Tips to Care for Acrylic Nails
These nails need basic care that one follows for normal nails. Try not to immerse them in water for too long when you wash them. Too much of moisture between the acrylic ail and the natural nail can cause an infection. To protect your acrylic nails make sure you wear rubber gloves to prevent the nails from getting spoilt. Application of acrylic nails and painting a good nail polish takes about 15-20 minutes at the parlour.
A manicure on acrylic nails should ideally be done after a shower. The nails are slightly soft and it becomes easier to remove the dirt that has gotten between your acrylic nails and natural nails.
Applying Nail Paint
Never apply more than two coats of nails paint. More than two coats will not only make it difficult to remove the paint from your acrylic nails but also prevent your nails from breathing. In order to brighten the look of your nail paint, always apply a base coat of nail polish. This also prevents the nails from looking dull.
Acrylic nails when not worn, should also be moisturized on a regular basis. This also prevents the nails from breaking. Moisture keeps the nail shine intact.
Don’t use perfumed lotions or creams on acrylic nails. They may react to the acrylic coating and spoil the nail.
Use of Nail Polish Remover
Don’t use nail polish remover too often on acrylic nails. This makes the nails too dry. Dry acrylic nails are more likely to break.
