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.
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
Can i book more than one treatment at the same time?
Yes. However, our system only allows one booking at a time. Most of our treatments have a drop down add on list so you can click on a specific treatment and have a drop down list to choose from. Where there isn’t a drop then, then take note of the time and duration of your first treatment, checkout your booking and click schedule another appointment. Make sure it follows after your first treatment you booked.
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
What's the difference between tips and sculpture?
Plastic tips are placed on your natural nails and cut and filed to your desired length and shape before applying acrylic or gel.
Nail Sculptures differ on the other hand. Nail forms are placed at the tip of your nails and product is applied according to the desired length. While the product is drying, the nails will be pinched on the sides to give it more of a natural look. After the product has completely dried the nail form will be removed leaving you with a beautiful and natural nail shape. This system leaves you with a more durable set of nails compared to the tip system. However, this does take slightly longer and costs a few pounds more.
Can men have manicures or pedicures?
Absolutely. We’re a unisex brand and all treatments are available to you regardless of gender. We’ve noticed that most of our male clients book in for a classical manicure or classical pedicure without paint
What’s difference between gel nails and shellac nails?
A gel manicure and a Shellac manicure are essentially the same thing: long-lasting polishes cured under UV lamps. The difference is that “gel nails” or “gel manicure” is the generic term for any nails done under a UV lamp which includes shellac, whilst Shellac itself a brand of gel polish by the company Creative Nail Design (CND). It’s comparable to “Henry Hoover” which was so popular that people often call a vacuum cleaner a “Hoover”.
This place is an absolute gem! I’ve been going to other places to get my nails done and they’ve all either said they can’t do what I want or they do it and I leave disappointed. I’ve never been treated as well as I was at Lotus Day Spa! Jenna was kind, and paid exceptional attention to detail. She took her time and made sure that my nails were perfect for my wedding day! This was my first time here and it will not be my last!
I just recently moved out to this area and had to find a new nail spot. This place was amazing. Clean environment, courteous staff, nice color choices, etc. Jayleen was my nail technician and she was nothing short of amazing! Definitely recommend her and this spa! 🙂
I went in for the welcome package, there was a mix up when I first arrived but after it was cleared up, Jayleen was absolutely phenomenal. She took excellent care of me from the massage to the facial, then my nails and eyebrows. Jayleen took her time and did not rush, she did such quality work that I will definitely be back to the Lotus Day Spa and they now have a regular customer. If you want to truly be pampered, this is the place!
Beyond love this shop. Best customer service and they do a killer job on your nails! Been going there for years and I wouldn’t have it any other way. ♡♡
Some of the most talented and sweet people you have ever had the pleasure of meeting
Will return again and again
They do an awesome job every time I go there! I moved here about four years ago and this is the first one I found and loved!
Never had a dissatisfied visit here. calm and relaxing environment, extremely helpful and kind receptionist, excellent service, and clean. Only place I will go to get my nails done!
I am a semi-regular at Lotus and I always enjoy their services, the atmosphere, and the pampering. Lotus is always very clean and all of the staff and Miss Tina treat you so well. I havent had a pedi since Dec due to knee surgery so my boyfriend and I made an appt today. Oh what an awesome treat. We both feel so good and regenerated during and after our spa hours. Plus flip flop season is coming so the piggies have to look good. All of the start do a great job. Today Stephen did mine the massage was so good.
Jayleen is a Picasso of nails.. Work of art.. Perfection.. First time with her and have scheduled my next nail treatment.. Can’t say enough of this place.. Professionalism! Staff are accomodating.. Not intimidating.
This place was the best! I definitely got my money’s worth. I went to a different place a few weeks ago and got the same type of services but the quality of Lotus was 3 times better for the same price. Linda took her time with mt pedicure and massaged my feet and legs for probably 7 or 8 minutes each which I appreciated so much since I run a lot and am on my feet the majority of the day at work. I got dip powder also (hands) and LOVE how natural she made them look. The other place didn’t go far enough towards my cuticle AND made them super thick which made them look fake. I have a long and curved nail bed and Linda did a fabulous job at giving me a more natural and classy look. I’m a fan!
