What is the process of OPI Gel French on Toes treatment?
Our specialists begin by preparing your toes, cleaning and shaping the nails. A base coat is applied, followed by a pink or nude base shade of your choice. The French pedicure ‘smile line’ is created using an ultra-bright white gel. Finally, we finish with an OPI gel top coat. Each coat is cured under a UV light ensuring a durable finish.
What is the end result of this treatment?
The OPI Gel French on Toes treatment produces a high-gloss French pedicure that retains its lustre for weeks. Your toes will be ready to dazzle in any footwear. The treatment offers the longevity our clients love, protecting against chips and smudges from daily wear for weeks.
How long does the high-gloss finish last?
Our OPI Gel French on Toes treatment's high-gloss finish lasts for weeks, maintaining its lustre. You won't have to worry about chips or smudges as this treatment is designed to endure daily routine and wear.
What is the ‘smile line’ in a French pedicure?
The ‘smile line’ is a distinctive feature of a French pedicure. It's created using an ultra-bright white gel on the tips of your toes in the shape of a natural nail growth curve, enhancing the nail's elegance.
Nude or pink base, are these my only options for the French On Toes?
Yes, traditionally, a French pedicure uses a pink or nude base shade. This contrasts brilliantly with the white tips, creating a classic and timeless appeal. However, we are happy to discuss any other preferences you might have.
What does the UV light process do?
The UV light cures each gel layer, bonding it to your real nail. This creates a long-lasting, chip-resistant polish. The UV light is essential in achieving a superior, very hard-wearing finish.
Does the UV light have any harmful effects?
The UV light used in gel nail treatments is safe and our specialists ensure your skin is minimally exposed during your treatment. Still, we recommend using a broad spectrum sunblock on your hands and feet if you frequently get gel nails.
Is the OPI Gel French on Toes treatment suitable for all types of nails?
Yes, the OPI Gel French on Toes treatment is suitable for most nail types. However, if you have very thin, brittle, or damaged nails, we recommend speaking with one of our technicians first to determine the best course of action.
Why choose OPI Gel for a French pedicure?
OPI is a world-renowned brand used by professionals for its superior quality and durability. When paired with the timeless French pedicure style, it offers a finish that is both long-lasting and incredibly glossy, ideal for weeks of wear.
How do I maintain my nails after the OPI Gel French on Toes treatment?
We recommend applying a cuticle oil daily to keep your nails hydrated. Avoid picking or peeling the gel as this may damage your nails. When the gel begins to grow out, we advise returning to the salon for a professional removal to maintain nail health.
