You know what sucks? If you want to get your nails done and you go to a salon and they’re like “oh, we don’t offer that.” You’re like “you’re kidding me – you do manicures and pedicures and you don’t offer that?” It’s totally ridiculous. That’s why I created the Nail Goals app.
Nail Goals is a mobile app that lets you pick the manicure and pedicure that works for your nail goals. No more being limited by what the salon offers! You pick what you want, and then book it. It’s just like Uber for manis and pedis. And really, if Uber can exist, Nail Goals can exist too.
We started with just a couple of salons, but now we have over 1,000 in the New York area signed up with us. And we just launched in LA last week, so we’re spreading nationally! We’re hoping to be in every major city by the end of 2016.
I think people are realizing that they don’t have to accept mediocre nails anymore – they can design their own look
I’ve been getting gel nails for a long time now and have tried just about every gel brand out there. If you’re anything like me you want to know what the differences are between different brands and which one is best for you. You may not have the same goals as I do but hopefully this post will help you think about what you want so that you can choose the best manicure/pedicure for your nail goals.
I’m going to break down each brand by its pros and cons, so that you can decide if it might be right for you. Here we go!
What Are My Goals For My Nails?
Before I started getting gel nails, I had been getting acrylic nails on and off for years. I loved how strong they were and how they looked when they were first applied (which was usually two weeks later). But they were so much work to maintain, and eventually I got tired of all the upkeep. I was constantly worrying about them breaking or chipping while at work or out with friends. So when I discovered that there was such thing as gel nails, I decided to give it a try.
My goal with my nails has always been to get them looking good quickly with minimal effort, so
If you’re the type to go for a weekly or monthly manicure or pedicure, you may think that when it comes to getting your nails done, one treatment is as good as the next. But what if we told you that there are actually several different types of manicures and pedicures and they’re not all created equal?
According to celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, there are four different types of manis and pedis. “A classic manicure and pedicure is a simple clean-up around the edges of the fingers, cuticle care and a polish change with a buff shine,” says Lippmann, who has worked with everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Beyonce. “You can then add on treatments such as a paraffin dip, a massage, hot towel wraps or aromatherapy oils. All of these things really elevate your experience at the nail salon.”
And let’s be honest: If you’re going to spend 30 minutes (and possibly some money) in a nail salon chair, you want to make sure you get the most out of it — especially when it comes to those long summer days when you want your nails to look their best
Are you the kind of person who constantly has a manicure and pedicure? If so, you know that the types of manicures and pedicures can vary. Maybe you prefer your nails painted pink, or perhaps you like a French manicure with white tips.
The thing about having a manicure and pedicure is that there are so many options to choose from. From gel to powder manicures, there are ways to get your nails looking exactly how you want them.
But if you’re new to getting regular manicures and pedicures, it can be overwhelming figuring out where to start. What manicure should I get? What do the different types mean? Is one better than another?
Don’t worry, we’ve got answers! We’re breaking down each type of nail treatment so that you can make the right choice for your next visit to the salon.
Are your nails a mess? Are you thinking about getting a manicure and pedicure but are not sure where to start? I am here to help.
Here are some of the most popular nail types: square, oval, coffin and stiletto. These shapes come in different lengths as well. It’s important to get the right shape for your hand and fingers. Let’s say you have short fingers and want them to look longer. A square or oval nail might be the best choice for that. If you have long fingers and want them to look shorter, a coffin or stiletto nail might be the best option.
Next, let’s talk colors. There are hundreds of colors to choose from! You can go with a neutral color like pink or beige, or go bold with red, blue or black nails. You can even mix colors! If you’re going for a natural look, try an accent nail (my favorite). For this style, one nail is typically painted with a different color than the others. This is great because you still get to have fun with color without looking over-the-top crazy!
Finally we get to the best part: designs! From glitter tips to animal print, there are so many options when it comes
I’m a nail girl through and through.
I love manicures, pedicures, acrylics, gel nails, you name it.
As someone who is always trying to grow out my nails and keep them looking nice, I know how frustrating it can be if you’re not sure what kind of manicure or pedicure you should get.
You have no idea what to ask for so you just sit there silently as the nail artist does whatever they want to your poor little nails.
It’s like, “Can I just get some clear polish? Why are you doing all this stuff to my fingers?”
So I decided to put together a mini-guide on some of the most common types of manicures and pedicures that exist out there in the world. Hopefully this guide helps shed some light on all your nail options!
The first step to any manicure or pedicure is choosing the right nail length. There are many factors that can influence which length is best for you. Length will be determined by your lifestyle, nail health, and what style you’re going for. For example, short nails are great for anyone who works with their hands, athletes, or anyone who wants a low maintenance look. Long nails are great for anyone who enjoys nail art and more glamourous (or “extra”) looks.
If you’re unsure of what length is best for you, speak with your technician about your options. They can help you decide what length will be most comfortable and will fit your lifestyle best.
