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 and removed with zero nail damage and 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.
Hard Gel Services
Hard Gel Overlay: Hard gel adds a super strong coating underneath your Shellac. This coating is suited for people looking to have perfect nails all the time. As this is not a soak-off gel, it is a high commitment, long-term solution. An overlay goes on your natural length and can help you maintain a longer length if desired as your nails grow out over time. Most clients maintain this service every 3-4 weeks.
Hard Gel Extensions: An extension set is for people looking to add length to their natural nails. Want to be Cardi B? Want to have fierce claws? You've found your service. Ideal for clients looking to add medium to extreme length. If you only want a slight length addition you can achieve this through booking a Hard Gel Overlay and growing out your length in 1-2 visits. Your natural nails must be in moderate to good condition with some length already there in order to successfully have an extension set applied. Nail biters or those with damaged nails are advised to do repair treatments or overlays before having an extension set. This is the highest commitment long term manicure solution. Extension sets are not applied for one time events such as weddings or proms as the removal process is not a soak off. Special occasion extensions sets will be available later in 2020.
