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 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
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’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.
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.
This business is getting more busy every time I go in there. They are very efficient following Covid and they are clean and friendly . I really don’t see myself going anywhere else. I found my happy Nail place. The new techniques are just amazing to me. They do what they usually do with the gel procedure , then go onto smear a powder like an eyeshadow , I believe it’s called chrome it has the most beautiful colors I’ve ever seen. It’s like pearl and it has never lost its color or come off. It stays just like the day I get it put on. Henry you are so artistic as well as a perfectionist!!! Next time I will leave a photo. I know everyone has their favs but you really need to check this out. It’s pretty close to magic dust.
I haven’t found a nail place I like until I went here.
She checked multiple times to make sure I liked my nails while she was doing them and actually took the time to make sure they looked good.
My sister in law goes here and loves this place soon thought I’d give it a try, and I’m so glad I did. I will always come here to get my nails done and I’ll recommend this place to anyone looking to get their nails done too. Thank you so much Hi-Tek Nails!
Went here for the first time today. Everything was very clean and sterile, watched them open autoclaved packs for all their instruments. Good service, for my husband’s pedicure he got at least a 25 minute foot/leg massage – very nice! The workers definitely don’t try to make conversation, but that’s how I like it. And you get a complimentary drink. They also have super cute kid’s pedicure chairs! Taking my daughters here next time!
Nail ARTISTS work here! The staff are knowledgeable and personable. We got pedicures today and it was a relaxing experience. The Massage chair was great. My expectations were completely exceeded. They were professional and detailed. Very clean disinfectant process! Highly recommend Hi Tech Nails!
Beautiful work!! My new favorite nail spot. Was able to get in right away & everyone was super nice. Masks on all around & it felt like a safe, relaxing experience
Excellent my service. A very clean place… and he best, Richard

I have been coming to Hi-Tek Nails in lake Stevens for almost a year now and have never been disappointed. I came in on 1-28-2021 and I have to say it was one of the best experiences I’ve had at a nail Salon in a long time. I went in not knowing what I wanted to have done on my nails. All I knew is that I wanted to have something for Valentine’s Day and Diana helped me figure out what to do then I told her to have fun with them. They came out absolutely beautiful. I love them so much! I’d definitely recommend this place.
This place is the best place I have ever been to. I didn’t ask for the guys name but he was really good. He was very gentle to. I got medium/long coffin nails with a design and it was a full set. The price was $48 and I tipped him so $50 in total. I wish I would have tipped him more. But they are very clean and polite. First time I have ever been there too. So a big thank you for your guys service:)
Best nail salon I have ever gone too! Everyone is AMAZING
