- Don’t cut your cuticles
During manicures, the cuticle should only be pushed back and a cuticle softner should be used
- Don’t use nails as a tool
There is high probability of damaging them.
- Don’t peel of off your old nail polish
This can peel the protective top layer of the nail with it
- Don’t overdo manicures
Make sure your practitioner is using sterilized instruments and the soaking tub is clean as these sessions can be a source of infections
- Don’t bite your nails!!
