Frequently Asked Questions


Do you do Acrylics?


No, we do not.


Do you do Gels?


Now that is a loaded question these days!! Yes we do Gel Nails!! In fact, that is our specialty. The brand of gel we use is Gelousy Gel Nail Systems. It is the best artificial gel on the far! we've tried so many we've lost count at this point. This gel we talk about is true Gel Nails, no glue, bonding agent, etc. This gel is an artificial nail product, it will add strength, length and thickness (Similar to Acrylics).

We also offer Gel Polish (which is a immensely growing product currently) ...That comes in a variety of brand names and we use a few of them including but not limited to: Gelish, OrlyGelFX, IBD Gel Polish, Essie, OPI Gel Color, Professional GELeration, and more! Gel Polish is probably something you have heard when people say "Gel Manicure" Gel Polish is an overlay product, it does NOT give you length or strength. It is a hybrid of gel and polish, it has the staying power of gel but the consistency of a polish. Gel polishes have the ability to stay on for up to 3 that does vary from person to person.

We also offer Shellac. Yes, we know exactly what you are thinking :"Isn't that the same as Gel Polish"? NO, NO, NO, NO!!! It most certainly is NOT the same. Shellac was the first colored polish that cured with a UV light to hit the market, and that was in March 2010, it quickly grew in popularity!! Shellac is manufactured by CND (Creative Nail Design) ... a professional brand of nail products. The bottles actually say Shellac on them. The bottle also says 'Power Polish' ... Shellac is a polish that cures under a UV light... it has NO GEL IN IT, AT ALL. Shellac is the perfect alternative to clients who are allergic to artificial products like Gel and/or Acrylic. Shellac has NO artificial products in it, what makes it cure under a UV light is the UV curing agent within it, not gel. (That is what is so confusing) We LOVE offering Shellac because we have had so many clients come to us for regular polish manicures and tell us they developed an allergic reaction to an artificial product (Gel or Acrylic) and that they an only wear regular polish and then we introduce them to Shellac and they fall in love!!!

Do you offer Nail Art?


Yes, we love nail art!

Yes! We have over 100 different glitters and we can use them with any product, Gels, Gel Polishes, Shellac, etc.
