Nails


Clients often ask which nail polish is right for them. Here’s your quick guide.

1. Standard Polish – Standard nail lacquer consists of an organic polymer and other components to protect the nails. We use a base and top coat to help standard polishes last longer. Standard polish can be removed easily in the spa or at home with acetone-based remover.

2. Organic – Organic polishes are water-based and chemical-free. These non-toxic polishes are safe for pregnant women and children, and have little to no odor.

3. Gel polish – Gels are a long-lasting variety of polis that instead of drying naturally, is cured under a UV lamp. Gel manicures typically last up to two weeks with proper care, but also require salon removal.

4. SNS – SNS stands for Signature Nail Systems. It’s a branded powder-dipping system, in which a nail technician applies the polish, dips it in the powder and repeats the process. SNS manicures typically last up to three weeks with proper care, and also require expert removal.
