So much more than a lick of paint, a manicure means looking after the health of your hands, nails and cuticles. This, in turn, will give you the perfect canvas to make your nail polish last even longer.
We recommend regular professional manicures so your nails can be analysed and prescribed the correct base coat. But if you can’t make it to the salon, Gerrard International offers everything you need to achieve Jessica’s legendary manicure results at home. From base coats to top coats, hand & cuticle care to complete home manicure kits, it’s all right here.
And here are some pro tips for the perfect manicure…
Reveal the radiance – dry skin stops products penetrating and can make your hands look dull. Exfoliate for a couple of minutes as part of your manicure with LeRemedi HandSilkExfoliare to reveal new, radiant skin.
Soften, don’t snip – thick, dry cuticles can look unsightly, but cutting will only make them grow back thicker. Soften them by massaging in Jessica’s Nourish Therapeutic Cuticle Formula throughout the day and Phenomen Oil each night.
Perfectly cleansed – fill a bowl with warm water and a couple of drops of soap-free cleanser like LeRemedi Hand Cleanse orJessica Hand & Body Bath. Then use a nail brush to scrub nails clean of traces of oil or polish remover that could cause your nail polish to lift.
Lay the foundations – an essential addition to every manicure, a Jessica prescriptive base coat will correct any nail concerns and create the perfect canvas to apply your nail polish to.
The lasting finish – don’t skip your top coat. It can make a difference of days to how long your manicure lasts! Try Jessica’s Brilliance or Top Priority. And you can reapply Jessica top coats every 2-3 days to keep your manicure looking ‘just painted’.
