Maria Harvey's Nail Studio use ibd, Missu, Perfect Nails from Beautyworld and CND's Brisa.
My core products are mostly 'hard' gels. Unlike their distant cousin, the soft gel (shellac or gel polish), 'hard' gels are a closer cousin to acrylic and have the same strength and hardness of a acrylic but a natural flexibility not found in acrylics. Softer gels are available as a core product and used if better suited for a particular client. Better explained here in one of my blog posts.
Permanent French, Natural, Custom made Coloured Gel or Gel Polish. Tips applied for length & shape & gel constructed to tip. Complete nail done with gel ~ NOT white/coloured tips & no acrylic base. 1h 30min ~ $90.00
Natural strong coatings of gel over your own nails to help keep them looking healthy and strong. French, Colour or Natural 1h. ~ $70.00
This is where we file away a partial amount of the last gel application and replace with fresh new gel. At this point a new colour or different style can be reapplied so boredom of nails is never an issue! This also stops the nails from lifting, breaking and also keeps the look of the gel fresh and clean, no discolouration as with acrylic as it ages. Recommended ever 2-3 weeks. 1h ~ $65.00 BUFF & POLISH ♥
Each nail is gently buffed and tidied and a sealer applied to keep nails fresh between infills. 30 min ~ $40 (Only available with French or natural.)
RESTORATION & RENOVATION FILL ♥
Sometimes clients come to us after being away for a while or from another salon and some extensive work needs to be performed. In this case extra time and materials are required thus separating this from our standard infill price. 60 min ~ from $70.00 CHANGING TO GEL? ♥
If you currently have acrylic and wish to change to gel it requires buffing back the old acrylic to about .5mm and replacing with gel. This saves the damage that can be caused by complete removal and the cost of a new set. Depending on level of difficulty removing old acrylic can take about 1 hour 30 min. and be priced from ~ $70.00 depending on time frame. 90 Min.
Wanting to take a break. Having your gels professionally removed is a far better, and kinder, option for your nails.
Extensions are cut, nails filed and shaped for their new normal, and 90% of product removed from natural nail. Either hand filed or drilled.
A 'repair' gel is then applied in a light coat just to keep nails structured whilst going through the 'grow off' phase.
Infills then are not required and 'repair gel' grows out.
Continued manicures are advised.
From 1 hour - $70.

GEL TOE PEDICURE ♥
