Artistic Hard Rock and LCN Gel Extensions

‘The healthy and safe alternative to acrylic’

Advanced American and German technology gives you the most natural looking hard gel nail enhancements while still being as strong as acrylic but is flexible and resilient to breaking and cracking.  Artistic Hard Rock and LCN gels are bio-compatible with the natural nail.  No nasty chemicals,  no smell, acid and latex free.  We no longer use acrylic in the salon as the advanced technology of Artistic Hard Rock  and LCN gel resins are incomparable and have no smell (a fresher working environment.)  These gels are fabulous to wear and requires just a little hand buffing when finishing.  LCN hard gel is from Germany and is a vegan resin.

nail salon treatments – manicures and pedicures

For truly beautiful nails, you need a manicure or pedicure from one of our talented technicians at the top beauty and nail salon in Wellington.   We offer the best manicures, gel manicures, natural nail boost gel, ibx repair treatments, hand treatments and hard gel nail extensions.  Enjoy our luxurious  spa manicures with paraffin wax – the European way. Whether you want timeless french tips or a colour from the Artistic, LCNShellac or OPI range, your nails will look amazing.  If you have an unsightly toenail and feel you can’t wear open toed shoes let us rebuild a natural and flexible nail – anyone can have perfect toenails with super flexible Wilde Pedique Gel Resin (used by podiatrists around the world to reconstruct toenails) from LCN (especially popular with runners and dancers).  Read more about nail enhancements…
