Pre-treatment Advice

  • If you currently have Gel polish on please ensure you book a Gel removal or have the Gel polish removed prior to your appointment.

Aftercare Advice

  • Always remove your Gel polish properly. The Jessica Gel removal home kit is available to purchase in salon or we also offer a nail removal service.

  • Do NOT pick or peel the gel as this can damage the natural nail.

  • Avoid heat such as a bath, shower, sauna, steam room or even hot ovens for 4 hours after your treatment.

  • Wear gloves when washing up or cleaning

  • Do not file your nails in between appointments as this will break the seal of the gel and can lead to lifting.

  • Apply Jessica Phenomen Oil once or twice a day to the cuticles to prolong the life of your Gels.

  • Do not use your nails as tools, this will lead to chips and breaks

  • If you have any problems with your treatment please contact us.
