There’s nothing worse than leaving unDONE Salon, only to put a dent in your freshly painted nail polish. With the potential of ruining your nails doing unavoidable daily tasks, you may be wondering how often you should get a Boise manicure. While we all wish our nails would last forever, determining the answer to that question can be tricky. Not only does the amount of time between visits depend on things like the condition of your nails, and lifestyle factors but how you maintain and care for your Boise manicure in the process.
The Health of Your Nails
Look closely at your fingernails. Are they strong and healthy or are they brittle and tend to break easily? While less than desirable nail conditions can be avoided with proper nail care, others could indicate an underlying condition that needs the attention of a doctor. To keep your nails healthy and looking their best, it’s important to practice good nail hygiene by not biting your nails, picking at your cuticles or using harsh nail care products.
The amount of TLC your nails need depends on what you do on a daily basis. For instance, people who spend their time behind a desk probably won’t need as much nail care as say a person who spends their time working in a garden. Depending on what you do, it’s important to take in certain lifestyle factors when determining how often you should get a Boise manicure.
What have you done today? Did you use your nails to open a package or pick at some chipped nail polish? Without even knowing it, the chances are pretty good that you’ve already wreaked some serious havoc on your nails. While we all have our vices, it’s important to be smart about nail care and put a stop to bad habits before they ruin your Boise manicure.
Prolonging the Effects of Your Boise Manicure
- Choose the right length and shape
- Avoid heat and water after a Boise manicure
- Use a protecting topcoat
- Don’t cut or play with your cuticles
- Limit your use of drying hand sanitizers
- Moisturize and apply cuticle oil daily
- Wear gloves to protect your nails when cleaning

It’s important to care for your nails on a regular basis and maintain them with a Boise manicure. How long your manicure lasts, however, depends on what you do and how well you care for it. At unDONE Salon, our master nail technician “Yogi” recommends scheduling a Boise manicure every 2-3 weeks to keep your nails looking and feeling their best. However, if you find yourself with an unexpected split, cracked or torn nail, come see us for a needed repair.
Whether you are preparing for a big event or just want to maintain a beautiful manicure, getting your nails professionally done is a great way to pamper yourself while throwing the time-consuming task of doing-it-yourself out the window.
