How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Belle Nail Studio, your technician will leave your polish to dry for about 5 minutes before applying a quick-dry spray, which accelerates the drying process. They will then check to see if your manicure still needs drying – it is you’ll have to sit back just a little longer to avoid smudges!
In total, around 10-15 minutes after the last topcoat, your manicure should be touch dry and good to go. Just try to avoid knocking it (easily done by rummaging in your bag!) for about an hour until the polish has fully cured through all the coats.
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 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 Belle Nail Studio you can choose to have the nail bed clear with any colour tip
Can i put acrylics back on immediately after soaking off the old acrylics?
Yes, it’s fine to re-apply acrylics straight away as natural nails are made up of keratin (protein) so nails don’t breathe. If you have ripped your acrylics off causing the natural nail to thin however, then you might want to wait to harden the nails back up, as the acrylics will just add more stress on top of damaged 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.
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
Can i book more than one treatment at the same time?
Yes. However, our system only allows one booking at a time. Most of our treatments have a drop down add on list so you can click on a specific treatment and have a drop down list to choose from. Where there isn’t a drop then, then take note of the time and duration of your first treatment, checkout your booking and click schedule another appointment. Make sure it follows after your first treatment you booked.
What causes your acrylic or gel nails to lift?
This can happen for many reasons. Acrylics take 24 – 48 hours to fully cure, and a slight knock during that time can cause the acrylics to lift.
Other reasons for lifting include: diseased nail plate, not maintaining regular infills, nicotine, fruit acids such as lemons, oranges, and other citrus fruits, harsh detergents, using a acetone based nail polish remover, medication, stress, misuse of nails, occupation, picking and biting, excessive use of oils and creams, or even just wearing the nail too long can cause lifting.
I have never had a better manicure! Cindy took such care with my nails and the results are v cute!
Acrylic but natural looking, gel, well worth the money
Love the service everytime I come! I’ve been coming here for 3 years for mani pedi
The new owner Hien is so skilled at what she does and super kind.
Whoever wrote them a one star review about them calling police on her is providing false information. That woman was never at the salon. Not sure why she’d make up such a horrible story to destroy the Salon’s reputation. Shame on her!
I just moved to the Davis Square area and was looking for a salon to get my nails done. I went before Christmas and was greeted by Cindy. She was so nice and helped me pick my color…I have never gotten a gel manicure before, so when Cindy pushed getting gel I was a little hesitant but I decided to try it. I could NOT be happier with the outcome! This was the most beautiful, perfect manicure I’ve ever gotten. Everyone is so accommodating and nice. I went back today to get another gel manicure and was just as pleased as the first time!
Is good. I love my nails. The salon so clean and ladies is nice. I feel comfortable when I arrived here.
Most amazing nail service I have ever had!! The woman who did my nails was so incredibly nice. I will definitely be returning!!!

They do a great job painting, as I always sharp looking nails after. Clean and open later than most. I don’t trust other places around Davis to do a consistently good looking job.

This was my first time visiting Belle Nail Studio. Cindy was awesome! She gave me a fabulous dip manicure! The atmosphere was nice. Clean and well lit. A great nail salon.
I don’t get my nails done often, but when I do, I go here. They are reliable and consistently give great manicures and pedicures, which is refreshing when other places can be so hit or miss. The space is also clean and organized, and the staff is friendly.
Cindy was so kind and got me right in. The quality of their work is unmatched!
