Before your next visit to the nail salon, educate yourself on the many types of manicures, as well as how long they typically last and how much they cost, so you can choose the best style for you, regardless of shape, length, or color.

Here's a short rundown of the five most typical nail salon manicures.

Classic  Manicure

This is the original manicure, created with the same exact drugstore bottles. Simply select a level of pampering ranging from basic to deluxe and have your cuticles trimmed, nails filed, and polish applied.

If you don't have time to get your gel manicure cleansed at the salon every two or three weeks, a simple manicure is the best option. It's also an excellent alternative if you're generally impatient or in a hurry.

Gel Manicure 

Consider it an upgraded version of a standard manicure in which a UV light is used to cure and solidify liquid lacquer, which allows a gel manicure to last up to three times longer than conventional polish. There is one catch: you must return to the salon to get it removed. Attempting to pick it off will result in bare nails.

Who it's for: If you love your trademark OPI or Essie color but want it to stay longer than the weekend, a gel manicure is for you. Most salons now have your favorite nail colors in both conventional and gel paint.

Shellac Manicure 

People frequently mix up gel with shellac, although the two are not the same. CND, a nail manufacturer that created 14-day-wear gel paint, originated the term "shellac." It's considered a hybrid of long-wear gel and conventional polish, and it's typically healthier for your nail health. It, like gel, must be cured under a UV light.

Who it's for: This is an excellent alternative for someone who like gel manicures but has thinner nails, since the formula and typically-easier removal will benefit them.

Gel Mani & Pedi

Color gel lacquer is designed specifically for natural nails. An LED light is used to harden the gel, leaving it long-lasting. chip-resistant color. Gel lacquer comes in a variety of colors, including French (+$10).

Dip Powder Manicure 

Each nail color for this sort of manicure comes in the shape of a coloured powder, which your nails are dipped into after a clear liquid solution is applied. It is often stronger and lasts longer than gel. It's also known as "SNS," and it takes a trip to the salon to have the polish properly removed. It is frequently touted as a healthier alternative to acrylic with comparable results.

Who it's for: This is ideal for folks on the run who require a tough manicure. You'll notice right away that it feels more durable than other polishes, which is why it lasts longer.

Acrylic Nail Art

This may bring back memories of the lengthy, square-tipped French manicure style of the early 2000s, but acrylic manicures remain popular despite the rise of gel and dip powder. Acrylic manicures may be customized to appear as you like, making them desirable for long-lasting color in a range of shapes and styles. Typically, a combination of powder and liquid formulations are put over your natural nail and artificial tips.

Who is it for: If you've always wanted a certain nail form but have been let down by your nails never growing long enough, this one is for you.

Acrylics are a popular alternative for people who desire longer nails (or are prone to chewing their nails), since they provide the impression of naturally longer nails while also offering a thick protective coating to safeguard you from biting your nails.


Solar nails offer a natural appearance & durability. Plastic tips are added for length, followed by a layer of solar.
