What are the 5 basic Manicure Services?

Invalid slider id. Master Slider ID must be a valid number.

Not sure which is the right type of Manicure 

There are 5 basic Manicure & Pedicure Services. First is Regular Polish which  includes extras like scrubs & massage. Great idea for Kids Parties or the Elderly. For longer lasting Polish try a Gel Polish Mani. Goes on like regular polish using a UV Gel Lamp then dries in 30 seconds. Ideal for first time Mums or Weddings.

Maybe you want to try the new SNS Nail Polish. Where you dip nails in these little coloured pots, then just air dry your nails. Great tips here on nail colours makes your nails look longer or hands look younger

If you have very weak nails or a heavy nail biter. Fake Acrylic tips or overlays might be for you. Giving you longer, stronger nails & cheaper than Gel Nails. But if you want something little more natural & less toxic. Fake Gel Nail tips or overlays are the better option. Both artificial nail services are perfect for special occasions or can help stop nail biting 

1. What’s included in a Basic Regular Manicure & Pedicure?

Filing, cuticles, soaking, foot filing, Massage & Polish. First should be applied a good sticky base coat. Then usually 2 coats of Colour & lastly a quick drying glossy Top Coat.

Unfortunately for some people depending on their lifestyle or job. Regular polish can come off quickly. Here are some great tips for a longer lasting manicure . Otherwise apply a light coat of top coat over nail & tip every few days.

Depending on how long your Mani is it might include a long relaxing Massage.  Or a nourishing mask, like a Collagen Hand Mask. Maybe an Exfoliating Scrub or warm Parrafin Wax treatment 

2. How does a Gel Polish Mani 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.Mobile Nail Service Brisbane

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 then a Gel Mani. Just be aware of possible hygiene problems of dipping your nails in the same pots as others. But some people still swear that Gel Polish is better, so it’s really personal choice

So how they do a SNS Manicure is Filing, Cuticles, Buffing, Base Coat, Coloured Dipping Powder & Top Coat 

Your nails are first painted with a gel based coat. Then dipped in colour pots a few times. Finally a painted with a top coat sealant and just air-dried. It can give a more natural look & feel to your nails.

4. Are Acrylic Fake nails safe?

Acrylic nails are simply fake nails or tips. It’s ideal for weak nails & bad nail biters. Or if you would just love very long nails or beautiful nail art for that special occasion.  Acrylics are thicker and will last longer than Gel Nails 

But long-term use might increase your chances of thinning and weakening your nails. Also you always have to be careful of bacteria or infections

Basic Acrylic Manicure service includes trimming, cuticles, tips glued, Acrylic applied, air-dried & colour. First base primer is painted on. Then tips are glued to your nails. Now the Acrylics is applied like a blob of dough shaped on your nail or tips smoothed out, buffed then air-dried. Lastly regular or gel polish is applied.

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 more natural & glossier look.  Your nails will feel thinner and more like real nails. But they do cost more they Acrylics. That being said Gel Nails don’t last quite as long as Acrylics. 

So how they applied is similar to your basic Gel Polish Manicu

re. Starting with Filing, Cuticles, Buffing. Then a like Acrylics tips are applied first or Gel applied to the bare nails

Then from a little pot like gooey glue the Gel Polish is applied a few times. Smoothed out & cured under the UV Gel Lamp. Then prepared for your Coloured polish of your choice. So which one is for you?

Base Coat why you need it – 3 good reasons

Invalid slider id. Master Slider ID must be a valid number.

Base Coat do you really need it 

I know you probably think why do I have to use one. Or you’re in a hurry and it just takes up more time.  

But if you have both yellow stained fingernails or toenails. Or if you find your manicure starts chipping within a day or two. Or if you suffer with either ridges or weak nails

3 Good Reasons why you need it

  1. Prevents yellow staining. As the base coat leaves a layer of protection between your nail and your colour. Dark colours stain your nails if you don’t use one.
  2. For a longer lasting Manicure. A base coat is not only sticky like, but also helps your polish adhere to your nail plate.  A great one to try is CND Sticky Anchoring Base Coat.
  3. For not only stronger nails but also a smoother finished Manicure. Choose either one with Vitamins for peeling or splitting. Or a Ridge filler like CND RidgeFX.

How to paint your nails correctly

First both file and push cuticles. Then wipe hands with a hot towel. Most importantly alway clean your nails with polish remover. Around the base and sides of the cuticle, the whole nail and the tip. Do each nail for 5 seconds to remove all dirt and oil.

Apply your Base coat thinly always. Try to use 3 or 4 strokes.  Paint either side then in the middle. Dont forget the seal the tip as well

Same again as above with your colour but you don’t need to seal the tip. Lastly your top coat same as above and seal the tip. Find out how to make your home Manicure last longer
