For some, a traditional manicure is not all that appealing. Sitting for an hour to have your nails buffed, rubbed, filed, then piled high with acrylic just does not seem all that great to some. There is an alternative however and that is a gel manicure. So what is a gel manicure exactly?

 

Gel manicure is the use of a gel polish, top, base and color coat, that is used to help strengthen the nails and can last up to a week or more without chipping or cracking like traditional polish.

The technician will then apply a base coat that is going to help the color adhere and is going to help the gel polish to set. (more…)

Show Off Your Unique Personality

Nail art can be used to express your personality to the world around you. You can make your own designs with some practice, but you can also get it done at the spa. Getting a manicure is fun and relaxing, and it makes you feel good about yourself. That’s because looking nice makes you feel happy too.

 

Hand care is important because your hands are one of the most visibly noticeable parts of you. You should keep your nails clipped and filed in your favorite shape to show off who you are. When you hand a cashier money in a store or shake someone’s hand at work, they will notice how well you have taken care of your hands. If you have nail art, your hands will be especially noticeable and you should expect to receive a lot of compliments. Even a simple multi-color striped pattern looks fantastic.
