We take every care in the salon to ensure that your new nails will last but it's important that you look after them between appointments too.
Massage cuticle oil and hand moisturiser in every day. This will nourish the root of the natural nail allowing it to produce stronger, more flexible and non-flaky natural nails & keep the product on them from going brittle. You can purchase NAF! Cuticle Oils in the salon or from our online shop)
Nails are jewels not tools! Gel & acrylic are great for strengthening your nails but they will not make them indestructible. Take as much care as you would with your natural nails, and beware when it comes to ring pulls and car doors!
Your acrylic nails will continue to polymerise for 24 hours and will only be fully set after this time period, please be gentle with them and avoid soaking them in water or any strenuous activity.
Do not soak hands in water for long periods of time. This will cause lifting & take care around extreme heat or naked flames as nail extensions may melt.
We advise you leave no longer than 2-3 weeks between appointments, nails will become weaker as the product grows out and will start to lift and break after this time due to wear & tear and incorrect structure. Do not miss your regular maintenance appointments to ensure your nails stay looking at their best.
If any adverse reaction occurs: rash, redness, inflammation of any kind around the nails please contact your GP immediately.
Do not pick or peel product from your nails as this will remove the upper layer of your natural nails and cause damage, which can sometime be painful and leave them very thin. Avoid home repairs or removals - you could cause a lot more damage than you realise. Book in with one of our nail technicians to keep your natural nails in good shape.
If lifting can be seen please contact us as water and dirt can get under it and cause an infection.
Dyes/tints in food, beauty & hair products cause discolouration. Wear gloves or clean nails after use and be careful when using suntan oils/repellents as some formulations can cause damage to gel polish
Avoid drying chemicals like alcohol or bleach in beauty & cleaning products. Use protective gloves for housework, gardening DIY etc as household chemicals will strip natural nails and skin of natural oils, thus, affecting it's look and condition.
Regular nail polish can be applied over the gel polish if you wish to change the colour temporarily, and can be removed with non-acetone nail polish remover without affecting the gel underneath. Always use a base coat to avoid yellowing.
7 day fix policy: we will fix any damage that we deem to be a result of our application free of charge. After 7 days there will be a small fee of £2 per gel polish/overlay and £4 per extension. Please contact reception asap if you need a fix appointment.
& NO-SHOW FEES
Lateness, Cancellations and No-Shows have a huge impact on the running of our salon. Our diary is tight and an appointment running over by 15 minutes or someone not turning up creates a knock-on affect to our productivity, morale and client experience. We have a strict policy in place to protect our business, team and customers and communication is key so we also adhere to our terms.
We cannot guarantee the service that has been booked to anyone who is over 10 minutes late and, in some instances, may not be able to honour the appointment at all, although we will try our best to fit you in. Please call us as soon as you know you will be late so we can do our very best to accommodate you.

FLU Season Policy
As you’re all aware, flu season is still upon us and we want to make sure we’re taking every precaution we can to ensure our clients and staff stay safe & healthy during their time in the salon.
All of our clients/staff’s hands are sanitised with alcohol before each appointment, however we do have lil’ hand santisers throughout the salon for everyone to use. We invite all clients to make use of our gorgeous hand soaps in the bathroom before your appointment & our girls will do the same 💘
With the recent outbreak of COVID-19, we’d also like to ask all clients that have been in contact with someone who has travelled to highly affected areas/ have recently travelled to these areas yourself or been in self-isolation & feel unwell, to please consider rescheduling your appointment as soon you can & our Front of House team will do their very best to make sure we can accommodate you on another date.
Thank you so much for your understanding on this policy.
With the recent update on COVID-19, we too have made a lil’ update to our policy to ensure we’re taking the best precautions for our staff & clients.
From today, if any of our girls feel unwell, we will be sending them home to self-isolate for 7 days & cancelling all appointments in their column. If your appointment is cancelled, it will not be rescheduled until we are certain we won’t have to reschedule you again. Instead we’ll be popping all cancelled clients on a waiting list & re-booking when we are 100% sure we can get you in.
With that being said, at the moment all of our staff are healthy & happy to continue providing you all with the best possible service we can. We’re doing everything we can to keep the salon fully sanitised (as it always is) & doing our best to ensure anyone showing cold – like symptoms isn’t coming in to the salon until they’re fully better.
We know this isn’t an easy time for anyone but we’re staying positive and will continue to follow the guidelines set out by health professionals and will continue to update our friends, followers and fabulous clients the best we can.
We’re all in this together NAFIA & we hope that by continuing as we are just now that we can provide you with a safe space to get away from the mania, if only for a little bit.
Sending love, health & happiness,
