Nail Service Aftercare Advice

I know you will absolutely LOVE your nails while you are wearing ibd just gel polish and we expect your nails to last flawlessly for up to 14 days if you give them a little care and attention during that time.

We say ibd just gel polish is pretty indestructible with normal wear and tear, which means you have to partner with us by adding a little protection to your nails if doing tough jobs like household cleaning and gardening, hobbies that are rough on your hands or using harsh chemical products without wearing gloves; doing these things without protection can mar your gel polish service.

If you do happen to cause damage to the ibd just gel polish coating and see any of the following signs, we hope you find the advice below helpful.

If something you have done has caused a chip or lifted an edge of your ibd just gel polish manicure, please do NOT pick or pull at the area, as this will cause any damage to increase. Please ring us so that we can assess the nail and decide if a repair is necessary. Please note that repairs are chargeable.

If you are on holiday, please be careful when using suntan oils or insect repellent solutions as many of these products contain solvent oils which will cause major damage to the ibd just gel polish colour coat.
Some of the more delicate ibd just gel colour coats can fade somewhat if one is in chlorinated water followed be excessive sun (remember that chlorine is a bleach and sun intensifies the bleaching action). Dry your hands and nails after swimming and before sunbathing to minimize any colour fading.

Relative to your lifestyle and activity level, your ibd just gel polish will need fortnightly or three weekly maintenance as there will be obvious re-growth. At this point we can either re-apply ibd just gel polish (removing existing ibd just gel polish and re-applying a fresh new colour) or we can remove the ibd just gel polish completely using a professional remover and to give you a express nail tidy so that your natural nails look perfectly groomed. If you want to up-grade we offer to you our “Divine Heated Manicure Treatment”.
