Great gel nail removal. Sometimes technician are a little heavy handed and damage the nail when scraping off the gel polish. Not here, it was a very gentle touch and my nails were clean and undamaged in no time. Very much recommend this service!

Jasmine was great the gel removal and manicure was good. Only thing is I wasn’t sure re tool used to remove gel as it’s usually different. The glitter on gels is nice but it’s catching a bit on some nails which is slightly irritating.

Amazing leg & foot massage!!! I’ve been having sciatica and had terrible pains recently. Jasmine was absolutely brilliant & I’m definitely booking in for a full body massage as she’s a clearly brilliant massage therapist. It was a v hot day but downstairs was so cool and a lovely cool gel pad was placed to rest your face. Faultless.

Book your next gel nails appointment in Forest Hill with Fresha

Welcome to Fresha. We're so glad you're here. Because we're about to change the way you book your nail appointments for good. A quick scroll on our app or website reveals all the top-rated nail salons in Forest Hill with live availability. Plus, our handy site lets you compare prices, customer reviews and even pay for your appointment online. Easy breezy.

Your new favourite nail salon could be just around the corner. Trust Fresha to show you the best that Forest Hill has to offer. We can see that businesses in your area have good 5.0 star average ratings and reviews, so things are looking up. And with around 20 select nails businesses near you, there's plenty to consider. It’s high time we find you the perfect appointment, right up your street.

Gel nails are called ‘two-week nails’ because you're guaranteed long-lasting results with a gel manicure. While polish from regular manicures can chip inside a week, gel nail colour can last up to 3 to 4 weeks with the right care.

They’re shinier and feel sturdier too. You can choose anything from classic colours to nail art with gel nails, so costs range between £5 and £55. Shellac is one of the popular brands to look out for. Book gel nails in Forest Hill on Fresha’s mobile app, where booking your next manicure or gel nails removal only takes a few taps.

So your journey to self-care satisfaction is nearly complete. It only takes one nail technician, in one Forest Hill nail salon, to take you from status quo to exceptional. Head to our help centre if you'd like extra help getting there. And know that we're aiming for exceptional, too. We've booked 600 million appointments in 120 countries around the world, including the UK, and we work with over 300,000 professionals — and counting. Millions of business owners have partnered with Fresha, using our best-in-class, free appointment booking app to serve you better. With Fresha, arriving at your dream wellness destination is as simple as walking through the salon doors.

Gel Nails FAQs

Gel nails cost between £5 and £55 in Forest Hill.

Once you’ve had gel nails applied, they should remain chip-free for between 2-3 weeks.

Although gel manicures look beautiful, they can cause your natural nails to become brittle. The American Academy of Dermatology reports that repeated use of gel nails can increase the risk of skin cancer and the premature ageing of skin on the hands.

Gel and shellac nails both cure under UV light, but their composition is different. Gel nail polish is a lacquer made from acrylic monomers and oligomers; shellac polish is part gel, part regular nail polish, and is a patented brand by Creative Nail Design (CND). Both give a high shine and long-lasting finish.

Gel nails tend to give a more natural and glossier finish than acrylic nails; they are cured under a UV lamp and last for around 2 weeks. Acrylic nails are stronger than gels and start to cure as soon as they’re exposed to air; they generally last for 6-8 weeks but will need fills after 2 weeks to hide regrowth. Both can be used to lengthen nails and both can damage your natural nails.

Once every 2 weeks. Gel nails cure (harden) in UV light; this means they continue to cure in natural sunlight. The longer you keep your polish on, the longer it cures and the harder it is to remove. To reduce the risk of stripping and damaging your nails, it’s recommended that you book in with an experienced nail technician to remove and redo your gel nail polish every 2 weeks.
