Now Offering Online Booking!

Please Read Before Your 1st Appointment

I now have online booking!
Please use the program to book your future appointments. It will allow you to book 30 days in advance.
My online booking program will send out a confirmation text 2 days before your appointment. Please confirm you will be there.
I suggest booking an appointment sooner than later. If you need to change your appointment, I kindly ask that you give me a couple days notice so that I have time to re book it and not miss out on my chance to work.
I require a 35+ hour (more than just the day before your apt) notice for a cancellation and/or appointment changes. Last minute cancellation/changes will result in a $20 fee required before your next appointment.

-No shows will not be tolerated-
(I understand "life happens" so if it was a glitch and you'd like to continue being my client, there will be a $40 no show fee)
If you message me 10 minutes before your appointment needing to cancel due to a good reason, there will be a $20 last min cancellation when you've previously confirmed.

Upon booking your first appointment I will require a non refundable $20 deposit. THIS WILL BE PUT TOWARDS YOUR FIRST SERVICE. I require this deposit for same day bookings as well. Failure to give proper cancellation/apt change notice (35+ hours) will result in your $20 deposit being used for the $20 fee and will not be returned to you. For your deposit I accept eTransfers. Please send the deposit after reading through my policies. Thank you for understanding.

** I accept Cash  and etransfer**
I have a detailed price list under my "Services" tab,
any Questions, please feel free to send me a message.
I am set up for auto deposit etransfers. Please send me the payment sometime the same day. Failure to do so will result in cash only next time.

Most clients go 3 -6 weeks in between fills.
Your nails are an investment an you need to take care of them. When your nails grow out, so does the reinforcement I build. Your nails are more likely to break if you wait too long. Everyone is different in how long they can go in between fills. Lifestyle, length, growth rate, shape etc all play a part. I can let you know how long you can go.

2020 gave me the opportunity to re look at my business and services offered.  I have since fallen in love with a service I refer to as "Gel X."
I therefore am no longer offering LONG SCULPTED ACRYLIC SETS.
I am working 1/5 of what I used to and will also be limiting the more intricate inlay-ed designs.
I am trying to keep services times to 60-90 minutes. I am not offering 2+ hour art sets at the moment.
If you are concerned about options I recommend sending me a few inspo pics so that I can ensure you know what I'm referring to.

I am no longer booking back to back clients. This means that I am not in the Nail Studio before or after your appointment.
(I am usually running around making sure my toddler is occupied while I work).
I ask that you do not arrive early. If you are early, GREAT! Please call or text me letting me know you are here. I will let you know when everything is clean and I am ready.
If the universe is against you and has caused you to be run late, please let me know you're running behind with as much notice as you can. Please don't message me 5 minutes before your appointment telling me you're 20 minutes late. (Remember I'm balancing work with a toddler ❤ )

Please be advised that I have a very friendly Studio dog. I ask that you do not knock on the nail room door, just walk in.
Please don't acknowledge her until she is calm. We are working on eliminating barking!

If my policies are too much for you or you have any concerns, I understand please just let me know.

Thank you very much!
❤ Diamond Nails Studio ❤

Gel-X extensions are a soft, flexible gel nail extension that are perfectly pre made ahead of time. (They visually look like a press-on or glue-on nail.) They are not made of plastic and are not applied with glue. Each client gets uniquely sized depending on shape and style desired. The pre sculpted Gel X extension is then applied directly on top of your full natural nail using a special formulated Gel. The service starts at a base price of $40 (if you’re satisfied with one of the preset colours) However you can at this point prep the extension for a more fun freestyle, customized art design & service!

Most people prefer it! Everything that is happening is just for you! Our Studio is very welcoming with lots of nail art on display, drawers of glitter to go through and endless amounts of colours to choose from. You must like dogs, as our studio dog will sucker you for some love! My daughter has her own corner in the studio so she might be working on something. If we really get a long, I’ll probably make you listen to BINGO! 😅

I love my nail studio because it has a backyard entrance that overlooks the garden’s Willow Tree and Golf course peacefulness.

