Girls living in megalopolises know firsthand what a fast paced life is. I want to catch everything and why is it only 24 hours a day ?! Sometimes, torn between family matters and work, a woman simply does not have time for herself to be loved. But you want to look perfect! Having taken care of the weak half of humanity, London specialists together with their colleagues from Russia presented a new service - express manicure. You probably noticed in the large shopping centers such mobile nail salons in miniature. Express manicure is an opportunity to give your hands care for a few minutes and then go shopping.
Differences between express and salon procedures
As in the usual beauty salon, mobile salons offer the same range of services: you will get a manicure, cover your nails with varnish and even apply a drawing or perform a more complex design. Masters can offer you trimmed and unedged manicure and other salon hand care procedures. However, the distinctions of express nail art from the usual service for women in the beauty salon, though not very significant, but there are:
- Time. The main focus of mobile salons is on the speed of the procedure. On average, traditional express manicure is performed in 20 minutes, with the application of the coating - another plus 10 minutes.
- Means and materials. In the express procedure, the master uses special “quick” means to soften the cuticle, gel for nail growth, and antiseptic lotions for instant absorption.
- Cost The price of the service will be slightly lower than in a regular beauty salon. The average cost of a classic express nail art is about 300 rubles, while the same service in an ordinary salon will cost from 450 rubles.
- Pre-entry. Unlike ordinary beauty salons, which are quite difficult to get without an appointment, in mobile studios you will be provided with services as soon as you decide to pamper your hands in the interval between shopping.
Advantages of express manicure
Mobile salon express manicure can be found not only in shopping centers. Today, this service can be used at airports, business centers, cinemas and other public places with high traffic. Despite the concept of fast nail art, mobile studios provide high-quality services, and the masters working in them are high-class specialists. This service is most often used by women who do not have enough time to go to beauty salons, and they don’t get their nails in order at home.
How to create a traditional express manicure
