Will acrylic or gel extensions damage my nails?
If you have your extensions professionally applied and professionally maintained and removed by qualified nail technicians, there should only be minimal damage to your nail plate. However, constant acrylic application can make your nail plate weak so we advise a small break in between. Beware of nail technicians who leave your nails with white patches, damage and weakness.
It goes without saying that if you pick at your nails or pull them off yourself, the nail will be badly damaged. Professional technicians like those will use the correct, branded, high quality products to apply and remove your nail extensions.
How do i care for my nails after my manicure?
To keep a manicure lasting to its full potential avoid getting your nails wet for too long (constant soaking in hot baths or not wearing rubber gloves when washing the dishes) and also avoid coming into contact for prolonged periods with chemicals like those in sunscreen, perfumed products and insect repellent.
Get someone else to do the DIY or tough chores that might cause your manicure to lift, and apply cuticle oil morning and night if you can. This will keep your nails super healthy throughout the duration of your manicure and it will help keep the polish intact.
Finally, don’t pick at your manicure under any circumstances. Instead Book in for a Nail repair if one or nails have damaged otherwise treat yourself to another treatment.
What is nail fungus and how can it be prevented?
If the natural nail is pulling away from the nail bed then it will possible that the nail fungus will show underneath. The right application and maintenance of the nail extension will help prevent a nail fungus, as well as using products such as a nail antiseptic or fungal nail treatment
What is an Overlay?
This is when either acrylic or gel is applied over the natural nail without the need of a nail extension.
Ideal for those who want just some slight length and thicker nails
How long does it take for treatment?
Different treatments will vary in different times. Please have a look at our scheduling page here for a full list of treatments, prices and duration of the treatment.
What is a manicure ?
Nails classical manicure consists of a warm hand soak, filing and shaping the free edge of the nails, pushing and clipping (with a cuticle pusher and cuticle nippers) and application of fingernail polish. The more advanced treatments will take longer and vary in treatment methodology and price.
What’s the difference between Acrylic, Gel Powder and UV Gel Nails?
For Acrylic nails the strong resin made of a powder and a liquid mixed together. It’s very hard wearing and we recommend it to people that bite their nails or use their hands a lot.
For Gel Powder Nails the resin is a lot like acrylic and the composition is very similar. However, the finish is more clear compared to acrylic nails and its slight better quality. We’d recommend this to anyone going for a pale/nude colour on their manicured nails.
UV Gel nails on the other hand is a hard gel that will allow you to make your nails longer without damaging your nail bed too much. It’s more flexible than acrylic and gel powder and not as hard wearing but it feels lighter on your hands. This needs to be cured by UV light, hence the name
What's the difference between tips and sculpture?
Plastic tips are placed on your natural nails and cut and filed to your desired length and shape before applying acrylic or gel.
Nail Sculptures differ on the other hand. Nail forms are placed at the tip of your nails and product is applied according to the desired length. While the product is drying, the nails will be pinched on the sides to give it more of a natural look. After the product has completely dried the nail form will be removed leaving you with a beautiful and natural nail shape. This system leaves you with a more durable set of nails compared to the tip system. However, this does take slightly longer and costs a few pounds more.
What’s difference between gel nails and shellac nails?
A gel manicure and a Shellac manicure are essentially the same thing: long-lasting polishes cured under UV lamps. The difference is that “gel nails” or “gel manicure” is the generic term for any nails done under a UV lamp which includes shellac, whilst Shellac itself a brand of gel polish by the company Creative Nail Design (CND). It’s comparable to “Henry Hoover” which was so popular that people often call a vacuum cleaner a “Hoover”.
Great experience, my nail tech was so sweet and I forgot to ask what her name was!🤦🏼♀️ clean atmosphere, very organized, I’ll definitely be back for another fill and color!❤️💅🏼
Great Service! I always call ahead for an appointment with Kent. He’s the best person I’ve ever had do my acrylics. Wonderful people and they always make the experience enjoyable!

contacted their page in the middle of the night got a quick response! was able to get in first thing that next morning. had went to a different salon & absolutely hated them. Kent was able to fix my nails & make them beautiful ❤ Will now only go to A+ thank you!
Made an appointment on Saturday morning for a Saturday afternoon thinking it would be busy…walked in 10 minutes early and got me right in. I needed a fill and a repair to a nail that was broken off. I chose gel polish and the whole service was excellent! I explained I was having problems picking things up with set I had gotten at another salon. He fixed that by thinning them to make the nails look and feel real! I will definitely be back
The man who did my nails was very nice and did exactly what I asked for. He even gave advice on what shape of nails better suits my hands. The atmosphere as very light and he was joking around with everyone. I usually go to the place in the Markland Mall and I will 100% be coming here from now on. I recommend A+ Nails 150% more.
Nail tech was friendly, and very gentle. Fairly priced. Beautiful work. I’m absolutely satisfied. Highly recommend!
trish does a very excellent job on my dip nails.. im a very loyal customer for 9 months now thanks trish!
Very current, clean and friendly place. They actually know how to apply Dipping Powder! I went with my sister and our mother. Very gentle with pedicures which is important for elderly.
I love A+ Nails, I’ve been to all of the nail places in Kokomo & my nails would never even last a week. A+ is fast, fun & they always do a great job.
