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
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
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
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 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
What's the difference between tips and sculpture?
Plastic tips are placed on your natural nails and cut and filed to your desired length and shape before applying acrylic or gel.
Nail Sculptures differ on the other hand. Nail forms are placed at the tip of your nails and product is applied according to the desired length. While the product is drying, the nails will be pinched on the sides to give it more of a natural look. After the product has completely dried the nail form will be removed leaving you with a beautiful and natural nail shape. This system leaves you with a more durable set of nails compared to the tip system. However, this does take slightly longer and costs a few pounds more.
Can men have manicures or pedicures?
Absolutely. We’re a unisex brand and all treatments are available to you regardless of gender. We’ve noticed that most of our male clients book in for a classical manicure or classical pedicure without paint

Anything! Cam is my nail tech and also takes care of my eyebrows and toes! She’s amazing.
I loved everything about coming here. My nail technicians were phenomenal and super friendly! It’s not too often you walk into a nail salon and leave happy!!!! The prices were right on par with surrounding nail salons if anything slightly less expensive. Thanks Mimi and Chu.
Brian totally killed this set. I was so nervous to find a new salon and artist, and he’s completely sold me on this salon and on himself! I’m Normally a very picky person but he totally nailed it, and I’m in love with my new set and I can’t wait to return!
Today was my second time at this salon. Both times I didn’t have an appointment but they were able to get me in within 15 minutes.
Tom did a great job with the gel dip. His technique keeps the gel really thin and natural looking at the cuticle.
This is the BEST nail salon in all of Colorado. I will literally never go anywhere else. I moved farther away and I will still drive over 30 minutes just to get my nails done by Nailcessity. I don’t even feel the need to go to one specific person because they are all very talented. 10/10 highly recommended
Talk about a challenge for my nail dude… Not only do I not have any nails from anxiety biting, I also have crooked fingers from boxing and a tremor. When I say these are the best I’ve ever had. I mean ever. I’ve had my “no nail” turned into nail for two decades now and they’ve never looked real. I get it, they made magic in the first place to turn stubby nubs into nails so I appreciate their work. But NAILcessity nailed it. Perfect. 10/10 (every finger perfectly done).
I’ve been trying to find my go-to nail salon in CO for YEARS. And I’m so glad I gave this place a try. Vinny PERFECTED my nails. I just got a simple color but it’s the attention to detail he put towards each nail itself. A few days later I accidentally slammed my finger in a door and ripped one of my nails off but went back in and they fixed it up for me no problem! I highly recommend giving this place a try, very clean & relaxing environment, & everyone there seems to be super friendly.
They really pampered me. They were very attentive and kind. During these times I’m so grateful for a place like this. I just wanted ny nails done for my birthday and they definitely accommodated me.
I always go here. Sometimes they are super crowded but that’s just because they are the best at what they do. I don’t mind having a little bit of a wait to get my nails done because they always get them perfect.
