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 …Nails
This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your La Nails & Spa. Technician will then use tools to remove the last of the polish and neaten up your nails ready to go!
How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Trieu Nails London, your technician will leave your polish to dry for about 5 minutes before applying a quick-dry spray, which accelerates the drying process. They will then check to see if your manicure still needs drying – it is you’ll have to sit back just a little longer to avoid smudges!
In total, around 10-15 minutes after the last topcoat, your manicure should be touch dry and good to go. Just try to avoid knocking it (easily done by rummaging in your bag!) for about an hour until the polish has fully cured through all the coats.
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.
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
Can i put acrylics back on immediately after soaking off the old acrylics?
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
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.
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
Wendy is amazing! When I can’t decide what color I want, she chooses and I am never dissatisfied! Wonderful customer service, you won’t be disappointed!
I had been going to another nail place for 2 yrs, but happened to walk in LA nails to get my niece’s nails done for beginning of school. Larry took extra time with the 9 yr old and put 3 coats of blue gel polish on her. I was so pleased that I switched to him right away. He does a wonderful job, doesn’t rush through it, wants to make it as perfect as possible. And the pedicure with the hot stones was wonderful!

Technition was gentle, professional, explained choices and pricing. Several options and types of treatments available. Very reasonable.
LA Nails has cute little kids chairs, a massage chair and they are so nice. They have a rewards program and are already on the cheaper side. Literally have always done an amazing job, no complaints. I enjoy the 2 younger ladies that sit next to each other. They are always practicing on fake nails and studying the art. Was sad to see Lisa leave but Can’t say enough great things about this place.
Love love love them!! This is the second time I have used them and had a great experience both times! I wanted something fun for Christmas and Lisa more than delivered!!
Phenomenal job on my pedicure. It was one of the best pedicures I’ve had in awhile. He also listened to what I wanted for my gel manicure. I would highly recommend.
The service was absolutely lovely! The workers were so so friendly, and they made sure to put their full attentions into their crafts.I’d highly recommend coming here, clean environment and an amazing staff.
I went with my 4 year old and 8 year old and my mother and they made it such a stress free experience. I don’t see my self going anywhere else. They were so polite and patient with my kids and very attentive. I would highly recommend this place to everyone I know.!
