What IS a manicure?
At Sisters Salon & Day Spa we offer services for everyone including manicures! There are different types of manicures and acrylics available out there and we’d like to take a moment to let you know what we offer.
Basic Manicure – the nail and cuticle are cleaned up, followed by a light massage with lotion. Polish is applied to your natural nail.
Spa Manicure – soak in a luxurious hand bath, the nail and cuticle are cleaned up, followed by a sugar scrub. Lotion with a massage and polish is applied to your natural nail.
Gel Polish Manicure – the nail and cuticle are cleaned up then gel polish is applied to your natural nail using a LED light to cure each coat of polish. Lotion with a light massage then follows. The Gel polish lasts longer (up to 2 weeks) for a longer lasting manicure.
Gel Polish Removal and Repolish – the Gel polish is removed by soaking it off (to keep the integrity of the nail) and then reapplied as described above.
Acrylic Nails – an extension (tip) is attached to your natural nail to add length. An application of acrylic is applied to the nail to add a hard protective layer over the entire nail. The acrylic grows out and to maintain the look they must be filled every 2 to 3 weeks. This process takes longer than a Spa or Gel Manicure as it’s a special craft to master the art of applying and forming the acrylic.
