How is gel polish or Shellac polish removed?
Gel polish is very difficult to remove with standard nail polish remover and if you peel it off it can damage your nails so it is always advisable to book in for professional take off at Kiwii Nail Spa.
This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your (Name Salon) Technician will then use tools to remove the last of the polish and neaten up your nails ready to go!
Do you use MMA in your acrylic extensions?
Never! Our Acrylic powders are EMA (Ethyl Methacrylate) and (nails salon name) is rigorously inspected by the local authority annually to ensure we uphold this.
Salons that offer acrylic extensions at cheap prices are often using MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) which is used in the dental industry. MMA bonds to your nails too harshly, leading to some really bad damage to your natural nail – as a chemical MMA was never designed to come into contact with skin and nails – it is too hard to be used for acrylic extensions and can tear the nail from the nail bed easily!
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!
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 Kiwii Nail 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.
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
First time today at this nail salon. Clean. Professional staff. Had a Gel Manicure and a Collagen pedicure done. Relaxing and one of the best mani/pedi I have had. Would definitely go back.
Everything about this salon is 5 stars ⭐️ !! It’s modern , clean , organized and really driven to customer service!! You won’t be disappointed!
I have never got a pedicure and omg my first experience the staff did a excellent job. I will definitely go back.
So, In my 21 years of life, I have never got a pedicure done. And when I thought about getting one, I always hesitated because I was ashamed of how bad I let my feet go. I felt like no one would want to do it. When I arrived in the salon, it felt homey and relaxing. The technicians (especially the lovely lady Kat, who serviced me) were all professional! They were not afraid of touching the customers feet, and made sure I was completely comfortable. Everything the technicians were using, including the equipment and store, were clean! My grandmother, who’s diabetic, also tagged along. And I wasn’t afraid of her getting any little cuts due to equipment that wasn’t sanitized! We both received the Spa Pedicures which left both of our feet feeling soft and moisturized, along with the leg massage we received. I wish I would’ve taken a before and after picture, but the results are definitely great! I am definitely returning, even though I’m a 30 minute drive away. And I just want to say again the technicians were great, especially Kat!!!
Enjoying a very relaxing day getting Kiwi Signature Gold Spa. Wonderful atmosphere and very professional. This pedicure also comes with a paraffin treatment.
This has been my go to place since the day it opened. Tammy, the owner, is dedicated to her clients and will do whatever she can to accommodate them. I don’t encourage it but I’ve called her at the last minute in an emergency and she has managed to fit me in.
The quality of the salon, cleanliness, and staff are exceptional. Tammy herself does my gel nails and they look so natural, not heavy and thick like some I’ve seen. I love the many color options, so many it’s hard to choose sometimes.
Please call ahead and get an appointment; the word is out on this excellent salon.
Kiwii is the BEST nail salon in the area. It is exceptionally clean. Tami goes above and beyond following covid guidelines. Spa pedicures are to die for and UV Gel leaves your nails looking great and never chips. They have the largest color selection I have ever seen!!! Friendly professional environment! I love Tami and her staff!
I have been going to Tammy and Brian for my nails since 2009 and I have not once EVER left my appointments disappointed. They do an amazing job and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I would recommend Kiwi Salon to every and anyone.
I have been going to Kiwi since they opened! They always take me on time, always do the best job on my nails, and we always have a good time! Especially now during the pandemic they have done everything to keep themselves and their customers safe. Every time I go there I feel so welcomed, and I would tell anyone to go here! I even dragged my fiancé, and my dad to come with me and they loved their pedicures!
