FYIs Things to know!
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!
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.
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).
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!)
Please make plans to eat before or after your appointment
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!
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.
