Reviews

 

This was my first time trying the nail corner (found it difficult to book an appointment previously-I can see why though!). Such a lovely salon, and huge care taken over my very weak and brittle nails. Laura was excellent in explaining things to me about nail care, and was very intricate doing my nails. I am so happy with the results and will 100% be back, and recommend to everyone! Very professional, friendly and high end quality!

Aftercare

DO’S 

Be especially careful in the first 24 hours after application and avoid intense heat during this period (e.g. saunas, hot bath, or sunbeds).

 

Use cuticle oil daily to keep your nails nourished, stimulate growth and prevent lifting.

 

Always wear rubber gloves when washing up, cleaning or gardening.

Bleach and alcohol based substances react with gel products and softens its structure and can turn the shiny top coat matt.

 

Always wash your hands thoroughly after being in contact with chlorine, insect repellant or sunscreen.

 

Always return to salon for maintenance and removal and follow any advice given to you by your nail technician.

 

DONT’ S

 

Avoid long periods of time in water (e.g. long baths, swimming, washing up).

 

Do not use your nails as tools (e.g. screwdriver) as this could lead to cracking.

 

Never pick or peel the product off as this could damage your natural nail.

 

Never leave longer than 4 weeks between appointments, the nails could crack  

Why we like The Gel Bottle Inc. products so much 

Rubber Base 

Why? Uh, because it’s awesome?

The rubber content in the base allows super strength to be delivered to even the flakiest, thinnest of nails and also allows nail flexibility to be enhanced past the nail bed. 

Usually, when thin nails attempt to grow past the finger tip, they snap off or begin to peel or flake - this can prevent growth and cause lifting and chipping in gel manicures. 

 

With the added flexibility Rubber Base provides, the nail is able to move and bend without snapping or flaking meaning nails grow longer and colors don’t chip. 

 

Put simply, Rubber Base gives strength and saves your nails would usually get chips and lifting within days… Happy Customer? Happy Nail Tech. 

Builder in a Bottle™, BIAB™, and Cover Nude Builders are a range of soak-off gel builders that are ideal for sculpting and tip extensions. It can also use it alone on the natural nail bed to enhance the natural nails ability to grow or increase strength in clients with particularly brittle nails. 

Much like Rubber Base, BIAB™ increases the nails flexibility - meaning nails are much less likely to snap. 

 

They come in a range of super popular nude colours which can be used alone over forms (or underneath any one of our super-pigmented TGB colours) for a super strong extension. They can also be used as a treatment on natural nails that “just WON’T grow”. 

Gelpot is a hard gel that must be filed off and is a fantastic, safer replacement for Acrylic die-hards. 

BIAB™ is painted on (we like to use a ‘floating’ method) and can be soaked off using neat acetone.

Basically, Gelpot is the bigger, stronger sibling of BIAB™, and although GelPot is tougher and can extend further than it’s BIAB™ family, it is not quite as restorative on the nail.

Are The GelBottle Inc products vegan?

Absolutely, no fur babies are ever harmed in any way during the production of TGB products.

 

In case of allergic reaction :In the extremely unlikely circumstance of a user receiving a reaction get in touch with us for immediate removal of any product applied to the nail.
