We all love a good Boise manicure, and most start out the same way. However, some people like to keep it simple, while others opt for something more creative. That’s why it’s important to learn about all the different types of manicures to help you decide which one suits you best. After all, your nails say a lot about who you are. Whether you want the latest standout design or a simple nude polish, it’s really up to you!
Popular Types of Boise Manicures
If you’ve never received a professional Boise manicure, you might want to start out with a basic shape, and polish. During a basic manicure, your nail technician at unDONE Salon will tame your cuticles, and ask what kind of nails and length you prefer. Options include square, oval, squoval, or the popular stiletto shape.
Once the shape of your nails has been defined, your hands will be moisturized with a basic massage before a base coat is applied. After that, a polish of your choice will be applied followed by a top coat. Once your nails have been polished, your hands will be placed under a nail dryer to complete the drying process.
The ever-classic French manicure is a go-to style for anyone wanting a classic, classy, neutral nail. During this Boise manicure treatment, a clear, pale pink or beige polish of your choice will be applied over the entire nail with white polish along the tip. The end result will provide you with healthy, vibrant nails perfect for all occasions.
If you want a long-lasting Boise manicure without the commitment of having acrylic nails, a gel manicure is a good option. All the steps of a basic manicure are taken, except the gel polish requires curing under a special UV light. Once cured, gel polish will last much longer than normal nail polish and is less prone to chipping. Quick, bullet-proof and glossy, a gel manicure can last up to two weeks.
A Shellac manicure is a long lasting nail polish that is cured with a UV light. Like a gel manicure, Shellac nails can last up to two weeks or longer without chipping or breaking. However, your natural nails will continue to grow underneath which will require needed maintenance appointments. While removal requires soaking your nails in acetone, the biggest difference between a Shellac manicure and a gel manicure is that Shellac nails are less damaging and take about ⅓ of the time to remove.
