Before your treatment

From current consumer habits, one might surmise that the main function of nails is to look good. But nails serve several physiological purposes: They enhance fine touch and fine motor skills and protect the fingers and toes. Doctors also may examine them for indications of serious underlying diseases; for example, clubbed nails (a condition in which fingers or toes thicken and the nails wrap around them) is a classic sign of chronic lung and heart disorders. For those reasons, it's important to keep nails healthy. Ideally, return to your manicurist for regular, professional manicures & pedicures at least every 2-4 weeks for maintenance and further treatments.

Aftercare advice after manicure:

Leave adequate time after your treatment for your nails to dry.

Wear protective gloves when gardening, or doing housework

Use hand cream regularly.

Always use a base coat under polish to prevent staining, and top coat to prevent chipping.

Never use metal files.

Keep nails at a workable length.

Drink plenty of water and eat well.

Do simple hand exercise to keep joints supple.

Avoid harsh and drying soaps

Nail extensions , gel polish and infills

Extensions and gel polishes do not damage your natural nails if your nail tech is qualified.You don’t have to remove extensions or the gel polish to give your natural nails a break as some people may be tempted to think. You may wear extensions or gel polish as long as you want, as long as you are comfortable with them.First the cuticles are pushed back and the nail plate thoroughly cleansed using sanitiser. Once excess cuticle has been removed, the shine is removed from the nails using buffer. An acid free primer is applied to the clean nail-plate, this makes the acrylic or gel stick to the nail bed safely. The acrylic (or builder gel) or gel polish is then applied. As your natural nails grow the extensions on top of them gradually grow out - move towards the free edge of the nail. In 2 or 3 weeks' time part of the new nail not covered by the product becomes quite visible. This is the right time to have a rebalance, also called infills or maintenance.

Aftercare advice:

Use cuticle oil every night (just before going to bed). This will nourish the root of the natural nail and should produce stronger nails.

Use protective gloves for housework, gardening, and DIY etc. as household chemicals will strip nails and skin of natural oils and may affect the look and condition.

Moisturise hands / feet after washing allowing the skin to stay smooth.

Be careful when opening can ring pulls or car doors.

Be careful when using suntan oils or insect repellents, as some contain solvents which may cause damage to the polish.

Do not pick off acrylic or builder gel or gel polish, as this will remove the upper layer of your natural nails and may cause damage.

Have the polish professionally removed followed by a manicure / pedicure to keep nails healthy.


In between pedicures, cut your toenails straight across to trim them. This helps prevent ingrown toenails and keeps them strong. Filing your nails slightly so they're rounded in the center is fine. Before you polish your nails, gently clean underneath them with a manicure stick. If you have diabetes, your health care provider will do regular foot exams and teach you how to care for your feet.Calluses and corns are hardened skin that can crack and hurt if they get too thick. At home, soak your feet in warm water for at least five minutes. Then use a foot file, pumice stone, or exfoliating scrub to remove calluses. Don't go barefoot, either -- it can cause calluses.

When you're pregnant and feel bloated, and even your ankles are swollen, a pedicure may sound heavenly. Good news! It's OK to pamper your feet. Pedicures are safe during pregnancy. Your nails don't absorb the chemicals in nail polish. For pedicures, wear open toe shoes if possible.

Aftercare advice:

Change socks or tights daily.

Apply moisturising lotion daily to the feet after bathing.

Apply talc or special foot powder between the toes to help absorb moisture.

Foot sprays containing peppermint or citrus oil are useful to refresh the feet during the day.


If you are considering moving from shaving or other depilatory methods, you will need to let your hair grow for at least 3 weeks. Wax can only grab hair and NOT stubble so be brave and let it grow. It will be worth it. Ideally you should exfoliate and moisturise the area a few days before your appointment. On the day of your appointment please shower before arrival. If coming straight from work, we can provide fresh wipes for your convenience.

The hair should be NO SHORTER than 5mm – about the length of a single grain of rice.Everyone's hair growth is different. In most cases, you will see minimal re-growth during the first two to three weeks, with a noticeable increase after that. If you want to maintain that ultra smooth feeling, you will need to come in every four weeks, by the fourth wax, you'll find the re-growth dramatically slowed. You may then be able to leave longer gaps between your appointments and the hair will start to grow finer and softer.

Aftercare-for 24-48 hours after treatment:Try not to touch the waxed area with unwashed hands and please do not have a hot shower immediately after.

Do not wear tight fitting clothing, friction or massage on the area.

Also not recommended to go to a sauna, steam room, or sunbed. Avoid to go to swim, exercise or do gym work outs.

Try not to expose the area to the sun, sunlight.

Please do not apply talc, make up, fake-tanning or exfoliate, body sprays, deodorants, perfume, lotions or other products to the area other than those recommended by your therapist.

Get soaps or shower gels on your waxed areas during your first hair free shower - just rinse off with lukewarm water.

Please note: some slight soreness, small bumps and redness are common and perfectly normal temporary reactions, particularly if this is your first wax.
