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 Villa Nail Spa. This involves gentle hand filing, an acetone soak for a few minutes. Your Villa Nail Spa 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 Villa Nail Spa, 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.
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.
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!
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 Villa Nail 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 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 Villa Nail Spa you can choose to have the nail bed clear with any colour tip
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
Great experience. Took my 7 year old niece too and she loved it!
Absolutely LOVE Villa. They always treat me like a princess.. Very friendly and do a great job!
I have been going to this spa for over a year. I love this place, they always take good care of my nails and toe nails. One of my favorite techs is Hannah, she was so nice to talk to and did a great job in my nails. I would recommend this place to anyone.
When I walked in they were super friendly and asked what services I wanted and what I would like to drink. There was no wait and I was seated right away. Jimmy did my nails and was amazing. He was very careful about getting my existing dip off without it hurting and was very precise when doing my manicure. I will definitely be going back.
Daughter and I went and enjoyed the experience. We both had mani/pedi’s and my wine cup was refilled as needed!
Love this place! Always good service and great quality!
As soon as I walked in they were all very welcoming, and it was very sanitary in the entire place .👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 found my new go to salon and person to 💗💗💗💗
The shop is really nice but the technicians are deal makers or breakers for me. Love Nail Tech Tracy! She really pays attention to detail and makes every effort to ensure the customers comfort and satisfaction!
I never do reviews like this, but I have to say this has been one of my best salon experience so far. I have been here twice and both times they have been so accommodating and truly do a good job on my nails. Their service is great and they’re wonderful people as well so I highly recommend that you go get your nails done by all of these wonderful people at this salon.
I absolutely LOVE Villa Nail Spa. They always honor my appointments and they do a great job on my nails. They also do great pedicures. If you like dip nails, they have alot of color choices just wish there were more clear glitter choices or silver glitter choices. There is one dip that the glitter looks like little crystals and I wish they had that color. Otherwise, this place is very clean and sanitary. They are all sweet people and I always enjoy “nail day.”
