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.
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 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

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.
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
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.
Was incredibly busy- the staff remained professional throughout and kept track of customers well. The nails were exactly what I requested, and have held up through housework and childcare
First visit and I was greeted immediately when I entered and seated with Lily. She did a great job! I will definitely be returning. I have returned numerous times and always get great service.
I love this nail salon. They’re always so busy , so I suggest making a nail appointment but it’s so worth it . I definitely recommend you check them out !
The few times I have visited this salon, the customer service has been great. Everyone is very nice and I am always pleased with the services. The prices are great as well.
Phoebe is literally the best nail tech I’ve ever been to. Her nail art is amazing and the acrylics you sculpts are perfectly shaped. I get compliments on my nails every single day.
I drive all the way from Austin to Bastrop because she does a better job on my nails and she’s more reasonably priced.
Kim did an amazing job on my mom’s pedicure!! Her feet looked amzamaz and my mother enjoyed the leg massage as well. Plus they were super cool and let me sit in the massage chair while my mom was getting her pedicure, so I even got a nice massage while waiting with my mom. They were friendly and offered us beverages as well.
This place is amazing everyone with a positive attitude very welcoming. They replaced my daughters nail without no questions. I recommend this place to everyone who loves to be pampered 💯 wish I could give more than 5 stars.
I always have my nails done her the best nail shop in bastrop by far . Nice people love the nail art they do the best in town my nails stay on I have never had them break . My lil boy sometimes gose in with me and they are so nice about that
First time going here. Not my normal nail salon, but they were open on Sunday and my place was not! I stopped in to get a quick repair on the manicure I had the day before. They replace two of the nails that broke a day later. Did such a good job that I will definitely have to start going there instead. By the end of the week this week almost all my other nails are broken, except for the two that they repaired!! The ladies there were very nice and helpful. Also the repair was extremely affordable. I recommend you stop by and try it for yourself
My daughter and I went for the first time today. We were both very happy. We stopped going to our old salon, because they were sloppy and rude. Today, the gentleman(I think his name was Desi, not sure), at Great nails, was so nice and took his time and would ask throughout if I liked my nails, as he went along. He didn’t get irritated if I asked for something to be filed or if I had a question. I felt very much at ease. Everyone was so friendly. They seem to genuinely care about doing a good job. Great nails will be our new salon from now on! We love it there!
