Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between gel manicure and regular manicure?

Gel polish manicures is an alternative to regular nail polish manicures. Whereas nail polish requires 30 minutes of air drying time (and can still be smudged or dented in the hours after application), gel polish contains a special polymer that must be “cured” under an LED or UV light – allowing it to harden during the curing cycle and become instantly dry.

Gel Polish Benefits

  • Brilliant, glossy shine – much shinier than regular nail polish.
  • Chip-free results – gel won’t chip off like regular nail polish, which can start to chip within 2-3 days – even with activities like dishwashing or excessive typing.
  • Gel Polish can last up to 3 weeks – salon or professional 3-step gel manicures.

How to remove gel polish?

The removal process for gel is different than regular nail polish, as it requires a “soak-off” method vs. acetone “wipe off” removal.

How long do manicures and pedicures take?

Plan on 30 minutes for a manicure and 30-60 minutes for a pedicure. Drying time is extra but can be as slow or as quickly as you need. We advise letting your polish fully dry before you leave.

How long will I have to wait after getting my nails done?

We recommend waiting about half an hour for your nails to dry and an hour for toes to dry enough to allow you to put shoes on.

In summer months when flip flops can be worn, your drying time can be shortened.

Should I get artificial nails (acrylics, dipping powder, liquid gel) or not?

If you are in the mood for natural beauty, well-polished manicure natural nails are the way to go. If you want extra length, a wow factor, a little spice, go for artificial nails. Either way, we will beautifully transform your nails to the shape you like that best fit you!

What is dipping powder and does Gloss The Nail Lounge offer it?

Dipping powder is an alternative to gel and acrylic. Oder free, light weight and durable, it looks and feels natural. Dipping powder is healthy for your nails and it even has vitamin E and calcium! We offer dipping powder in over 200 colors in SNS, OPI and well-known brand names.
