We had hoped for different news for 2021 but although we can’t open the salon, we’re still here for you. We’ve been asked for lots of advice on self-care and what products to use for the best results. This time, we’ll share how to get salon style nails at home.
Winter plays havoc with our skin, especially our hands. The constant hand washing, sanitising and removal of gloves to adjust the face mask will take a toll on even the toughest of mitts!
Make sure you are using a moisturising hand wash and use lukewarm water to wash your hands. Apply hand cream regularly throughout the day to restore some of the natural oils that harsh chemical sanitisers and hand washes can take away.
It’s also good hand care to look after your cuticles which helps to keeps the nail bed healthy. Just apply a cuticle oil – we recommend Jessica Phenomen Oil – ideally after showering, and gently push back cuticles with an orange stick.
Before you start your manicure, make sure you have everything you need around you so you aren’t fumbling around with wet nails trying to reach your top coat!
Then relax, light a candle and follow our eight easy steps to salon style nails at home!
We have a range of fabulous polish colours in our online shop, as well as base and top coats, oils and creams. Lots of our Jessica polishes are on sale until the end of January too!
Look after your home manicure by wearing gloves when cleaning and moisturising regularly. It won’t last as well a gel manicure and may not have the professional look you get from a visit to The Complete Look but you’ll have had a relaxing time and can show off your hard work on your next zoom get together!
