  • Wash your hands after applying fake tan.
  • Wash your hands after applying sunscreen.
  • Avoid S.P.F. products, tinted lotions and hair colour on your new nails as these can discolour the product, always wash hands thoroughly after use or wear gloves.

  • For the best care of your nails, they should be removed carefully. Speak to us for more advice.
  • Do not pick, peel or bite your nails, they are not indestructible.
  • Gelish is designed to create an adhesive bond to the natural nail plate and if picked will cause damage to the natural nail.
  • Use the pads of your fingers rather than your nails for opening car doors, making the bed, opening cans etc.
  • DO NOT file your nails unless absolutely necessary, take care to file gently and finish in a downward stroke.
  • Avoid exposure to harsh cleaning chemicals such as cleaners or acetone based nail polish removers. These can start to breakdown the surface of the product and may cause lifting and staining.

Finally, please take care of your nails! They are not indestructible, but by keeping to these points you can ensure your Gelish Nails will stay as fresh as the day they were done.
