Our hands work so hard and it is important to treat our hands and nails like "jewels" not tools! There are so many benefits to having a regular manicure! It's not just about having pretty painted nails....a Beauty Bug manicure includes hand soak in warm soapy water to clean the skin and nails and soften the cuticles. The hands are then exfoliated to get rid of dead skin cells and to soften and smooth the skin. The cuticles are pushed back and dead skin removed. This is then followed by a relaxing deep tissue hand massage which helps to improve blood circulation and improves mobility for the joints. After the massage, the nails are painted in a colour of your choice (I have a lot of beautiful OPI colours to choose from!)
Having a manicure after removal of gel polish or nail extensions can help to get your nails back into shape! Often once the gels are removed, nails can be weak, brittle and dehydrated. Beauty Bug gel removal always includes an express manicure to recondition the nails and cuticles. I always recommend using Marcela's Garlic and Lemon Nail strengthener (£14) treatment if you are having a break from gels/acrylics. It is an 8 week treatment that completely transforms weak, brittle nails into strong healthy nails.
There's just something about having a manicure that is instantly relaxing..... sitting in a beautiful space getting pampered. There is nothing better than looking down at your hands and seeing them perfectly painted and hands looking healthy and hydrated!
