NOTHING IMPROVES YOUR MOOD LIKE A MANICURE

I believe your nails are a way to express yourself, have some fun, and brighten up the dull moments in your day. Nothing makes the time fly while peeling potatoes like looking at your beautifully manicured hands do it. The most mundane tasks almost become a pleasure.

I trained with Monaco Nail Academy as they have a strong focus on nail health and nail science so I can offer you a tailored, high-end manicures and nail services without compromising the health of your nails. I am a fully qualified manicurist specialising in gel polish manicures and pedicures. I am also qualified to perform IBX treatments. I am currently working through extension courses and on my way to becoming a fully qualified nail tech. I am choosing to master each technique before working on a new one.

My aim is to help you grow strong, healthy natural nails, wether that is a working length, with an overlay for strength or extending to achieve a perfect length for a special event. Together we will work out what is best for your nails, and your lifestyle.

GEL POLISH MANICURE

A gel polish manicure gives you a chip free manicure for 2+ weeks. As it is cured under UV light you will leave with a dry and functional manicure. No waiting for it to dry, and no chance of it smudging! Although some clients can get up to 6 weeks wear out of their manicure, the polish wasn’t designed to stay on the nail this long, and I advise to have it removed after 3 weeks. As picking it off can cause damage to your natural nail please book in for a removal or pick up a gel polish removal kit at your appointment.

A gel polish manicure consists of removal of previous application (if necessary), prepping the natural nail by shaping it, tidying up the cuticles, applying a single colour gel polish of your choice and an application of cuticle oil and hand cream to hydrate and nourish your hands.

STRUCTURED MANICURE

STRUCTURED MANICURE

A structured manicure is similar to a gel polish manicure but uses BIAB or builder in a bottle to create structure and strength to give longer wear and less breakage. This is especially important to maintain long natural nails without splitting or breaking. A structured manicure is a natural nail overlay although it can be used to repair nails too. I use both Luminary and Ugly Duckling depending on the best fit for your nails, lifestyle and aesthetic. After the first appointment your structured manicure can be infilled and rebalanced instead of soaked off at each appointment making it a great choice for those who have issues soaking their nails in acetone. There is a choice to leave the Builder Gel as its chosen colour, or add on a gel polish colour or nail art. Simple nail art can be added directly over the builder gel.

PEDICURES

I’ve always felt that a pedicure should be a luxurious, pampering experience, so all pedicure services include a foot scrub. Pedicures include a shape and tidy of the toenail, and are finished with a gel polish colour of your choice. Gel polish is hard wearing and most clients find they get 4+ weeks from a pedicure service, generally every second manicure will require a pedicure service if you’re a mani-pedi person. I perform a dry pedicure as it is more hygienic, and although there is no soak there is still all of the pampering. I do not perform callus/corn removal or shaving within my pedicures.

I do not remove SNS, dip manicures or extensions applied by other techs.
I do not infill another techs work.
I cannot work on any nails with open wounds or showing signs of inflammation, pus, fungus, bacteria or infection.

AFTERCARE

To get the best out of your service and care for your nails it is important you follow the aftercare.

  • Use cuticle oil daily
  • No oil or extended periods in water 12 hours before your service or 24 hours after your service
  • Wear gloves when using chemicals, washing up or gardening
  • Avoid prolonged periods of high heat and/or moisture (sunbeds, spas, saunas) and if you are going to risk it then use cuticle oil liberally 10 minutes before and immediately after
  • Wash hands thoroughly after coming into contact with chlorine, insect repellant or sunscreen
  • Nails are jewels, not tools. Using them to pick at things will cause the edges to chip or lift
  • Don’t pick, bite, nibble or suck your nails (this counts as prolonged exposure to water)
  • Filing your nail can cause it to lift 
  • If your polish/enhancement lifts you need to book in for a removal/repair as water and bacteria can get in and get trapped between the nail and the gel/enhancement causing damage/fungus/infection
  • Do not pick your gel polish/enhancement off. This will take a layer of your nail with it and cause damage. Have your nails removed professionally
