Acrylic nails are enhancements that you can use to either add length and/or strength to your natural nails. Acrylic is a more durable and harder enhancement than gel. It’s great for people who are more hands on or for those who like extra-long nails such as stiletto or long coffin shapes. It is a powder & liquid mix that sets hard.
Gel is an enhancement that is great for adding a small amount of length to your natural nail. It has more flexibility and is softer than acrylic. Gel is a gel like product that requires a LED lamp to cure/set and harden
Gel polish is not an enhancement. It is a colour, like nail polish, that is painted over your natural nails and over acrylic and gel. The gel polish itself has no strength but can be applied over a thicker, clear base coat to add a small amount of strength to your nails.
For acrylic and gel most clients will need a refill after 2/3 weeks, but this depends on the growth rate of your nails.
New clients are rebooked for your first refill for two weeks and then we can reassess for the next refill.
Any refills booked 4 weeks or more will be charged at a ‘full set price’
Anyone can have these treatments if their nails are healthy.
We cannot apply enhancements to nails that have fungal infections or warts.
If you are having nails applied to help stop nail biting then we will
if you would only like to leave your nails on for a specific event then you can rebook to have them removed safely the following week.
Dry, brittle nails are your worst enemy. Jasmin will prescribe a range of products that will support your hand and nail health.
Remember that your nails are jewels not tools, please do not use them to open cans, dig in the garden or undo screws.
