Nail Types

What is your nail condition?

Like there are different types of hair and skin, so there are also different nail types that require individual treatments matched to the nail condition. JESSICA manicures stand out form the rest as we start with a ‘nail analysis’ before anything else as this provides us with valuable information to customize a manicure service like no other.

By providing correct treatment basecoats you will always be able to prescribe,treat, and maintain your clients nails in tip top shape and you will never have to resort to harsh acrylics ever again!
