Calgel Nail Enhancements

For nails you can't stop looking at

For nails you can't stop looking at

No need to be ashamed of your nails or hide them from view so that nobody can see the condition they are in. With our extensive range of nail services, whether treating your own nails or reparing an overlay, we're here to help.

Whether you want your nails looking their best for a special occasion, for going on holiday, for a hot date, for a night out or for everyday life, we can help you to have hands worth holding and glamorous feet to impress.
We use quality Calgel products - the original true one phase gel nail system. With a formula that has remained unchanged since its original introduction, Calgel is designed to maintain the condition of the natural nail. It is a unique system which does not require any primers, base gels, or sealers.

Calgel was designed with the natural nail in mind and not only protects, but also helps to improve the condition of the natural nail. Calgel allows and encourages nail growth while providing beautiful, long lasting and glossy nails.

One Phase Gel Nails

Calgel is the true ORIGINAL one phase soak off gel, available in over 120 colours with no need for base coats, primers or sealers Calgel colour nail gel can also be applied directly onto the natural nail.

Swarovski Elements

Flexible nature

Calgel is extremely hard wearing; its strength is in its flexibility as it acts as a shock absorber on the natural nail, removing the risk of chipping and cracking. This allows movement with the natural nail and reduces the possibility of breakage and snapping. An optional layer of clear gel can be applied onto the natural nail prior to tip application to help provide extra protection and stability for the natural nail.

Better for your nails

Calgel allows air and moisture to pass through the layers of the gel so nails do not become dehydrated, flaky or brittle over time. For this reason, no ‘break’ is needed between treatments and one can infill up to three times before requiring a soak off.  After fully soaking off, fresh layers of Calgel can be applied without the worry of ruining the natural nail.

Flexible sculptured gel nails to reduce breaks

Calgel's flexible nature reduces the risk of breakage or snapping whilst remaining hard wearing and long lasting. The condition of the natural nail will either be improved or remain as strong and hydrated (providing they were in a good condition to begin with).Calgel is as close to an everla
sting polish as you can get.


Ability to infill

Calgel’s ability to infill allows changing colour from a lighter gel colour to a darker shade, giving a whole new look without having to soak off. Fortnightly removals are not necessary, this avoids over exposure to soak off products which may cause the nails to dry out, if being used too often.

Soak Off

Once Calgel has been correctly and safely soaked off, the natural nail will be left clean and damage free. The removal process involves placing Wonder Wipe (cotton wool), soaked in our Soak Off solution, on top of the gel and then wrapping our Soak off Foil around the finger tip. This allows the gel to lift off from the nail plate. A full soak off should only take minutes and by using Wonder Wipe there is no need to soak the fingers in a bowl of acetone. NO harsh tools, electric drills or files are needed.

Lie Back, Relax and Wax.....

Waxing is a method of semi-permanent hair removal which removes the hair from the root cause. New hairs will not grow back in the previously waxed area for two to eight weeks. Almost any area of the body can be waxed, including eyebrows, face, bikini area, legs, arms, back, abdomen and feet.

Julia will ensure the treatment is as comfortable as possible and is expertly trained in tending to all areas of your body, whether for a bikini wax, Brazilian wax, leg wax or unwanted facial hair, so you can be confident you’re in safe hands.

There are many types of waxing suitable for removing unwanted hair. If waxing is done regularly for several years, permanent hair reduction may be achieved.

Waxing - FAQ’s

Anything I need to do before and after waxing?

  • Avoid tight clothing after waxing, especially in the waxed areas as it may result in irritation and/or ingrown hairs.
  • Avoid immediate exposure to the sun after waxing and wear a sun-screen over recently waxed areas.
  • Avoid deodorants and antiperspirant for 24 hours following an underarm waxing treatment.
  • Women may experience extra sensitivity to waxing up to a week prior to the beginning of their menstruation.
  • Please do not use a sun bed or overexpose the area you are having waxed to the sun 24 hours before your appointment.

Do I need to exfoliate?

No, as the waxing process will remove any layers of dead skin cells.

Does Waxing hurt?

It’s really not as bad as you think; everyone’s tolerance for pain is different. Julia is trained to wax quickly and communicate thoroughly with clients every step of the way on how to position your body or stretch your skin to minimise pain.

How long does waxing take?

Depending on the body part and the density of the hair growth, your waxing appointment will take between 15 minutes to one hour.

How long will the results last?

After your first wax, the results can last 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the individual’s hair re-growth. In most cases, hair growth is minimal during the first week or two and noticeably increases in the third and fourth week. With regular waxing, the length of time required between treatments will increase significantly.

Are there any possible side effects of waxing?

We cannot predict or guarantee who may react; most clients do not experience anything beyond redness and some minor irritation.

Our Tinted Eyelash treatments are beneficial for women with an active lifestyle who again may not have the time to perfectly apply their makeup at all times and is a great alternative to mascara.

Eyelash tinting is waterproof and is good if you are swimming or going on holiday.
Our tint lasts for up to 6 weeks and is waterproof. It is great because it looks like your wearing mascara but without all the clumps and smudging.

For eyelash tinting an Allergy Patch Test is required (free) which  involves putting a dab of hair dye solution behind the ear, leaving it there for24 hours, and looking for itching, burning, redness, or other reactions. If you experience any of these symptoms you must not continue with the treatment but seek medical advice.

Eyebrow Tinting

Our Eyebrow Tinting treatments will enhance the general appearance of your eyes and can be beneficial for those who participate in sporting activities such as swimming. When there is no time to wear makeup, Tinted Eyebrows bring out your natural beauty and leaves your face looking fresh and beautiful. Eyebrow tinting transforms the colour of your eyebrows and can be used to give the illusion of thickness and dimension.

How do I get the best from my spray tan?

  • Exfoliate before.
  • Shave or wax your legs before, as shaving also removes the colour.
  • Always wear loose clothing afterwards.
  • When having your first shower after a fake tan, wash of the excess product before washing your hair as the soap can affect how much is washed off.
  • Try to avoid sleeping in the hand under face on pillow position.
  • Keep your skin moisturised at all times

The product may stain silk, nylon and leather clothing. Any clothes put on after the application should be dark, cotton based and loosely fitted so they will not rub your tan. Any colour that rubs off can usually be washed out in a normal wash cycle. Try to avoid putting on closed shoes and socks as they will cause your feet to sweat and also grind down your tan as you walk.
