When it comes to beauty, few things compare to the feeling you get after a new set of acrylic nails are professionally and beautifully applied. Acrylic nail extensions have the power to elevate your look and reflect your vibe, as they are customized to the length, shape, colour and style that you choose. At Ohana Beauty and Wellness, our talented team of nail technicians are passionate about creating exquisite acrylic nail sets that are inspired by your vision.

Acrylic Tips with an application of gel polish includes standard nail and cuticle care (cutting, shaping and buffing) before the tips are individually placed on your natural nail. Every new set of acrylic is like a blank canvas waiting to be shaped and painted! If this is your first time getting Acrylic Nails, resist the urge to go too long, as lengthier nails take time to get used to – the length you choose for your nails should complement your lifestyle, and sometimes extra-long nails are not practical.

Our nail extension treatments also include Acrylic Tips with a glaze or polish finish, as well as Ombre Acrylic Tips for a stunning gradient colour effect completed with gel polish. Ask one of our experienced nail techs for advice if you’re not sure what style or nail extension type is best for you, and check out our Pinterest page for some inspiration, based on previous sets we’ve created for clients!

How to Care for your Acrylic Nails at Home

If you’re cleaning the house with detergents, especially harsh ones that contain bleach, be sure to wear gloves that will prevent the chemicals from messing up your manicure. Even though your acrylic set is durable and resistant to damage, remember “Your Nails are Jewels, not tool”. Treat your Acrylic Nail s gently and avoid any intense DIY projects, which could cause them to chip or break. By moisturising often and adding cuticle oil regularly (especially one that contains Vitamin E), the skin around your nails stays soft and healthy, and your nails stay strong.

The upkeep for your new acrylic set is minimal, while they should last between 6 to 8 weeks – of course, some regrowth can be expected, so we recommend that you book your fill at around 3 to 4 weeks to maintain the look. In accordance with our strict hygiene protocols, all spa nail instruments are sterilized after each use. We use acrylic and polish products by NSI, Maskcara and Young Nails.
