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 …Nails
This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your Gem Nail Bar 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 Gem 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.
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 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. At Trieu Nails London 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 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.
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
I haven’t had my nails done in quite a while and had my own nails. The technician, Hannah, put a powder over my nails and gave me a perfect French manicure. I love the look and will be back for sure.
‘Nice place, fast service, nails looked great! Has a lot of services to offer and the staff was friendly.
Would definitely go back but unfortunately I live in another state! They did my pedicure and manicure perfectly and quickly. I am very pleased.
They were pretty quick and affordable. They have GREAT customer service and offer complimentary beverages. I did the Rockstar powder color and LOVE IT!
I love coming here. Everyone is always really nice, the chairsand general ambiance are relaxing, free drinks, lots of colors, and they do a really great job!
Such an excellent pedicure! Everyone was welcoming and nice.
I have been going to this nail salon ever since they opened about a year ago and they are the best! I have tried all the other salons on second and overall they surpass them in every way!
I came here on a whim after a disappointing experience at another salon and I’m so happy I did!! Everything was clean, sanitary and they had extra safety measures in place for Covid. Kori did the most amazing job on my nails and I will definitely be coming back!!
This is the first nail salon I’ve been to since the beginning of COVID. And they did such a great job of making me feel comfortable in the environment, they were enforcing health safety guidelines very well and of course, I walked away with amazing nails definitely coming back.
Great spot for nails. Highly recommended.
Attentive stuff, lots of options for the color of you nails.
Your Manikur will last long time!
