Earlier this year we had an inspector came in. They DID NOT find a single thing wrong with cleanliness or the process of disinfecting our implements in our shop. We passed our inspection with flying colors! Everything is clean and in wonderful condition. Here at Victoria’s Nails & Spa, we take pride in the cleanliness of our salon as we want you to have the best experience possible. After our inspection, we were told that using Adenna Sterilization Pouches were no longer allowed. We have completely stopped using them as directed. We thank you so much for being our loyal customers. The success of this salon would not be possible without you!
It’s always frustrating when you walk into our salon waiting to relax, but instead being met with the heaping gel polish basket. The basket is overflowing with reds, purples, browns, and oranges galore. Sweat drips from your forehead. Do I want Spare Me a French Quarter OPI or Ice Berry Cocktail by DND, you think to yourself. The thought of picking only one color is overbearing.
What if I told you the decision just got harder?
Victoria’s Nails & Spa carries over 600 gel and regular polishes in a variety of colors, finishes, and opacities, and we keep bringing in more! Once a new line of holiday OPI shades or Metallic gel polishes hit the market we are right on it.
Bringing in new colors for our customers is our way of keeping their needs satisfied and their nail colors ever changing.
As Thao says, if you came in every 2 weeks for 23 years then you’ll have tried every color we have.
Do you need help taking off your gel polish at home? Don’t want to go to the salon just to take off that polish? We have a solution.
Things you need:
Cotton balls the size of your nail(s)
100% pure acetone (not nail polish remover!)
Optional: A spoon
Now, now, pure acetone is not that bottle of nail polish remover you’ve got in your bathroom cabinet. You’ll most likely find pure acetone in your husband’s garage. If not you can check target or Home Depot.
Step 1: Put a piece of cotton ball, shaped to your nail, over the gel polish wished to be removed.
Step 2: Put 3-4 drops of 100% acetone onto each cotton strip (enough to soak the area).
Step 3: Cover the area with tin foil.
Step 4: Repeat with all the gel polished nails you would like to remove.
Step 5: Let nails sit for 10 minutes. Watch some Tv or somethin’.
Step 6: Remove the foil and cotton strip and use a spoon or your nail to peel off the gel.
The Groundhog didn’t see his shadow! You know what that means? That means that Spring is just around the corner; it is time to get festive with your nails. Time for 3D flowers, free style, and whatever floats your boat. Just have fun!
Soak-off gel polish is pretty hot right now, but it can get more hot with mood changing colors. Mood Gel Polish is temperature activated, so if you go from hot to cold, or vise versa, the color(s) on your nails will change.
Unless you’re a shark, mood gel polishes will give that ombre look. Your nail bases are usually warmer than the tip of your nails, therefore it will remain one color and your tips will change to other color. It will be fun to see it changing when you wash your hands in water with different temperatures too. It will continue to go back and forth until your next manicure. Pretty cool stuff!
