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 Shimmer Nails & Spa 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 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 Shimmer Nails & Spa 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
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.
What is a manicure ?
Nails classical manicure consists of a warm hand soak, filing and shaping the free edge of the nails, pushing and clipping (with a cuticle pusher and cuticle nippers) and application of fingernail polish. The more advanced treatments will take longer and vary in treatment methodology and price.
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 came at 6pm on a Monday to come see Tim, he was super sweet and greeted me and every client who walked in. I told him I am very picky with my nails and needed someone with good experience. He sat me down and started talking about the design of my nails. Throughout the whole process he kept confirming with me to see if I liked my nails. I appreciate that a lot because a lot of techs just do whatever they want and they don’t care if the client likes them or not. I enjoyed the service he offered. I will deffff be back again because they look like just like the picture. The services are pretty affordable as well.
Diane is awesome soo professional and she took her time to make sure my feet were taking care of. She was gentle and kind would definitely recommend anyone to come here.
The nail salon a few doors down from them did a horrible job! I went to shimmer nails right after n they offered to fix it!! And i only had to pay for my design! So much better! They did an amazing job! They were so sweet as well! I definitely recommend this place and i will definitely make it my go to nail salon!!!
Amazing and beautiful nails. It’s my second time here and they are so good and friendly. Absolutely recommend.
Love this nail salon! My mom and I go monthly for pedicures, great service! We’ve been going since the store opened.
This is my new spot!! I love them!! Very warming and catering to your needs. Check them out!!
This place and the people are amazing!!! 1st time coming here…I’ll definitely be back! Great Team.
First time here and let me say…. the vibe was very nice. Everyone greets you and try to get you seated quickly. So once you enter, you tell them what you want done and of course you need to wash your hands. I love that because not only we keeping it safe and sanitize, I had to wash my hand anyways because I just ate a burger. Lol. I didn’t catch the nail tech name that did my nails but she was super nice and very caring. She ask me right away if I would like something to drink. A lot of nail places I went to don’t ask til you ask and I love that she went straight to ask me because I was super thirsty. She then proceed to show me how to move my chair up due to being pregnant, I need to be in a comfortable spot.
Drove by and decided to stop in and get my nails done .
I get nexgen nails and am picky on where I go but wanted to find somewhere closer to home . LET ME TELL YOU!!! Eric did an amazing job !! He helped pick out this color and really listened to how picky I am about my nails and demands lol. He talked to me while I was there and was sooooo gentle with me . As a nurse I like natural and short and they are straight and super cute ! He even put snow flakes on them and I can’t get over how much I love them. I most definitely will be back to see him.
Wow. I am so glad I was able to find this nail salon by my house, It is only 6 minutes away from my house! My first time coming, I was greeted and sat down immediately. I did a little research beforehand and noticed Tim got a lot of good reviews so I requested him. He was super nice and asked me if I liked them throughout the whole service. It made me happy that he kept confirming with me because a lot of nail techs don’t LISTEN to the client. My nails came out flawless, I will definitely be back for some more nails. 🙂 If you’re extremely picky with your nails like I am I recommend you ask for either Tim or Bryan, but everyone’s work is awesome here.
