Gel nail infills is a treatment that is applied to nails that alreadly have a UV gel polish applied to them. About three weeks after (depends on how fast your nail grows) your initial gel nail overlay finish will have a small gap at the base of your nail inbetween your cuticle and your gel application. The infill treatment involves filing and buffing the existing gel down in preparation for another application of UV gel polish in a different colour or the same.
The photograph to the right of this text is of one of my regular customers nails before I performed the gel infill treatment. The application of black UV gel I did three weeks before this photo was taken. You can clearly see a small gap that has formed from her natural nail growth, and this is the part that needs to be 'infilled'. UV gel nail is extremely durable and provides a long lasting finish, as this photo proves!
Contact me to book a gel nail infill treatment either in the comfort of your own home or at my home based salon. Gel nail infill treatments cost £20 for an application for your fingers or toe nails, and take about an hour to complete.
I'm quite fussy with my nails and moving away from where I'd been having my nails done for the last year or so was quite a big deal for me. That said, I'm so glad I found Helen! It's so nice to have a cuppa and a chat and leave with lovely looking nails. They are always done perfectly and even after 3 weeks, they hardly look grown out. It's fun to be adventurous with my nails and every time I go it's great to say 'I was thinking about...' and hear the response 'Let's do it!' :)
