How are Gel Nails done?
Your therapist will firstly carry out a consultation with you to discuss your needs and the end results/colour you are looking to achieve. The treatment is done by firstly prepping your nails with dry manicure technique, then two coats of gel polish is applied in thin layers for a natural finish, which cures and hardens under UV light and can last up to a good two weeks.
Is there anything I need to do before my treatment? Pre-care?
Your nails must be a normal length for this treatment. Extremely short nails will be difficult to do, also they will not last very long at all. Please make sure your nails are clean and free from any debris, and decide how you want your nails to look, we will try our best!
