Q - Is there a cancellation charge if I cancel my appointment late or don't turn up to my appointment?
A - I ask for your courtesy and to let me know if you cant make an appointment. I do understand forgetfulness and busy lives.
24 hours notice would be great, it gives me a chance to offer a treatment to another person.
After that a 50% charge is applicable.
Q - Do I need to bring open toe shoes with me when having my toes painted?
A - Yes, it is highly advisable that you wear open toe shoes to your appointment to have your toes painted, and to keep your toes free from shoes/slippers/boots for at least 2 hours to let your polish dry thoroughly. If you are having gel polish on your toes though, you can wear shoes straight after.
Q - How should I look after my fingers once they have been painted?
A - Leave your painted nails free to dry for at least 2 hours after your treatment. In this time, avoid wearing gloves or pressing them against anything as they will be tacky underneath. If you have had gel polish applied though, your nails are dry and ready for anything straight away!

Q - How do I prepare for a lash lift?
A - Book in for a patch test at least 48 hours before your treatment
- Come to your appointment wearing no mascara or eye make-up, please do not remove with an oily eye make-up remover just before your appointment
- If you usually wear waterproof mascara, remove the night before your appointment and DO NOT apply AT ALL on the day of your treatment, even if you're booked in for an evening appointment
- If you wear contact lenses, you will need to remove them for your appointment so please remember to bring something to put them in and bring your glasses with you for after your appointment
Q - How do I look after my lashes after my lash lift?
A - It is important that you do not get your eyelashes wet for 48 hours after your treatment. This is because the products are still doing their job during this time so you do not want to de-activate them
- Avoid getting them wet in the shower, baths, sauna's, steam rooms, rain during those 48 hours. Even avoid the steam produced from doing the ironing and from opening the oven door
- Avoid sleeping with your face in your pillow for 48 hours as this can distort the lashes while the products are still active. If this does happen, use a clean, dry mascara wand to straighten the lashes out again
- Avoid wearing mascara for 48 hours
- Use a conditioning serum every morning and night on your lashes to keep them nice and healthy. Try storing the serum with your toothbrush and apply before or after cleaning your teeth each morning and night
- Enjoy your perfect, natural lashes and all the compliments you will receive about them for the next 6 weeks!
