Using acrylic nails is part of women’s fashion, since they started in and around the late 20th century. The reason? Acrylic nails provide women an opportunity to artificially extend their own nails for an affordable price.  All the designs and shapes of artificial nails are huge, giving women who wear acrylic nails the ability to flaunt her exclusive individual tastes.

So what's the down side? The down side will be in the home maintenance associated with acrylic nails.  Women of all ages just don’t know what to do when they leave the nail salon.  Lifting, splitting along with fungi are often results from a lack of care in looking after acrylic nails.  As a result, it’s very important to understand how to take care of them.  Listed below are my tips in looking after acrylic nails.

Tips for Looking after Acrylic Nails:

Step 1

Keep your nails dry.  H2o plus acrylic nails do not mix.  This formula will not only cause lifting, it also triggers bacteria plus fungi.  All of these side effects are undesirable.  Just how does one stop bacteria? By continuing to keep your acrylic nails dry.  To do this simply dry thoroughly immediately after all hand washing, a dip in the pool or a bath.  This is the simplest approach to stoping liquid from getting under the acrylic nails and on your natural nails where it may possibly carry out the most harm.

Step 2

Clean both hands by using antibacterial soap. Bacteria will be the downfall for a lot of females that have acrylic nails.  Bacterium which attacks the natural nail bed will discolour and even deteriorate your natural nails producing long standing or perhaps long lasting damage.  Consequently, executing any act which can stop its development is crucial.  For this reason, using antibacterial soap on your hands is the simplest way to give you the most amount of (bacterium) protection.

Step 3

It's critical to make sure you use rubber gloves when washing the dishes and  sweeping the floor.  If you have artificial nails, rubber gloves have the ability to shield your hands as well as your nails and stop any kind of unpleasant mishaps like snags, chips and even splitting.  Consequently don't forget to wear rubber gloves each and every time you do work.  What's more you should keep two or three pairs of rubber gloves in the house at all times

Step 4

Clean your natural nails with alcohol (Not the alcohol you drink :-)  every single day before going to bed.  Swab at the bottom as well as all around your nails by using alcohol.  This will go a long way in cleaning your natural nails from just about any soil as well as bacteria.  Should your nails have started looking a bit unclear from cleaning, you may want to apply a clear polish when you wake up.

Step 5

Take a trip to your favourite nail store to receive repairs following an accident.  When you chip off a portion of your nail or perhaps lift the bed of your nails, visit your nail shop quickly to get your nails fixed. The reason why? Chips and splits will open one or more entrances for fungi, as water can get below one’s own nail plus the acrylic easily. Therefore, it's essential to get the nail repaired quickly.  In addition, a nail technician should be able to suggest to you if you need the acrylic nail to be removed completely and/or look at taking a visit to your doctor.
