How long does normal polish take to dry?
When you have a classical manicure at Zela Nails, 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 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
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.
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.
Been going here for the past 10 years. As anywhere, some technicians are better than others. I have a few favorites. Clean and overall friendly.
Great service here. I had a last minute appt with Anh for lash extension and she was able to book me in. She did a very good job on my lashes and it was very time consuming. I ended up having enough time to get gel manicure as well. Love her! 5 stars
This is my 3rd or 4th time coming here and everytime has been amazing. I always get acrylic nails with gel polish for my hands (since my natural nails barely extend past my finger) and they are always beautiful and last 3-5 weeks usually until I take them off manually since they’ve never broken off on their own.
This was also my first time getting a pedicure. I got the $25 package from nails tech Loann and it was sooo relaxing. I also upgraded to gel nail polish for my French tip to ensure they last. I’m super happy with them.
I can’t remember the name of the nail tech that did my hands but it was a very nice and professional gentleman. Definitely recommend him, and if I could get his name that would be wonderful. Overall my hands and toes were $85 plus tip. Definitely worth it.
The staff is great,they really make you feel welcomes! They have great prices and their work is awesome! I really recommend this business!!
It was my first time visiting after I’ve moved to Elk Grove. The shop was clean and everyone was very helpful and kind. Tami did a great job with gel manicure on my super short nails. I will definitely visit again for pedi as well.
Every employee in there it’s very respectable and always says hello, with the great welcome and please sign in
