What are cuticles? And which package will include cuticle work?
Cuticles are the small overgrowth of dead skin at the bottom of your nail plate. They join the living tissue to your nail, and protect you from any contaminants getting under your skin.
However, overgrown cuticles are no good! Cuticles should be kept pushed back and tidy to keep your nails looking healthy- short, pushed back cuticles also help you get neat, long lasting polish application and help your nails look longer and more elegant. With standard polish, manicures and pedicures, we advise booking a full manicure and pedicure as oppose to our express treatments. With gel polish, the shellac manicure treatment will do the trick!
How long does standard polish last for?
Standard nail polish usually lasts up to 5 days and is a great choice for temporary or short one off occasions. If that’s what you’re looking for then we recommend booking a classical manicure. It does take a fair few minutes to dry fully to avoid smudges on your manicure.
If that’s too short of period for you then we recommend booking a shellac (gel) manicure, which is designed to last up to two weeks!
How long does a gel polish/ Shellac manicure last for?
With cuticle work and full nail preparation, a gel or shellac manicure should last about 2 weeks with proper application and aftercare. At Trieu Nails London we offer an express version of a gel manicure, but if you want that complete 2 week guarantee then we advise going for the full gel (shellac) 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
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.

Beautiful interior. You can tell the owner is really proud of what she has created. She was so kind and helpful. Got the lavender pedicure which was amazing and relaxing and the dip manicure.
Quite worth for 2 gel manicure sessions. Staff were quite nice, not pushy on selling packages. Service was great.

Chris was excellent. He took his time and did an excellent job on my nails!
Vicki is amazing and I would highly recommend her. 100% will be going back to her when I need a fill.
Very nice and elegant. A little pricey, but definitely worth it.
I had a great experience here yesterday getting a full acrylic set with gel polish. The salon is beautiful, very clean and new and the staff was friendly. They have a good selection of polish and dip colors. Melissa did my nails and she did a fabulous job, I am pretty sensitive and she was gentle with the file and buffer. I will definitely be back.
I love coming to this salon! My friend and I have now gone 3 times. It is very clean and well kept. Everyone has been extremely nice. I have had Kevin as my nail tech 2 times now and he has done a stellar job! He takes his time on the cuticles making sure they are perfect. When squaring/rounding the edges of my nails, he always makes sure that all nails look symmetrical. I will be requesting him for future services! Thanks guys!
