The Design Process
Choose one color plus gel nail designs of your choice for three fingers.
To start off, anmi will look at your nails and do any necessary filing and cuticle care so that she has a nice smooth base to start with. With buffing techniques and cuticle pushback and clean up she can even give short nails an elongated look.
For every customer, anmi uses a fresh set of buffers and filers that are disinfected and stored in anti-bacterial packs so that a high level of hygiene and sanitation can be guaranteed.
Doing nail design can often be damaging to your nails, but anmi uses precise techniques that she gathered in her time in New York and has perfected over time. These methods minimize any damage to your nails. She achieves this by not cutting the nails too short and not using products that are too adhesive.

In this nail package option, you get the choice of 1 color plus gel nail designs of your choice for 3 fingers. With over 200 colors to choose from it isn’t easy! One thing that makes her salon unique is the speedy application process. She uses a LED nail lamp that can quickly dry nails in just 5 seconds! Not only that, but she is able to draw very detailed designs very quickly. So if you are in a rush, don’t worry!
By applying two base coats and two top coats, the nail designs are very well protected and last about one month. For the base coat, one normal coat plus one extra coat is used. So even if you want to go visit a hot spring in Japan, you don’t have to worry about your nails!
You can choose your nail design from anmi‘s wide assortment of design options, or you can bring in an image of the design you want. Our model Amy wanted a simple, matte color with an intricate design that looks classy but can be easily worn to work.
With a very fine brush, anmi quickly paints the design with professional prowess. Seeing her work is like watching a live art performance.
