FAQ: Cute Nail Designs
Why do they remove your cuticles?
Removing your cuticles during a manicure is performed for a solely cosmetic purpose. Dermatologists are against cutting cuticles because this area is supposed to protect your nails as well as the surrounding skin from infection. Removing your cuticles allows an easy access for bacteria and fungus.
What should you not do after a manicure?
Avoid using products that contain oil and soaking your nails in hot water immediately after manicure that can weaken and lift acrylics. However, it is important to moisturize your hands and nails regularly. Wear gloves while applying tanning product or using chemicals.
