Q. How can I prevent peeling, breaking, and splitting?
A. Exposure to water is most often the culprit here- surprisingly, the more you soak, the drier the nail becomes, weakening over time. Detergents in soaps, household cleansers, and some nail polish removers can also have adverse effects. Prevent further damage by wearing gloves during chores. After hand-washing, apply a rich moisturizer to nails to replace the natural oils that water washes away. Using a polish or a cuticle oil (such as CND Solar Oil) will provide a protective shield.

Q. What do those tiny white marks mean?
A. It’s a myth that these flecks indicate a vitamin deficiency. More likely, they’re the result of a minor injury and will disappear as the nail grows. But watch out for dark marks. If you recently hurt your hand (say in a car door), don’t worry. But if not, and you see a black, brown, or purple band on your nail, it could be a sign of skin cancer. See a doctor right away.

Q. What do I do if I have Athlete’s feet?
A. Please call a physician.

Q. How often do I need a manicure?
A. We recommend a weekly manicure.

Q. What does paraffin do for your skin and nails?
A. Paraffin has intensive moisture therapy that nourishes skin and cuticles. The penetrating heat increases circulation, soothes aching joints and relaxes stiff muscles.

Q. Do you recommend gel or acrylic nails?
A. We only do gel nails because the protein helps your nails, they look more natural and the process is odorless.

Q. What kind of emery board?
A. Avoid rough emery boards. Those old-fashioned orange emery boards are too harsh for nails, causing small fissures and cracks that lead to breakage and tears. File nails with a smooth, fine file and don’t saw back and forth. Instead, file in one direction only, and do it slowly and evenly to reduce risk of breakage.

-Dos & Don’ts

Don’t share your nail file.
Resist the urge to let anyone- even a relative- use your emery board. This tool is a porous germ-trapper. Keep yours to yourself, and replace it often.
Do wear the right shoe size.
Do moisturize Daily.
Nails need to be hydrated, since most problems crop up when they’re parched. Dry nails can crack, peel, and become brittle. Additionally, dehydrated cuticles not only look ragged but also can turn into painful and infected hangnails. The best moisturizers are thick, like Cuccio Milk & Honey Butter Blend.
Don’t go barefoot.
