A fresh set of acrylic nails always feel great. They make you feel good and take you by awe at random occasions during the day. All good things come to an end, so do the fresh Acrylic Nails after about 2 to 3 weeks. Once you have gotten your acrylic nails from, the very next thing that comes to your mind is how to make them last longer? Though the nails are known for their strength, they still need to be treated with care, especially household work. Following are some tips that will help to increase the life of your acrylic nails.

Having a knowledgeable nail technician

The nail technician has a crucial role to play, as they would be the ones who would be attaching the acrylic nails. The technician should be consistent, curious, and creative. They should be qualified with a passion for nails and with the skillset and updated with the latest products and trends. Ensure that their workstation is clean and tidy. One of the markers of a sound technician is to keep their clients up to date with their infills and imbalances and ensures that the nails are still looking healthy. They should also give you aftercare advice and educate you on your nails and answer all your queries.

Spend a little extra 

Once you begin to get acrylic nails done, it becomes a monthly thing before you know it. Maintaining them can be quite a task. You would have to get infills every 2 to 3 weeks. So you would have to spend a little more now and then to keep your nails looking pretty. Though it might sound like an extra expenditure, anything that makes you feel good about yourself is always worth it.

Schedule your infills

Going to get infills to keep your nails looking as gorgeous as they are right now might seem like a daunting task. To make this easier, start scheduling your appointments well in advance. It is crucial that you make it to your appointments so that the nails don’t grow out, making it easier to damage the natural nails. When the natural nails begin to grow out, they leave a gap in the cuticle area. This is the time when the lifting starts to happen, and your nail begins to get stuck in all sorts of places. With time it even becomes weak, making it difficult for the acrylic to stay on the natural nails and hence, moves forwards towards the free edge.

Carry out daily and weekly maintenance tasks for your nails.

Maintaining your nails will help prevent them from breakage. Keep the nails clean with the help of a brush. Apply cuticle oil and moisturize your hands daily so that they are soft and healthy. Keep a lookout for any lifting or crack marks on your acrylic. If there is a nail varnish on top, then apply a topcoat every two days to prevent it from chipping. While washing and working with cleaning products, make sure that you wear gloves.
