‘Having gel nails by MBS they are guaranteed to stand out and give you that added confidence we all need!’
We offer a wide range of nail treatments depending on your desired look.
Using gel polish and hard gel these enable your nails to be harder wearing and to last longer than your natural nails would normally. The gel polish is dried/set using a LED lamp which is not harmful to your nails. The gel activates with the lamp and sets in as little as 30-60 seconds, no need to worry about drying time.
Gel nails are the perfect way to grow your natural nails and build strength to your existing nails without causing damage to them.
If you are looking for a simple treatment that’s quick and effective this is perfect for you. The nail technician will file and prep your nails before applying your gel colour of choice.
Gel Manicure Colchester
A full manicure treatment at The Mind Body & Soul is an upgraded version of a gel file and polish. If you want a manicure that looks stunning and lasts, the gelish manicure is the right choice for you.
You will start by having your cuticles gently pushed back, and any excess cuticle removed, this helps to reduce the gel from lifting. Your nail will then be buffed and shaped to your preferred shape, and a gel colour of your choice applied. To finish off, your therapist will massage in a nourishing hand cream, and a cuticle oil will be applied giving you the glamorous experience you deserve right here in Colchester.
This is a treat for your feet! Similar to the manicure above, but first off, your feet will be soaked in a warm, bubbly foot spa in a relaxing environment at The Mind Body & Soul Colchester. You will then move onto a seated couch, so you can totally relax, and switch off. Once you’re on the seated couch, your therapist will begin to remove any hard callus skin using a foot rasp. And like the manicure, your cuticles will be gently pushed back, and any dry excess cuticle removed, helping to reduce your gel from lifting. Your nail will then be buffed and cut back, and a gel colour of your choice applied. To finish off, we massage in a nourishing foot cream, and apply cuticle oil. You will go away with your feet feeling light and refreshed with a brand new gel pedicure.

Gel Manicure Aftercare;
Apply cuticle oil to your nail beds every day.
Do not file your nails unless necessary. If you need to, take care to file gently and always finish in a downward direction.
Always wear gloves when doing general household cleaning and gardening, hobbies that are rough on your hands or use harsh chemical products.
Avoid using your nails as tools to pull open or pick at anything.
Take care not to use any products that could contain solvent oils, which causes major damage to the color. These oils can be found in certain suntan oils and insect repellent.
To avoid the color fading on holiday, make sure you wash any chlorine off your hands after swimming and dry your nails before sunbathing.
If any lifting occurs, make sure you do not pick or pull at the nail. Call us so that we can assess the nail and decide if a repair is necessary.
Before your next treatment be sure to book in a gel removal to ensure no damage occurs on the natural nail
