HOLY CHIC x FAQs
WHY DO YOU OFFER WATERLESS SERVICES?
Your nails swell in water which can cause polish to chip and peel, and cause your nails to be susceptible to splitting or breaking. Waterless also reduces the risk of water-borne bacteria and infections. We strive to be as eco-friendly as possible, and going waterless means we are doing our part to conserve a valuable resource. Did you know that a typical salon uses 15 gallons of water per pedicure and almost 50,000 gallons per year? We are doing away with that waste.
SO IF I'M NOT SOAKING, HOW ARE MY HANDS AND FEET CLEANED?
Your health and safety is of utmost concern to us so we begin all services by spraying our client's hands and feet with a refreshing essential oil cleansing spray. This is followed by a warm towel wrap. Our nail specialist also wash their hands before every service.
HOW DO YOU DISINFECT YOUR TOOLS?
We take cleanliness to the extreme and we don't just sanitize, we sterilize! All metal tools are cleaned, disinfected and then processed in an autoclave between each service. Many salons use chemicals or UV light boxes to disinfect their tools, which is perfectly legal, but not totally effective at killing all bacteria and viruses. In an effort to ensure the highest caliber of safety for our clients, we use a high temperature steam and pressure autoclave which is the only tool capable of killing 100% of all infective organisms. Post-service, all files, buffers and porous tools are disposed of as these are strictly single-use. We take pride in the fact that our shop excels in hygiene protocols and we'd love to give you a tour of our prep-station when you visit us.

GEL REMOVAL PROCESS
We strive for healthy nail maintenance that is why we do not soak hands in acetone when removing gel. Doing so will cause weak dried out nails. We use a steam off machine to gently remove gel polish and buff hands clean. This service if complementary for our repeat gel polish clients.
NO ACYLICS, NO FUMES.
When you walk through our doors you will immediately notice no harsh, overpowering smells. We do not offer acrylic nails nor do we offer a removal service for them. We do however offer a healthy alternative with our gel sculpting extensions. Please consult with one of your specialist for more information.
