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.
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
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.

Somehow my appointment days got mixed up but they were able to get me in right away! First time going here and I loved the results. Kevin did awesome! Will be going back.
Very clean, great layout and gorgeous new salon. The staff is friendly (especially Trish) and always make sure everything is done right. Good booze selection as well:)
Inside looks great & plenty of chairs to accommodate groups. Have PPE in place to ensure safety.
Staff was very friendly…will return!
I love this place and the service!! Always happy with the results I get!! They are really friendly 😊😊
Took my niece here for girls day out, she’s 10. Wonderful experience. Very friendly and did a wonderful manicure on her and powder nails for me. Will go back here for sure! Prices are reasonable and my nails lasted over 3 weeks!
Check-in was super easy. We were able to get right in and get chairs next to each other. We just got the regular pedicures and they did a wonderful job, it was so relaxing and everyone was very friendly. I would definitely book here again.
Everyone was sooo nice and I had such a pleasant experience! I got the deluxe pedicure with shellac on my toes and i got ombré nails! The shape was EXACTLY what I asked for and I picked my main color for the ombré and said pick what you think is best for the second color and it was amazing. I am definitely sending all my peers here!
I’m happy with this salon the interior is really pretty even though that’s not really important. My nails were done fast and generally well. Only one nail was scuffed but they where very busy so I don’t blame them. I will say the receptionist sucked. She was young and had no clue what to do kept bothering my tech…
Truly a five star experience! My technician was Sophia, and she was wonderful! She was friendly, kind, and we had a very pleasant conversation that never felt forced; it was the perfect balance between talking and quietly relaxing. The atmosphere was welcoming and elegant, and their online appointment system is so convenient. Honestly the best time I have ever had getting my nails done.
My daughter and I have been to Oscar Nail Bar 4 times now and have had an amazing experience each time! Staff is friendly, efficient and our pedicures have been perfect every time. My daughter loves to find pictures of different nail designs online and they are happy to accommodate. Great nail salon, definitely give them your business!
