How do Igor’s experts buff?
Our well-trained experts apply a little buffing cream to the nails and then start buffing in one direction. They also employ a traditional buffer or a piece of chamois. While using both cream and buffer, our professionals are cautious that they don’t buff away too much of the nail. Too much buffing can produce a burning sensation, and our experts are aware of that.
The buffing technique at Igor M Salon will smooth the surface and offer a little shine as well. For even more shine… experts at Igor M Salon also apply a little beeswax with a chamois and buff away.
Things to be remembered while buffing??
- Buffers usually come in different grades, so consider quite precisely what grade should do what. The rougher texture should only be done for shaping and smoothing the edges of the nails… much in the same manner as an emery board.
- Buffing the nails should be done very gently and in one direction only… to slow you down. Vigorous buffing can thin the nail, and believe us; this can be painful.
