I got a Royal Shellacking today. Then received the Minx Treatment. Well, my fingers and toes did. Never had either one before, and truth be told, now I’m completely besotted with both of them. Ahh, NStyle Nail Lounge: what have you done to me? Polished me up and made my paws sparkle, all within a blessed hour in your super stylish nail spa…
After years of standard nail polishing, the nail technicians at NStyle Nail Lounge, Mall of the Emirates, insisted they give me a Power Polish. And me being the Girl Power Gal that I am, could not resist. I’m sold the instant the ladies describe what my tired, scrappy nails will be recieving: an innovative chip-free, extended-wear nail color which glides on easily, dries to perfection, wears beautifully, stays with me – intact – for a fortnight, then removes with no damage. What is it I ask? Its Shellac.
My service begins with a thorough hand and foot wash, scrub and total mani/pedicure to prime those nails just crying out for some rejuvination. Once towel-dried, toes and fingers are applied with Shellac Base Coat – one thin layer which cures in 10 seconds and provides the foundation for the Shellac system about to come.
Next is my choice of Shellac Color Coat, twice applied, and cured between each coating, followed by the Shellac Top Coat which provides the durable final layer and seals the deal with a mirror-like finish. A small portable UV Lamp is used to cure the layers immediately and create the scratch-resistant, high-shine finish I will be receiving. Finally, each nail is wiped with alcohol to remove the sticky film. Viola! Perfection in Nails.
Not only are my eyes thrilled, but so is my nose, for Shellac does not produce any toxic odor, and does no damage to nails. It is free from formaldehyde, DBP (dibutyl phthalate) and toluene, but manages to last over a fortnight with durable shine that resists chips, scratches, and smudges. I am in love!
But the NStyle Nail Lounge girls go one further with the cherry-on-top: extending my very own fashion sense to my fingertips. I’ve received the Silver Lightnening Minx treatment…and I’m never going back!
