o’2 Nails Nepal & Beauty Studio brings you a glorious selection of choices when it comes to your manicure. It can be like sitting in front of a menu in your favorite restaurant, selecting what fabulous combination you’re going to have today. But it can also be a little confusing! There are so many different types of nail manicures that you may struggle to narrow down your choice.
In reality, it’s quite easy to choose between the different types of manicure and pedicure when you consider the time you’ve got, the level of pampering you want, your budget, and whether you’re having your nails done every day or for a special occasion.
It’s down to personal choice, and how you would like them to look and feel. You should always be able to benefit from the skill of a professional nail technician.
A basic or standard manicure is the traditional manicure that you’re probably familiar with. Here your nails are trimmed, shaped, and buffed. Cuticle oil is applied and cuticles are managed too. You’ll usually get to enjoy a wonderfully relaxing hand massage. In the end, standard nail polish is applied.
A basic manicure is an excellent affordable and relatively speedy pamper session that will leave you with glossy vibrant nails. The polish is easy to remove at home.
With a basic manicure, expect chips to the polish quite quickly. The polish can also become a little dull over time.
The French manicure was very popular in the early noughties and it’s making a comeback for its straightforward simplicity. This classic manicure leaves you with a sheer tone finished off with vibrant white tips.

This classic manicure leaves you with a sheer tone finished off with vibrant white tips. If you choose traditional polish, it will be prone to chipping. Your final look is reliant on your natural nail shape and strength.
Shellac is the original brand of gel nail polish. It’s applied in the same way as a polish but is tougher and more flexible. You still get to enjoy all of the shaping and nail care elements of a basic manicure, but instead of traditional polish, Shellac gel is used. It is quickly cured under a UV lamp.
Gel nail polish is tough. It won’t chip like traditional polish and it won’t lose its shine as quickly, if at all. You can really expect them to look as good after a couple of weeks as they did on the day you had them done. There is a huge choice of colors available and they are really intense.
Gel manicures are slightly more expensive than a basic manicures, but offer excellent value. Removing gel or Shellac can be a little more complex, to prevent damaging the nail. It’s recommended you have them removed by a professional. There is slightly more risk of damage to your nails with gel compared to polish.
A nail technician mixes a liquid (monomer) and a powder (polymer) and works to create a solid nail overlay, or enhancement that sits on top of your nail. They can be in traditional nail shapes, but they can also be in all sorts of shapes depending on your technician’s skill and creativity. As well as benefiting from the standard elements of a manicure, the acrylic nails are applied and polished, often using nail art. Acrylic nails also come ready-made. They are what most people are thinking of when talking about false nails.
With acrylic nails, you can have a fabulous nail shape, no matter the shape of your real nails. They can add length and they also provide an excellent canvas for wonderful works of art for skilled creative nail technicians.
Acrylic nails have a tendency to pop off, through everyday use. The new nail growth around the bottom of the acrylic can also be quite noticeable after a few weeks. They can also be quite expensive. You should have gaps between applications, more than with any other type of manicure.
