Situated on the 100 feet road of Chattarpur, Polish the Nail Boutique is a nail salon which provides services such as nail extensions, eye lash extensions, pedicures, manicures and facials. Never having done anything to my nails before, I was pretty thrilled when Karuna (one of the founders) invited me over for a review. As soon as I entered the salon, I could't help but fall head over heels for the white and grey interiors.There were two booths for nails and two for pedicures while a whole section was dedicated to facials. Right opposite the nails booth, I spotted a cabinet full of nail polishes and one of creams. The nail polishes cabinet looked nothing less than heaven even to somebody like me who rarely paints her nails.


I had my doubts about nail extensions but as soon as I saw the designs and prints that I could get done on my nails, those doubts exited as quickly as they entered. 
After consulting Karuna about the designs, I decided to go with a black french manicure. The technician then started with the process by first removing the cuticles of my nails. As I'm a nail biter, I hardly had nails on my fingers to begin with. To fix this, my technician first put extensions on all of my fingers. Then he cut the length as per my convenience. Next came the filing and shaping of these extensions. I wanted the semi oval shape so my technician kept the length to medium. Believe it or not dear readers but getting the extensions fit only took one and a half hour. 

Nobody loves nail art more than my sister so she had to be taken along to Polish. She decided to go with a multi color glitter nail art which would go with all of her outfits. For both her and my nails, UV gel was used. 
After extensions were fit and shaped, my technician used the gel and asked me to insert my hand inside the UV lamp. Now this can be risky because there is a chance that your nails might burn inside the lamp so you have to be really careful while getting extensions. This went on till three times after which finally the gel nail polish was put. Then the technician again put the gel and asked me to put my hand inside the lamp. After 3 long hours, my nails were finally done. 

Although the process is time consuming and it can be difficult for clumsy women like me to stay still, it is worth the wait. You won't be able to stop staring at your nails once the work is done. In my sister's words, my hands now look girly and eyeful. The results were bang on for both me and my sister and we loved the fact that the technicians were able to make any kind of design we wanted. Polish can also provide digital prints, one stroke designs, 3D and 4D designs on the nails. The nails will remain the same for 4-6 weeks after which new nails will start to grow so what one can do is get the design changed after a month. The staff is super sweet and will make sure that you leave the salon only after getting exactly what you want. I had a wonderful experience with Polish and I sure am going to pay it a monthly visit from now on.
