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
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.
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.
I had an excellent pedicure experience here! Best I’ve found in the area and I’ve been in this area for two years now, going on three in November. The staff was professional , warm, welcoming, and excellent at their craft. They accommodated and were very kind to me and my 2 friends who walked in asking for pedicures, after a long day at work. This place is great! Great staff. Very nice experience overall, 5 stars. Beautiful place. Clean.
I have been in the spa on three separate occasions. Two pedicures and one manicure. I waited to post until I could show how my nails held up. I tried the “dip” coloring for the first time. It’s a little more expensive BUT so worth it. I am very hard on my hands with all of my projects around the house and my nails have held up great even after two weeks. Here are the photos to prove it. There are no chips or cracks at all. I highly recommend Luxury Nail & Spa.
Always a pleasure coming here. Nice and quiet. Neat and organized. They really treat the customer well.
Everyone was friendly and my nails look fab!
Wonderful Customer Service
Such a relaxing atmosphere. The best pedicure I’ve had in quite some time.
Sunny did a great job on my mani/pedi ! Highly recommend him. Love the atmosphere, very calming.
I highly recommend!!! I’m very picky. My nails look very natural. I did a dipped mani. I definitely would come back here again. Clean spa and very relaxing too.
I had a Volcano Organic pedicure (romance scent) and it was totally amazing! Best pedicure I’ve had in the 7 years I’ve been down here. It was not rushed, greast customer service, friendly staff, the products are fabulous and my nails look perfect. Can’t wait to go back!
My daughters and I went in for pedicures. Everyone was so nice and did an awesome job! I got the orange peel pedi. It was the best ever! Everyone was so nice and accommodating! Loved it!
