Russian Style Manicures and Pedicures

Nail Polish

La Rouge Hair and Spa is proud to be offering Luxury Russian Style Manicure and Pedicures.

What is a Russian Style Manicure?

The Russian Style Manicure differs from traditional Manicures and regular Gel Manicures in that it does not involve soaking the nail to soften the cuticle, pushing it back, and trimming it. Instead, the Russian Style Manicure utilizes a dry process that employs electric drill bits for filing, cutting, and completely removing the cuticle, resulting in a tidy, seamless appearance.

What is the difference between a Classic and Russian Manicure?

The primary distinguishing feature of a Russian Manicure compared to a Traditional Manicure is the method of cuticle treatment. In a Russian Manicure, the Nail Technician employs an electric filer to access the eponychium, enabling the removal of the cuticle removal, resulting in a flawless and seamless appearance. (At La Rouge Hair and Spa our nail technicians, place great importance on using high-end, organic, and chemical-free products that provide longer-lasting results)

Russian Manicures are known for their durability, longevity, and elegant appearance, which is why many experienced Nail Technicians recommend them. When performed correctly, Russian Manicures can last up to five weeks without requiring a touch-up. This exceptional longevity can be attributed to two factors: 1) the meticulous preparation of the nail before applying polish, and 2) the thorough cleaning of the cuticle, which can be thought of as a type of exfoliation and treatment. In addition to their longevity, Russian Manicures can also improve the health of nails, even if they are brittle or damaged.

When compared to traditional shellac/gel or classic Manicures, Russian Manicures require a higher level of expertise and specialized equipment, necessitating a thorough and detailed approach from the Nail Technician. However, the end result is worth the extra effort, as Russian Manicures and Pedicures can leave your nails with a noticeable shine, promote nail growth, and enhance their overall appearance with a long-lasting, healthy glow.

What is Builder Gel and what is it used for?

At La Rouge Hair and Spa, our skilled Nail Technician utilizes “Builder Gel” to achieve a variety of desired effects such as adding length, thickness, or strength to the nail. Whether applied to natural nails to create a non-chip overlay or used in conjunction with nail tips to produce extensions or enhancements, “Builder Gel” is a versatile and effective option that does not harm natural nails. In fact, it actually provides a layer of strength, making it a popular choice among customers. “Builder Gel” can also be applied as a thin layer for a base and top coat.

What is Paraffin treatment?

Skilled Nail Technician

As part of our comprehensive nail care services, our highly trained Nail Technician offers Paraffin Treatment with every Pedicure. Paraffin Treatment can be added to any Manicure treatment for an additional charge. This form of Heat Therapy is highly beneficial, as it can increase blood flow, relax muscles, and reduce joint stiffness. In addition, “Paraffin Wax” can help minimize muscle spasms and has therapeutic uses. At La Rouge Hair and Spa, we utilize Paraffin as a skin-softening treatment or as a pain relief option for sore joints and muscles. The primary advantages of “Paraffin Wax” are its moisturizing and skin-softening properties, as well as its use of heat therapy.

Paraffin is an effective emollient that can help to soften the skin. When heated, the wax opens up the pores by trapping moisture, leaving the hands feeling softer and smoother. This treatment is not limited to hands, as it can also be used on feet to soothe dry patches, create soft skin, and smooth out calluses.
