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 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
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.
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 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
I would go again if I was in the area. Just call and make an appointment. They did a great job with all three of us and I love my nails design!!
My nail lady was so good she shaped my nails till they were perfection!
Quite worth for 2 gel manicure sessions. Staff were quite nice, not pushy on selling packages. Service was great.
Called day of for an appointment and they fit me in! Everyone was friendly and accommodating. Will be back!
I’ve only been to the S.E. Military location, and I have only been here twice. But my experience thus far has been very positive. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They are also very informative and consistent. This location has been doing a good job complying with COVID-19 safety requirements. I have witnessed the entire staff wear face masks and gloves, they serve drinks with disposable straws, if they drop equipment on the floor they replace it immediately, and they space all parties out by at least one chair, which is more than 6ft. Of course if your party is together then they seat you accordingly. I have yet to wait to be seen, but its always best to make an appointment. The inside of the building and the restrooms are beautifully decorated and clean (South East side residents: please keep it that way). The technicians are all very experienced and take their time to ensure you are satisfied with their work. I really would like to give this location 5 full stars, for now I will give it 4.5 stars. The only thing that prevents me from giving 5 full stars is I have not witnessed the staff cleaning the chairs with disinfectant/cleaner between clients. During a pandemic, I would expect that to be an extra safety measure they would take. Other than that, I will definitely be returning and look forward to future visits.
We love Rio nails. The staff is very kind and do a wonderful job. Very personable and always remember my name. Have been going there for a year and a half now, and can’t find myself going anywhere else. The deluxe pedicure is amazing. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a nail salon 🙂
I had an amazing experience here
First time going by. As soon as you enter you are greeted. They broke down prices and services. I ended up getting a classic pedicure with shellac, which Tam recommended a great color. She was efficient and very friendly. I also got a full set done by Kevin. He took every note of what I wanted and made sure I received what I asked for. Highly recommend this place.
