Why don’t we use the razor blades when doing a pedicure?

It is illegal in the state of New Jersey for Nail Tech’s to use them. A Podiatrist is trained in using these blades. They also can transmit disease if not properly sanitized.

Is it ok if I shave my legs right before I get a pedicure?

It is best not to shave your legs right before a pedicure. The scrubs used can cause an irritation and sometimes burn. When we shave we microscopy cut ourselves so if you are at a salon that you aren’t 100% sure about the way they clean the pedicure tub you could be introducing bacteria into your system. It is best that you shave AFTER you pedicure. We don’t mind, I promise, plus after your pedicure, you will get a closer shave. But if you insist on shaving before, do it at least 24hours prior.

Why should I take the time to have my nails professionally manicured?

Beautiful, well-groomed nails are an important part of your overall look. Attractive nails and hands enhance your appearance, whether you spend your days in a kitchen or in a boardroom. A basic manicure takes between 20-25 minutes. Gels average about half an hour to an hour. The cost is quite reasonable, and the results are well worth it.

How long will a basic manicure or pedicure last?

A basic manicure or pedicure will last one to two weeks, depending on your lifestyle and the type of service you’ve had. If, for example, you work in the garden without gloves, your manicure probably won’t last long.

Gels maintain their fresh appearance much longer. Polish between visits can be used but is not necessary.

What are the main advantages of gel nails?

For people who have a tendency to bite or pick at their nails, there is a 90 percent success rate of stopping with artificial nail applications. There are two reasons for this:

First, people are less likely to ruin something they’ve spent time and money on.
Secondly, nail biters are generally inspired by having beautiful hands for the first time in their lives.

What are gel nails? How do they differ from Acrylic Nails?

Gels and Acrylic Nails are similar in that they both can be used to extend the length of the nails and make them stronger. Several advantages of the gel nails service is that they are odorless, no need for acid, more flexible, bond naturally, don’t lift, don’t damage your natural nails like the acrylic nails, and stay very shiny between visits. Gels nails can be applied over the natural nails.

What is a “Pink and White” and a “Back Fill” nail service?

“Pink and White” refers to the use of two colors of acrylic applied to the nails to produce a more permanent, natural-looking “French” manicure look.

A “back-fill” refers to the addition of “drilling” off the white portion of the nail product and applying new white nail product to the area drilled off.

Because of the crystal clear nature of gels, these services are almost obsolete. The natural color of the nail shines through. “White” or “Soft White” gel is used on the tip to enhance the natural tip color. The white is removed with each fill by simple filing and new gel is repainted. It is coated with a strong shiny finish that does not wear off.

Why do nails split or become yellow?

For natural nails, excessive exposure to the elements or chemicals, poor diet, nail biting and other habits can be the cause.

CND Gel, OPI, Shellac,Gelish,…, products don’t yellow. We’re finding that poor quality gel polishes break down and yellow, which is why we don’t use them. Any splitting around the tip can be the result of using your nail as a tool. Some new habits may need to be formed.

How can I do touch-ups and repairs on my nails at home?

The great thing about Heavenly Nail’s Gel Nails is there will rarely be a need!!!

What is a Gel Manicure?

With a Gel Manicure, we use a flexible gel lacquer that is cured in a UV lamp.
Gel polish is applied without roughing up the natural nail. Gel lacquer is applied similarly to traditional nail polish but each layer is cured under the light. No length can be added but a uniform faux length can be painted on with a French manicure. Gel polish comes in hundreds colors. It is removed by wrapping in foil 2-3 weeks later.
