Nail Extension Care: Do's and Don'ts to Keep Your Nails Looking Their Best

the ultimate care guide

Nail extensions are a great way to enhance the look of your nails and boost your confidence. However, they require some care and attention to ensure they last as long as possible and don't cause damage to your natural nails.

At Salon Nayana, Bangalore, we provide expert guidance on how to care for your nail extensions and keep them looking their best.

Here are some do's and don'ts to keep in mind:


  1. Do use cuticle oil: Keeping your cuticles moisturized is essential for maintaining healthy nails and preventing lifting or breakage of your extensions. We recommend using a cuticle oil daily to keep your nails and cuticles hydrated.

  2. Do protect your nails: When engaging in activities that could cause damage to your nails, such as washing dishes or gardening, be sure to wear gloves to protect your extensions.

  3. Do schedule regular fills: To keep your nail extensions looking fresh and to prevent lifting or breakage, it's important to schedule regular fills every 2-3 weeks. This will also help maintain the health of your natural nails.

  4. Do follow your technician's aftercare instructions: After your nail extensions have been applied, your technician will provide guidance on how to care for them between appointments. This may include avoiding certain activities, using specific products, or scheduling a follow-up appointment.

  5. Do ask for help if you experience any issues: If you experience any issues with your nail extensions, such as lifting or discomfort, don't hesitate to contact your technician for assistance. They can help diagnose the issue and provide a solution to ensure your nails stay healthy and beautiful.


  1. Don't use your nails as tools: Using your nail extensions to open cans, peel stickers, or perform other tasks can cause damage to your natural nails and your extensions. Use the appropriate tools for these tasks instead.

  2. Don't pick or pull at your extensions: Picking or pulling at your nail extensions can cause them to lift or break, which can damage your natural nails. If you notice any lifting or damage, contact your technician for assistance.

  3. Don't use harsh chemicals: Harsh chemicals, such as bleach or acetone, can damage your nail extensions and your natural nails. Avoid using these products or use them with caution.

  4. Don't skip your maintenance appointments: Skipping your maintenance appointments can cause your nail extensions to become damaged or fall off prematurely. Be sure to schedule regular fills to keep your nails looking their best.

  5. Don't keep your nail extensions on for too long: Nail extensions are not meant to be worn indefinitely. It's important to remove them after a certain amount of time to prevent damage to your natural nails. Your technician can provide guidance on when it's time to remove your extensions and how to do so safely.
