Paraffin Wax for Hands and Feet (Respondent from Top Care Nails) We (Top Care Nails) are offering paraffin wax baths which included in our pedicure and manicure services. Why we offer this treatment? Here is the reason. Clients’ hands or feet are typically dipped into a tub of warm paraffin wax. The heat will retain for several minutes. As the wax hardens, the paraffin's natural emollient softens skin and the heat opens pores. When the cooled wax is pulled away from the skin, it also removes dead skin cells, leaving skin smoother. Paraffin wax treatments are also beneficial to dry, cracked hands and feet. Paraffin is an excellent moisturizer because it forms a light waterproof coating over your skin that helps it retain the oils produced by your body. This "waterproofing" makes paraffin treatments great for soothing and healing dry, cracked skin -- particularly winter-worn hands and feet -- because it offers protection from external elements. There are more benefits from the paraffin treatment which we do not tell here yet. Why Not to Worry When Receiving This Kind of Treatment ? There are a few factors that prevent paraffin from ¬being a good conduit for transferring bacteria and other pathogens. One is that because paraffin is an oil-based wax and does not contain water, it doesn’t provide an acceptable breeding ground for bacteria, fungi, and viruses to grow. Another is that during the act of dipping a hand into paraffin, the wax completely encapsulates whatever comes in contact with it, thus preventing it from touching any of the liquid wax around it. This can be seen when the hand or foot is removed from the wax. The wax covering prevents the skin from coming into contact with the rest of the wax in the bath. Moreover, we have been following these “must to do things” strictly since we started the business: 1/ Have two separate baths for dipping: one for hand and one for feet. 2/ Always keep the baths clean 3/ although some manufacturers recommend cleaning the unit every month, while others say to do so after every 25 uses. We usually clean the unit every week (in the winter) or as often as needed (in the summer). 4/Always clean hands and feet thoroughly with soap and water 5/ For clients who need an individual use of paraffin treatment, we do use the “ladle” technique; which is a direct result of the general public’s heightened awareness of salon sanitation. Here is the picture of how we use the “ladle” technique: a/ Paraffin is scooped into a plastic liner for individual use. b/ Put clients’ hands or feet in the bag. While the clients’ hands are in the bag spread the wax around their hands or feet to ensure full coverage. •We hope this will clear all the misunderstandings.

Saturday, 11 April 2015 1145 hrs. In process of relcoating from Watkinsville GA (near Athens) to Compton CA. Left GA 31 March 2015. Got last fill-in 30 Mach 2015 from T A Nails, Athens GA; my nails usually last one month...these didn't last a solid week... James, Anthony, what happened. Bwing foreign in Albuquerque NM, I found Walmart Superstore on Carlisle Blvd...sure there was a Regal Nail Shop... Upon arrival, I was sharply refused bc my nails were too long. Imagine that? When I inquired about any other nail shops in the area, I was quickly referred to Impression Nails ... baffled to learn that a "Nail" shop dealt with lengths, I called Impression Nails, spoke with Pete who immediately welcomed me. Although the wait was longer than expected, I was grateful they could accommodate. While getting my fill-in the conversation included my episode with Regal Nails on Carlisle at Wal-Mart. Guess what? Not only will you chance 'too long nails at Regal but tadl dah ... they can even be too short???:Go figure...Regal Nails on Carlisle in Albuquerque NM has changed my life...now I will definitely check with nail shops regarding length when I seek a new shop in California. Excuse me ... what do they do??? Anyway, my nails were completed at Impression Nails across the street from Wal-Mart (Regal Nails). Thanks, Regal Nails for the referral. I appreciate your honesty... but, please tell me ... how long is 'too long? & how short is too short? Do you actually do NAILS or are you a mirage? Thank you to the owners of Impression Nails. It was a bit of a wait, but definitely worth it. I was informed that I was their first "LONG NAILS'" Customer ever. Seems I make history where ever I go. If you ever visit Albuquerque NM and need a nail shop, please start at Impressions ... you won't regret!!! p.s. Tell them Donna (aka Lady Long Nails) referred you! IMPRESSION NAILS 2839 Carlisle Blvd NE, Suite 170 Albuquerque NM 87110 check them out... Don't waste time dealing w Regal Nails while they decide on lengths (i.e. 'too long' - 'too short' STOP AT IMPRESSIONS, get the job that's the Best... I am Donna, from Watkinsville GA relocating to Compton CA... just passing by...if ever I come this way again... IT'S 'IMPRESSION NAILS' FOR ME!!!
