How to properly store manicure equipment, gel and varnish?
Do you know the expression “a place for everything and everything in its place”? Now is the time to apply it to properly preserve your manicure equipment. In this article, the nail supply expert Maryton will give some practical tips and advice for properly storing your nail prosthesis products.
Store manicure equipment properly
If you work in a fixed location, such as in a nail bar or in a furnished room, you can use bit holders or brush holders.
If you work from home, it is best to use:
- From a closed box: for stainless steel utensils, such as cuticle pushers, metal file bases, cuticle cutters, pliers, etc. ;
- A second box for the cutters if you use an electric nail drill to do the nails;
- A third resealable box for more fragile equipment, such as nail files (excluding stainless steel) or wooden sticks;
- A quiver for storing brushes.
Storing gel and varnishes
Whether you work from home or in a beauty salon, the tips for storing gels and polishes are similar. Initially, the jars and bottles must remain upright and upright to prevent the product from leaking.
On the other hand, gel, classic or semi-permanent nail polishes, just like acrygel or resin, are photosensitive substances. It is therefore essential to store them away from light in a dark place.
In terms of temperatures, these materials fear cold and heat. It is therefore preferable to store them in a place where temperatures are between 5 and 25°C. Indeed, lower or higher temperatures can alter the consistency and viscosity of manicure products.
Properly storing your materials and products for doing nails allows you to achieve great results. Also remember that the quality of the equipment you get initially is essential.
