Our fingernails appear so tough, it's easy to forget they need care and protection, too. For example, we are all aware how damaging the sun can be to our skin, but did you know it can damage your nails?
If you've noticed ridges appearing in your nails, that's probably sun damage. And if you live on the Gold Coast, it's probably something to be aware of.
But don't panic; sun damaged nails are repairable. And the funny thing is, our nails grow faster in summer, so it won't take long to get them looking great again.
Use our handy online booking system to arrange a manicure and you'll be well on your way to looking fabulous again.
Many nail polishes contain UV absorbers these days, so ask your nail technician what he or she recommends. And definitely start using sunscreen on your hands and nails whenever you go outside.
Professional nail technicians can answer many of your questions and offer valuable advice to keep your hands and nails looking great. For example, some gel nails will fade after prolonged exposure to sun.
Other nail treatments can be affected by the chemicals used in pools and spas, or by the use of mosquito spray.
So if you live on the Gold Coast, where sun, sea and swimming are part of everyday life, the right advice will keep your nails shiny and healthy all summer long.
If outdoor life prohibits you from growing your nails long, don't forget it's easy to get that look with false nails and nail extensions. So, if you've got a hot date coming up, and simply must have tantalizing talons to complete your outfit, simply use BookWell to make an appointment.
Remember, with the wide range of nail treatments and products around these days, you can change your look as often as you wish. Isn't life just grand!
