PICK A CHILL DAY
Contrary to popular misconception, nail polish doesn’t completely harden shortly after application, in fact it actually takes 12-24 hours! During this time polish is especially fragile and prone to damage! So schedule your pedicure on a day that won’t require much from your feet, a chill kind of day where you can kick your freshly pedicured toes up and relax.
Come to your pedicure appointment in or with sandals in hand, otherwise be ready to walk out in those funny single use flip flops, because putting your feet inside close-toed shoes after your service is a pedicure crime! The polish, even though it might appear dry, simply isn’t ready to experience any friction. At best you will have affected its shine and structure, at worst…well let’s not think about that, it’s just too sad!

NO HEAT & MOISTURE FOR 12 HOURS!
During that precarious first 12-24 hours after your pedicure service heat and moisture are the enemy, as they reverse the hardening process. So skip the warm bath/shower, the jacuzzi, the hot yoga class, the sweaty spin class, the steam room and sauna, and let your pedicure breathe and rest. You will not only avoid the bitter disappointment of messing it up, but it will also go on to fight that much harder to stay on your toes for the remainder of its beautiful lifespan!
GEL POLISH W/ EVO by Bio Sculpture OR DAZZLE DRY MEANS FORGET ALL OF THE ABOVE
If you get either of these polish options you can forget all of the above, because they harden completely within just a few minutes of application! A great option for someone who simply cannot remember to bring sandals, cannot chill and never skips their hot yoga!
I know this is a hard one, because summers and pool-fun are practically synonymous! So, let’s just call what follows a strong suggestion with a warning sprinkled on top. Chlorine’s job is basically to wreak havoc on everything, in this capacity it has many useful applications but what it will do to your pretty pedi is not one of them. Chlorine will compromise the integrity of your polish, causing it to fade and crack! It will also dry out your skin and cuticles. If you can’t resist the pool’s lure this summer, it’s ok, jump in, but please as soon as you are done, thoroughly rinse off your feet with fresh water and apply unscented lotion! Aftercare goes a long way here!
