Q: Do you use a drill to remove nails?
A: Absolutely not. When removing any gel or acrylic products, I either use the manufacturers recommended soak off procedure, or manually buff them off, reducing damage to your nails.

Q: Do you offer treatments to children?
A: No. Unfortunately, I am not insured to work on children under the age of 16, and would highly recommend against applying such a treatment to such young nails, due to the long term damage it can cause.

A: Unfortunately, I am a completely mobile service and only offer my treatments at your place of work or home.

A: Unfortunately, I don't offer this as an option.

Q: We have dogs at home... do you mind?
A: Absolutely not, I love dogs!

Q: I've had my nails done elsewhere... can you remove it for me?
A: Before I can apply a nail treatment for you, any existing gel or acrylic must be removed in advance. For gel nails, your existing technician should be able to provide you with the instructions to safely remove them, usually by soaking them off. For acrylics, these would need to be buffed off in most cases. Acrylics, once removed could hide infections or nails that are not healthy enough for any further treatments. Because of my removal or the infill (although done correctly by me) It leaves me liable for the clients nail care immediately, to include the health of the nail, something I’m not willing to be responsible for. Removal should be done safely by the technician that applied it in the first place.

Q: I've got Shellac nails on, how do I remove them?
A: This is a very straightforward procedure. You'll need some acetone, cotton wool and tin foil. Soak small pieces of cotton wool with some acetone (available from most high street stores such as Boots) and place on each nail individually. Wrap these nails in small strips of tin foil for 10-12 minutes. Remove the tin foil and then scratch the residue off once it has begun to crystalise. If it is still hard to remove, reapply the cotton wool and tin foil for a further 3-5 minutes. If acetone is not available, use acetone nail varnish remover, but this will increase wrapping times.

A Few Kind Words From My Pink Ladies

"I got my nails done last week for Prom and they looked great. Got a lot of comments how they looked much better than acrylics. I live in Coventry so had to go over to Solihul to get them done as no where in Coventry do gel nails. I have previously had acrylics which made my nails thin and week which is why i was recommended to have gel. My nails still look amazing and have lasted very well, i look forward to getting them done again soon. Thank you very much Kirsty xx"
