The natural nail is a look that has become increasingly popular. While nail trends come and go, there are a variety of options from acrylics, gels, nail art, multiple colors, and more. However, if you are ready to get back to the essentials, that is perfectly okay as well. Let’s take a look at what is involved with the care of natural nails, manicures and pedicures.
You want to have healthy nails, which is why you should seek out an eco-friendly nail salon in Tucson. Many times, other nail salons will use all sorts of chemicals for your nails. However, you would like to keep your natural nails looking beautiful without those harmful chemicals. Nail polish remover can be damaging and toxic and the nail polish remover that often comes in the form of acetone definitely is. The damage occurs even more with the removal of acrylic or gel nails as your hands will have to soak in the acetone solution for some time. Often times that solution doesn’t get rid of all of the problem and scraping may be needed to get the acrylics or gels off. This scraping can be even more damaging to your nails.
When you have had acrylics or gels on for a long time it is a good idea to give your nails a break. This means that you will be sporting some natural nails for a while. This can give your nails a much needed break to become strong and healthy once again.
Healthier Nail Salon Services
If you recently had your artificial nails removed, there will be residue and acetone on them. This can all be cleared off at the buffing stage of going back to natural nails. This stage is similar to scrub during a facial. It lightly polishes and cleanses the area. These are often be filled with growth-stimulating nutrients that will nourish your nails to give them a booster for better health. As an eco-friendly nail salon in Tucson, we love to teach our clients the various organic and healthy ways to do things.
Getting A Nice Natural Nail Look
Once you have had a nice hand massage with the hydrating oil, we will move on to the vitamin-infused nail products that help naturally strengthen the nails. Once you have had your nails buffed and a massage we will focus back on the nails and add a vitamin-infused or even protein-infused nail strengthener that we put on the nails to give them a nice smooth appearance. If you just had your artificial nails removed, you will probably have some lumps and bumps along with natural ridges on the nails.
Keeping your nails at a good length for you, we may will need to file them. Nails that are too long can look unkept but they can be fixed with a professional manicure or pedicure
Applying Nail Color
Once your nails have had this detailed treatment it is time for polish. While some like the bright colors and fancy designs, you may be looking for a natural nail look. As an eco-friendly nail salon, we recommend that you use something that is very neutral and clear or transparent to give your nails that natural nail appearance. We use vitamin-infused nail products that naturally strengthen the nails. Some clients may even choose to forgo the nail polish as the natural nail strengthener has left their nails looking great!
Foot Treatment At An Eco-Friendly Nail Salon
Did you know that a natural nail treatment from an eco-friendly nail salon isn’t only for hands? This same method can be applied to your toes as well. Having a natural nail treatment done on your feet can help prevent ingrown toenails, calluses, and more. If you have feet prone to these things, then it might make sense for you to have a natural nail treatment at a local eco-friendly nail salon such as Greentoes in Tucson.
Natural nail treatments for your feet will typically start with a foot bath. Here you will soak your feet, which will relax and cleanse them. Once your feet have been soaking for a while and your toenails have become soft, then the next step is trimming and shaping your nails. This will be done in a way that may also help prevent ingrown toenails from happening.
Next attention will go to the feet. Your feet will be buffed all over and dead skin and calluses will be attended to. The final step would be to apply oil which will soften up the cuticles. Finally, a soothing massage will rub the oil in and push back the cuticles.
There are many things that you can do at home to keep your nails looking their finest. However, it is important to allow the professionals at Greentoes in Tucson do it from time to time or, on a regular basis. This will ensure that you get the very best results.
