Gel Polish / Nails
The unique pure nails formula of Gel Polish uses the very latest industry techniques to benefit both nail techs and clients. Gel polish provides rich colour with iridescent shine for up to 14 days of chip resistant nails which can easily be removed using gentle buffing and acetone removers.
Gel nails are a slightly thicker layer of colour than nail varnish so will last slightly longer and is much more durable, without that nasty brittle effect that normal varnish has.
It is very important to look after your hands and nails just as you would with varnish. Wear rubber gloves while washing up. Use a cuticle oil or hand cream every evening before bed to keep the cuticle area soft and supple. This will help Carla, the nail tech, when she is applying for the first time, or taking off and re-applying the Gel Polish. Please don't use the gels as tools to scrub at pots and pans or decorating, as this will be sure to shorten the life of them.
One of the benefits I love is the flexibility. As I said, normal varnish is very brittle and cracks and will allow the nail layers to peel as well. Gel Polish is much more resistant (with the right love and care) and bends with the nail if you bang or bend it, rather than crack and chip.
Clients usually book every 2 weeks for infills, so they can get the cuticle edges neat again, and change the colour. Marie has a beautiful colour change polish, as well as sparkly and just a plain high gloss finish. 63 colours to choose from in fact!
Marie tends to work Wednesdays from 9.30am to 2.30pm. She does one late night and one Saturday a fortnight. Please do look online at the booking system to see which those are.
She has been qualified more years than she would like me to write, and is fully insured, so you are in good hands when you book to see her.
Marie also does Apres Gel Extensions. Apres Gel-X Tips are specially formulated gel tips to work with Aprés Extend Gel to ensure long-lasting 3+ weeks adhesion to natural nail. Application takes less time then any other system. They are the world's first soak off extension system. Apres Gel X tips are long lasting and does not damage to the natural nail.
