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 Wonder Nailz 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
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.
Can men have manicures or pedicures?
Absolutely. We’re a unisex brand and all treatments are available to you regardless of gender. We’ve noticed that most of our male clients book in for a classical manicure or classical pedicure without paint
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”.

Moon Is My Girl!! I started coming here about 2 months ago. Moon fixed a botched stiletto and coffin set beautifully and ive been in love with how she sculpts my nails. Shes my permanent nail tech.
I made an appointment for 3pm got there at 2:30. I got taken care early, let me say that i felt welcomed and the customer service was great. My nail tech was friendly, she explained the process of gel dip powder vs acrylic gel. I will be coming back
First time and I LOVED every minute! We popped in on a Friday evening. It was a nice atmosphere, everyone was friendly, customers and employees. The Pandora station was jamming!!! I LOVE my nails, thank you Moon!! I’m definitely going back soon!!

Have been coming here for years. Vivian is wonderful on your nails always coming up with something new and different. Linda makes my feet feel great. Nice staff clean shop and I’m happy to support my neighborhood nail shop.
I have been trying to find a nail shop I likE since I moved to th be DMV. I absolutely love this place. It’s clean, modern, AMAZING color to select from. The staff is respectful and professional. Lillian was my tech and she is awesome. Definitely recommend. Great prices too.
They always do a great job with my nails. During covid they have really stepped it up and only take appointments over the phone so no waiting. They take your temperature, have you wash your hands upon arrival, and have hand sanitizer readily available. Everything is spaced out and everyone is masked. The nail techs are always nice and friendly. Always an enjoyable experience for me.
I am new to this area , so I was a lil hesitant to try a new nail salon . To my surprise I am very pleased with the services and talent in this nail salon. Moon is the nail tech I went to the first visit I had . So with that being said when it was time for my fill in and pedicure, I went back to Moon. Wonder Nailz you all are awesome.
