A Manicure & Pedicure That Lasts

The reason we use CND Shellac and The Gel Bottle is that they both provide long-lasting colour which doesn’t chip or smudge. This means your stunning gel nails will last for up to 14 days if taken care of properly! Also, if you’re in a rush you’ll still have time for a quick nail appointment at The Eastwood Retreat in Nottingham because this nail polish dries instantly using safe UV technology so that you can be a gorgeous girl on the go.

CND Shellac is also hypo-allergenic and ‘3-free’, meaning it is free from formaldehyde, toluene and DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate). 

What’s even better is that gel nail colour doesn’t damage your natural nails as acrylic does. So, you can keep getting your nails done as much as you would like without having to worry about damaging your nails.


Feel like a superstar at The Eastwood Retreat Beauty Salon, as we use the same products that are used by celebrities! The likes of Katy Perry, J-Lo and even the Kardashians are seen wearing The Gel Bottle nail polish while Miley Cirus and the stars of Love Island and TOWIE have been spotted sporting CND Shellac polish.  You can be a trendsetter just like these famous females with your own set of stunning nails. The Gel Bottle and CND products are of the highest quality, so you’ll look and feel good with these gorgeous gel nails.


How To Look After Gel Nails

With a little TLC, your gel nails will last longer. Here are our top tips for looking after your gel nails:

  • Avoid doing tough jobs that are rough on your hands, such as gardening and household cleaning. Either get someone else to help or protect your nails by wearing a good pair of gloves!
  • Do not pick your nails! Even if your gel polish is beginning to come off, do not pull it off as this is when you can damage your natural nail – instead, come into our Eastwood salon where we can soak them off or you can get a new set.
  • If you paint over your gel nails, use acetone-free nail polish remover to take the polish off in a way that won’t damage the gel nails underneath.
  • When it’s time to remove your gel nails, book an appointment with one of the professionals at The Eastwood Retreat so that we can remove the polish properly.


The Gel Bottle BIAB

Want a beautiful gel polish manicure that still allows your natural nails to grow?  Try The Gel Bottle's BIAB, or Builder In A Bottle™!

This popular product includes a primer and base in one.  It lets your nails stay strong, so they are much less likely to break and the polish remains intact. The Gel Bottle BIAB comes in a wide range of colours, so you can still get the colour for your manicure that you want!   Find out more in the video below.

What's The Difference Between Gel Nails & Shellac?

You'll get gorgeous, glossy long lasting nail colour with both gel nails and shellac, but there is a subtle difference between the two.  Gel nails use a semi-permanent gel to colour your nails while Shellac is a mixture of gel and regular nail polish.   Both are great choices for a beautiful manicure.  They are very similar, but the addition of polish to Shellac means that it offers a fabulous shine, but can chip slightly more easily than gel.   On the plus side however, it is easier to remove.   Speak to your nail technician at The Eastwood Retreat who will help you decide on the best choice for you.
