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 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 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
What causes your acrylic or gel nails to lift?
This can happen for many reasons. Acrylics take 24 – 48 hours to fully cure, and a slight knock during that time can cause the acrylics to lift.
Other reasons for lifting include: diseased nail plate, not maintaining regular infills, nicotine, fruit acids such as lemons, oranges, and other citrus fruits, harsh detergents, using a acetone based nail polish remover, medication, stress, misuse of nails, occupation, picking and biting, excessive use of oils and creams, or even just wearing the nail too long can cause lifting.
What is a pedicure?
A pedicure is a cosmetic treatment of the feet and toenails, analogous to a manicure. Pedicures are done for cosmetic, therapeutic purposes. They are popular throughout the world and especially among women but has recently grown in popularity by men. Pedicures include care not only for the toenails; dead skin cells are scrubbed off the bottom of the feet using a rough stone. Your foot will then be treated to granular exfoliation, moisturizing, and a massage
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”.
Kim was absolutely amazing and took care of the group I brought here. Did engagement nails and she made them beautiful, and was so quick too! Definitely coming back!
I would not go anywhere else for my nails. They are clean and efficient. Kim has done permanent makeup on my eyebrows that is amazing. I love how fast and friendly they are.
Best pedicure ever! Kim, the owner was great. She was super friendly and did a wonderful job on my feet, I also dig that her family was there helping. Support local small businesses.
Relaxing environment, great service and overall perfect experience. We were visiting Reno from out of town and decided to stop in for a quick refresh while Christmas shopping. Laurie was fantastic.
I booked a pedicure with Laurie and had a great time. She gave the most relaxing foot & leg massage I literally almost fell asleep. Great conversation, calm & clean environment. I love that they have online booking – makes it easy to plan ahead!
The owner does nails and works there every day. I have never had a bad experience in there. It smells amazing and they offer so many services! My nails always look so awesome when I leave. They make sure to do the best job possible. I love this place so much and will never go anywhere else.
Such an awesome experience because even though I was a walk in I was taken care right away by Jenny. Also I thought I heard someone tell her that her appointment was ready but she still took her time and made sure that my nails were perfect. This is the reason why I always go there for my nails. 100% reccomend.
We came here because they were the only place in the whole area that could get 3 people in at one time for a pedicure and I am so happy that we came here. Every single person who works here is awesome. So nice, so friendly and personable. They did an amazing job and were fun. People I would literally hang out with on a daily bases. Don’t wait to get pampered go here now!!!!
I really don’t get some of these reviews. I have been going to Kim and Lucky Star for over a year now. Kim has done my nails, Pedi’s, facials, and she microbladed my eyebrows that are totally amazing at a very fair price. I can’t say enough nice things about Kim, her staff and this place. I have NEVER had a problem here. Kim is one of the most talented individuals I have ever seen…she does IT ALL! My appointments are always on time and she is SUPER efficient and friendly. I’ve referred all my friends and family to her. She also does my sister and moms nails, facials, etc. Not one issue…EVER! Thank you Kim!
I love that I can make appointments through the webpage (at least 24 hours in advance). I’ve never had issues receiving prompt service if I have an appointment and am on time. The staff always asks if I want a beverage, I usually go for water but they have wine and beer too. I quickly found that Jeni is my favorite nail tech for fills/cat eye gel. Haven’t had a polish chip or nail fall off yet (I get new fills every other week). Laurie Marie does a swell job on my pedicures too 🙂
