Frequently Answered Questions

What is a manicure?

A manicure is a beauty treatment that involves the use of specialized tools, creams, waxes, and massage techniques to keep your nails and hands healthy and looking good. The word manicure comes from the word manucure, meaning care of the hands. It was derived from the Latin words manus, for hand, and cura, for care.

Is manicure good for nails?

Manicure is a nail care routine that can help you keep your nails healthy and strong.

The healthiest option for your nails is a basic manicure and polish with no harsh chemicals. Natural ingredients like beeswax, oils, and essential oils can help keep your nails healthy and strong. Organic nail polish can prevent infections in the hands. However, please be aware that even organic and natural ingredients can cause individual allergic reactions.

What manicure lasts the longest?

A good gel manicure can last for 3 weeks or more if applied correctly. On the other hand, gel polish may not last even two weeks if nails have oily nail beds or are prone to nail chipping. To ensure that your gel manicure lasts as long as possible, it is important to properly prepare your nails before the application and follow proper aftercare instructions.

Can manicure be done on short nails?

Yes, absolutely! If you have short or natural nails, you can still get a variety of beautiful manicures. There's no excuse to miss out on the pleasure! You can find nail designs on short nails in my gallery.

When should you not get your nails done?

Hygienic manicure and gel polish coating should be done only on healthy nails and in the absence of allergies to the components of the coating.

If the nails are thin, brittle, exfoliate, and with an uneven surface, high-quality manicure and gel polish will only improve the look of your nails. Modern high-quality materials will help nails always look perfect.

Can i get manicure while pregnant?

Manicures are generally considered safe during pregnancy by most experts. However, it is always best to consult with your doctor first, especially if you have any concerns or underlying medical conditions. Additionally, you should go to a salon with high safety standards to ensure that you and your baby are safe.

What manicure is best for nail biters?

Acrylic and gel nails are ideal for serial nail biters who have exhausted all other nail treatments. When applied, it hardens and is difficult to bite off. However, it is important to remember that artificial nails can be damaging to your natural nails if not applied and removed properly.

How to remove gel polish?

There are numerous brands of gel polishes on the market, which differ in their ingredients and their technique of application and removal.

Each manufacturer has its own characteristics and secrets. Therefore, I do not recommend removing gel polish yourself to avoid damage to your nails. Please do not saw, peel, or peel off in layers.

If you regularly wear gel polish, you probably know how long your nails are in perfect condition, and when the polish starts to chip off. Schedule a visit to the master in time to keep your nails consistently perfect.

Why can nails peel off after removing gel polish?

Sometimes nails can exfoliate after removing gel polish, but this is not due to wearing gel polish.

If the coating is worn for 3 weeks and more, the nails could dry out, curl, exfoliate, and break. The coating should be changed at least once every 2.5-3 weeks. It takes time and special care to put your nails in order. Plan your visit to

How often should I get a manicure?

It's recommended to get a manicure every two to three weeks, depending on how quickly your nails grow and how well the polish holds up. However, if you're short on time or budget, you can get a basic manicure once a month to maintain healthy nails.

What should I do to prepare for my manicure appointment?

To prepare for your manicure appointment, it's best to arrive with clean nails and no polish on them. You should also avoid using hand creams or oils before your appointment, as they can make it more difficult for the polish to adhere properly. Additionally, it's a good idea to wear comfortable clothing that won't get in the way of the treatment.

Can I bring a friend or family member with me to my appointment?

It's best to check with me in advance as I work in a home studio and may not have space for additional guests.

The best manicure and pedicure I've ever had! Olya is a great master who always listens what I want and make it even better. The accuracy is just exceptional, I haven't found anything similar in Thunder Bay. Manicure holds for three weeks easily and I am redoing it just because my nails are growing like crazy. I've done pedicure only once a month ago and it's still in a perfect shape! Of course all instruments are sterilized:) I highly recommend to try this place. You will be pleasantly surprised.

I love the service and the quality of manicure and pedicure! ❤️

Olya is very talented! She is efficient and very detail oriented and makes sure that everything is perfect and you are happy with her work. She is also lovely to talk to, and I look forward to seeing her for appointments :)
