We are qualified nail technicians and have been for many years. All of the staff are experienced in the industry. There should be no discomfort or pain during the procedure.

As a busy salon we would highly recommend to book in advance especially coming up to the holiday season. We do allow walk-ins but can not always guarantee how long the waiting time will be.

What is the difference between acrylic powder and gel powder?

We offer two different powders in our salon. Acrylic powder which is more affordable with a hint of pink and Gel powder which is clear and transparent. The durability of gel is better.

Can I use gel polish on top of acrylic powder and gel powder?

Yes, gel polish acts like a polish but last much longer.

Technical Questions

What should I do if I have a fungal infection?

We recommend you go and see the GP straight away where they will treat it with fungal creams and lotions. Your local pharmacy can offer these products off the shelf. However, these products can be purchased from our salon.

Can I come to Divine to get infills when I got my full set from another salon?

We would need to see the condition of the set. The staff would normally advise on the day but normally it is possible to infill.

I am diabetic can I have a pedicure?

Before the booking please let the staff know of any health issues so we can deal with it accordingly but normally it is possible to have this treatment done with extra care.

I am pregnant can I have my nails and feet done?

We are able to perform the nails normally and the pedicure without the massage.

Will my natural nails continue to grow under fake nails?

Your nails will continue to grow as normal.

General Questions

What new colours do you have?

Our new colour range all depends on the season and upcoming trends within the nail industry. We will keep our clients updated on new releases and trends regularly in the salon and on social media.

Do we use the electric nail drill?

We perform nail enhancements using the electric file as this makes our end result perfect and smooth. We prefer not to use the drill on gel polish to maximise the natural nail strength.

How long do nails take?

Average nail time is 1 hour but this all depends on the service/treatment you are having done.

Difference between gel polish and normal nail varnish?

Gel polish is a hard wearing varnish that dries instantly using our LED lamp, it also lasts around 2 – 4 weeks depending on the aftercare and general day to day duties. Gel can not be removed using normal nail varnish remover from the local shop it needs to be removed with acetone which only salons should have. Incorrect removal of gel can lead to damaged weak nails.

Advantages of having Gel Polish are:

  1. Dries instantly
  2. More shiny
  3. Longer lasting
  4. Non- chip

Normal nail varnish can be applied and takes longer to dry. We finish of our set by apply top coat then dried under an air drying fan.

Do we do wedding nails?

Yes, we do weddings nails but we do advise you to book in advance as we can not guarantee an appointment at your desired time and date.

Is there an age restriction?

The age limit is 16 and over without parental consent. If under 16 years we will need parent consent to carry out the service, we may ask you to accompany your child so that there is a clear understanding of price and what the client desires.

How long should the hair be for waxing?

The ideal length for waxing is 1cm but half of this is also is ok. We recommend every 3 to 6 weeks for waxing depending on the area.

 

What should i do before a spray tan?

We would recommend all waxing and exfoliation to be done prior to the appointment. We advise to dress in loose clothing so it is easily slipped on after the tan.

 

I have filled my 8th stamp on my loyalty card, what happens next?

We have a loyalty scheme to show our appreciation for loyal clients that spend over £10 per session. Once all stamps are filled we give back a FREE treatment in nails or beauty. Terms and conditions apply and there is a limit but mainly full sets and infills will be free (without gel polish or any take offs), pedicures, facials and waxing.

 

Ive lost my loyalty card? is there anything that can be done?

Unfortunately we are unable to trace the appointments and it is the clients responsibility to keep the card safe. We will NOT backdate any stamps that have been lost of forgotten to be stamped. We offer to keep the loyalty card in our filling box to prevent this happening again to loyal clients.

General Questions

What is Microblading?

Phibrows is a technique of semi-permanent drawing of the eyebrows with hyper-realistic result.

Microblading uses very small needles that are then pigmented under the skin, giving a hair stroke effect. PhiBrow strokes are always drawn in the direction of the natural hair strokes to achieve the hyper-realistic look. Microblading is good for people who have over plucked over the years, want to add more volume for a fuller look, people who have experienced hair loss and just for people that want to achieve a more defined look. PhiBrows always try to create the appearance of much more natural brows than other looks out there.

We do not wax or take off ANY existing eyebrows. We will tidy the area but do not remove the whole eyebrow.

Does Microblading hurt?

We take into consideration that everyone has a different pain threshold. We will try to make the procedure as pain free as possible. Some clients do find the procedure uncomfortable and others don’t find any discomfort. Pain relief is used during the procedure and is topped up regularly to keep you comfortable.
