Rhonda's Nail Rules

  • Treat your nails as jewels, not tools.
  • Wear gloves when cleaning or gardening.
  • Do not pick acrylic nails off, have them soaked off. When you pick them off, you take a layer of your natural nail with the acrylic, this makes your natural nail very weak. Acrylic does not ruin your nails. Improperly removing acrylic does.
  • If you break a nail, do not glue, you run the risk of trapping bacteria on your natural nail and you will end up with a "greenie".
  • Electric files are safe for use on your nails, as long as your technician is trained to use them. You should never experience heat, blood or the dreaded ring of fire.
  • Use Solar Oil every day, it hydrates the nail to help prevent the natural nail from "curling" away from the acrylic.
  • Use care when trimming your toe nails, most trim them too short and trim corners incorrectly, resulting in ingrown toe nails.
  • Your nails are like library books, please don't return them damaged!
  • Wearing acrylic nails and not wearing gloves or using oil every day is like getting $500 of dental work done and never brushing your teeth again!
  • When cleaning, ask yourself "Would I wash my face with that?", if the answer is NO, then you should be wearing gloves!
