How is gel polish or Shellac polish removed?
Gel polish is very difficult to remove with standard nail polish remover and if you peel it off it can damage your nails so it is always advisable to book in for professional take off at Exotic Nails & Spa.
This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Technician will then use tools to remove the last of the polish and neaten up your nails ready to go!
How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Exotic Nails & Spa, 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 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
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.
Can men have manicures or pedicures?
Absolutely. We’re a unisex brand and all treatments are available to you regardless of gender. We’ve noticed that most of our male clients book in for a classical manicure or classical pedicure without paint

I love it! Everyone is so friendly. Great place to relax and get pampered.
This place is great! I live in Boston, but needed a pedicure while visiting my mother and found this place online. It is super clean, has a great selection of colors and the service is wonderful. I would definitely be a regular if I lived closer, but will definitely be back when I’m in the area.
Went here 5 times now, I love it. Place is very clean and pretty. I had Elena, who is amazing and makes you feel comfortable there. I had gotten dip nails and she did an amazing job there perfectly cut and square and beautiful. Highly recommend
I love this place! They are very clean & friendly. I love their variety of colors and services.
Beautiful, newly renovated salon. Incredibly detailed work! Absolutely love my acrylics done by Vallerie. Will definitely be going back again.
First off, I found this place while researching another nail spa. I live about an hour away from this place and wanted to try it. It’s so hard to find good nail techs. I will definitely be back. Vy did an amazing job with my nails! She was so welcoming and so detailed. I work in costumer service so I always look for people that treat me the way I treat my customers. This was it! Don’t look any further than here, this is the place to go. They cut your cuticles without you asking, give you a hand massage after and lastly give you almost anything you ask for! Thank you again Vy!
Love this place! Just moved to town and saw Exotic Nails recently opened. Beautiful salon, very clean and great service.
