Perfect the polished look

The fingernails should be a woman’s showcase – but too often we neglect them. And the most commonly given reason is time, or lack of it. All it takes is less than an hour, once a month. Not much time for a sensational result.

No matter what you do or how old you are, if you’re a woman, you always want to feel and look good. There’s also something else we all desire: we want to feel confident, feminine, and attractive. In order to achieve that, we dress well, put a make-up on, do our hair, etc. Unfortunately, we often forget that the look is never complete until we have our nails done. You can wear a great outfit, but it is your nails that make the statement. Not to forget that it’s your business card!

The number one reason why women don’t get their nails done is time. How do I know that? Because I’m a nail tech. Many women think they need to spend hours in a salon. How about 45 minutes every 3-4 weeks? Doesn’t it sound great? I know it does, and you can always find that time to fit an appointment without ruining your busy schedule.

UV gel polish manicure, commonly known as “Shellac” (that’s just a product name), is the easiest way to tick all the boxes – it will make you look great and give you an unbelievable boost of confidence every day, without the need of spending hours on painting your nails! Forget about ordinary nail varnishes, which require a long time to dry and don’t last longer than 3 days, if you’re lucky.

UV gel polish is a XXI century product developed with busy women in mind. You can wear it on your own nails, or on top of acrylic/gel, if you like longer nails. You can enjoy a colour, French finish (pink & white), or nail art – there are no limits, as everything can be done here, despite the length of your nails. The most important aspect is that the treatment is fast – the product is cured under the UV or LED lamp for 2 minutes and 30 seconds per layer, so once you’re done, your nails are fully dry and ready to use. What’s more – the product is safe for your nails, and as long as they’re done professionally, there won’t be any damage to your natural nail. Maintenance  is required every 3-4 weeks, depending on how fast your nails grow, and you can have the colour/ design changed with ease.

My clients work in various industries, but they all have one common thing after their nails have been done: they sparkle! They have a grin on their faces and their confidence level is to the roof. That’s the power of a good manicure. So simple, yet so effective. Don’t believe me? Why don’t you try it?
