First, your nail technician will apply a cream or lotion to your hands, concentrating on the cuticles. You will then soak your hands in warm water for a few minutes, to allow the creams to work and soften your hands. Your hands will then be dried, followed by shaping your nails to your preferred length and shape. You will then receive a lovely relaxing hand massage. A basic manicure will include the application of nail polish of your choice. A base coat will be applied first, followed by at least two coats of polish.
If you would like your nail polish to last longer, chip-free, you should consider a gel polish or a shellac polish. The polish is set using a UV light. The polish is applied to your own natural nails and can last up to three weeks. But keep in mind, removing gel polish needs to be done by a nail technician to avoid damaging your nails.
A perfectly applied french manicure always looks classy and sophisticated. A clear light pink or beige polish is applied to the whole nail, then white polish is used for the tips of your nails.
Embellishments can be added to your nail design in a variety of ways. Airbrushing allows the nail technician to accurately and quickly add designs to your nails using stencils. 3D designs can be added directly to your nails which can look like works of art! Rhinestones and gems are often added to nail designs, which accentuate and add sparkle.
If your natural nails are not what you would like them to be, there’s no need to worry because you can have artificial nails bonded to your own nails. You can have them cut and shaped to any length you like.
