Do you use MMA in your acrylic extensions?
Never! Our Acrylic powders are EMA (Ethyl Methacrylate) and (nails salon name) is rigorously inspected by the local authority annually to ensure we uphold this.
Salons that offer acrylic extensions at cheap prices are often using MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) which is used in the dental industry. MMA bonds to your nails too harshly, leading to some really bad damage to your natural nail – as a chemical MMA was never designed to come into contact with skin and nails – it is too hard to be used for acrylic extensions and can tear the nail from the nail bed easily!
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
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’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
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.
Can men have manicures or pedicures?
Absolutely. We’re a unisex brand and all treatments are available to you regardless of gender. We’ve noticed that most of our male clients book in for a classical manicure or classical pedicure without paint
I had Phoebe and she was a delight!! She is so good and her nails come out beautifully! Great to talk to.
wonderful place!! love the work i get there and the workers are wonderful!!
I went here just the other day and let me say I just loved it!
Everyone was really welcoming as well as sanitation is being done often. I cant say how much I appreciated how the artist I chose was patient and worked with me to come up with something I adore.
My friend went with me as well, and her nails look so cute! Thank you so much!
Phoebe did did a full set of acrylics for me with a spider and a spider web design and I love them! she made sure that I was happy every step of the way and was very kind. Absolutely will be back!
Never disappointed. Lilly is the BEST!!!!! She always makes my nails look AMAZING!!!
I go see April and she’s amazing. Great job every time. First time visit you get a $5 off coupon too which I thought was really generous. Fair prices, clean salon.
For my mothers birthday we needed a place that could book 5 pedicures all at the same time. The ladies at Big Apple were very welcoming, professional, incredibly clean and provided the greatest and longest pedicures with wonderful leg massages. Well worth the money. Mia did my pedicure and she spent so much time on me and went above and beyond what I expected. I will definitely be coming back.
April is absolutely wonderful. Always knows my shape and length. Glad I found my friend
I’ve only been twice, but have had such a positive experience both times. Everyone there is very kind and makes sure you like what they’re doing. They have a lot of space, a lot of options for colors or service, and it’s clean and modern. I found my new favorite nail place!
April is wonderful! She is so sweet, kind, consistent & quite skilled. (My previous nail tech of 13-14 yrs was moody & sometimes mean.😔) April is such a breath of fresh air. I’ve been getting nails done for 33 years (acrylic mainly, also tried shellac & dip) and April is right up there among the best!
