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!
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
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’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”.

Henry got me in fast and did amazing on my nails! He also took his time and was very polite. If you want a great experience I would definitely recommend!
Awesome people that work there. Very skilled. I am pleased with my nails every time I get them done here.
Writing this review late but wanted to share a picture anyway. My first time i went for acrylic gel removal and gel on my natural nails. Any other place removes acrylics so your natural nails look terrible but the gentleman here kept them flawless. He suggested dip and tried it for the first time and i love it! No chipping, no peeling, so smooth and shiny. This is my new go-to place.
I went and got a acrylic set and pedicure done like 3 weeks ago. My nail tech did a great job and my nails turned out nice. The nail prices seem reasonable to me, $55 for a full set and $40 for the pedicure but the reason im giving it a lower star is because when I went to go get my nails soaked off, the acrylic was sticky which means they used the cheap MMa product to bind the products together and it was hard to take them off and i got damage to my regular nails because of it.
Nhu did a great job! I’ll definitely be back to see her!! I went in because I didn’t feel pretty with my icky nails and she made me feel beautiful
Let me tell you Ty SLAYS the nail game. I’m picky and I always leave so happy!! Pedis are also lovely, they take their time 🖤
I called ahead and was able to be fit in the schedule within 20 mins on a Friday afternoon. I got pedicure and a full acrylic set. It was my first time getting false nails and I was a little nervous! But, I brought in a picture for inspiration and Ty made my dream come true! Definitely will be coming back!
I have been to numerous nail salons. GNO is by far the best. Nhu is amazing. If I show her a design, she can copy it almost exactly! I have always been 100% satisfied when I leave. I would highly recommend GNO Nails!
I could not be happier with my set!
Ty did an absolutely amazing job!!
Let me start with saying, I had just had a vocal surgery and was not able to speak much, I came in with a text and a picture and yet I got exactly what I was hoping for. I literally cannot stop staring at my nails, I have been dissatisfied with other techs at other salons in the past and I can be quite picky, but Ty! Ty knows what he’s doing!!! Can’t wait for next set, I know I’ll be impressed!
Also please note the pic I added is after a week of having them.
I’ve only been here one time, however i used to always go to LA nails which they apparently associate with. i had an appointment with Ty and he did the exact design i showed him and he even was super careful when i mentioned i had a cut on my finger. my nails are perfect!
