So, you’ve decided to get your nails done – all you need to do is book an appointment, right? Wrong! There are a few things to think about before you get started. In our infographic we look at just a few things to consider for the perfect manicure.
Number one is picking a salon. Statistics show we are happier with a professional manicure. On Beauty Resource you can search for salons that have all the necessary credentials, so you know you’re in safe hands.
The next thing to think about is what shape you want to go for. Do you want a smart square shape, practical short shape or trendy almond shape? Think about what shape will fit your lifestyle best. For example if your job is very hands-on, long talons may not be practical.
Now, what colour to choose? Is your manicure for a special occasion or for every day? Do you want something classic or trendy?
Finally, don’t forget your aftercare! If you want your manicure to last longer, look after it. Reapply a top coat after a couple of weeks, avoid filing the corners too much and use cuticle oil to keep nailbeds healthy.
