5 Different Types Of Manicures To Know, So You Can Make The Right Choice | Magnolia Nails & Spa | Trending nail salon 29501

A manicure used to mean one thing: basic polish applied to filed nails and finished with a shiny top coat. In today's world, there are many more options to choose from, and it has become tempting to forgo the old-school, quick-to-chip manicure for something that lasts longer. | Trending nail salon 29501


Before your next visit to the nail salon, educate yourself on the many types of manicures, as well as how long they normally last and how much they cost, in order to select the ideal style for you, no matter what shape, length, or color you want.

Here's a quick guide to the five most common types of manicures at the nail salon.

Classic  Manicure

This is the original manicure, made using the same exact bottles available at the drugstore. Simply choose a degree of pampering—from basic to deluxe—and have your cuticles trimmed, nails filed, and polish applied.

If you don't have time to get a gel manicure washed off at the salon every two or three weeks, a basic manicure is your best choice. It's also a good option if you're in a hurry or usually impatient.


Basic Manicure $25

This manicure includes nails trim, cuticle removal, shaping, massage, buff, and color polish of your choice.

Gel Polish Manicure $35
Gel Polish Manicure (reapplication) $40

Hypo-allergenic polish results in stronger longer nails and does not require nail enhancement. Leave nail smooth, and shiny, and gently soak off.

French $5 +
Design $5 & Up

Gel Manicure 

Consider it an upgraded version of a standard manicure in which a UV light is used to cure and solidify liquid lacquer, which allows a gel manicure to last up to three times longer than conventional polish. There is one catch: you must return to the salon to get it removed. Attempting to pick it off will result in bare nails.

Who it's for: If you love your trademark OPI or Essie color but want it to stay longer than the weekend, a gel manicure is for you. Most salons now have your favorite nail colors in both conventional and gel paint.

Shellac Manicure 

People frequently mix up gel with shellac, although the two are not the same. CND, a nail manufacturer that created 14-day-wear gel paint, originated the term "shellac." It's considered a hybrid of long-wear gel and conventional polish, and it's typically healthier for your nail health. It, like gel, must be cured under a UV light.

Who it's for: This is an excellent alternative for someone who like gel manicures but has thinner nails, since the formula and typically-easier removal will benefit them.

Nail Enhancements

Acrylic is the most durable form of enhancement. Recommended for those with naturally weak, brittle nails. It is very popular and the hardest form of enhancement due to its durability and low maintenance, high gloss, and strong natural look. It is non-yellowing and will not harm the natural nail bed.

Reapplication of SNS/Dipping System $55

A dipping powder process has no odor and does not use a primer. SNS is many thrivers and helps your nails grow out stronger and healthier by adding vitamins and calcium.

Soak Off $20

Dip Powder Manicure 

Each nail color for this sort of manicure comes in the shape of a coloured powder, which your nails are dipped into after a clear liquid solution is applied. It is often stronger and lasts longer than gel. It's also known as "SNS," and it takes a trip to the salon to have the polish properly removed. It is frequently touted as a healthier alternative to acrylic with comparable results.

Who it's for: This is ideal for folks on the run who require a tough manicure. You'll notice right away that it feels more durable than other polishes, which is why it lasts longer.


Acrylic Nail Art

This may bring back memories of the lengthy, square-tipped French manicure style of the early 2000s, but acrylic manicures remain popular despite the rise of gel and dip powder. Acrylic manicures may be customized to appear as you like, making them desirable for long-lasting color in a range of shapes and styles. Typically, a combination of powder and liquid formulations are put over your natural nail and artificial tips.

Who is it for: If you've always wanted a certain nail form but have been let down by your nails never growing long enough, this one is for you.

Acrylics are a popular alternative for people who desire longer nails (or are prone to chewing their nails), since they provide the impression of naturally longer nails while also offering a thick protective coating to safeguard you from biting your nails.
