Preparation is Key for A Perfect Gel Manicure

Unknown

Everyone loves the durability and shine that a gel manicure provides.One of the most important key factors to achieve a long lasting polish, is the preparation that thenail technician does on your nails. This process can be achieved without damaged to the nail itself.

You want to have a clean nail surface with no dead skin or oil on the nail. Dead skin can be removed by a proper cuticle trimming. It is important that the nail technician knows what dead skin is and removes it without cutting skin that is alive.

A light buff is all that is needed to remove the oil from the top of the nail. This helps the gel polish adhere properly to the nail for long lasting results.

At Adrienne Michelle’s Salon and Spa in Jacksonville we look at each client’s nails individually to determine what is needed to achieve the best results. We never use a drill, and know the difference between dead and alive cuticle and skin. Most of all we strive to always maintain the cleanest work areas and use proper cleaning procedures so that all of our instruments are sterilized and clean for each client. This is what makes all our client’s leave feeling pampered and with the perfect gel manicure.
