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!
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.
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.
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.
My new go-to Blooming Nails & Spa! It’s huge and clean! Very COVID SAFE!!! they did an amazing job and the women are lovely and kind! Everything is brand new! Love my gel manicure! And the prices are really good too!
I arrived just after they opened, so it wasn’t busy at all. Blooming Nails & Spa provides me a gel manicure, and it’s just lovely!
I love this place! Super nice and the employees are great. Came here with a big group to do manis and pedis before my wedding and was super happy. Just got an organic spa pedi!
Always great Mani and Pedi. Massages are excellent whether 10 min or 1 hour downstairs. Very clean and nice staff. Very professional, just a little pricier for Mani/Pedi probably because of location. If during workday they are quick and efficient but if you have the time they don’t rush you.
My new go-to place. I got a gel manicure – and it beat any I have gotten elsewhere. 10 Minute chair massage was perfect. Commute across town for this place.
Great fast manicure! This picture was taken a day after the manicure and it still looks solid. Cuticles look great, strong painting technique, and kind service. Would recommend.
The salon is super clean & all of the nail technicians show incredible attention to detail when they work on my nails. I always leave with perfectly filed, beautifully painted, shiny nails
Best manicure I’ve ever had! The polish lasted a solid 10 days and never chipped. The spa itself is clean and the atmosphere is relaxing. I’ll definitely be going back.
This is one of the best nail spas I’ve seen around. It’s beautifully set-up, very clean, and it’s one of the very rare spaces where I’ve been asked if I wanted to wash my hands first.
I wish I found this place sooner! Great salon, very warm & friendly staff that makes you feel super comfortable.