Each service is customized to each client. I never want to rush. I generally know how long each individual client will take after 2 appointments and understanding the style of nail you enjoy.
Fills range from 35-60 mins
Since 2020 I have revamped my services to include a quicker and more efficient method.
A new simple art set is now 60 mins
A removal of old set and application of a new simple art set is now 70 mins
I generally don’t book clients back to back so there is generally no rush for time if you want additional art!
I now offer an all inclusive art service. 90 minute new sets with art are $80

CONFIRMATION TEXT:
As per my policies, a confirmation text is sent out 2 days before your appointment. I require you to respond to that message so I know you’re going to show up!

ART/DECALS/JEWELS:
I have LOTS of art options that can be applied after your nails are sculpted. If you plan on checking out sticker, stamp etc options please ask to look through the options WHILE I do your nails, not after. It saves a lot of time! It is also a good idea to discuss your next set art options while we are wokring on your current set, just so you get an idea of all the different options….. if you like options 😉

STILETTO CHARGE (XL&XXL length):
I charge for XL & XXL nail lengths. These nails cost more and the nail lengths are double to triple the length of a “salon nail” thus using more product and time.

PRICING:
I charge by service type/time. It takes one hour to do a short/natural set &/or 1 colour GelX set. One hour services are roughly $65. Extra charges come from external art like hand painting, decals, studs, foils, jewels, rhinestones, 3D etc. I offer 90 minutes services that include all the “A La Carte Add Ons” for $80. So anything more than an hour and less than 1.5 hours will be between $65 & $80. Any questions, or concerns, please ask prior to choosing your new set 😚

FILL OR CHANGE?:
According to my lingo, an acrylic “fill” is where we just “fill” the growth. Meaning everything else stays the same and all we do is fill the gap of where your nails have grown out. (I have 2 fill prices: 30-45 mins receive a $5 discount, all other fills are a standard $57) When we “fill” you nails, you can use a different colour to switch up the look. We can also do various things to make your new set look different then the last such as painting a gel colour on top, adding stamps, decals, chrome, glitter ect. (Keep in mind art, gel and other external art will cost extra).


CALLE LOVE:
Everyone loves Calle. I know its hard not to, she grew up in the studio and adores your attention! Please be aware that when I prep your nails, they are prepped for an application that will last a month, if you get oils on you freshly prepped nails, the product will not adhere properly and you will have issues, so keep that in mind when giving her love (use your palm or ask for her doggy brush >no scratches).
Also when I apply crystals, I am using glue, and it most likely is not dry until I am done your service. So if you get sucked into giving her a pet while I am using glue -you will most likely get dog hair all over! (Best just to sit and get your nails done!)

FOOD:
Please make plans to eat before or after your appointment
NOT DURING!
It’s unfair to both me and Calle who might of skipped lunch. Not to mention, I am working on your hands and need them! If you are in a starvation situation, please ask to take a sec to fill the void prior to us starting. Smoothies and drinks are totally fine!

NAIL LAMP:
Some clients are skeptical on how far they can go into the UV/LED Nail Lamp. There are actually little grooves where your fingertips touch, so if you don’t feel them, you can go further in. PLEASE guide your hand slowly and carefully into the lamp so you don’t hit them on the lamp and cause imperfections in the gel. There should be zero discomfort when your hand is in the light. Some people do have sensitive nail beds, so if you feel heat please let me know so we can avoid it! 😊
Also, sometimes depending on how you’ve placed your hand, the outerside of your thumb might not get enough light and not cure properly causing a dull spot. Try to adjust your thumbs so they receive proper light. Any questions about this, please ask me.

Clear Sets are really popular right now. Depending on your nail history of what you get and how I’ve done them, it might not be possible to switch to clear at the appointment you’re hoping for. Please let me know you’re plans for a clear set, as we may need to start fresh with a New Fully Sculpted Set and I will need to book the appropriate time to do so. *A new set is a great time to do a clear set if you’re thinking about it.

👇This just in….!!!👇

Clear sets are possible each and every time with a Gel X service ♥️♥️

I am definitely ok if you arrive early. Please message me saying that you’re here when I am ready! Please do not be late! Traffic/construction can be horrible and inconsistent – I understand, so if you are running behind please shoot me a text so I at least know you’re hustling to get here 🙂
Some clients prefer coming early because of the unpredictable traffic, and wait in their car – just message me letting me know ‘you’re early if I am ready’ – sometimes I am!
If you are 15 minutes late with no contact, I will most likely cancel you’re appointment. You will be charged $40 to rebook
