The Nacial - A Facial For Your Nails

A gel manicure is a festive party favourite. Quick and chip-proof, gel colour provides smooth, shiny colour that stays put for at least two weeks. Perfect.

But beware; all those glossy gel polish options could play havoc with the health of your toes and talons. They’ll look beautiful from the outside but beneath the bright, bold colour, nails can get ugly if you don’t give them some serious TLC in between treatments. Cue the ‘Nacial’ – the facial for your nails (you guessed it)!

All those glossy gel polish options could play havoc with the health of your toes and talons.

It’s the simple spot of pampering every nail deserves and the good news is that you can do it yourself at home. Regular home ‘Nacials’ should extend the life of your manicures too, as healthy and hydrated nails are less likely to chip or peel.

Give yourself a Nacial at home

You can kick off your new regular nail ritual with some gentle exfoliation – an ordinary body or face exfoliator will do the trick.

Follow up with a generous drench of moisture replenishing cuticle oil (or olive oil if you don’t have any), then slather on the hand cream, making sure you massage well into the cuticles.

Finally, apply a strengthening nail formula to finish, (we rather like Nails Inc Overnight Detox Mask (£15 nailsinc.com) to help reverse and repair gel mani damage while you sleep.
