How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at our salon, 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.
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 a gel polish/ Shellac manicure last for?
With cuticle work and full nail preparation, a gel or shellac manicure should last about 2 weeks with proper application and aftercare. We offer an express version of a gel manicure, but if you want that complete 2 week guarantee then we advise going for the full gel (shellac) manicure.
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
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
Why should i use cuticle oil?
Cuticle oil is used to moisturize the cuticle, skin and nail area. It can protect the cuticle and nail against damage and improve the health and appearance of the cuticles and nails.
Nail plates can get very dehydrated easily, but cuticle oil application is such an easy way to avoid this, leaving beautiful nails! Cuticle oil should not be used as a first-line of defence against dryness, but rather to fix extremely dry, cracked nails. It’s usually of natural, rapidly absorbing vegetable oils; cuticle oil can also contains vitamins
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.
Can be slow service, but it’s because they are very meticulous and everything is done to a high standard. Best quality manis and pedis!!
I love this place! They are really careful and professional, beautiful friendly atmosphere , my hands and feet feel and look amazing after Days Spa!
This is the only place I will go! Really kind and welcoming vietnamese women. My husband and I both go together and have been for a long time now. They know what they’re doing! Everything is clean and professional.
These ladies do an amazing job. Each time I go in, they spend time perfecting my nails down to the last detail!
I love this place so much I wish I could bring them back to my hometown with me they were so professional, great customer service and amazing prices. My manicure & pedicure were great!!! Definitely a great place to come to!! This is the nail salon to go to I wouldn’t go anywhere else
Really great place! They’re fast and super hospitable!
Ultimate favorite nail salon in Houston. I discovered this gem 3 years ago and have not gone anywhere else for my mani/ pedi since. The work is clean, and high quality. For my regular mani/ pedi, paint is finished neatly and it lasts for weeks. I am willing to drive past at least 10 other nail salons from my place to get here.
My pedicure was awesome and the prices were very reasonable! Google has their closing time wrong but they were happy to get me in 30 min before closing and took their time on me. They even insisted I stay after closing so my toes would dry 😊 Highly recommend this place.
My go to place for years now!!! Will not disappoint! Best place for shellac. They do such a great job. Everyone is very friendly and welcoming! Tell them Bella sent you 🙂
This place is great and everyone is so nice! I went there to have my nails done for my wedding and asked for a shellac polish on my nails. The next day I had a change of heart about what I wanted my nails to look like and went in asking for something completely different. The technician was super gentle removing the shellac from my nails since it had just been placed the day before and did an amazing job on the design that I asked for. Her attention to detail was nothing short of impressive as she free handed the intricate design I requested. Thank you all so much for the wonderful work you do!
