As a first time, or not-in-a-long-time client this is a great starting point. What nail coating is right for you? We are happy to consult with you over the phone, text, or email but hopefully this will narrow down your choices.
A low commitment, low maintenance option for anyone looking to feel polished or pampered. This coating is applied to your natural nail length and removed with zero nail damage. This is a great option for anyone looking for a one time pickup me up or to start a 2 week maintenance routine. Our nail artists will consult with you on lifestyle and natural nail health to determine which strength base coat and top coat will suit you. We do offer semi-hard soak off builder gels as a base layer if your natural nails are weak or damaged. Please add on removal services if coming in with coatings on from other salons. Nail art add ons are also available.
Gel extensions are a great way to get into having medium to extreme length nails without the long-term commitment of acrylic or hard gel. These soft gel extensions come in a variety of lengths and shapes but can also be customized to your desired look. They are designed to last 3+ weeks* and are a perfect way to glam up for an event, wedding, prom, or everyday.
These innovative nail extensions are a lightweight alternative to traditional nail enhancements. They are durable and flexible and do not crack and snap off under stress like other harder nail extension coatings. Gel sets are not filled at your repeat visit. Because they can be easily removed without damage you get a new perfect set at every visit. Switch up your manicure as often as you'd like: changing the shape and length as often as your mood. A full set includes a one color application, please add on nail art if desired.
*Results vary based on lifestyle, condition of natural nails, length of extensions and home maintenance.
Gel Overlay Services
If you're looking for some extra strength but not the extra length we also offer Gel Overlays. We use the latest technology in removable hard gel which gives clients the versatility of having a low commitment solution that has more strength than a standalone gel polish manicure. This is also a great choice if you don't have the time commitment or need to come every two weeks for a manicure. Average wear of this option is 3-4+ weeks. It's a great coat of armor to help grow out nail damage caused by picking off a manicure or improper removal from other salons. We suggest filling this manicure every 3-4 weeks and nail art can be added on as desired. An overlay is also a great way to grow out the natural length of your nails and see how far you can get!
We don't offer Acrylic/Dip
We do not offer Acrylic or Dip services. If you have these nail coatings on please have them removed before booking a service with us. One of our techs is extremely allergic to some of the ingredients in these products so we will not be able to service you if you come in with them on.
There is no such a thing as a nail coating that can harm your nails. Nail damage occurs when unsafe application or removal practices are used or by picking, peeling and prying your nails off at home. There's a phrase in our industry that goes "It's not the tools, it's the fools." If your nail tech is unskilled or uneducated in nail safety there's a chance that nail damage can happen with rushed and over aggressive nail prep and removal.
Acrylic and Dip (which is a form of acrylic) have been around since the 80's. We are trained in and have chosen to use the latest in gel coating technology as these products have both a safe and fast removal, no odor or vapors, have no outdated/harmful ingredients and are the most resilient nail coatings on the market.
Our services are based on time and because our artists' talents and specialties are diverse what you can receive inside a time frame varies. If you have something very specific in mind please feel free to reach out and we can match you up with the best artist and service for your desired look. In general, these are some options of what you can achieve inside our service times.

Our Pedicure services come in both Basic and Plus options and in both traditional lacquer and shellac. Basic services are ideal for people that maintain their pedicure every 4-6 weeks and need minimal intervention. Plus services are ideal for clients that would like a little extra pampering or it has been a hot minute since their toes have been done.
Shellac pedicures are instantly dry, making them a perfect choice for our New England winters- get a pedi then immediately put your boots back on! They are also great for athletes or work out enthusiasts that have constant friction on their nails, Shellac will remain shinier and chip less than traditional polish.
