How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure, 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.
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!
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 Sky Nails 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’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
I can not say enough good things about this place!!! Clean, quiet, inviting, calm, professional. Tom gave me artificial tips with gel finish (I think? Sorry if my wording is wrong!) & it was hands down the most gentle, but thorough manicure of my life!!! I’m not at all sensitive, I have a high pain tolerance, but if you want someone who is going to listen to what you want, pay attention to the tiny details & not beat up your nails/cuticles, this is the place to go!!! I will happily pay $50 for this type of service, I will absolutely be returning in the future!
Very professional & friendly service—I want to make sure that there is a clean & warm place for services— I have been extremely satisfied
Mani/Pedi? This is the spot! Always friendly! * heads up they don’t take Amex but all other forms of payment.
This is one of the best Gel Manicures I have gotten in a long time. The gentlemen played close attention to detail and took his time making everything even and smooth. Highly recommend. Also I love that they use OPI. Great price and excellent service!
They were fast & they did a good job when it came to my manicure & pedicure.
I love this gem right as you enter AH. The techs are knowledgable, and gentle. They take awesome care of their customers!!
This place is amazing!!! I highly recommend it. Their pedicures are incredible. I can’t wait to go back! …
Sky nails is simply the best. Terrific staff. Fantastic service. Immaculately clean. The entire atmosphere is soothing—lovely music, no blaring TV (thankfully no TV at all!!!), no loudness about the salon. It’s set off by a blue sky ceiling with fluffy white clouds. The owner, Tom, is a gem of a person. Expert and thoughtful in every detail, besides being warm, friendly (I’ve been a loyal customer for eight years), and intelligent. I love Sky Nails! Barbara Ras.
Very inviting and calm. I came in for a pedicure and a powder set. The two technicians I had did a very good job. I had Alvin doing my powder set and Amanda doing my pedicure. They both took their time and did a very good job. I was even offered a drink. I would definitely recommend coming here for good service.
The quality and attention to detail here by everyone is so consistent. I’ve been getting my nails done here for 3years.
