Keep Your Nails Looking Perfect

Perfect Nails at Sparx Beauty Salon in Winchester 


Are you looking for a long-lasting nail polish that remains perfect for up to two weeks?  At Sparx Beauty Salon in Winchester, we offer the fantastic CND Shellac polish. 

CND Shellac is a revolutionary colour system for nails which gives you 14-day wear, non chip, non smudge, zero dry time, high gloss mirror finish for your nails.

Often mistaken for a gel polish, CND Shellac has similar qualities but is actually a power polish that is a hybrid between gel and polish.  With care, your nails might even remain perfect for up to three weeks – all with no damage to your natural nails.  

Top Tips for Long-Lasting Nails – Sparx Beauty Salon, Winchester

We’ve all been there… You only just painted your nails, but they are already chipped!  So, what can you do to keep your nail colour looking perfect for longer?    Here are our top tips to help protect your nails.

Biting your Nails: Biting your nails is one the most common ways to ruin your polish. Try applying a no-bite polish on your nails to help wean you off this nasty habit.

Spritzing Perfume:  Avoid spraying your perfume too close to your nails because your scent may well contain some of the same ingredients as nail polish remover!

Applying Hair Spray: Similar to perfume, some hair sprays contain chemicals that will wear away at your nail polish.  Avoid running your painted nails through your hair.

Adding Sunscreen:  Put your sunscreen on BEFORE applying your nail polish.  Many sunscreens will soften nail polish and can even dissolve acrylic nails. 

Cleaning the House: Many cleaning products contain acetone, found in many nail polish removers,  so check the labels carefully.  Consider wearing gloves if you want your nail polish to last longer.

Washing the Dishes: Grab a pair of dish gloves to protect your nails (and hands) from harsh soaps.  These soaps will start to lift your polish from your nails.  It’s a great excuse to get your loved ones to lend a hand too!

Showering, Bathing & Swimming: While we do not suggest you go without bathing,  it might be worth cutting your shower short or giving your swimming a miss if you want to keep your nails looking sensational for a special event.  Water will raise your nail polish from your nail, meaning it will begin to peel and chip.
