How is gel polish or Shellac polish removed?
Gel polish is very difficult to remove with standard nail polish remover and if you peel it off it can damage your nails so it is always advisable to book in for professional take off at …Nails
This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your Ann’s Nails & Spa Technician will then use tools to remove the last of the polish and neaten up your nails ready to go!
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 are cuticles? And which package will include cuticle work?
Cuticles are the small overgrowth of dead skin at the bottom of your nail plate. They join the living tissue to your nail, and protect you from any contaminants getting under your skin.
However, overgrown cuticles are no good! Cuticles should be kept pushed back and tidy to keep your nails looking healthy- short, pushed back cuticles also help you get neat, long lasting polish application and help your nails look longer and more elegant. With standard polish, manicures and pedicures, we advise booking a full manicure and pedicure as oppose to our express treatments. With gel polish, the shellac manicure treatment will do the trick!
How long does standard polish last for?
Standard nail polish usually lasts up to 5 days and is a great choice for temporary or short one off occasions. If that’s what you’re looking for then we recommend booking a classical manicure. It does take a fair few minutes to dry fully to avoid smudges on your manicure.
If that’s too short of period for you then we recommend booking a shellac (gel) manicure, which is designed to last up to two weeks!
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
What is a French manicure?
The standard style of a French manicure is when the fingernails are painted pale pink with a white band at the tip. At Ann’s Nails & Spa you can choose to have the nail bed clear with any colour tip
How can i prevent the nail polish from staining my nails?
Nails often turn yellowish when a strong, pigmented polish is applied. To prevent pigmentation, make sure you put base coat on prior to applying the coloured polish so it acts as a barrier.
Or simply choose for a less potent colour

Had the best time having a manicure and pedicure. Loved every moment. The staff were wonderful and did a great professional job. Had absolutely no worries about the virus – all the staff and customers were in masks and everything was very sanitary. Great job everyone at Ann’s. Thank you. I will be back…
I always get my nails done here by Abby and she does an amazing job. She always gives me exactly what I ask for at a great price, including the most recent set I got! 🙂
Abby always does an amazing job for an amazing price. Everyone there is super nice and always have a fun time.

I loved this place! Abby is such a great talented nail artist! She took her time and made sure that each nail was perfectly carved to the finger. I definitely recommend coming to see her! 10/10 🔥 ♥️
Im not too sure why there are so many bad comments, I had a WONDERFUL experience. T U took care of me and was absolutely awesome. I got my set and pedicure for 60 bucks! Thats a reasonable price!! Definitely will be back!
This place is great, relaxing environment & a variety of services! I got the dipped nails (so many colors to choose from) & it was fast yet the quality was the level I prefer, all while I could decompress & relax for a while. I wish I had more time I would have gotten the pedicure but I will definitely next time.
I went back and got a new set with Andy. He’s awesome!
Linh is great at what she does. I totally recommend if you’re in the SA area. She takes care of her customers. You won’t be disappointed
I’ve recently started coming here and I’m so glad that I have. Everyone has a great personality and the quality of work has never disappointed me. This is the dip powder that Ben did for me, and I love them. They are awesome
Have been getting my nails done by Eden because he does a fabulous job!!! I like dip powder but not all nail techs are created equal. He is above all the rest!!!
