Read our FAQs

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 our salon you can choose to have the nail bed clear with any colour tip

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.

Why should i use cuticle oil?

Cuticle oil is used to moisturize the cuticle, skin and nail area. It can protect the cuticle and nail against damage and improve the health and appearance of the cuticles and nails.
Nail plates can get very dehydrated easily, but cuticle oil application is such an easy way to avoid this, leaving beautiful nails! Cuticle oil should not be used as a first-line of defence against dryness, but rather to fix extremely dry, cracked nails. It’s usually of natural, rapidly absorbing vegetable oils; cuticle oil can also contains vitamins

Amazing attention to detail, Lily made my nails flawless. I’ll never go anywhere else. She stayed open almost an hour late to make sure my set was perfect.

I can’t say enough positive things about the staff at this nail salon. A group of 12 of us were in town for a long weekend and 6 of us decided that pedicures sounded like a nice way to start our day. They have a total of 6 pedicure stations so we had the whole place to ourselves. 3 in our group were guys and were having their very first pedicures. The techs made them feel comfortable and pampered.

I just got here and looking for a good nail salons. I went to a different one but didn’t really satisfied me and didn’t get what I really wanted. But when I went Nails Tek, I was really surprised! Very neat and clean place, quiet and very relaxing. The owner did my nails and I am very happy with the results! She did what I wanted and actually clean my cuticles!
I will highly recommend Nails Tek!

This is HANDS DOWN the best place in TC. I had an unfortunate mishap before I started going to Nails tek (ripped a fingernail completely off) and they worked with me for MONTHS until we could fix it. They’re friendly, they all do amazing work and they don’t overcharge. It only took one experience here for me to say I would never go anywhere else!!! Highly recommend going here

As a regular customer at Nails Tek, I can’t say enough how great the staff and services are! There are a variety of polishes to choose from and many services to accommodate everyone’s needs. I even had my bridal party come to get their nails done before my wedding and Nails Tek was so great and provided a fun environment and beautiful nails for all of us! Highly recommended!
