Everything you need to know about Salon & Home Manicures

salon & home manicure services

What are the 5 basic Salon & Home Manicure Services ?

  1. Regular Manicures can allow extra for Mask, Scrubs & Massage. Great idea for the Elderly and Pamper Parties
  2. Gel Polish Manicure goes on like Regular Polish by using a UV lamp & dries straight away. Ideal for first time Mums & Weddings 
  3. SNS Polish is where you dip your nails in Coloured Pots & just air dry your nails. A little thicker then Gel Polish
  4. Acrylic Nails are fake tips or overlay. Great for weak nails or nail biters.
  5. Gel Nails are more natural & less toxic then Acrylic. Ideal for special occasions

What is included in a Regular Polish Manicure?

Start off with trim, shape, cuticles, sometimes a hand soak then polish. Added on treatments could be long relaxing Massage. Or a nourishing mask, like a Collagen Hand Mask. Maybe an Exfoliating Scrub or warm Paraffin Wax treatment,

Unfortunately for some people depending on their lifestyle or job. Regular polish home manicure can come off quickly. Otherwise apply a light coat of top coat over nail tip every few days.

Top Tips for Salon or Home Manicure
  • Don’t soak your fingernails, your mani lasts longer 
  • Oval or round shaped nails can chip less frequently
  • File your nail in one direction
  • Wipe your nail  with polish remover before base coat
  • Using a base coat will stop staining & help your polish last
  • Keep nail polish coats nice & thin 
  • Choosing a neutral colour is less noticeable if it chips
  • Use a top coat nail strengthener
  • Moisturise your hands particularly your cuticles every day 
  • Wear gloves & keep your hands as dry as possible 

How does a Gel Polish Salon Manicure work ?

Filing, Cuticles, Buffing & Polish. This a basic or express Gel Polish  & is applied similar to regular polish. But is cured under a Gel Led Lamp usually taking 30 seconds to dry. So there is no smudging, chipping or fading.

It can go straight on your bare nails. Or straight over your Acrylics or Gel Nails too. Most Gel Polishes have no hash chemicals in them these days.

As Gel Polish can be a bit drying for your nails you should massage your hands & nails everyday. Lasting 2 or 3 weeks you then should remove the polish. Either professionally or you can do it at home it’s quite easy only take 10-15 mins.

Best Tips for Salon Gel Polish
  • Gel Polish removal with cotton pad soaked in pure Acetone.
  • Apply to nail wrapped  tightly with foil for 15 mins gently scrape off
  • Never pick or peel as this can weaken your nails
  • Don’t leave on longer than 3 or 4 weeks as you can stain your nails
  • If having regularly have a break every 3 or 4 months to let nails breath off

3. Is SNS Nail Polish better than Gel ?

SNS which stands for Signature Nail System and Gel Polish are both good options. SNS takes a little longer & lasts a little longer. But does cost a little more than a Gel Mani. Just be aware of possible hygiene with with dipping your nails in the same pots as others. 

A SNS Manicure starts off Filing, Cuticles, Buffing, Base Coat, Coloured Dipping Powder & Top Coat. A gel based coat is applied. Then dipped in colour pots and sealed with a top coat and air-dried. 

4. Are Acrylic Fake nails safe?

Acrylic nails are a  fake nail or extended tip. It’s ideal for weak nails & bad nail biters. Or if you would just long nails for that special occasion. Acrylics are thicker and will last longer than Gel Nails. But long-term use increase your chances of  weakening your nails. Also you always have to be careful of bacteria or infections

Acrylic Manicure includes trimming, cuticles, base primer, tips glued on & or Acrylic applied, buffing, air-dried & colour applied under the led lamp.

5. Gel Nails is it a more natural Fake Nail?

They do have less toxic chemicals in them and don’t have a strong smell like Acrylics. With a lighter feel & more look. But they do cost more than Acrylics but don’t last as long.
