About Us

Who We Are
  We are not your ordinary nail salon! At Soho Beauty & Nail Boutique, we want you to feel relaxed while being pampered. Instead of being surrounded by white dull walls, room filled with odour and dust, rushed in-and-out service, we have created a warm, welcome and calming atmosphere for you to indulge in yourself for an hour or two. We don’t rush our service; we take our time to ensure you receive the best quality of work and we will answer all of your nail or skin related questions including our procedure, products we use, after-care and also give you a tour of our salon if you are not in a hurry! We want you to enjoy your visit simply because you deserve it!

  To us, the salon experience should be fun, exciting, refreshing and relaxing. That is our motto and we try our best to make your every visit unforgettable and rewarding! We are not here to offer competing jaw-dropping prices with a mediocre job just to cover the costs. We are here to do nails right! All of our staff are licensed perfectionists and we will take our time to make sure every set of nails is meeting your expectations!

  Enough about the confusion of being charged for the UV gel extension price but actually getting an acrylic set only with a UV gel top coat! We don’t cut corners and we don’t pressure you into the services that you don’t need. We have passion and pride to do things right! We are dedicated to be clean, consistent and professional. We put your safety and satisfaction as our first priority by providing a calming and thoroughly cleaned environment to our clients. All of our products used in services are carefully tested and chosen by us. Through the whole service, from hand sanitizing spray to cuticle oils, these are all attentively selected that we believe can deliver the best results.

  Our goal is to maintain and to recover the natural health of your nails, that’s why we don’t use any aggressive and abrasive procedures when we touch your natural nails. Electronic drills are only used in artificial enhancement services for us to level and balance the gel products. For gel polish (shellac) and Bio gel removal, we only hand file down thin coat of the top coat and soak them off in professional gel remover. Our gentle removal method will result in getting your healthy natural nails back over time.

Our Salon

Our Passion
  We are proud to announce that our nail salon is one of the authorized stores to carry Nelly De Vuyst® in Kitsilano Vancouver. Nelly De Vuyst® is a premium skin care brand with a longstanding reputation as one of the most effective, anti-aging and corrective skincare line on the market that is compatible with all medical aesthetic practices.

  We specialize in Bio Sculpture Gel, the first company in its class to have undergone a stringent independent Clinical Research Trial and received a Five Star Safety Rating.

  Soho Beauty & Nail Boutique provides a wide range of nail care services from natural nail maintenance (manicure, pedicure) to UV gel nail enhancements. Acrylic nail products emit an unpleasant chemical smell when applying the products to sculpture nails. We ensure that our customers can enjoy their visit at our nail salon in a pleasant and absolute Odour-Free Environment by not offering acrylic nail services. The same effects of Acrylic nails are reproduced by the new industry standards of odour-free Gel nail products.

  All our staff are properly trained professionals with accredited certificate/licence. Our team will periodically take advanced courses from senior educators or product educators to keep us up-to-date so we always know the latest and greatest products and techniques!

Our Hygiene Practice

How We Care
  It is the most important commitment for us as a responsible beauty salon to do everything we can to avoid cross-contamination such as preventing any fungal, skin and/or nail infections during the course of our services. We use the most competent methods to control the spreading of any potential infectious organisms:

     All Metal Instruments used in any services (nail clippers, cuticle pushers, cuticle nippers, foot files, etc.) is guaranteed to be thoroughly sanitized after each service by hospital grade disinfectants which contains AHP (Accelerate Hydrogen Peroxide) to eliminate bacteria, germs and viruses such as Hepatitis B.

     All Non-Metal Tools (nail files, nail buffers, wood sticks, etc.) used in any service will be disposed of after each service. You are more than welcome to take them home!

     Our Stainless Steel Foot Files for pedicures are efficiently disinfected after each use.

  You will enjoy your relaxing foot bath with your pedicure in our Metal Foot Bowl which can be easily cleaned and disinfected after each service. For optimal sanitization reasons, we don’t use whirlpool foot baths because debris contains bacteria and germs that can be easily stuck in the gaps between the jets or filters. It can be a dangerous source for cross- contamination without proper cleaning and disinfecting procedures.

  If you have any concerns or questions, please feel free to ask our staff. We are more than happy to explain all the methods being used to ensure Proper Procedures for Sanitization are observed.

   About Gel Extension

Our Technique
Gel_extension vancouver
  We use the nail form method to sculpture your gel extension instead of glued-on plastic tips. Most salons choose to glue tips on natural nails and brush on gel overlay. This method is easier and more time-efficient, however, the biggest problem with tip application is fake tips usually have more curve than average natural nail beds. The tips are trying to pull your natural nails to match its curve but your nails do not want to go.

Have you ever seen anyone’s nails like this?
    Onycholysis , this is an example of when the tip won the battle. The stress between the tip and natural nail is creating a slow, painful separation of the nail plate from the nail bed underneath. That is why people get sore fingers after extension enhancement and furthermore, the separate space provides a perfect warm and moist environment for bacteria/fungi to grow in and cause nail fungus and various nail infections.

  On the other hand, nail form requires more technique and knowledge to be placed perfectly. It is slipped under the free edge of the natural nail and extends the free edge to the desired length. This method will not create stress on the natural nail bed. The enhancement molds itself to fit the natural nail shape and results in a safer, more comfortable and natural feeling enhancement. Some people might think tips are stronger than sculpted gel extension, but that is a myth. UV gel products are much stronger than the material used to make the tips, and by gluing the tips on, they are actually creating a stress point that can crack and break easier than the UV gel products would on its own.

  By carefully applying the nail forms to fit your own natural nail shape and the extension sculpted to perfection, we will need more time to do so and we promise that we will make your gel extension safer and look absolutely stunning!
