What to expect from your nail appointment
5pm Spa & Beauty has highly professional technicians you can put 100% of your confidence in to give you perfect nails. Appointments last at least an hour so make sure you leave enough time in your schedule.
When you go to your appointment, your technician will prepare your natural fingernail for the acrylics by removing any existing polish, trimming and buffing them and pushing your cuticles back.
They’ll then add some primer and apply tips with glue. The tips extend your fingernail and act as a base. The acrylic liquid and powder mixture is then applied to the fingernails and tips with a brush.
Once dried, the technician can shape them with specialist tools like a grit file. Now they can be painted and finished with clear polish to extend their life.
Your own fingernails will continue to grow under the acrylics and after a couple of weeks they will be pushed up as the new growth becomes visible at the base of the fingernail. You can get acrylic infills to extend the acrylics life and hide this new growth.
Infills are quicker to do and generally take around 30 minutes, longer if you also want them painted. All offers on 5pm will show you how long your appointment will take.
