Shaping and soaking
Manicures are not simply about painting colour on your nails. Having chosen your colours or type of manicure, your manicurist will then ask you to choose a nail shape. Long or short? Squared or rounded? The choice is yours. Next, soaking your hands in warm water softens and cleans the nails, so that the cuticle work that follows doesn’t hurt your nail beds.
Buffing and polishing
Your manicurist will push the cuticles off your nails. Manicurists don’t leave cuticles alone because they don’t want to paint the cuticle that covers your nail, as that polish would chip easily. Next comes buffing, which smooths your nails and helps the polish to adhere properly.
Massage And Removal Of Old Polish
Different manicurists have their signature techniques, but they will generally apply lotion and massage you up to your elbows. This is followed by using alcohol to remove the lotion and any old paint.
Please note as we are a mobile service we don’t offer gel, sticker or acrylic nails, you will need to visit a salon for this. The manicurist will bring a limited range of colours with them, if you would like to have a specific colour, you are welcome to supply one for us to use.
