HOW TO APPLY AILA

At AILA, we are big believers in the dry manicure / pedicure (versus wet manicures / pedicures). A dry manicure / pedicure completely excludes water and any chemicals that may be added to the water. Water expands natural nails, and invites bacteria into the nail beds, cuticles and the skin around the nails. Our 3-IN-1 Nail Color Remover with Pure Argan Oil  is the perfect nail moisturizing treatment at the start of our dry manicure / pedicure.  The nourishing Argan oil rubs right off with a clean cotton ball, so you can easily apply AILA’s ‘Prime’ base coat'. 

We recommend avoiding wet manicures / pedicures completely. They’re a dated practice with proven undesirable long-term results as it relates to the health of the nail. A great alternative is our Coconut Nail & Cuticle Therapy (STEP FOUR below), which should be applied over the manicure / pedicure and to the skin of your hands and feet.
