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!
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.
What is a manicure ?
Nails classical manicure consists of a warm hand soak, filing and shaping the free edge of the nails, pushing and clipping (with a cuticle pusher and cuticle nippers) and application of fingernail polish. The more advanced treatments will take longer and vary in treatment methodology and price.
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
Beautiful place! The people are very nice and very good. I will definitely go back.
My daughter and I both had SNS, my nails natural and she did tips. We were thrilled with both. Super friendly staff.
There are many techs who will get your nails top notch. The scenery inside is beautiful and music is often played for relaxation. Much better than most!
Had a great experience here! Best pedicure I’ve ever had(Sophia did a wonderful job!) and my nails look amazing! (Thanks Ean!) I will definitely be back🤍
absolutely loved this place! was looking to get my nails done in a pinch before a weekend getaway and lavish nails delivered. the service was quick and easy, while the environment was friendly and warm. definitely will be back!
Love this shop and NEVER will go to anyone else; learned my lesson. They are so professional and so nice. I feel comfortable there and no judgement. They also recommend you different nail types to you. Amazing nail place in Lexington. Best around.
This place is not only beautiful but the staff are super helpful. Even though I was the last client they took their time and did a beautiful job!
Lavish the only salon I’ve been to in the city that can keep up with my ideas! Amy is phenomenal at executing anything I throw her way. Definitely found my go-to salon.
This place is so nice! They are taking all sorts of precautions because of Covid. I got a hot oil pedicure and it was one of the best I’ve had. They have a ton of color options and even have a little wine bar inside. I will definitely be back!
This was my first visit to this salon as I’m somewhat new to the area. I called and made an appointment and they got me right in when I came. (This isn’t always the case even with an appointment.) The salon is very clean with lots of color options and they even offer a huge bar service, waxing, and lashes. I just came for a full set of SNS nails with tips.
