The Importance Of Covering Your Hands After A Gel Manicure
Whether it's with gloves or mitts, covering up your hands is the best prevention against damaged nails, especially if you have a gel manicure.
If you wash dishes with hot water, use cleaning sprays, or come into contact with other chemical-based products using your bare hands, your gel manicure will dull or peel quickly.
A pair of gloves will protect your hands from harshness and keep your gel nails shiny. When showering, using lukewarm water will also extend the length of your manicure.
You should also wear gloves if you plan to get a gel manicure; the healthier your nails are, the better your gel manicures will work.
