Aftercare (hands)

To keep your beautiful fingernails and hands in excellent condition, please follow the guidelines below:

Do not use the nails as tools, treat them as jewels! Remember nail tips or overlays are artificial and will break under pressure;


A cuticle and nail oil should be used daily to condition the cuticle and surrounding nail area to encourage nail growth. This will also help to prevent lifting of the acrylic/flexigel/gel polish around the cuticle and side walls by keeping the nail plate hydrated. That way, products are encouraged to 'flex' with the extra moisture;


Hands should always be protected when cleaning, gardening, decorating and washing up using rubber gloves. Wear protective gloves when applying self-tan or place barrier cream over the nails when having a spray tan to prevent staining;


A non-acetone polish remover should be used to remove any nail enamel. If you choose to apply polish over the acrylic/gel, a base coat must be used first to prevent staining and a non-acetone remover to take it off;


Apply hand cream daily to complement the cuticle oil to prevent lifting and re-hydrate the skin;


You can apply a clear top coat every other day to help maintain the shine of enhanced nails;


Do not file the free edge of the nails as this can result in lifting and chipping of the product(s);


Do not pick or attempt any home removals or repairs. Removing products without the correct equipment or for the correct duration could result in damage to the nail plate;


Return to the salon for regular nail treatments/maintenance to encourage your nails to be healthy, and strong.

Aftercare (feet)

To keep your beautiful toenails and feet in excellent condition, please follow the guidelines below:

A cuticle and nail oil should be used daily to condition the matrix and encourage healthy nail growth;


A non-acetone polish remover should be used to remove nail enamel;


When applying self-tan, place a barrier cream over the nails to prevent staining;


Apply foot cream daily - use generously;


Return to the salon for regular treatment to keep your feet in tip top condition;


File and cut the nails in one direction at all times to prevent ingrown toenails;


Use a foot file at least 3 times a week to prevent the build up of hard skin;


Check the soles of the feet regularly for any foot conditions.

Aftercare (Eyes & Brows)

LASH EXTENSIONS:
Your eyelash cycle is approximately 4 to 12 weeks. Do not be alarmed if some of your lashes fall out quickly (they were most likely at the end of their cycle). The majority of the lash extensions will stay throughout the complete cycle if you follow the guidelines below.


FIRST 24 HOURS:

This is the most crutial stage for ensuring the longevity of your lash extensions. It is normal to lose a few extensions during this time. DO NOT get your lashes wet. Even stream from the shower will affect the quality of the glue bond.


24-48 HOURS:

Avoid prolonged contact with water, such as swimming pools. Avoid any hot and humid environments, such as saunas, steam rooms and jacuzzis. When taking a bath or a shower, avoid using very hot water.


AFTER 48 HOURS:

  • DO NOT use oil based products on the areas around the eyes, particularly waterproof mascara. If you feel it’s necessary to wear mascara, it must be water soluble;
  • Be very gentle with your new lashes, avoid continuous rubbing, tugging or pulling;
  • Do not use eyelash curlers. If you try to curl them, they may break off;
  • Avoid using cotton wool around the eyelash extensions as it may get caught and tug the extensions;
  • Clean daily with LashArt Lash Cleaning Kit (available to purchase at your appointment), to keep your extensions clean and free of dirt, germs and lice;
  • Do not tint or lift the lash extensions. If you wish to tint your natural eyelashes before having extensions, this must be done before application.
