Polish Up Your Knowledge on Nails

woman receiving a manicure at a nail salonDo you polish your nails at home, but want a change? Or perhaps you stick to one type of manicure, but want to venture out. We have the lowdown on the different types of manicures you can get at our nail salon here at Selah Salon & Spa.

Why Do So Many Women Love Acrylics?

The simple answer is versatility. Acrylic nails offer so many options. If you have trouble growing your nails, acrylics can be added to the tip for extra length. Whether you like a natural look or a dramatic long length, your nail technician can offer that. Not only that, you can choose from colors, designs, gems and more to add to the nail. These nails lend themselves to so much more since there is room for more designs.

The downside is the nail growing out. Your nail will look obviously fake if you don’t get fills done after two or three weeks. You can solve this problem by visiting the nail salon before the acrylics grow out too much. Also, extra care needs to be paid to your nails once they grow out. You will want to keep them nice and clean to make sure bacteria or yeast doesn’t grow.

What is the Fuss of Gel Nails?

First of all, gel nail are great because they last so long. They don’t chip off like normal nail polish. They offer a great shine and sleek look as well. Not only that, but your salon will most likely offer dozens of colors. A good nail salon will constantly have new selections for the season. Here at Selah Salon & Spa we like to stay up-to-date with the latest trends.

The downside to gel nail is just like acrylics, they will grow out and your unpainted nail will start to show. You will also be exposed to UV lights during the painting to let the gel paint cure, or dry. And much like acrylics they are removed by soaking the nails in nail polish remover.

A Simple Manicure at Your Nail Salon

If you are more of a minimalist you can get a manicure on your own nails. You can choose a color, a clear coat or even a french manicure. Your cuticles will be trimmed and your hands moisturized. You will a natural look with a pop. The only downside to this type of manicure is the fact that it doesn’t last very long. If you want to upkeep your nails with a constant manicure you will have to return to the nail salon every one to two weeks.
