Bad nails fixed by Yana at The Studio by MikaDoesMakeup

After - fixed nails by Yana

Getting a bad nail job at another nail salon can easily be fixed at The Studio by MikaDoesMakeup. In this particular case, our new client came to us with a botched gel nail job that was done earlier in the day… She wanted us to take them off for her or make them better. Yana did exactly that… She worked with what she had without having to remove them, filing and reshaping the nails so they weren’t so bulbous and working extra carefully as her nails and cuticles were very sensitive. Check out the Before and After pictures! Call us to fix your bad nail job or any nail job at The Studio by MikaDoesMakeup – 604.764.(Mika)6452, located at 1054 Hornby Street in downtown Vancouver.

Faye doing hair while MikaDoesMakeup

In a hurry? Why not have 2 talented artists work on you at the same time before a big night out (instead of 1)… Hairstyling and Makeup at the same time is easier and faster than ever… Just sit tight while we glamify you from head to… face! On a recent team-up, Faye Smith worked on hair while MikaDoesMakeup did the makeup (naturally) on a busy client, cutting the time in half! And cutting time doesn’t mean a skimp up on the finished product… You will still end up looking just as beautiful as you walked in, but definitely more enhanced and ready for that blind date or big night out on the town! Book with us for a Double Team service at The Studio by MikaDoesMakeup, located at 1054 Hornby Street in downtown, Vancouver. Call us at 604.764.Mika(6452)
