Maria Harvey's Nail Studio use Light Elegance, IBD and Missu.
My base gels are '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 acrylic but a natural flexibility not found in acrylics. Better explained here in one of my blog posts.
Permanent French, Natural or Custom made Coloured Gel. Tips applied for length & shape & gel constructed to tip. Complete nail done with gel ~ NOT white/coloured tips & no acrylic base. 1h 30min ~ $80.00
Natural strong coatings of hard gel over your own nails to help keep them looking healthy and strong. French, Colour or Natural 1h. ~ $70.00 GEL POLISH APPLICATION ❤ I don't use "Shellac" - the actual CND brand of gel polishes - but have a vast range of gel polishes available. A base gel polish is applied and unlike many other techs, a gel strengthener is applied between the base and your colour for extra strength. This helps to keep the usual chipping at bay. Fresh Application to natural nails. 45 min. ~ $50 Removal of old colour and new application. 1 hour - $60. INFILLS ♥
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. 1.5h ~ from $60.00 BUFF & POLISH ♥
Each nail is gently buffed and tidied and a sealer applied to keep nails fresh between infills. 30 min ~ $30 (Not available with coloured gel.)
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. 90 min ~ $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 ~ $60.00 depending on time frame. 90 Min.

GEL TOE PEDICURE ♥
Have a gorgeous french or coloured gel to match your gel nails. Nails are shaped and cuticles shown the love most of us girls deny them.

A visit to a podiatrist prior to a gel application is always the safest option as nail techs are not licensed for this sort of service….)
