Nail Treatments to Maintain Acrylic Nails


Acrylic nails can take hours to have applied, they require a lot of upkeep to stay looking good, and there is no doubt that they look absolutely gorgeous!

These sorts of nails might sound complicated, but they are very much worth the effort and so long as you use the right type of acrylic nail care treatments to keep them properly maintained, you can look forward to beautiful nails over a longer period.

When you get a set of acrylic nails that you have just fallen in love with, it is quite natural to want to wear them for as long as possible.

A long-lasting manicure is not hard to achieve when you have the right tools.

And when you are committed to making sure that you regularly treat your acrylic nails, using the right methods and products, you not only lengthen the lifespan of your nails, but you also end up making sure that your real nails stay healthy.

The best way to maintain your acrylic nails is to start with finding the right nail technician.

A technician who knows what they are doing and who has the right accreditation and experience will be able to apply the best quality nails while also knowing how to take good care of the natural nail as well.

If you start the process out the right way, the nails will stay looking great for longer.

Once you have your nails, this is what you can do to make them last.

Keep your hands moisturised


To elongate the lifespan of your nails, you will want to make sure that your hands don’t dry out.

When you are moisturising your hands, you will be conditioning the skin and in turn your nails and cuticles.

While on the topic of moisturising hands, you will also want to make sure that you avoid using skin peeling treatments or anything else that might end up damaging your acrylics.


Go for those touch-ups


You can’t stop your nails from growing, but you can fill in the blank spaces when the new growth creates gaps between your acrylics and the cuticles. While this might not be a treatment, per se, it is a great way to make sure that your acrylic doesn’t start to chip or flake at the base.

Now you can opt to do it yourself if you have the necessary tools and the right colours, but ideally, you should return to your nail technician to have the touch-up done professionally.


Be gentle


The best treatment you can give your nails if you want them to last a good while is to be gentle with your nails. No trying to open cans, or trying to pry things open. You risk chipping the nails or otherwise damaging them to the extent that you will need to have the application for the nail redone. Besides, having an acrylic nail peel off can be incredibly painful.
