What to do before getting a manicure

At OTC we believe in the professionalism and the quality of our beauty technicians. With our chemical free and (where possible) naturally sourced and organic ingredients we are confident we can get the best results if you come to use for a manicure. However there are a few things you can do to prepare before you book in that will help ensure the best results. Don’t be worried If it’s your first time it is easy to be scared. However a good technician will relax you and put you at your ease (indeed some of our manicure packages include arm massage so you might want to consider that if you’re feeling a bit stressed out). Don’t trim nails in advance Some people can get nervous before a manicure and not want a beauty technician to see their nails. The temptation then is to neaten up your nails and try to trim them yourself before you get your manicure. However this is not something to worry about and if anything it is better to come “natural” as this will allow the technician to shape the nails in a more appropriate way. Be careful around the cuticles Cuticles protect the nail from infection so it is important to be careful. It is better to wash them rather than cut them (an experienced beauty technician will know the right way to trim them to ensure that they look good while still providing necessary protection.) Talk with the technician Are you concerned about the process? Is this your first time getting a manicure? Don’t be afraid to ask questions about the process and what they would recommend for you. The best technicians won’t use a “one size fits all” approach and will be able to recommend the best options that personally suit your particular requirements. We can come to you Looking online there are a lot of articles that talk about people looking around salons, checking to make sure they are clean, tools aren’t reused and so forth. At OTC we have an easy solution- with our mobile beauty technicians we can come to you! What this means is that you can set yourself up in a way that works best for you. We pride ourselves on being professional and setting a high standard but we also understand that people may not necessarily have time to head out to a salon or may not feel comfortable going somewhere they don’t know. With a range of natural and chemical free products we are confident that we can provide the best results. However while the end results look good the lack of chemicals ensures that they are better for your skin in the long term. If you would like to know more about what we have to offer or wish to book a treatment please contact us today and we will be happy to discuss with you what will suit you. In short you can get your nails looking good in a more natural and long lasting way!
