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. 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 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 our salon 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
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.
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.
Vanessa! That’s all you have to know! I came here after a previous disaster at a Frisco place, a bunch of people recommended this place and they were not kidding! I really recommend this place, she takes so much pride on what she does, she’s attentive, and very sweet. Needless to say i love my nails. Thank you 😊
Ya’ll!!! Listen to me when I say, you NEED to go here!!! Vanessa is my girl! She does amazing every time. She is so meticulous, she takes her time, and makes sure everything is 100% before you leave. She is a true master of her craft. After searching and searching, I have finally found my forever nail home!
I recently moved to Celina from Los Angeles and decided to give Urban Lash and Nail Spa a try. It has topped every nail salon I have ever been to. The staff is so nice and welcoming and Chris gave me a perfect Nexgen nail manicure. After years of trying to find a permanent nail salon I have finally found one!
I grew up in Celina and it is such a treat to have Urban Lash & Nail Spa in our town! They are extremely kind, their nail spa is super clean, their staff are exceptional and not to mention they do an incredible job with all of their services. I have visited at least 10 times and always have the same experiene.
Great, clean, and relaxing spa. We made an appointment for 3 pedicures and couldn’t be happier and there was no skimping on the leg and foot massage. My only regret was forgetting to ask the gentleman’s name who did my pedi to be able to ask for him next time. There was a great selection from a basic pedicure all the way up to an organic jelly pedicure all very reasonably priced. I look forward to returning!
And I am so glad that I did! The best place to get your nails done !The best customer service! Every single one of them in that shop were very nice and welcoming. The place is so clean. Everything is new. Paul did my nails. He listened to what I wanted and did an amazing job. If you live in Celina and surrounding cities you got to go and try to get your nails done there! You will not be disappointed !
Great service and they always help match exactly what I’m looking for.
Super friendly nail technicians! Nice gel manicure. Will be returning!
This place is so pretty! They were fast, attentive, polite, precise, and the complimentary wine is a nice extra. They will definitely have my business on a regular basis. I enjoyed my gel mani and Lavish pedi. Thanks!!
Absolutely in love with the work that Urban Lash & Nails does! Not only are their color options AND design styles amazing, the shaping is perfect as well! I cant wait to go back. HIGHLY recommend!
