Gel Manicure Pedicure

2 things we absolutely hate:  People who are rude in the morning and chipping our nails. Few things annoy us as much as when we spend an hour in the salon, only to end up smudging our manicure as we walk out the door.

Great news!!! Jessica gel manicure pedicure that doesn't chip and last for at least 2 weeks. After trying them out, you'll never go back for a traditional manicure and pedicure ever again!

What is it? 

To put it simply, a coat of colour "gel" (that looks like nail polish) is applied to the nails. After each coat, you put your hands or feet under a LED light to cure (dry) the gel.

How are gel manicure pedicure applied?

The process start out like a normal manicure pedicure: nails are shaped with a file, and cuticles are pushed back (you should never cut the cuticles!). The next step is to apply a base coat, followed by two coats of either gel, and then a top coat to finish. Where the process differs from a regular manicure pedicure, however, is that in between each coat of polish, you dry your hands under a LED light for about 30 seconds to a minute.

Here's the real kicker:

After the last blast of LED light, YOUR NAILS ARE DRY!

No waiting under a fan and no chance of smudging —it's a dream come true.

How long does it last?

In general, Jessica manicure pedicure last up around 2 weeks to 3 weeks and longer on the feet.  With regular polish, the top coat begins to dull after a few days, but with Jessica gel, they look as shiny on day 14 as they did on day 1. They may begin to peel after 2 to 3 weeks, but the real issue is that your own nails grow out, leaving an unpolished band near the cuticle.

 How are they removed?

They are removed by wrapping the nail in acetone, either with special nail wraps or with a cotton ball soaked in acetone. Do not soak your entire fingertip in a bowl of acetone, as it will dry out your hands and can irritate the skin.

How are they different? 

We choose to offer Jessica gel manicure pedicure because it takes about a third of the time to soak off and don’t damage to the nail if you don’t peel them off. We offer free removal of the gel if you have a new set gel manicure or pedicure with us.
