Gel nails are often thought of as one of the most visually appealing, healthy nail treatments out there. Offering protection to the natural nail and a wide variety of high-gloss finishing shades, this product comes in the form of ‘hard’ gel (used for extensions) and ‘soft’, soak-off gel (used for more natural nail looks).

At Hair Ministry, we love using a wide range of stunning, high-pigment soft gels. Their robust finish creates a stunning final look resistant to chipping, whilst their strength encourages the growth of your natural nails.

BOB has recently taken the nail world by storm! Perfect for those looking to strengthen their existing nails and indulge in the natural/short manicure trend, ‘Brush on Builder’, is an innovative product in the world of nail enhancement.

The product is high-quality, soak-off gel that’s used to create a strong, flexible overlay on your natural nails, promoting their health and growth. Unlike hard gels or acrylics, BOB has a more natural feel and is less damaging to the nails. It’s available in a variety of nude shades to match your skin tone perfectly, and can be used as a base for other gel colours or nail art designs.

At Hair Ministry, our nail treatments offer a luxury results at reasonable prices. A stunning gel manicure or pedicure is priced at £38. If you’re after a touch of elegance, we can add French tips to your nails for an extra £2.

If you’re looking to start fresh with a soak-off, followed by a new gel manicure or pedicure, it’s only £45 in total. French tips can be added too, for a minimal fee of £2.

For those who prefer extra strength and durability, our BOB (Brush on Builder) gel builder and strong overlay treatment are great value at £45. And if your BOB nails need a little TLC, our infill and redo service is available for £49.

Everyone’s lifestyles are different, and everyone’s nails grow at different rates, meaning there’s no one ‘best’ nail upkeep regimen out there.

With this said, our nail technicians typically recommend booking in for a gel nail appointment approximately every 2-3 weeks depending on their condition. This ensures your nails stay healthy, and your manicure looks as perfect as when it was first applied.

For those who opt for the more robust BOB treatment, a longer interval of 3-4 weeks between appointments might be suitable. However, everyone’s nails are different, so it’s always best to consult with our nail technicians at Hair Ministry for a tailored recommendation.

Nail infills are a maintenance service for hard artificial nails including acrylics, hard gels, and BOB nails. Essentially, they work to fill in the gap that appears between the base of your nail bed and artificial nail as your nails grow out.

The process involves buffing down the surface of your artificial nails, filling in the gap with more of the nail product (acrylic, gel, or BOB), and then reshaping and re-polishing the nails. Nail infills are a great way to extend the life of your manicure and keep your nails looking flawless for longer. At Hair Ministry, we typically recommend getting infills every 3-4 weeks for BIAB nails.

Before coming in for your nail appointment at Hair Ministry, we recommend taking the following steps:

Clean Nails: Come with clean, polish-free nails. If you have gel polish or BOB nails that need to be removed, please let us know in advance so we can schedule extra time for a soak-off.

Hydrate: Keep your hands and cuticles moisturised. Hydrated skin allows for a smoother manicure and better-looking results.

Avoid Injuries: If you have any cuts, bruises, or infections around your nails, you should wait until these are healed before booking an appointment.

Design Decisions: Have a general idea of what you’d like. Whether it’s the colour, design, or type of nail treatment (gel, BOB, etc.), knowing what you want can make the process smoother.

On-Time Arrival: Try to arrive a few minutes early to your appointment to ensure we can start on time and provide the most relaxing experience.

Not all nail salons offer nail art or design services. Here at Hair Ministry, we offer simple nail art and designs including French tips at an added cost to base manicures. Loose glitter is also available for those looking for a little extra sparkle! With hundreds of beautiful shades of polish to choose from as a base, the possibilities are endless.

Be sure to contact us to discuss your design preferences ahead of time, preferably when booking your appointment, to ensure that we can accommodate your request and schedule sufficient time for your needs!

Gel nails are one of the best options out there for those seeking a long-lasting nail look without compromising their nail health. Our nail technicians recommend booking in for either a soft gel manicure or starting your BOB journey if your natural nails are at the top of your priority list.

Hair Ministry use a range of highly reputable gel nail produced renowned for their quality, safety standards, and beautiful glossy finish.

A soak off is a type of nail treatment designed to safely remove harder polishes and products including gels, acrylics, extensions, and BOB. Here at Hair Ministry, we use it to safely remove soft gels and BOB.

The service involves soaking your nails in a safe solution specifically designed to break down the gel – usually an acetone-based remover. After the gel has softened,your nail technician will gently work to remove any leftover product, ensuring your natural nails remain in great condition.

Here at Hair Ministry, we highly recommend a professional soak-off rather than trying to peel or pick the gel off at home, as doing so can damage your natural nails.
