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.
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!
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
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
This is my first time here and I’m in LOVE. Chi did my nails and absolutely nailed it! She took the time to make sure I was happy with the length, shape, color and design. She was also friendly and everyone here is super welcoming!
I’m so glad I found this nail salon. I highly recommend this place and will be coming back again!
I love DC nails! I have been several times and every time they do an amazing job. You can tell they truly care about their customers and want to make sure you have a good experience. My boyfriend thought he didn’t like pedicures until i convinced him to come here with me. After experiencing a pedicure here, they showed him what a pedicure is supposed to be like and now he loves it!
Great job! My nails are not fancy but they made me feel like I was very important and the work was amazing! Very Happy and Very Please with the finished product. I don’t know how they turned my rugged working hands into looking like a princess but miracles do happen. My feet! Wow! Cannot describe the difference in the start to finish!
Best job in a pedicure ever!!! Thank you Tony and your beautiful wife. You are both amazing.
I always have Chi do the dipping process on my nails. I have been all over the world, from the States to Dubai, having my nails done and Chi is by far the best nail artist I have worked with.
DC Nails is clean and friendly. Top notch service every time.
I’m so happy this salon is here! It’s so nice to have a nail salon so close to home. Chi and Tony are both very talented and friendly. The salon itself is always kept clean and tidy. I was shocked by the pricing too; I was expecting to be charged upwards of $80 like I’m used to but it was about $30 cheaper! I’m so happy I found this place and I’ll definitely be back!

This is by far the cleanest nail salon I’ve ever been to. It is so organized, spotless, uses new tools for manicures which is important. I’m not easy to impress as I’ve seen all kinds of salons over the course of years, however, this time I was just amazed and happy to have found it. Love that it’s in Herriman, that they take their time to do the job right and not rush you out. Love their check in system that collects points for you. Chi and Tony are great at what they do, so professional, kind and accommodating! This is a must try place for anyone looking for great manicures and pedicures.

This place is impeccably clean and well organized. The prices are lower than expected especially for the quality and service DC Nails provides. I like that they use an electronic check-in system and towels are new and soft. Appointments are encouraged and I hear they are able to accommodate groups as well. I will definitely be back.
This is the best nail salon in Herriman! My nails have never looked so beautiful! I get compliments all the time on my nails! The owners are very professional and friendly! I recommend this salon to everyone!
I’m so happy that I found this place! I’ve been looking for some place that could do a French ombré and
Chi did a wonderful job! It was exactly what I was looking for. I will definitely be going back.
Great experience! Chi and Tony were so nice and fun to chat with. They took their time and didn’t rush. Love the scent options they have for their scrubs. They also are fairly priced which is awesome. I will definitely go back!
