None of the professional products used contain MMA. All of the products used are safe and will not do any damage to the natural nail if you follow the directions of the nail technician. Made with the fusion of 2 elements namely monomer and polymer, acrylic nails add instant length, are durable, they can be worn for a long time, and extends the life of your polish. Especially if you are extra careful with your hands. Tips are glued over the natural nails, the acrylic solution is applied, shaped, and then painted. Acrylic nails usually last 2-3 weeks.
Maintenance – Fill-ins are needed as new nail growth begins to show. We thoroughly inspect the nail and acrylic before applying a fill. Damage or lifting can be repaired when needed
Pedicure came from the Latin word pedis meaning feet and cura meaning care. Thus pedicure means the care of the feet. Toenails are filed and cuticles are pushed back and A scrub is applied next which continues to remove dead skin cells by bumping them off the surface and it also is used to break down calluses on the bottom of your feet. This process is exfoliation. A pumice stone or foot file is used at this time in conjunction with the scrub in order to remove or at least smooth calluses. Then cream and oil will be applied to massage your feet and your legs up to but not past your knees. One every week to two weeks is recommended.
Manicure came from the Latin word Manus meaning hands and, again cura, meaning care. So manicure is the care of the hands. In a manicure your fingernails are trimmed (if desired), soaked in a finger bowl with warm soapy water, filed, and ridges are buffed off the surface of the nail. The cuticles are softened, pushed back, and possibly removed. Dirt is cleaned out from under the free edge (the part that hangs over and extends beyond your fingers) of your nails and brushed with a nail brush. As is the surface of your nails. A hand massage is performed with lotion and in some cases an arm massage too. Then fingernails are painted with a base coat, two coats of desired color, and a top coat. That's a basic manicure.
UV Gel nails are a type of synthetic nail that allows nails to appear longer and stronger. UV Gel nails are made of a special odorless gel applied to the natural nail and then dried with an ultraviolet light -- thus the name UV Gel. Once the UV process is complete, the nails can be painted and decorated to fit your taste and preference.
After 2/3weeks, as new nails grow, they need to be filled, which is the application of product between your nail cuticle and the grow-out portion of your artificial nail. This service also includes repairing of any cracks, breakage or lifting of the nail product, and fresh application of polish.
Shellac is the brand name for a new, patent pending nail product created by Creative Nail Design. It is a hybrid, meaning half nail polish, half gel. The product is thin and strong enough to be applied similarly to nail polish, but it is cured in a way that gives it great flexibility and durability. It also has the incredible shine associated only with gel nails.
Who is Shellac best suited for? Shellac is for people who want to maintain natural nails. The formulation looks as good from day 1 to day 14, but does not appear to damage nail beds.
Follow the After Care instructions that will be given to you by your aesthetician during your appointment.
