Nail Analysis

NAIL ANALYSIS – How Good Is Your Nail Condition?

Just like there are different types of hair and skin, there are also different nail types.  Each requires an individual treatment matched to the exact condition. JESSICA manicures stand out from the rest as the therapist starts with a NAIL ANALYSIS.  This is done before the manicure starts as it provides valuable information allowing the therapist to customise a manicure service – like no other brand can!

Through the use of the correct treatment base coats, your therapist will always be able to prescribe, treat and maintain your nails in tip top shape.  What’s more, you can even try it out at home by using our unique NAIL ANALYSIS chart.
