At The Spa Magnolia our philosophy is to merge luxury with organic health and beauty, as a result we do not remove or apply gel/shellac polish in order to maintain a safer environment for both customers and staff. Our manicures and pedicures are provided by licensed estheticians, and we use a medical autoclave to properly sterilize metal implements. One-time use buffers and files are yours to keep following your treatment.

The Spa Magnolia has decided to curtail the “Gel Polish Removal” item on our manicure and pedicure portion of the treatment menu. It has become a challenge for us to remove some of the newer and often unregulated products used in the nail bar market that are very difficult to soak off. Our spa is not equipped with dremels (a sanding like device that mechanically buffs off the gel) as our approach is more holistic and exposing my staff to pure acetone more than needed is not what I want for them. Some of our guests are not even aware they have gel polish on and that it is not easily removed. Here are some tips for you!
Q: How do I know if I have gel polish on my fingers or toes?
A: When you had the polish applied the polish would have to be cured under a UV or LED light rather than drying naturally and is instantly dry to the touch.
Q: How do I remove gel polish?
A: Soak off kits are available at most drugstores now or you may go back to where you had it applied as they will be familiar with the products they are using.
**The Spa Magnolia uses traditional polish for our manicures and pedicures and we are happy to remove regular polish prior to a treatment as it is not time consuming. Our approach is to spend the treatment time taking the very best care for your hands and feet!
