Nails Manicure

There are different types of nail services that you can avail. It may vary depending on your needs and budget.

Express Manicure & Pedicure – the express nail service experience may be short and sweet but the express treatment begins with a calming soak and continues with the maintenance of cuticle. We then shape up your nails, buff it and lastly flawlessly polish them.

Gelish Manicure & Pedicure – it uses LED and UV light wavelengths to each layer to enhance your nail colour’s durability and longevity while we keep your natural nails healthy and protected at the same time.

Classic Manicure & Pedicure – this is the traditional way of doing your nails. The steps include cutting and shaping the nails, and then trimming the cuticle. A nail polish will be applied using the colour of your choice. A cuticle oil may be applied as well.

Classic Gel Extension – we add length to your nails like a press-on using a gel that is the same as the gel polish. It is long-lasting and durable too.

Acrylic Extension – we use a plastic plate that’s lightweight just like the shape of your nail and glue it on top of your nail to add more length.

Overlay – the process here does not extend the length of your nails. A hard-wearing and strong gel or acrylic is applied directly to your natural nails and then shaped to give it a neat and attractive look.

Nail art – it involves decorating, painting, elaborating and improving the nails. This will make your nails look more stylish and beautiful too. This is done right after manicure or pedicure process. There are different tools that professionals use such as nail art stickers, rhinestones, dotting tools, loose or confetti glitter, stamping kit and more.

What Clients Says About Our Nail Art

“My favourite place to get my nails done after so trying so many places cheap, affordable, many colours to choose from, excellent service with such friendly staff. Had about almost all of their staff do my nails before and they are equally as good, never had a problem and they always pay attention to detail, no hard selling of packages which is the best part and even though they don’t have massage chairs etc like normal nail salons, the environment and simplicity of it makes me feel super chill and relaxed. $30 for a express mani or pedi and $28 for a full manicure in town area? Cant beat that!”

• Refrain from using your nail as a tool to open cans, etc.
• Refrain from biting your nail or removing the cuticle.
• Toe nail needs to be trimmed regularly.
• Thick and difficult to trim nail may be soaked in warm water with salt for 5 to 10 minutes. Mix one tsp. of salt for every pint of water.
• Do not dig out ingrown toe nail most especially if they are sore and infected.
• Choose to wear shoes that fit properly to avoid damaging your nail.
• If you are in public showers and pool, wear flip flops at all times to protect your nail.

What is the difference between Express and Classic Manicure?

Express manicure is purely just buff, file and coating it with one colour. Express nail service is cheaper and the process is like doing it at home, but you’re just paying a professional to do the express nail service for you. Express nail service takes about half an hour for you to be done.

Classic Manicure involves soaking and massaging, and the process is sort of the same with express manicure. The nail are cut and shaped; the cuticles are trimmed. A nail polish is applied after. It may take about an hour or more for the whole process as compared to express nail service

If you prefer to have it done quickly, you can choose express manicure. However, if you want to take time and relax for a bit more, then you can choose classic manicure.
