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!
How long does a gel polish/ Shellac manicure last for?
With cuticle work and full nail preparation, a gel or shellac manicure should last about 2 weeks with proper application and aftercare. We offer an express version of a gel manicure, but if you want that complete 2 week guarantee then we advise going for the full gel (shellac) manicure.
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
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
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.
Pleasantly surprised with cleanliness of this place and pedicure. Covid precautions in place like hands sprayed as soon as you walk in and social distancing. But most importantly, the pedicure was unbelievable. I’ll be back every 2 weeks. Much better experience than the place across the street.
I really like this place! I went here to get a fill on a gel french manicure after a no-bueno visit to another salon (didn’t listen to what I wanted, expensive, paid no attention to my cuticles, sloppy work) and am so glad I did! They were super meticulous and did an excellent job on my nails. The technicians were kind and welcoming. Reasonable prices. The space was well decorated, relaxing, and clean. I will definitely be coming here going forward!
Leo did a fabulous job on my nails, I’m very please,I been looking from shop to shop asking for stiletto nail shape and no one has done it rite till now,the place is very clean and comfy. Ohh and they have all kind of little things you can buy, jewelry, lotion brow pencils,cuticle oil,,just in time for xmas,great stocking stuffers, leo and annie were very nice,,.

This place is absolutely incredible! so nice and peaceful in there, so professional and everyone was super friendly. This was my first time getting a pedicure since I moved to bridgewater in july and I honestly wouldn’t even think of going anywhere else!!!! Best pedicure I have ever had in my life, by far. I wish I could rate it 100 stars!!!
I am ALWAYS happy when I leave this nail spa. Leo and the rest of the team here do a great job. I was very impressed with the cleanliness, and infection control after they reopened. There are an abundance of precautions here but it did not take away from the relaxing environment. I feel safe, relaxed, and taken care of at Luminous Nail & Spa.
Amazing spa pedi and gel mani. Highly recommend. It’s very clean and they take the time to make your experience great. I can’t remember the last time I had an experience like that.
