Spring Gel Manicures: Everything You Need To Know About The Best Manicures In Mayfair

9 Mar 2023

As spring approaches, many of us are looking at the latest nail art trends for 2023 and taking into consideration how we can add some spring colours to our nails. At Nails & Brows, we know that your nails are the perfect accessory to any outfit, so why not let your nails do the talking with the perfect gel manicure this spring? In this article, we will discuss how you can get perfectly manicured nails and the best place to go in Mayfair.

What Is A Gel Manicure?

A gel manicure swaps out traditional varnish for shellac or gel that uses a UV light to set and cure the polish to the nails. Curing means that it will last a lot longer than normal varnish and will stay perfect for a prolonged period of time. 

Gel manicures are great for all nail lengths and are ready to go as soon as you leave the salon with no drying time needed. 

Where Can You Go To Get The Best Manicure In Mayfair

Look no further than Nails & Brows – we have curated a menu of the most effective nail treatments. We use only non-toxic products that are vegan and we have our very own team of experts to give you and your nails the ultimate nail art design and TLC!

Choose from our non-toxic gel and shellac options, for shiny and flawless manicured nails:

CND Shellac Manicure

Looking for a manicure that will last through busy workdays? Includes flawless filing and cuticle work, exfoliation, as well as a relaxing hand and arm massage. 

Non-Toxic Gel Manicure

Using vegan, non-toxic gel polish that is easily removed just like regular polish. Nails are cut, filed to shape, cuticles pushed back and gently tidied followed by a brightening exfoliator and luxe hand cream. 


How Long Do Gel Manicures Last? 

Due to the way the polish is cured, your shellac and gel manicure will stay shiny and chip-free for up to 10-14 days with zero drying time. 

The gel or shellac polish will stay shiny and fresh, the main reason for having your nails redone is because your nails and cuticle will start to grow out and it will need tidying up!  

How Long Should You Wait Between Gel Manicures?

When you get your nails done, it can be easy to let them grow out and wait too long in between appointments. But regular manicures help to keep your nails underneath the gel healthy and strong

However, we do advise that you leave a window between your manicures to allow your nails to breathe without any varnish on them. If you constantly have gel or shellac on your nails then this can suffocate your nail plate and make your nails brittle and weak. 

Due to this, we recommend that once you have your gel or shellac removed, wait a few days to a week before having another manicure.
