How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Drips Nail Bar, 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.
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!
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
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.
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.

Today I took my 6yr old daughter to Drips Nail Bar and had the BEST experience! The owners were so kind and the lady that did my daughters nails did a FANTASTIC job!!! She added a little diamond to the middle of my daughters flower and my girl thought that was the coolest thing ever! We will be back soon!!!
Just had my nails done by Kathy! I absolutely love them!!! And she was so sweet and nice. I think I found my new favorite place! Will definitely be back here for Kathy. Thank you!!!
Finally found a nail place that does great work. My nails are very weak but I don’t want acrylic nails. Kathy is amazing. I get dip powder done from her and my nails last for 3 weeks. Been seeing her for 3 months straight now and not once has my nails cracked or rip. I am a medical assistant so I’m constantly washing my hands and I lift weights at the gym. Everyone there is so friendly and I appreciate them every single time I go in!
Great service, clean place, friendly staff and they are always fast too! Very glad I found them. They’re are the best nail place I’ve been to in a long time!
Drip Nail Bar is fabulous. I have my manicure, pedicures
done there every two weeks. They consistently do an excellent job. Last month I switched to them do do my eyelashes. The girl who did them previously did a lousy job. The lashes from dip lasted for over two weeks and looked fabulous then. Going this week to have my eyebrows tattooed. Can’t wait. I highly recommend Drip for all of your beauty needs.
I love this place! Everyone is so friendly, and I always leave happy. I get my lashes, nails, pedicure, and eyebrows done here and they always do a great job!!!
Kathy did my holiday nails here today and I’m so pleased! They are exactly what I wanted. It’s such a clean and professional establishment and the music is great!
Kathy is the best! I luv going in there everyone is so nice. Its very clean and has all the safety measures in place for everyone to be safe.
My friend told me about this place for a midday mani-pedi. I’m glad I came. The establishment is clean and the staff are so nice. My pedicure was quick and nicely done . My friend was also very pleased with her gel set and pedicure. They got a new customer in me because I’ll definitely be back!
Went to Drips Nail Bar today for the first time with my two sisters and my daughter. My sister invited me as this is her place of coming. I am so happy we decided to join her. The entire staff there are so friendly and nice! Most importantly, they did absolutely great on my finger and toe nails along with my daughters! Extremely satisfied with everything about this place! Definitely will be going back.
