Repairing your nails after gel/acrylics

  1. Get the false nails removed properly. Don't rip them off yourself or you run the risk of damaging your real nails forever
  2. Soak your poor damaged nails in moisture. Cuticle oil and nail oil are both good. Dr Hauschka does a fantastic Neem nail oil pen
  3. Buff your nails gently with a special nail buffer to smooth out the worst of the damage.
  4. Bring them back up to a shine with the smooth side of the buffer - see! Much better already!
  5. Finish off with another few drops of cuticle oil and paint them with a super moisturising base coat. I can recommend Jessica Nails Restoration for repairing damage.