I have always been searching different nail places and I didn't find one that was up to my standards of how I wanted my nails done. Until one day at work my friend said lets go to vivis, so we want on our lunch and let me tell you I was so impressed and ever since then I will NOT go anywhere else. I know vivi and her husband on a personal level now and everyone else who works in there and it is the most amazing experience when I go in. They always k or exactly who I am and what I want and how I want them and its amazing. Yes it's pricey but to feel like your treated like a high rolling customer is the best! And I believe that anyone who does go in there is treated like royalty, so I'm sorry but for those of you who say you have had a bad experience well it must not have been at vivis because she is amazing and her kids work there too. She's one of the best in town so sorry about your luck!
After ten years my nail tech moved to Texas. I was heart broken and never thought I would find another locale that provides excellent service, quality products, savvy staff, an overall all in one salon. I stopped treating myself because the outcome of each visit every where I went was a complete disappointment and a waste of my time and money. My cousin kept telling me to go see anyone at Top Care Nails so I did. I'm a Virgo and can be a little picky at times. Fortunately, the staff are experienced and able to comply with my demands. They do as I ask with a smile. They know I'm color blind and are always happy to help me match and come up with stylish designs. I'm once again a completely satisfied customer. Thanks Michelle!
OMG. I must insist that you visit and indulge in the pedicure. I got mine with Peppermint and it was fantastic! They are attentive, clean and thorough. Usually, when sitting in the massage chairs, you can look up and see the dust hanging in to light fixtures. Not here. Clean is the order of business. Tools out if the autoclave, massage chairs that really massage and everyone speaks understandable English. I'm going back as soon as I can afford it again. Considering that this would have easily cost $150 in Santa Fe, $40 was majorly do-able. Go and take your friends, family, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, children and whomever else. Excellent.
I came here via recommendation of a coworker of mine, who's nails always look amazing! She constantly received positive comments about them. I knew this was the place when I sent a guest of the hotel, an international supermodel I might add, and she absolutely loved the place. So, now every time she comes to town she chooses Impression. Everyone is really amazing, and very, very kind. Cindy is amazing, and I couldn't imagine anyone else attempting the things that she does. I can bring/describe ANYthing, and she makes it happen. They are very reasonably priced, but that's not to say I wouldn't pay whatever they charged. They are that good!
My mom and I love this nail salon! Fast, friendly service, up to date clean equipment, awesome menu when you sit for a pedi that has great selection w/ prices.. Would of been a relaxing experience if it weren't for the crazy girl who came in after us screaming and demanding a redo on her pedi, her feet looked fine to me - no need to be so rude and condescending to the workers- especially with your grandmother sitting right there!! No respect these days! She'll probably write a bad review (and go nuts when she sees this one too :D), IGNORE IT!!! Best pedi I've gotten in Albuquerque! My mom* and I will definitely be back!!
hi my names Jennifer. I have been going to nails proce lawn for the last 2 years. They are awesome they do excellent nails I've had my eyebrows done they do great job on that. I've had my feet done they always taking care of you. the people there are good people there sweet. I have never had any fungus underneath my nails or any fungus under my toes they are take care of you there sterile. I would recommend it to any of my friends or my family. I give them a 5 star rating if I could give them or I would. Thank you so much for the job good job that you guys do.
Saigon Beauty Salon has been a saviour for me. I won't go to the chain salons and thus often skipped haircuts. However, Saigon has been a great solution. I get a very professional haircut and they take their time. I get good results at a price I can afford. I was sent by a friend who could easily spend more, but is satisfied with the haircuts she gets at Saigon. We have both had good luck with eyebrow waxing. I have never had nails done at Saigon, but I have another friend who goes to Saigon Beauty and her nails look good.
This place opens at 9:00 am, but beware--If you show up before 9:30 these lady's will not contain their irritability. "Are you having a nice quiet morning?" I asked at 9:15. "Not anymore." She said. This kind of thing has happened to me several times here. Most recently one of them chose to finish playing a game on her iPad for a while as I waited at the counter + dirty looks from the other. Why don't you guys just change your hours if you require 30 minutes of quiet?
