Nail Art is gaining popularity in this sunny island Singapore.
So imagine my delight when J’s nail’s invited me down for a session of their nail service and to review their nail salon! 🙂
J’s Nail’s Salon is located at 19 Shelford condominium, a little shop right in front of the pool area.
A little waiting area decked out in purple hues.
A wall of nail magazines, nail polishes and gel containers.
How cute are theses nail polishes? ^^
Something about these colours gets the artist in me very excited and happy!
The pedicure area. Cushy red seats.
Some of the current trending designs, i picked the design on the second column, second from the bottom. Opting to replace the neon yellow with blue. 🙂 These designs are done by Vivien / Joann, usually they will take inspiration from magazines and trends and input their own flair to it. So there is really no duplicate and every design is unique. Plus they will also take in your preference and customize a design as per your requests.
And the work begins!
Vivien nail artist and manicurist attended to me, she explains that opting for hard gel would be easier to mould and design the nail art. So I went for the hard gel option, versus the soft gel.
Here’s Vivien using the machine to sand my nails and prep them before applying the gel. And how cute are her minion designed nails?! ^^
After the sanding, comes the gel application,
After each layer of gel applied there would be a short UV light period. As the period if very short, there should be no UV damage to the skin. Since we don’t do this daily as well. But if you’re worried, you can always remember to apply amply sunblock lotion to your hands and fingers before the session. 🙂
Here Vivien uses the nail covers to create a nice smooth gel layer on my fingers. Very cool huh?
After the fingers have all been gel coated, it’s once again sanded. So that the coloured gel can attach onto the gel.
Well, I didn’t have available hands to take photos of her painting the colours on, but check out the final results!
How pretty is this?! ^^ PLUS I love how she photographed my hands to look so pretty here..
A little more about J’s nails:
Established since 2007, J’s Nail started from a home-based nail art salon to become an active renegade force in the nail art industry. What comes with each therapeutic experience is not only the highest-quality nail art service, but also exclusive hours-on-end fun and enjoyment.
Services provided include Gel Manicure, Gel Pedicure, Nail Art, Manicure, Pedicure, Hand Spa and Foot Spa. Each is itself a different abyss to take you to various levels of relaxation.
J’s Nail believes in education, having been rigorously trained from Hong Kong Nail Collections Academy. From time to time, J’s Nail also works closely with the academy to keep the nail art profession up to date, and deliver the latest industry trends and choice to the customer.
Check out the certifications awarded to Joann Tsui, the founder and owner of J’s nails:
A nail design like mine shown above will cost $70 for hard gel service, + $58 for nail design, totalling SGD$128.
These nails will last 3-4 weeks, depending on how fast your nails grow. Usually they would recommend making your next appointment in advance. Also it is advisable to go back to them for removal service as it requires sanding. But no worries, as they will always leave a thin layer of gel covering your nails and will not actual sand your real nails! Thus your nails are kept protected. Vivien kindly explained all these to me because I’m on that’s afraid of thinning and nail breakage.
