5 ways to maintain gel nail polishes

Gel nail polishes are a great way to keep nails looking strong, healthy, colourful and pretty over a long period of time, but to ensure this, they must be well-maintained and kept in tip top condition at all times. This is to stop nail polish from going off too quickly.

Naturally, nail polishes have a use-by date, but you can make them last as long as their shelf-life. Here are five quick and simple ways to maintain and preserve your collection of gel nail varnishes for your nail salon.

1. Keep it cool

Keep gel nail paints in a cool, dark and dry place. Keeping your nail paints cool helps the formula last longer, while keeping them in a place with a hot temperature (i.e. direct heat and sunlight) can cause the formula to separate and get clumpy, altering the thickness and colour, and ruining the quality of gel nails.
2. Clean the neck

Before closing the nail polish, wipe the neck of the bottle with a cotton ball drenched in nail polish remover containing acetone to remove excess nail polish, then close the bottle straight after. This makes the bottle easier to close and prevents air from getting trapped inside it. Air dries out nail polish and this ruins the quality.

3. Keep the bottles upright

Keeping gel nail polish bottles upright instead of lying down stops the polishes from drying out, maintaining the quality of gel nails after application.

4. Don't shake

Before you apply gel nail polish, shake gently but not too much. Shaking gel nail varnish vigorously can create bubbles, leading to uneven application.

5. Design and implement appropriate and protective storage

Add a storage unit to keep gel nail polishes upright and well preserved, and to make it easier to pick out shades. You could add a nail polish wall rack or a shelving unit. Implement in a cool and dark place, and away from direct heat and sunlight.

If your customers love gel nails and they want the perfect manicure, then consider purchasing high-quality and colourful gel nail polishes from Chroma Gel for your salon.
