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.
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
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.
What is a pedicure?
A pedicure is a cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails, analogous to a manicure. Pedicures are done for cosmetic, therapeutic purposes. They are popular throughout the world and especially among women but has recently grown in popularity by men. Pedicures include care not only for the toenails; dead skin cells are scrubbed off the bottom of the feet using a rough stone. Your foot will then be treated to granular exfoliation, moisturizing, and a massage
What's the difference between tips and sculpture?
Plastic tips are placed on your natural nails and cut and filed to your desired length and shape before applying acrylic or gel.
Nail Sculptures differ on the other hand. Nail forms are placed at the tip of your nails and product is applied according to the desired length. While the product is drying, the nails will be pinched on the sides to give it more of a natural look. After the product has completely dried the nail form will be removed leaving you with a beautiful and natural nail shape. This system leaves you with a more durable set of nails compared to the tip system. However, this does take slightly longer and costs a few pounds more.
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
What’s difference between gel nails and shellac nails?
A gel manicure and a Shellac manicure are essentially the same thing: long-lasting polishes cured under UV lamps. The difference is that “gel nails” or “gel manicure” is the generic term for any nails done under a UV lamp which includes shellac, whilst Shellac itself a brand of gel polish by the company Creative Nail Design (CND). It’s comparable to “Henry Hoover” which was so popular that people often call a vacuum cleaner a “Hoover”.

Everyone is so talented, and beautiful new atmosphere. And so friendly!
Prompt, friendly service. Newly renovated, clean and inviting atmosphere.
I had a great experience here. I got a gel manicure for $25. The staff were kind and well-mannered. They did an excellent job on my manicure and even threw in a short but sweet hand and arm massage. Will definitely be back!
Hung does such a great job. I am one of the most pickiest people and he seems to just get what I want every time. My real nails r crap and he always seems to make them look real!!! I don’t really ever review places so you know they do a great job!
It was super busy when I walked in I had an appointment they got me in right away was quick to get started and finished in a decent time. I got exactly what I ask for. High recommended!
The business was sold a couple of months ago. The new owners are wonderful. They are professional and extremely thorough. I go every couple of weeks. Love my nails!
I’ve been going to happy nails for about 4 years now and they never disappoint. I am SO picky about how my nails look but they always surprise me with their talent!!
Michelle did a fabulous job! I came to her after seeing her nails on this page and showed her an inspo picture and she nailed it spot on!!! I have found my new place 😁
I have been going to Happy Nails since the beginning of summer and I have always been satisfied. I was very happy with my trip there today, there’s a newer guy there and he did a great job on my dip nails! He was very precise and engaged. 10/10 recommend him (will update with a name once I know!). All staff are very friendly and good at what they do! ☺️ Very accommodating to walk-ins too!
So far I’ve had a really great experience with this nail salon in Stoughton. So close to my house too. I was nervous to do a dip manicure since I didn’t want it to damage my nails. I tried it once at another salon and they left my nails with an indention at the base of my nail bed. It took month to grow out. But the group here is efficient, quick, and doesn’t leave the dip on too thick. So far so good!
