services + products
What services does PROSE Nails offer?
We are a full-service nail salon with a Lash + Wax Beauty Bar at multiple locations across the US. We have services for everyone in the family, offering signature manicure and pedicure services as well as kiddie manis + pedis.
What is a gel manicure?
Gel polish manicures is an alternative to regular nail polish manicures. Whereas nail polish requires 30 minutes of air-drying time, gel polish contains a special polymer that must be “cured” under an LED or UV light – allowing it to harden during the curing cycle and become instantly dry which gives chip-free results.
Can men get their nails done at PROSE Nails?
Absolutely! At PROSE Nails the whole family is welcome. We’ve moved away from the traditional women-only nail salon setting and created services where the whole family can get pampered and groomed together.
What if I don’t like my nails?
We never want you to leave PROSE Nails unhappy. We have the PROSE Promise that ensures if you’re not happy with your nails, your next manicure service is on us.
What are SNS nails?
SNS, also known as “dip powder manicure”, is a brand of dip powder that we carry. SNS is different from your standard gel manicure because it doesn’t need a light to “cure” it. Dip powder manis can last up to 2-3 weeks. For removal, it will have to be soaked off with acetone for 15-20 minutes.
Do you do artificial nails? Can someone fix my broken nail/give me fill?
At PROSE Nails, we do not do artificial nails with acrylic or add on tips to our manicure services. Unfortunately, we are not be able to fix a broken artificial nail or provide you with fill-ins. After your nails are removed and you want to bring out the best in your natural nails, book your appointment with us.
How long do manicures and pedicures take?
Plan on 30 minutes for a manicure and 30-60 minutes for a pedicure. Drying time is extra but can be as slow or as quickly as you need. We advise letting your polish fully dry before you leave.
Are your products safe?
Our products are better than safe, they are clean + healthy. We only source and use vegan and cruelty free ingredients. We avoid the use of harsh chemicals and toxins to keep your hands and feet beautiful and our environment smelling fresh.
Can I get designs on my nails?
Our Artists are ready to help you express yourself creatively. If you have an inspiration photo, please share with your Artist and they will try to recreate your vision.
Can children get their nails done at PROSE Nails?
Yes, we want to start the kiddies off early with healthy habits. We have Just For Kids manicure + pedicure services where they can choose multiple colors at a time while getting the ultimate pamper time from our Artists.
What are PROSE Treats?
How do I care for my nails at home?
At home care is just as important as our service. Refrain from damaging habits like biting your nails and picking at your cuticles. Use gloves when cleaning or washing dishes, to avoid your nails being exposed to water for long. Check out our PROSE at Home section to find which product can help you with your nail health in between appointments.

Can I submit my brand for your PROSE at Home section?
Absolutely! At this time, we are only accepting submissions from wellness, jewelry, beauty, and home brands. If your brand consists of apparel and shoes, food, beverage, or wine and spirits, we cannot accept your submission at this time. We encourage you to check back as we are always expanding.

I am not sure how to go about presales, do you offer support in this area?
Since securing memberships are an essential part of the PROSE Nails business model, we have streamlined support in this area. We work with a full-service marketing agency that handles all of our digital marketing efforts. Although it is not required to work with them, it is highly recommended because they manage the PROSE Nails brand and work with the majority of our local PROSE Nails franchisees to fulfill social media campaigns, email marketing, and presale strategy.
Do you offer support in opening the PROSE Nails salon?
All franchisees and developers are responsible for securing their location and staff. We’ll connect you with our regional director to ensure which areas in the market are available to get started. However, you are responsible for your lease and monthly obligations.
