How is gel polish or Shellac polish removed?
Gel polish is very difficult to remove with standard nail polish remover and if you peel it off it can damage your nails so it is always advisable to book in for professional take off at Plush Nails Studio.
This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your (Name Salon) 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 Plush Nails Studio, 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.
Will acrylic or gel extensions damage my nails?
If you have your extensions professionally applied and professionally maintained and removed by qualified nail technicians, there should only be minimal damage to your nail plate. However, constant acrylic application can make your nail plate weak so we advise a small break in between. Beware of nail technicians who leave your nails with white patches, damage and weakness.
It goes without saying that if you pick at your nails or pull them off yourself, the nail will be badly damaged. Professional technicians like those will use the correct, branded, high quality products to apply and remove your nail extensions.
How do i care for my nails after my manicure?
To keep a manicure lasting to its full potential avoid getting your nails wet for too long (constant soaking in hot baths or not wearing rubber gloves when washing the dishes) and also avoid coming into contact for prolonged periods with chemicals like those in sunscreen, perfumed products and insect repellent.
Get someone else to do the DIY or tough chores that might cause your manicure to lift, and apply cuticle oil morning and night if you can. This will keep your nails super healthy throughout the duration of your manicure and it will help keep the polish intact.
Finally, don’t pick at your manicure under any circumstances. Instead Book in for a Nail repair if one or nails have damaged otherwise treat yourself to another treatment.
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 Plush Nails Studio, 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 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 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’s difference between gel nails and shellac nails?
A gel manicure and a Shellac manicure are essentially the same thing: long-lasting polishes cured under UV lamps. The difference is that “gel nails” or “gel manicure” is the generic term for any nails done under a UV lamp which includes shellac, whilst Shellac itself a brand of gel polish by the company Creative Nail Design (CND). It’s comparable to “Henry Hoover” which was so popular that people often call a vacuum cleaner a “Hoover”.

‘ve been a customer for quite some time and from day one they have always been professional and very attentive. Hannah and all her staff are very detail oriented and so friendly. The prices are great for such fantastic work in a super relaxing atmosphere!
Great place for anyone looking for relaxation. I don’t get any nail work done here but I do get back massages and/or shoulder massages and they are awesome. The hot stones alone are worth it. Definitely know how to pamper me when I come in 🙂
I have been coming here for years and they are always so sweet. I have lately been asking for some random designs and they always say okay and wing it and I’ve been happy every single time. Thank you very much !! 🙂
They saved my life. I cried but my nail recovery was quick and she was very patient with my pain. I had broken two nails, down to my flesh , I mean truly miserable but now my nails are repaired and I won’t go that long again. Thanks Plush, you saved me from my misery.
I’ve only been twice so far but they are so sweet and attentive. I have had the most relaxing experience both times. I’ll definitely be a regular and I highly recommend them.
Did a walk-in for their simple Eva manicure – the technician was very efficient and super gentle on the cuticles. Good prices and friendly staff!
I’ve been to many, and this place gives you the best customer service! They put in the work, remember your color (wow) and give you lots of nicities for free like fruit and flowers in your water (pedicure). HIGHLY recommend!
It’s been extremely hard finding a nail salon in Houston until I found Plush. This is the best salon I’ve been to and I’ve been to many. Hannah is amazing! The ambiance is nice and warm and I’ve felt very welcomed from the first day I went. I highly recommend Plush Nails Studio!
I was in Houston visiting family with my granddaughter that was visiting me from California. We were down in Rice village and saw Plush Nails salon, we went in and was greeted by such nice staff. We had my granddaughter have her nails done, and it was such a wonderful feeling knowing she was getting star treatment. I thought all the ladies in the were so attentive to their customers also. I would definitely recommend any one that lives in Houston to try them out. They also do bridal parties. I just wished I didn’t live so far away, they would be my salon hands down. Almost forgot, Thank you so very much to Shelly who did a wonderful job. Thank you to the staff for such a relaxing time.
