A manicure is a finger nail service in which we shape your nails, push back the cuticles, cut the dead skin around your cuticles, clean under the free edges, buff your nails, then massage your hands and arms, and finally apply your favorite color polish to your nails.

Absolutely; and they have to. In fact, it is part of our personal hygience that everyone need to taking good care of they hands and feet, especially men need a regular Manicure and Pedicure to have soft skin and good nail shape.
A traditional French Manicure is a nail style with white polish or paint is applied to the free edge to make it look whiter than normal, and a baby pink, beige or peach polish is applied over the whole nail to give the rest of the nail a healthy look. This style looks elegant on any occasion and matches every color of your outfits. Today, with the “fancy” French Manicure, the free edge can be any color – not just white, and the shape of the color at the free edge can be any shape – not just smile line, like chevrons, reverse chevrons, a row of flowers or other art, etc.
There is a subtle difference about the white color at the free edge. Most people think of the French Manicure as having very white tip where as the American Manicure is more natural looking with softer white tip.
Artificial Nails include Acrylic, Silk, Fiberglass, Linen, Paper, and Gel. Standing out from the crowd is Acrylic due to its strength, durability, and affordable price. Acrylic is the most popular artificial nail now.
The safe and regular nail extension is no more than 1/3 the length of the nail bed. This length is also good for the beginner. You should be very careful if your nail is longer than half of the nail bed; and it’s very dangerous if your nail is longer than the length of your nail bed.
There is absolutely no reason for you to worry about wearing artificial nails. If the salon you are going to knew exactly what to do to prevent such a problems. Especially; Today, many preventive medicines are available to you, which, when used daily, will condition your nails and cuticles, and also prevent you from getting the mould or fungus. Ask our nail technicians about these products.
There are five common nail shapes:
Square: The free edge is straight across. This shape is strong because of its full width at the free edge. This shape may cause injury to the skin because of its sharp corners.
Round: The free edge is round comforting to the fingertip. Male customers usually choose this shape because of their natural round fingertip.
Oval: The free edge is oval. Most professional customers who usually have their hands on display choose this shape. It looks attractive.
Pointed or “Stiletto”: Top of the free edge is narrow and pointed. This shape is suited to thin hands with narrow nail beds; however, it is weak and breaks easily.
Square-Round: This shape is the combination of square shape and round shape. The front edge of the free edge is straight across with the corners rounded off. This shape is strong and suited to those who work with their hands. It looks young and is the most popular nail shape now.

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-sanitizing and re-applying the acrylic where it has naturally grown out.

By doing so, you will protect your natural nails and make sure your real nails are in good condition for the continued application of acrylic nails and to avoid developing fungus.

An American Manicure is an alternative to the traditional French Manicure. It usually consists of a stark white tip (an off-white polish) and a sheer pink or beige on the nail bed.
The French/American Manicure, or any clear, light or white color, will turn yellow if you overexpose your nails to the sun, heat, make up products or tanning bed, especially tanning lotion. We have a special top coat that helps reducing the yellowing of your French/American Manicure.
Silk/Fiberglass Nail is lighter and looks natural; however, it won’t stay very well if you happen to wash your hands a lot. Acrylic Nail is much stronger, and you can do almost any kind of work. A skillful nail technician can make Acrylic Nail also look natural and light. There are two more good things about Acrylic Nail: you pay less money and spend less time at nail salon.
No, they can’t. However, mould and fungus can grow under the artificial nails, which are lifting, cracking or breaking, and even under the natural nails, because of lacking a regular and professional nail care.
There are some good products that can cure nail mould or fungus. You should need the advice from your dermatologist, or your trustworthy nail tech, before buying these products. Our nail techs can recommend you the good products on the market now.
No, you may not. When you glue your lifted nails, you may trap the moisture and dirt under your nails, and fungus may start growing. You need to go to a nail salon to have a proper and professional repair.
You may. But that’s not a good idea, because nail salon is not a safe place for kids due to the hazards of all equipments and chemicals. Should you bring your children along, they must be kept with you the entire time in the salon. However, you cannot expect your nail tech to do a good job while your child is sitting on your lap (or you are talking on the phone).
You absolutely can. Clients tend to stop biting when they have extensions on. It also depends on how bitten and damaged they are. A consultation will define details. However, do not expect your acrylics to last as long as they last on normal nail conditions.
There can be many reasons. Some polish is just of poor quality and doesn’t last. Also, oils on your natural nails 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, make up products, “oil from your face and hairs, a single touch on your face and hairs from one of your hand can make the polish not able to stay on for that hand” and other oil/lotions may also be the culprit.
A basic manicure or pedicure will last about a week and could last longer depending on your lifestyle. If, for example, you work in the garden without gloves, your manicure probably won’t last very long. Artificial nail services, such as acrylics, tips, wraps and gels maintain their fresh appearance much longer as they are more durable.
No pet allowed.
