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!
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 Soak 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
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
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.
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”.
Great place o receive relaxing nail services.
Staff is very friendly.
Been to a lot of places and have to say this has topped my list. Great experience, delicious cocktail, wonderful staff and good services.
Very nice place the girls we fast and so sweet!! Found my nail home!!!
Came here for the first time with my boyfriend, we both got pedi which felt pretty nice. The ladies are super sweet and gentle. They are very attentive and do fast job. No complaints one bit. One of the prettiest facilities I’ve been in.
Great place to get yourself pampered and relaxed. People here are very talented and take time making sure your nails look perfect. Price is affordable and the place is super clean. Highly recommended!
I came in here the other day to get my eye brows done. They were incredibly busy and I thought I would have to wait a while, after standing around for about a minute a man (i’m assuming Tommy, that everyone talks about) came and took me to the back.
He did my eye brows himself, and I must say, he blew me away with how good he did them! Honestly, best experience of my life, and they were so nice. They also did the waxing differently than all the other places i’ve been before; I believe they put the wax on some kind of paper or foam and did it that way… it was perfectly different and I hope to find something like that in New Jersey.
The place is also very clean and seems to be organized. I think the price for the brow was a little expensive at $10, but I’d still return next time I’m back home.
Love these ladies at Soak Nails. They always make me feel so welcome and comfortable every time I go in. They do a great job each and every time. I would recommend them to anyone!
I use to go to this salon back early last year. I returned today for a pedicure right when they opened. John was friendly and did a good job. 2 ladies said hi and remembered me from a year ago. They asked how I was doing. That made me feel appreciated as a customer. Place is always clean and inviting.
I love this place! They do a fantastic job! Will definitely be coming back soon!
They are great and they do a wonderful job.
