Lets start with the basics! Nails. Fill us in on Shapes…
Oval, almond, stiletto, round, square, soft square.
There are so many different ways to make your nails look amazing, can you guide us through what a treatment entails?
For example, shellac nails take around 45 minutes that includes removal of old gel polish, shaping & cutting the nail. Gently buffing, if needed detailed cuticle work too.
After that follows, base coat which is cured in the UV lamp , as well as a few coats of colour and top coat.
Shape is chosen by customers individually, but our technicians are always here to help!
Shellac nails cost €33 with removal included. We also recommend using collagen gloves during the treatment to pamper the skin!
Is there a nail care plan for Brides that Fifth Avenue would recommend? Or maybe something our Brides can do before coming into the Salon?
We always suggest before the big day to give toes and hands extra pampering! Meaning dedicate the time for luxury extended spa pedicure and manicure for a flawless look!
A day or two before we would recommend applying gel polish either CND shellac or EMI lac which will last for at least a couple of weeks.
Whats the most popular polish for Brides?
As far as we see, most of the brides choose nude looking nails.
The most popular we find is ombre effect or also called baby boomer. As well as french style nails. As for colours, it would be CND shellac bouqet, veiled, romantique or negligee. But that is very individual to every bride.
A Bride wants long nails for her Wedding Day. She never get’s her nails done and is worried they will be too long and awkward. Whats your best advice?
We would suggest to get extensions at least a month before and see how she would feel with the nails, colour and length. We would not advise to get the nails done straight away before the big day! Since its a big day everything needs to be tested beforehand!
A Bride wants to grow her nails for her wedding day. She bites her nails, whats your best advice?
For nail biters we always recommend getting extensions such as acrylics or polygel which make the nail harder and they would not break. As mentioned before, we advise trying extensions prior to the big day at least a month in advance to see if there is any progress.
