Benefits of a professional manicure at home

Don’t run around to get to the nail bar for your regular nail appointment, having them at home makes upkeep very easy. There is no need to worry about going into your handbag to gets keys and risk chipping or smudging your fresh manicure. Not having to go anywhere and having your nails done at home, takes the stress away and saves you time.

What to expect from your manicure booking

Your expert nail technician will offer professional manicures at the standard you’d expect from the nail salon or nail bar. They can offer advice on which colour to go for and recommend a nail shape for you. You are welcome to have a try of shades if you are unsure which colour to choose.

How to prepare for your manicure

Your beauty therapist will bring everything they need, including clean tools, towels and a range of polishes. It’s a good idea to prepare somewhere comfortable with good lighting for you and your therapist to sit.

Manicure aftercare

For a classic polish application your nails will need around 10 minutes to dry afterwards, gel polish applications will be fully dry from the UV lamp at the end of your appointment. It is best to apply cuticle oil daily, between nail appointments, to help keep your nails nourished and hydrated. Avoid picking at your polish which can be tempting but your polish will not last as long and can also lead to damaging your nails. Don’t cut or file your nails especially if you have gel polish applied as it will cause them to split and chip. We also advise that you wear protective gloves for household chores.

Frequently asked questions

What is gel polish?

Gel polish is a nail polish that contains something called shellac. It is applied just like normal polish but requires a UV light to ‘cure’ them and allow them to dry and to keep up the long-lasting strength and shine they are known for. Because of this strength gel polish lasts longer on your nails before chipping and losing its shine. The brand Shellac is a well-known gel polish produced by the brand CND.

How often should I get a manicure?

Well, this does depend a little. The average upkeep of a gel manicure is 2 weeks as after this time the polish has grown out a little and can start to chip and/or peel, however, if your nails grow very fast, you have medium to long nails or if you like your polish to be always at its absolute best, then you’ll want to consider a weekly gel polish renewal. Equally, you can often stretch a gel polish manicure to a maximum of 3 weeks if needed. A classic polish application usually lasts around a week before needing to be renewed.

What brands do you use?

Therapists use their own preferred brands, you can view this on the therapist's profile at the time of choosing a therapist when booking an appointment.

How can I make my gel manicure last well?

  • Apply cuticle oil to the whole nail every day
  • Avoid filing your nails
  • Avoid solvent oils and hands in detergent/washing up water
  • Wear gloves for chores
  • Avoid too much chlorine/sun
  • Avoid picking at the polish
  • Book a professional removal after 3 weeks

Can I book a specific beauty therapist or nail technician?

Yes, when booking your appointment you will be able to select your preferred nail technician or beauty therapist.

What preparations do you have in place for managing Covid-19?

We are very conscious of the importance of keeping both our clients and beauty professionals as safe as possible during the Coronavirus epidemic. We have put together a series of guidelines to ensure that all parties feel comfortable and safe during their appointment.
