How to take care of acrylic nails

  1. Always keep your nails as dry as possible.  Wear gloves while doing the dishes and after washing your hands, be sure to dry as best as you can.
  2. Use an antibacterial soap.  Since your nails can lure in unwanted bacteria, it’s best to use an antibacterial soap.
  3. If you see a chip or any problem, get it looked at as fast as you can.  Doing so can often get it fixed and the salon will do it for a minimal charge if you come back fast enough.
  4. As mentioned above, go back to the salon to have your nails refilled.  This will help reduce the risk of infection and keep your nails shining.
  5. Pay close attention to the cuticles.  If you notice any severe dryness or redness, your skin may be reacting to the nails.
  6. To prevent dryness, try to use lotion daily.
