Thairapy Salon & Blow Dry Bar, Riverside’S Gel & Acrylic Nail Experts

Many women in Riverside know that beautifully groomed nails are the key to a polished, professional and elegant look. For some people, growing your own natural nails to a long lepngth is difficult and you may just not have the genes for it. At Thairapy Salon & Blow Dry Bar, we specialize in the application of gel and acrylic nail enhancements. No need to worry any longer about chipping, sore and unsightly nails. Gel and acrylic nails are made to last and help you protect your natural nails while growing long, shiny, healthy looking nails that are the envy of the office.

Many of our Riverside clients get confused when having to choose between gel and acrylic nail enhancements. To find out which one would best suit your lifestyle, please consult this list that we have compiled for your convenience. The following list outlines some pros and cons of each nail type.

It is first helpful to note that some people may be allergic to the acrylic nail resin. Acrylic nail resin is known to have a very strong odor. Not to worry, since all of our salons are equipped with state-of-the-art ventilation units. For those Riverside clients, we always suggest gel as it is free of any harsh odors. Another pro to gel nails is that its application does not require the client to file down their natural nail. For many people, this is an important factor in deciding which nail type is right for them.

Acrylic nail extensions tend to be very firm and rigid. Therefore, they are preferable for the Riverside client who does not use their hands for manual labour often. However, those clients who use a computer and keyboard to type may benefit from the durability and firmness of acrylic nails.

Even though both gel and acrylic nails are slightly pricier than our regular manicure, they are worthwhile in that they make your manicure last. Gel and acrylic nails last up to three times longer than a normal manicure would. With proper care, acrylic and gel nails both have very long-lasting power, however gel nails are more forgiving and are designed to remain shiny and like new for up to three weeks.

It is always important to factor in your lifestyle to decide which nail type is right for you. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff will always be happy to answer all of your questions and provide you with all of the necessary information you need to make an informed decision.
