How to take care of gel nails at home?
Unfortunately in most of the countries nail salons had to close. This means that your clients are at home and in a couple of days or weeks they will face outgrown gel nails that most definitely will need some extra love and care.
Sandrine, International Trainer at ProNails HQ, has prepared a video that will help you inform your clients how to look after their gel nails during this difficult period.
You can share this video on your own social media to help your clients. It's crucial that you educate them to correctly and safely file or remove their gel nails.

How to TAKE CARE your gel nails at home?
You will need to have these products at home to work on your gel nails:
- Hand sanitizer
- A soft grit file (for example: Master File 240)
- Nail serum to nourish your natural nail
- Vitamina Cuticle Oil to daily nourish your cuticles
- Optional: LongWear Start, Colour and Finish to cover up your outgrowth
Never use a nail clipper on your gel nails. This will cause breakage of the gel and result in broken and lifted nails!
TIP from Sandrine: start with your most difficult hand first. And make sure your nails are facing you as they would your nail stylist.
You will shorten your nails first until the desired length and than you will proceed to shape. When you are done shaping all of your nails, apply nail serum to your natural nail to nourish and strengthen your natural nail. Finish of with your daily dose of Vitamina Cuticle Oil and massage this into your cuticle.
If you don't like to see your outgrowth, cover it with a darker colour of LongWear. A darker colour will help you more easily cover up any gel colour you have on your nails. Start with LongWear Start, apply 2 coats of colour. Wait 2 minutes and apply the LongWear Finish for a perfect result.
Repeat this step of shortening your nails after a couple of days. This is the best way to maintain your gel nails during this exceptional period. Let them grow out instead of picking and tearing of the complete gel from your nails. This will damage your nails!
