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.
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 It’s all About you Nail and Spa 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.

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

The waiting massage chairs are worth it. Prior to being seated at at the pedicures there are massage chairs that are out of this world.
Pedicure was awesome. My group did the jello package which was $50. Massage, hot stone, paraffin, and your water becomes a jelly. Overall good service with minor hiccups since water heater was not working to full capacity. We had an appt at 1:45 PM but didn’t get back there until 2:30 PM. We understood that it was packed. I would come back again. We did not feel the service was rushed.
I always enjoy coming here for my girly maintenance. It’s clean, it’s inviting and the massage chairs are a huge hit with me. It’s a one-stop shop, so to speak. They do hair, nails, facials, permanent makeup, eyelashes, microblading, and more! Check it out for yourself, but I recommend an appointment, especially for the weekends, because they are super busy!
I love this place! I had gotten dips done at another location, and they were poorly done. I came here and they got them taken off and pit new ones on, and showed me what to look for as signs it’s not being done properly. They have a pretty good selection of colors in dip, acrylic, and regular polish. The nail art the do is beautiful, and the prices are very reasonable. I love going here and will continue to do so!
Katie is the best! Great at manicures and pedicures. And she keeps the place running it appears. You won’t be disappointed in her attitude and her work…
I love the atmosphere of this nail salon and always have a great experience. Molly is amazing! She takes her time and knows what she’s doing. Always have great service here. 👍🏻
They were super accommodating for our party! The staff was friendly, professional, and very talented! Yang was my nail tech, and was absolutely phenomenal! It was a very clean & relaxing atmosphere. Can’t wait for our next visit!
They always do my nails beautifully! I love this place sooo much! I love all their people. This set of nails was done by Yang.
KATIE KATIE KATIE!!! Katie is literally a life saver, and one of the best artists/humans on the planet. I was in a hurry and unfortunately went to a salon *rhymes with shermshadies nails* that absolutely butchered my nails (i.e. see photos below) and I stopped in to see Katie and she not only fixed the disaster that my nails were, she was able to salvage my tips so I didn’t have to start completely over. If you need a nail girl that is the BOMB at nails and ombre she is your gal! Thank you thank you Katie!!
I got my nails done by Katie and she was so kind and friendly! She was willing to have conversations with me and she made the experience really fun! The place was really pretty and clean it looked like a mini palace. The nails were amazing I showed her a design I wanted and she was very excited to do it, it ended up being amazing and I loved it! If you are considering going here I encourage you to go, this place is worth your money.
This place is amazing! The salon itself is beautiful!! They were super nice, organized, and clean. 10/10 recommend to anyone looking for an awesome nail salon that goes above and beyond for their costumers!
