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.
Hard Gel Services
Hard Gel is currently only offered by owner Richael. This coating can be used as an overlay on your natural length or to sculpt custom extensions. This service is maintained every 2-4 weeks as needed by doing a rebalance (fill). Hard Gel cannot be soaked off so it is a high commitment solution to having perfect nails. This is the strongest nail coating we offer. Many clients that are in this coating have been coming for years without any breaks in service (pandemic excluded). Currently this service is only for existing clients. If you are a new client interested in this service you may request to be added to the waitlist by e-mailing email@example.com
Acrylic and 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.
Proper and safe removal of dip and acrylic can take up to an hour. Often times these products are applied too thick and because our number one goal is keep the integrity of your nail intact, we take time and care to get the job done. The process involves reducing the coating, wrapping and soaking with acetone, then gently ease off loosened product. This is repeated until the coating is gone. It may be much slower than what you're accustomed too but it is the safest way to get these products off. Please plan your visit with us accordingly.
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.
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.
