How is gel polish or Shellac polish removed?
Gel polish is very difficult to remove with standard nail polish remover and if you peel it off it can damage your nails so it is always advisable to book in for professional take off at …Nails
This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your (Name Salon) Technician will then use tools to remove the last of the polish and neaten up your nails ready to go!
How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Trieu Nails London, your technician will leave your polish to dry for about 5 minutes before applying a quick-dry spray, which accelerates 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.
Do you use MMA in your acrylic extensions?
Never! Our Acrylic powders are EMA (Ethyl Methacrylate) and (nails salon name) is rigorously inspected by the local authority annually to ensure we uphold this.
Salons that offer acrylic extensions at cheap prices are often using MMA (Methyl Methacrylate) which is used in the dental industry. MMA bonds to your nails too harshly, leading to some really bad damage to your natural nail – as a chemical MMA was never designed to come into contact with skin and nails – it is too hard to be used for acrylic extensions and can tear the nail from the nail bed easily!
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!
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.
I had a great experience! Everyone was friendly and helpful.
Lovely, experience. Nails came out perfect. Staff is very friendly and caring as well!! 10/10 would recommend.
Haven’t had a pedi in YEARS. I had Kathy (I think?) who did my mani, pedi and brows. Spectacular. My new nail place.
The best place I have ever gone in harco for a full set. 10/10 recommend
The owner’s are great at what they do! Husband & wife team. The husband is my nail tech, he is very precise & does an awesome job on my nails. I get several services at Lux & am very pleased! Great place for a day at the nail spa!
I’ve been to Lux multiple times and they are my favorite place to get my nails done. It’s kind of pricey, but great service. I’m never disappointed when I leave, fantastic work!
Pedicure was wonderful. The only reason I did not give 5 star is an employee’s young child’s tantrum was super distracting and it seemed insane that a salon would let a child run around and touch everything yet adults wore masks, used hand sanitizer and wore gloves. My experience otherwise was wonderful!
Amazing staff & GREAT work. Highly highly recommend. Very clean & neat too !
The people at lux nails are phenomenal! The service you get is bar none. Not only do they take walk-ins but they are very warm and welcoming. And you get a massage with every service. I’m not talking just a hand massage, but arm and shoulders too! Bonus! The place is small but very clean and it’s full service–nails, pedi, eye brow wax, the works. Today I got a new set of pink and white, nothing fancy,- but they do more like powder and gel. Both times I’ve gone I was a walk-in and they’ve done exactly what I wanted. Parking is limited in front of the shop but easily accessible from the lot across the street. Loved the entire spa-like experience but without the high prices. In fact today (right before Christmas) they handed out personalized $10 gift certificates to everyone who received services! I’ve been getting my nails done for years and have tried many places and I have Never received anything from any shop I’ve been to. This was a great surprise! Give this place a try. You won’t be disappointed.
This place is very professional. They have a sign-in system that allow you to leave your feedback. Owner is very friendly too
