Your choice of service depends on how you want the nails to look. If you want to clean up your nails and have a manicure, you should go for the ‘nail care.’ Or if you want to strengthen your own nails or have beautiful long-lasting nails, then ‘calgel’ would be your pick. Likewise, you want to have long nails and try various designs but cannot grow your nails long for some reason. If this is the case, then you would choose the ‘sculpture’. Always feel free to ask our staff and make requests. We will create the nails you want as we work through your ideas. Design (art) can be anything from designed nail samples at espoir to those found in magazines. You can even create your originals based on the nail deign you found elsewhere. Please ask our staff about it.
Acrylic sculpture is recommended for those who have cosmetic problems with your nails or want to extend the nail length. Its material is very strong yet flexible enough to form in the desired shape. We don’t recommend using calgel to extend the nail length, but you should use sculpture for the longer nail.
Calgel is ideal for you if you have already grown your nails long, you have weak nails, or want to strengthen the nails. It adheres well to the nail without hurting it at all and will last relatively long. It also inhibits possible growth of fungus because it doesn’t allow water inside the nail.
It takes normal manicure color a long time to completely dry and starts to wear off after about a week. Calgel is dried quickly under the UV light so you hardly wait. It usually lasts 3 to 5 weeks so it is very economical.
1 color or gradation for about 60 minutes and French for about 90 minutes. Removal of old calgel takes an additional 60 minutes. Art design, options, etc. will take longer accordingly.
Natural, clear, 1 clear-lame color for about 90 minutes; gradation for about 2 hours; and French for about 2.5 hours.
Please refer to the service information page for more information on treatment times.
About 3 to 5 weeks on fingernails and 8 to 10 weeks on toenails. We recommend redoing the fingernail calgel every 3 to 4 weeks to keep them beautiful.
Calgel is susceptible to water and detergent. We suggest you wear rubber gloves when doing any such housework. Letting the natural nails dry will cause them to be brittle. So to prevent it, frequently apply cuticle oil to the nail.
Calgel is the type of manicure recommended for those who have problems with weak, fragile nails and want to extend their nails. With minimal damage to the nail, it reinforces the nail by directly adhering to it.
Yes. Although you can select them both on the spot, it just depends on the availability the time. So we recommend you book your appointment by phone in advance.
