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 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
What is a French manicure?
The standard style of a French manicure is when the fingernails are painted pale pink with a white band at the tip. At our salon you can choose to have the nail bed clear with any colour tip
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.
What is a manicure ?
Nails classical manicure consists of a warm hand soak, filing and shaping the free edge of the nails, pushing and clipping (with a cuticle pusher and cuticle nippers) and application of fingernail polish. The more advanced treatments will take longer and vary in treatment methodology and price.
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.
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
The staff is fabulous and knowledgeable

Lucy did an amazing job on my daughter’s nails. Amazing design!!
Love, love, love the service and atmosphere at this salon. I have not once been unsatisfied with the service I have received and never feel pressured to pay extra for something I don’t really want. The staff is super friendly and helpful!
My cousin got me a gift card to get my nails done for Christmas. I’ve never been there before and I decided to do something different. I let the nail salon lady choose the length, shape and color of my nails. She did an amazing job and I LOVE THE ombré she did. It was a really good price and great turn out. Will definitely be returning in 2 weeks!
Best nail salon in the area. Friendly, and very clean. Also have the BEST selection of colors and I love that they have the shellac colors matched up with the regular polish so your hands and feet always match! I also love to call ahead and make an appointment. Saves time on both ends and your always guaranteed your tech of choice!
I have been to a handful of nail salons around Louisville and this is my favorite one. Service is very friendly and they will always try to get you in with someone, even if you don’t have an appointment. The spa is large and they have many technicians working at any given time. I have had my gels done by several different people here and they have always been very meticulous. Gels last at least 2 weeks and the price isn’t bad. Would recommend Nikki or Kim!
First time customer… I’d been looking for a place to go near my house and I FOUND IT! As soon as you walk in you’re greeted with a great atmosphere, it smells clean and it looks fabulous and quite fancy! I got the DELUXE Pedi and Mani and LOVED IT! It was great and the gentleman who took care of me was amazingly sweet and funny.
Definitely coming back!
