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 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
What is a French manicure?
The standard style of a French manicure is when the fingernails are painted pale pink with a white band at the tip. At La Jolie Nail Spa you can choose to have the nail bed clear with any colour tip
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

I’m new to the area. I’ve been looking for a good nail tech and due to COVID it’s been hard. Found this shop and called to make an appointment. I arrived it was fast and easy and they were able to squeeze in my significant other . They made us feel very welcome and comfortable offering water and and cold drinks. I had Gina do my toes and the owner Alicia doing my nails she offered to do a little design for free. All in all i was very pleased and happy with the service. And will be coming back soon !!
My favorite place going on 10 years plus now for Manis and Pedis in Palo Alto. La Jolie is open again and doing services all fresco. A much appreciated experience for us during these depressing pandemic times, and obviously more work for the wonderful staff to bring out all the tools, hot water bowls for foot soaks, furniture etc. Thank you Sandy, Alicia, owner Ann, and the rest of the staff for always providing excellent and friendly services, and for the extra effort to accommodate your clientele outside.
I came from out of town to fix my nails and I’m very pleased. Kevin took his time and made sure that I was happy with my nails. He removed my acrylics and put on a gel manicure which I thought might be bumpy but because of his patience and attention to detail they came out beautifully. I’m thankful for Kevin and the atmosphere in the salon. Everyone was very hospitable. This place was recommended to me by some Stanford students and I was not disappointed.
Super-friendly service. We arrived early for our appointment, and they were able to take us right away. Everyone (staff and customers) was masked and keeping distance. Reasonable price. My daughter’s nails were lovely.
I absolutely love visiting this salon! All of the techs are very sweet and the customer service is excellent. They have a nice collection of colors and the prices are reasonable. Highly recommended!
