How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at MK Nails & Spa, 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.
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 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. At MK Nails & Spa 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
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.
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
Always great work they take their time and make sure you taken care of very professional place and clean atmosphere

Anna is the best! She did my nails & my matron of honor nails for my wedding, absoulety beautiful! It was my first time going here, I am now a permanent customer!
The only place I go. I get my lashes , brows, and lip wax along with my nails done. They treat you like family and they know your style. I love this place!!!
I looked up nail salons near me and found an article listing this one in the top 3. Prices have gone up a little, but it was worth every penny. They weren’t busy midday on a Monday, which is to be expected, and was a nice change. I had a basic mani/pedi, since I was scheduled for surgery the next day. Having moved a couple weeks ago, my hands were a mess, and my feet were worse because I hadn’t been able to reach them myself due to pain for months. They made me feel and look so good by the time I was finished, even if I couldn’t have polish this time. The whole family was sweet and friendly. I will definitely be back.
Just Got my nails and toes done for 90$
Hombre nails & regular gel pedi love them!! Got there at 5pm left around 8pm But totally worth it and the people who work there are very friendly! Will be back for sure

I love this place, they always take their time. But they are also always packed lol. It’s best to get there early when they are open.

Today was my 3rd visit here, and have had a different technician each time. No complaints. I am very pleased with their service.
First time here yesterday and let me say I am beyond impressed. I’m am not sure of the mans name who did my nails, his booth is right by the door but he did an amazing job. He took his time and made sure I was completely happy when I left. I also love that they have so many colors to choose from. The wall from the front of the salon to the back is full with polish. I should never get tired of picking a color here. Thank you so much!!!!
Great long lasting gel manicure pedicure & nail extension. & Great service
I have used this nail salon for 4 years now, after trying others I always go back to them! They are perfectionists with their nails and make sure you walk out happy! They only do walk-ins but I have never waited more than an hour, when they have rush they call for help since is a family owned salon! I went to get pedicures every couple of weeks during my pregnancy and they were extremely kind making sure I was comfortable! Now I have taken my baby girl 3 times and they are super accomodating and understanding when I have to take of my baby in middle of my manicure, they switch me to my pedicure while I breastfeed my baby! I will never change nail salon while I live here!
