Getting your nails done at the nail salon with satisfactory results makes you happy and fulfilled. But how do you often leave the nail salon with a smile? And aren't quite sure what to say or what went all wrong? The truth is sometimes you go into a nail salon with no idea what you want to be done with your nails. This problem seems simple. This is why talking with your nail technician about your preferences is very important, as they play important roles in achieving your desired nails. To tell your nail tech your preferences, you must first know what you want.

Know What You Want

Knowing what you want sounds easy, but, in reality, we’re not quite sure what to expect most of the time as there are so many nail options, colours and designs that are available. To make your life a little easier, here’re some criteria that you need to consider when planning your visit:

Type of Nail Service

First, you must be clear about what type of service you wish to get done. Understanding the type of service, which steps are included, and how long it takes to complete are keys to getting a seamless experience. Here're some commonservices at our Nail Bars you might be looking to get done: 

  • Gel Nails
  • Acrylic Nails
  • Dipping Nails
  • Manicure 
  • Pedicure

    At some point during your appointment, you’ll definitely get asked about which shape you want for your nails. Here’s our list of the range of nailshapes that can be very handy in your next appointment: shapes 


    Choosing a colour in the nail salon can be overwhelming as there are so many! If you're having trouble deciding, try to look for inspirations on Pinterest orInstagram. You can also try matching your nail colour to the colour of your outfit, glasses, or shoes in order to get a coordinated look!


    Like colours, picking a nail design among thousands of them on social media can be a challenging task. If you’re paralysed by the amount of choices available, you can try matching your nail art to the time of year and upcoming holidays or occasions, personal colour and style preferences. When you’re confident with your choice, make sure to show your nail tech a picture of the nail look to avoid anymisunderstandings. At The Nail Bar, you can even attach a design picture with your online booking upon arrival! This is especially helpful for us to allocate time and the right technician with the right skills, hence providing the best outcomes. 

    Here are some more tips to getting the best nail bar experience.

    Before Your Appointment, Remember To:
    1. Research about nail products andservices before your appointment. This makes conveying your preferences to your nail tech way easier!
    2. If you’re having a hard time knowing what you want, Pinterest and Instagram are great sources for inspirations .
    3. If you have a picture of what you want, bring it with you, show it to your technician, or simply attach the picture with your online booking.
