Enamel: Nail polishes with a higher level of film-forms are generally distinguished as enamels.

Epidermis: This is the upper most layer of skin. It is attached to the bottom of the nail plate and is ridged with tiny ‘rails’ that run in the same direction as the dermis grooves. The effect is much like a train riding on its tracks as it moves forward.

Ethyl Methacrylate (EMA):This product is widely used in monomers as part of the structure used to create artificial nail enhancements. For removal from the nail plate EMA can be soaked off safely using pure acetone.

Etching: This is an obsolete process where the surface shine of the natural nails are removed using a coarse grit file during preparation for a nail enhancement service. Advancement in nail care technology has made it unnecessary to continue the use of this destructive and often hurtful method to ensure adhesion.

Nail Fill-ins: The addition of acrylic to the new growth area of the nails, this procedure should take place every two to three weeks.What used to be called “Fills.” The arch of the nail must also be re-positioned in order to restore strength at the stress point where most cracks appear, and the free edge is reshaped and excess length adjusted in order to retain the proper balance to the overall structural integrity of the extension. 

Nail Forms: Paper with adhesive-backs that are placed under the free-edge or at the fingers’ ends to extend acrylic past the finger tip.

French Nail Manicure: A type of nail polishing procedure, whereby the natural free-edge of the nail is painted white, and the nail bed is painted pink, beige, or clear, to mimic a healthy looking natural nail.

Gel Nails: Gel polish is a product that uses clear and colored gels for nail enhancements instead of regular polish. It is part of the acrylate and methacrylate family and is a milder form of acrylic. It is applied similarly to traditional nail polish but each layer is cured under a UV light. It dries within 2 minutes under the UV light, a glossier and tougher finish, and last longer compared to regular polish (between two to three weeks). It is removed by soaking 10-15 minutes in pure acetone.

Keratin for Nails: This chemical substance makes up the nail plate. Keratin is a protein. Proteins are the building blocks of life.

Manicure: Standard service performed which includes care & massage of Hands & trimming, shaping & polishing fingernails.

Nail Tip (Tips): An artificial nail made of plastic, nylon or acetate that is adhered to the natural nail to add length.

Pedicure: Standard service performed by nail technicians, which includes care & massage of Feet & trimming, shaping & polishing toenails.

Pink & Whites Nails (P&W’s): The application of a white free-edge, and a pink (or clear or beige) nail bed, using polish, colored acrylic or gel products.

Tip Nail Overlay: Any enhancement procedure that is done over plastic tips applied to the natural nails, rather than sculpted onto forms.

Nail Art Design: Nail art is a creative way to paint, decorate, enhance, and embellish the nails. It is a type of artwork that can be done on fingernails and toenails, usually after manicures or pedicures.
