What are the benefits of professional manicures?

Professional manicures are much more than simply adding a couple of coats of polish to improve the appearance of your nails.

There are also many physiological benefits to treating your hard working hands to regular manicures. Our hands are the most exposed part of our bodies, almost always on show and one of the first places affected by the visible signs of aging.

Every manicure will begin with an assessment of your nails.

This can be beneficial as nail technicians are trained to recognize signs of diseases and disorders which may need further attention. It will also identify any damaged nails, sore or broken skin and recommend a routine for care at home to compliment your salon treatments. This is often something simple like ensuring a professional lotion/cream and cuticle oil are used daily, it's amazing the difference something that simple can make to the appearance and health of the nails!

Your finger nails will always be cleaned, buffed, trimmed and shaped (depending on your choice of manicure) as part of your manicure. Attention will be paid to the cuticles as they can become tough and unsightly if left uncared for. They will be tidied and treated with cuticle oil to keep them hydrated. Tidy cuticles give a clean canvas to apply polish and vastly improve the appearance of the hands for nail biters as it enlarges the surface of the nail. Healthy cuticles will also help to prevent infection.

Exfoliation is an important part of manicures.

As it aids the natural shedding of dead skin cells and stimulates the blood flow. This will improve the texture of the skin, keeping it smooth and aiding the absorption of lotion.

Many clients find the relaxing hand massage to be their favorite part of the manicure.

This is important as it will moisturize the skin, boost circulation, relieve aches and tension and keep skin supple, prolonging its youthful appearance.

What is a Veneer Manicure?

Veneer is designed for anyone who simply cannot keep their nail polish on longer than a few days. Nobody likes to ruin fresh manicures, Veneer is a perfect manicure system that is designed for people poor on time that needs gorgeous nails that dry instantly and can last up to fourteen days.

It's not acrylic, it's not gel and it's certainly not a nail polish, however the formula is similar to how a polish feels on your nails, it's thin (not chunky looking at all - like those fake types) and flexible like nail polish.

In fact it's very natural and even helps to strengthen naturally weaken nails by adding a strong yet resilient coating for protection that gives a super gloss, shiny finish and you will be glad to know it will not ruin your natural nails and there is no buffing involved.

Veneer goes on like nail polish involving base coat, two coats of colour and a shiney gloss top coat together with a LED light to set your nails.
