What if it wasn’t necessary to let your nails rest between manicures?

Every summer the same: we paint our nails more, we have more events, we go on trips more and, all this, makes us go several times and more continuously to our reference aesthetic centers to get semi-permanent or acrylic manicures and pedicures that not only decorate, but also remain pristine over time. The dilemma comes when, between manicures, we feel the need to let our nails rest because we notice them weak, brittle or damaged… But why does this really happen? Should a well-done manicure damage them like this? Are we making a mistake? How to alleviate damage if we notice them more fragile than ever? We have spoken with several experts who are clear about where the problem arises and, what is better, how to solve it. “If the manicure is well done, it is not necessary to let the nails rest between one and the other. Just as we don’t ‘rest’ between dye and hair dye… if they are well done. A good manicure with semi-permanent or gel or acrylic fillers does not require time to ‘clean up’ until the next one if it is done with a correct technique and using suitable products that do not damage it. If the nail is protected and reinforced during the service in the salon and at home between one visit and the next, there is no need for sanitation or rest”, assures Nacho Jové, director of Nails&Friends to S Moda. Druni experts agree with his opinion: «Many times nail damage is caused by removing them at home, using unorthodox methods, or by using very aggressive enamels on damaged nails. If we notice them ugly or weakened, it is not advisable to use any type of enamel or acrylic or gel nails to hide them and we will have to take care of them. But, if the nail is fine, it does not have to be necessary to wait between manicure and manicure, “they tell S Moda. How to know if a manicure is well done The rush or, in most cases, the high prices of a quality treatment, lead us to choose others that are not optimal for the care of our nails and that, without usually knowing it, can make them spoil. How to identify when a manicure can damage the nails or, on the contrary, when it is of quality? Nacho Jové explains it to us clearly. “Do not use a drill or acetone to remove semi-permanent enamel: the drill can remove the top layer of keratin and leave so-called ‘fire grooves’, which are like indentations in the nail. Acetone is aggressive to the nail and can damage the surrounding skin. The cuticles should not be completely removed either, as is done in the so-called ‘Russian manicure’: the cuticle has a function and that is to protect the nail from infections. You can do a clean and elegant manicure just by pushing them and removing the excess”, details the expert. In Druni they agree on the importance of removing the enamel, which is often done in a dirty and dangerous way at home for not going back to the aesthetic center: «The most important thing is to go to centers that have all the permits and in the that quality products are used. It is also essential to remove both semi-permanent nail polish and acrylic or gel nails in a manicure center where they have all the necessary tools. We can also appreciate those gestures that lead us to think that a manicure is well done and respectful of the health of our nails: “You have to use a very sharp pliers to remove excess cuticles and never scissors. It is removed by making a continuous cut and without pulling that can cause injuries and hair loss. In addition, it is essential to work with products that strengthen keratin and hydrate the nail and cuticles”, points out Nacho Jové, who recommends the products from the RESCUERxx and SOLAR OIL range from CND. When to avoid manicures and what to do if they damage the nails Despite everything explained and the clarifications about this universal belief that, in most cases, is a mistake, all the experts agree that there are specific moments in which enamel should be avoided or times when we must realize that our nails need extra care: “There are exceptional cases such as menopause or other types of hormonal changes that can make both hair and nails brittle. Also during oncological processes or when suffering from nail fungus. In that case, you should always go to a specialist and follow their prescriptions”, they indicate from Nails&Friends. If it is not any of these cases, but we do notice weak, yellow or brittle nails, the consistent process recommended by experts is to file the nail as short as possible and apply the recommended strengthening and moisturizing products daily. “Then, we will file the damaged part as the nail grows until it is completely renewed,” says Jové. How to achieve it? They explain it to us from Druni: “What we must do is strengthen the nail by treating it so that it recovers, like when we have a wound on the skin. For that we have both topical products, such as nail strengtheners and cuticle oils (it is also very important to moisturize the cuticles so that the nail is more protected), as well as food supplements that can also help us, in combination with a diet balanced and varied, to improve our nails. If nail polish is used at home, it is advisable, on the other hand, to always apply a first layer of primer to protect the nail”. 4 steps to recover your nails We consulted with one of the most recognized nail care firms how to repair them if they suffer after permanent or certain chemical products. Mavala is a Swiss brand with more than 60 years of experience in hand and nail care and offers us a routine to regain strength and elasticity in the nails: 1. Take care of the cuticles It is important to keep them hydrated and not cut them too much or incorrectly . Use cuticle remover oil to soften and push cuticles and trim easily and properly. 2. Protection and nutrition Nails tend to dry out, so an extra dose of hydration is important. A moisturizing product is essential in all manicures, applying it every night to the root of the nail, performing upward circular massages. 3. Hardening treatment To restore firmness, preventing peeling and breakage. Mavala’s star product is Ciencia K+, which promotes the creation of keratin and has a calming and antibacterial effect. 4. Strengthening treatment Nails are exposed most of the time and are weakened by different factors, so a strengthener will restore hardness and improve hydration.
