Aftercare Tips After A Manicure And Pedicure
Aftercare is an essential part of having a great manicure or pedicure. It's important to properly take care of your nails after they have been treated so they stay healthy, shiny, and beautiful. Without proper aftercare, your nails could become dry and brittle from over-soaking. Your nail polish could start to peel or crack because you aren't giving your nails enough time to dry. And worst of all, the chemicals used during your manicure and pedicure could become irritating if left on wet nails for too long. To get the best results from your nail salon, follow these tips after your manicure and pedicure:

Soak in warm water.
After you've had your nails painted, soak them in warm water for five to ten minutes. This will help remove any excess polish that may not have dried on your nails. If you don't like the feel of cold water against your freshly painted nails, put a washcloth in the sink along with the warm water.
Use a nail brush to gently scrub your nails.
After your soak, use a soft nail brush to gently scrub your nails under the water. This will help remove any dirt and oils that may be trapped underneath your nail polish.
Let your nails air-dry.
Don't put on another coat of polish or put your hands under hot water after you scrub them. Just let them air-dry naturally so they don't dry out.
Moisturize your hands with lotion or hand cream.
After you've soaked and scrubbed, it's essential to moisturize your nails and hands with a hydrating lotion or hand cream. This will help keep them soft and flexible after you've had them polished.
Use a nail polish remover pad to remove excess polish from your nails gently.
