#2 Cuticle Oils

After reading the above description, I’m sure you’ll be concerned about the condition of your clients’ cuticles.

I suggest that after this period, you offer your clients the opportunity to let their nails breathe, take the opportunity to cleanse and moisturize their cuticles. Nothing more and at the end of t one week, the nails will be ready to receive the semi-permanent varnish again.
