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 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!
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 KC Nails & Spa 8 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 French manicure?
The standard style of a French manicure is when the fingernails are painted pale pink with a white band at the tip. At KC Nails & Spa 8 you can choose to have the nail bed clear with any colour tip
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
The best experience every time I go.Everyone that’s works there truly cares about their customers and the nicest people ever.I would recommend KC NailsSpa 8 to everyone.I get soooo many compliments on my nails! Love them
Really nice staff! Every time I came in they take their time doing my nails. If you know anything then you’d know that’s a plus! They’re also going to be closed here in a few weeks for remodeling. Can’t wait to see the new and improved place!
I’ve been here several times and always had a great experience. During the pandemic they actually renovated the inside and it is clean with limited people inside. Will continue to use. Recommend making an appt.
Very professional & great customer service. I got the SNS manicure and regular pedicure which turned out amazing. The prices were very reasonable as well. I will be a returning customer.
What a wonderful place! They did such a great job and I truly enjoyed my experience 🙂
This business has great service, quick and professional. I never had an issue with all the pedicures I received here. I would definitely go back and recommend it to my friends. Very convenient since I live nearby.
Outstanding service! I’ve never had a nail tech as thorough and detailed in all the years I’ve been getting my nails done. Huge variety of dip colors, reasonable price & good atmosphere
We were able to get right in on Wednesday evening! I loved my gel manicure and pedicure! Great service we will definitely be back!
My husband Vince and I have been going here for the last 6months once or twice a month and they are absolutely the best. They always do great work and very accommodating 😊
The staff is so friendly and always does such a great job! I’ve never had a problem here and wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Absolutely love this place.
