Then the technician proceeded to groom my nails by filing and shaping them into my desired shape which was oval, but you can get them shaped either square or round. Next, before applying Shellac, she applied olive oil around my nail bed to soften the dry areas around the cuticle. Next, by using a sharp, sterile cuticle nipper, the dead skin was finally removed painlessly and quickly. She didn’t forget to clean underneath and on the top areas of my nails lightly with a nailbrush dipped into the soapy water bowl. Remember to repeat the same process on the other hand along with a good buff and shine.
The next step the nail technician did to my hands after grabbing a dab of lotion, she proceeded to gently give my hands a nice massage that started from the fingertips on up to the wrist area. This feels very soothing and relieves pressure and stress in the arms and hands. Now it’s time to head over to the sink to wash my hands thoroughly, with warm, soapy water and a brush to remove all of the oil and dusty residue off of my hands. There’s always nice, clean white towels waiting near the sink to dry your hands on. Now my hands look and feel so soft, shiny & brand new! Meanwhile, the technician is over at the station waiting for me to return so she can apply the nail polish of my choice which you either bring with you or choose a color as you wait or enter the salon.
As the nail tech painted over my nails carefully and neatly with a neutral hue while also applying a top coat to seal in the color for protection, I couldn’t help but to admire my newly manicured nails. They also appeared to be a little longer and definitely felt stronger as I happily observed my hands. Finally, I head over to the drying station and sit for at least 10-15 minutes maximum so that my nail polish doesn’t smudge. Twelve minutes later, my nails have completely dried, this is one manicure job that definitely deserves a tip. So I paid the nail tech,expressed my satisfaction with the work she did and assured her I will definitely return for another visit.
