How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Luminous Nail, your technician will leave your polish to dry for about 5 minutes before applying a quick-dry spray, which acceletrieurates 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 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
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
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 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.
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 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.
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”
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
i had a botched job yesterday at a different salon, i contacted the shop via yelp late last night and david was able to get me an appt right when they opened the next day. he informed me just how bad the other place did and gave me a flat rate on how much a full set and design would be. he was meticulous with his work and everything came out wayyyy better than i could of
imagined. the shop is beautiful and covid precautioned! will be coming back definitely.
Absolutely 5/5. The salon in Glendora is big, pretty, and clean. There is plenty of space between stations to be COVID safe and shields between each station. The staff is extremely friendly and attentive.
David is so detail oriented. My acrylic and gel nails have literally never looked so perfect and even.
Could not have had a better experience. I’m picky about nail salons as I feel I always leave disappointed some way or another. Not here. This is definitely my go to place. I highly recommend Luminous Nails!
My new nail salon! David is just amazing! So fast but so precise and really knows what he’s doing! I will be telling my family and friends all about this place and will be back!!! Thank you so much David!!!
David did an excellent job with my nails this is my first time coming here to get my nails done, prior to him I would never get the design that I wanted at other nail salons. They would always complain about how long it would take or just didn’t know how to do it. Nevertheless I am so happy that I found David
David is amazing!!! He’s so nice and a nail genius! I could never get the shape I like but he did a great job! I’m so glad I found this place!
I was looking for a nail shop that delivered unique nail creativity, art, and most important excellent customer service. To my surprise I found Luminous Nails and a wonderful acrylic nail technician/ artist named David. He is so passionate about what he does you will truly be amazed with his artistic ability. Just make sure you bring David a picture of how you want your nails and he will do his magic. Unfortunately I broke one of my nails and called him the next day. David responded “No problem, I will take care of you.” Long story short upon arrival he fixed my broken nail and in addition polished my other nails as well! David was so pleasant and truly made me feel like a valued customer. You have earned my business forever as well as referrals to others. Keep up your wonderful attitude and perfect abilities. Thank you for the royal treatment!
