How is gel polish or Shellac polish removed?

This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your Nails By Lina Technician will then use tools to remove the last of the polish and neaten up your nails ready to go!
How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Nails By Lina, 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.
What is a French manicure?

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’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.
I switched to Nails by Lina after so many disappointing experiences at the Tyrone Mall nail places and others. Every nail job has been excellent here, and the people have been super attentive. The whole salon just got a redesign and expansion, so that’s nice, too. Everyone has done an expert job, compared to other places where you can’t be sure what you’re going to get. The waxing ladies are always careful and give me the best brows. The pedicures are great. I don’t feel like an object in an assembly line here. I always know it’s going to be great when I go here.
My sister Kristen brought me in today and I’m very picky about my nails and my pedicures I wait tables I’m on my feet all day and my hands are the first thing people see . I was so impressed by how well they did my nails and toes and managed to get me out in an hour so I could make it to work on time without feeling rushed . I will most def be telling all my friends and family about this place . Not to mention how clean it was and upscale and my cocktail def was amazing 🙂 they did a great job on my natural nails
I LOVE this place! I’ve lived all over the country and this is by far my favorite salon. I always get a mani, pedi, eyebrows, and eyelashes. Not only do I receive 5-star results but the services is unbeatable – they are efficient without compromising quality. I always spend my afternoon laughing along with the team here. I leave feeling happy and with beautiful nails and eyebrows! Highly recommend.
Solid nail place with reasonable prices. The usual aggressive upselling “Pink and white, right?” not once but TWICE (groan) but as long as you hold your ground, you’ll get what you want. My only other complaint is that I came away from my eyebrow wax a bit sparse, but hey, they’ll grow back. I guess I need to remind them to keep them a bit fuller. I’ll be back for a fill-in!
I’ve been coming to Christine for more than 20 years each tag does a wonderful job
Best salon in N. St.Pete. Got nails filled lashes and brow tint. $80. Awesome employees, u get a 🍸 cocktail. I’ll never go anywhere else.

Beautiful renovations, wonderful staff, and artists. quality and affordable.
Tanya is the most professional and engaging person I’ve met in this industry. From the moment I walked in and felt out of place the entire staff made me feel at home. Tanya took what my idea of perfection and ran with it. They took a first time customer and made a returning one within a minute of opening the door.
the service is great.. I love my nails everytime. they do an amazing job.. I absolutely love linas, I wont go anywhere else
