Taking good care of your acrylics will keep them looking great for longer and save you money.

The Kustom Klaws Nail 10 Commandments

  1. Cuticle oil! If nothing else, apply cuticle oil daily. This will keep your cuticles nourished and keep your enhancements looking newer for longer.

  2. Wear rubber gloves when washing up, dusting, gardening, applying chemical tan or hair dye. Excessive exposure to water or chemicals will damage your acrylics and any embellishments.

  3. Allow yourself time to become accustomed to your new nails. Simple tasks such as doing up buttons, using your mobile phone or flushing the toilet may be difficult at first. Give yourself 1-2 weeks to adjust to your new nail length.

  4. Do not file the surface of the acrylic nail. This will damage the structure and may lead to chips or cracks.

  5. Do not bite or pick at the acrylic nail, as you could cause it to lift or break and damage your natural nail in the process.

  6. If you experience any lifting or breaking, come see us for a repair immediately and do NOT attempt DIY repairs. Lifted nails are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria.

  7. If you decide to remove your acrylic nails, please do not attempt to take them off yourself. Come in and have them soaked off gently. Prying your acrylics off, will cause significant damage to your natural nail, and in some cases, you could pull your nail off with it.

  8. Have your acrylics refilled every 2-3 weeks. This is imperative to the upkeep of the nails.

  9. Remember! Nails are jewels, NOT tools. We’ve all been guilty of using our acrylics as a make-shift Swiss army knife, but try not to. Using your nails as tools, will cause damage.
