Frequently asked questions

How long will a basic manicure or pedicure last?

A basic manicure or pedicure will last one to two weeks, depending on your lifestyle and the type of service you’ve had. If, for example, you work in the garden without gloves, your manicure probably won’t last long. Artificial nail services, such as acrylics, tips, wraps and gels maintain their fresh appearance much longer as they are more durable.

Gels and acrylics are similar in that they both can be used to extend the length of the nails and make them stronger. One advantage of gel services is that they are odorless and transparent. Like acrylic, gels can be applied over the natural nail or over artificial nail tips.

As the gel or artificial nail is placed on your natural nails, your natural nails will continue to grow. Depending on the growth rate of your natural nails, the gel layer or your artificial nails will need to be re-treated. Usually the interval is 3 to 4 weeks.

We disinfect and sterilize using only the methods prescribed by the Ministry of Health. After a thorough scrub with a disinfectant and water, all used instruments go through a medical grade instrument washer that uses a strong chemical disinfectant. Once washed, all instruments are then packaged in sterilization pouches and run through our autoclave. During our nails services, we employ one time use wooden spatulas, nail brushes, nail buffer pads and spacers.

We NEVER re-use them. Our spa towels are replaced in between clients and are washed with bleach. Our environment well ventilated and all services stations are cleaned multiple times throughout the day, and always in-between clients. All nail polish applications are performed using our hygienic method of pouring the base coat, top coat and colour into individual bottles and one time use nail polish brushes. 

WE DO NOT SHARE nail polish or brushes! We take pride in our spotless spa atmosphere and it is our pleasure to provide you with treatments that are, not only fabulous and long lasting, but also safe. Relax, you’re in good hands.

We use IBD and O•P•I as our products
