|We use the two top brands in Gel manicures: CND shellac and O.P.I. Both have strong ethics, to preserve the health of the nail and ensure their products do ‘no harm’. Find out more about the difference types of manicure below|
|Nail Enhancements – gel/acrylic||£40.00|
|We use pre-formed tips that are bonded with adhesive to your own existing nail. Your nails are lightly buffed to remove the shine to ensure the enhancements stick successfully. Tips instantly lengthen your nails, and can be worn as a natural nail or with polish or shellac. They are removed either by soaking in acetone or filing off depending on the product used. It is important to us that the nail plate is not over buffed so no unnecessary damage occurs.
None of our product contain MMA (Methyl Methacrylate). It is a dangerous chemical which can cause permanent damage to your nail and health. It is banned in the USA but may be used for nail extensions in the UK.
We never use electric files at The Beauty Clinic.

Manicures – more information
The main differences between a soak-off Gel manicure and conventional one are as follows:
- Soak-off gels, are harder wearing than normal varnish, lasting two-three weeks.
- They are instantly dry when you leave the salon, so no risk of smudging.
- The rock hard finish keeps its shine for the duration of the manicure.
- Gels require 10-15 minutes of soaking in acetone to remove. This can leave the nail a little dehydrated, but cuticle oil and a good hand cream will rectify this.
- Conventional manicures use a varnish which lasts for up to a week, but is vulnerable to chipping.
- The drying time can be several hours to be rock hard.
- The varnish can fade, swimming and detergents can reduce the shine.
- It is easy to remove with a good quality non-acetone remover and the product should not negatively affect the nail.
Home kits and cheap ‘nail bars’ should be avoided because the nail plate can be severely jeopardised by inferior products, poor application, harsh buffing of the nail plate and aggressive removal. Poor hygiene can leave the nail infected and permanently damaged.
