Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long will a basic manicure or pedicure last?
A basic manicure or pedicure will last one to two weeks, depending on your lifestyle and the type of service you've had.
If, for example, you work in the garden without gloves, your manicure probably won't last long.
Artificial nail services, such as acrylics, tips, wraps and gels maintain their fresh appearance much longer as they are more durable.
Q: What is the difference between gel nails and acrylic nails?
Gels and acrylics nails are similar because both can be used to extend the length of the nails
and make them stronger and beautiful. One advantage of gels nails is that they are odorless like acrylic.
Gels can also be applied over the natural nail or over artificial nail tips.
Q: What is a "Pink and White" nail service?
"Pink and White" refers to the use of two colors of acrylic applied to the nails to produce
more permanent and natural-looking "French" manicure look. The tips of the nails are sculpted using white acrylic,
and the base of the nail is then overlaid with warm or cool pink, depending on skin tone.
Q: How often are artificial nail need to be maintained?
Every two weeks your nail technician will fill in the area near the cuticle between
where the natural nail has grown and where the artificial nail or tip is attached.
This "fill" includes smoothing, re-sanitising and re-applying the acrylic where it has naturally grown out.
Q: How long will it take for my nails to return to normal after removing my acrylics?
If your natural nails were filed properly in the beginning, and if you've been
maintaining your artificial nails with regular visits to the salon, your nails will be in good condition
after the acrylic nail is removed. Be sure to use some strengthener treatment for your natural nails,
condition your cuticles with specialized Oil and have regular manicures to maintain healthy growth.
Q: Why doesn't my polish stay on?
There can be many reasons. Some polish is just of poor quality and doesn't last.
Also, oils on the nail will cause the polish to peel so make sure the nails are clean and dry before application.
Always rinse your hands thoroughly after using polish remover. Hand lotion, cuticle creams and some sunscreen lotions may also be the culprit.
