeping my nails well-trimmed. You know the length your nails can withstand; there’s no need to grow them out longer just to suffer the inevitable painful break while you’re trying to wash the dishes.
Step 2: Moisturize Your Cuticles
While your fingernails themselves may not need moisture, your fingertips and cuticles do. The cuticle is a naturally tough piece of skin, but it is prone to cracking and drying out painfully when it isn’t kept well moisturized.
Step 3: File Your Nails The Right Way
Rough nail files do more harm than good to fingernails and should be replaced with very fine nail files. Also, nails should only be filed in one direction, as sawing back and forth weakens the nail.
Step 4: Try Buffing
Buffing is the process of polishing your fingernails until they shine. Looking at my nails right now, I can see they are a little dull and not particularly smooth. That’s their natural state, and it usually works just fine for me. However, if you want a more professional or smooth look, using a nail buffer is worth a try. Use caution, though, because too much buffing undermines the natural strength of your nail.
Step 5: Try Natural, Organic Nail Polishes
Sometimes you just want to paint your nails. For special events, or if nail color is just your thing, there are less-harmful options available. There are several water-based nail enamels on the market without the harmful chemicals of traditional nail polish. And bonus: they come off with water or simple alcohol!
Step 6: Visit A High-Quality Nail Salon
I know so many professional nail salons near me that have a skillful team of manicurists, as well as the best nail products. I believe that you can find some good nail places near you, too. The nail salons will not only clean and pamper your nails (both fingernails and toenails), but they will also give you beautiful nail art designs whenever you need to enhance your manicure for any of your special events.
Step 7: Maintain Your New Manicure In A Proper Way
Have you ever walked out of the nail salon with a fresh manicure only to have chipped nails by the end of the day? If so, I feel your pain. Like it or not, everyone who has ever painted their nails has experienced a short-lived manicure, trust me. If you already make it a point to be diligent with your nail care to no avail, you’re probably wondering what it takes to get long-lasting nail polish. Luckily, there are plenty of ways to help your manicure go the distance.
Step 8: Know When to Leave Your Nails Alone
While upkeep and care for your nails are important, sometimes it is best to leave them alone. Biting your nails, picking at them, pulling at hangnails – all of those things will lead to painful problems.
Every time you come to our spa, you will always leave extremely satisfied and happy. The nail salon is neat and clean. The workers are super friendly. Welcome to visit and have a pampered day at Glam Nails & Spa. Our goal is to leave each client feeling stress-free and rejuvenated by the end of your visit.
