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 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!
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 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’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
What’s difference between gel nails and shellac nails?
A gel manicure and a Shellac manicure are essentially the same thing: long-lasting polishes cured under UV lamps. The difference is that “gel nails” or “gel manicure” is the generic term for any nails done under a UV lamp which includes shellac, whilst Shellac itself a brand of gel polish by the company Creative Nail Design (CND). It’s comparable to “Henry Hoover” which was so popular that people often call a vacuum cleaner a “Hoover”.
Nina is very professional and gives the customer exactly what they want….
Usually I’m very picky about my nails and toes but now I just let her work her magic.. The pedicures will put you to sleep. I would highly recommend diamond nails
Best customer services ever! Nina was so wonderful & I truly enjoy my experience every time I am there. Thank you so much for everything! ❤
Amazing staff did a wonderful job on my pedicure and my nails. This was my first time here I will return again. My cousin told me about this place.
Nina did her thing to my real nail, people thought I had tips but they are so natural looking
My husband and I were pleased with the detail that they gave to all treatments! Well done ladies!
I have been going to Nina for about a year now and I almost always bring my daughter and mom with me. We always leave happy and content. She does an amazing job ever time my mom usually has Nina’s husband do her toe’s and nails he does amazing as well and there is one more lady that works there and she’s really good also. Sometimes you may have to wait even if you have an appointment but it’s only humane nature. You have customers that may have a special request that tends to take extra time but it’s worth the wait. Nina is very kind and I am so happy with the service her and her workers provide ever time. Rest assure this is definitely the nail salon to go to.
I miss all the extra perks. But it was still very nice to have a nice pedicure beautiful job no one.
First time at this place and now I’m definitely coming back. My nails are beautiful. The man who did them paid so much attention to detail and made sure they were perfect. The young lady who put on the gems did immaculate. It took less than hour to get a full set with the gems.
Nina and her staff are wonderful. I have been getting my nails done there for about a year now. I fell in love with the place on day one. Any ideas I take to her she works her magic. I even referred my family and friends who go to her shop now as well. I love the nail products my gel always last. My pedicures are the best. Her husband does an awesome job. The business is clean and neat. Thanks for the good work.
This place is great! The technician is very knowledgeable and talented. I get dip nails and it’s very fast in under an hour. Pedicures are relaxing! Love it! Prices are reasonable!
