I am a licensed aesthetician who cares about the wellness and relaxation of my clients. I like to provide more than superficial beauty (but it doesn't mean that I don't like nail art and designs). I work out of my home (walkout basement with separate entrance for clients) so there is no unnecessary cost added except high standards of safety precautions and quality products.

What makes nail polish chip quickly?

For almost five years now as a certified aesthetician I never used a buffer on my client's nails, and it is all because of what happened to me when I was a student in the beauty school that I went to in Oshawa. While we were practicing artificial nails, a student who worked on me, she vigorously buffed my nails till it bled. But I have to confess that few weeks ago while in the mall, one of the sales selling an expensive skin moisturizer stopped me and she buffed my nails. I have to admit that what impressed me was the buffed nails not the prodcts used. My nail felt and looked beautiful, for a while I never stopped myself from touching my nail feeling how smooth it was.

Buffing gently can be very rewarding; rid your nails of ridges, take care of jagged edges, and even encourage the nails to grow.
What are the benefits of buffing?
  • Buffing can increase the blood circulation to the nail bed.
  • Buffing off the ridges also gives a smoother surface for the polish to adhere to.
  • Actually buffing leaves such an attractive sheen to the nails, that you might skip the polishing step. After all, buffed nails cannot chip.
  • Buffing encourages the nails to grow thanks to the improved circulation.
  • This procedure also helps to remove surface stains.
