Anxiety, bad habit – no matter what the reason is: nail biting is one of the hardest beauty bad habits to break. But there is light at the end of the tunnel: nail extensions can change your life. Here’s all you need to know about the manicure that stops nail biting, for good.

I want to get my nails done but I’m so embarrassed because I bite them a lot – is there something you can do for me? A question we get asked quite often. And we have some good news for nail-biters.

Individually sculpted gel nail extensions are the answer. They make your nails inaccessible to bite. They are beautiful, super comfortable to wear, can be designed to a length that you  feel most comfortable with, and while they are on, your nails have time to recover.

Apparently, it takes 21 days to break a bad habit. If you get an infill every 2 weeks or so, it takes only 2 appointments with your manicurist to break the vicious circle in a month’s time.

Usually though, our clients fall in love with their extensions, and keep them on much longer. So, if you want to break that nail biting habit, come and talk to our nail technicians Melania and Maho, they’ll be happy to advise and find the right length and solution for you.

“I’m absolutely in love with my Japanese nails extensions! I needed to find someone to have my extensions again since the previous professional I used to go has moved, I was a lil scared of how others work but Maho is amazing. She is attentive accurate and has a great eyes for details. I love the shape and colour ombré was exactly what I was looking for. Maho is also very friendly and made sure I was always happy with results. Definitely I’m her client from now. I’m very happy, thank you Maho.”
