What: The Perfect Manicure
Why: Think about how often you use your hands through the day, think about buying your morning coffee, shaking hands with your new co worker, typing away on your uni assignments or work projects, rinsing dishes and dipping your travel ten into the meter when using public transport.
Hands are one of the first things people notice about you and well manicured hands speak volumes about a person, just think of how awful it looks to see a chewed up or dirty set of nails on a person, even how bad chipped nail polish can look and you will realise just how much clean, neat nails make a difference.
What to look for:
Hygiene: Your nail technician should be clean, first and foremost. If you think an un-manicured set of nails looks bad, wait until you see what an infected nail looks like! So make sure the work area is prepped and clean, make sure they use clean tools and always wash your hands before you start your manicure.
Gel Nails: These days you shouldn’t have to resort to tacky acrylic nails which will just ruin your natural nail, with all the gel polishes that are around there is no excuse to have your nail filed and drilled down only to have acrylics glued to your nail which will take you natural nail months to recover from and let’s be honest... acrylics kind of scream stripper.
With all the gel nail options these days I think the humble manicure will soon become extinct, why spend $25 on a manicure that will last two days when you can have a perfect look for up to a month with gel nails.
I prefer Bio Sculpture Gel, it’s a gel that gives you the brilliant shine and strength of a gel nail without that thick fake look, it’s safe and will last the 2-3 weeks you’re used to but your nail will become stronger and grow faster underneath!
Bio Sculpture isn’t tested on animals and is safe to apply and remove.
If you get bored easily you can paint over the top of the gel nail with any polish and remove it with acetone free nail polish when you want to go back to your gel nail colour.
The nails soak off quickly, come in a huge range of colours (including clear and classic French) and in my opinion, they are the best gel nails I have tried.
I see Kaori at John Azzi Salon in Sydney CBD. She is a qualified Bio Sculpture Therapist, she’s friendly, fast, hygienic and I’m never disappointed with the finished product, I love a classic French but with the amount of colours she has available, I’m always trying something new and fun.
