Re: Manicure Nails with Gel in Basel (almost)

Sorry for the blatant plug, but my girlfriend is a qualified nail technician and does Gel nails in the Gellert area of Basel. She speaks very good English and is generally very nice



Give her a call or text on 078 8472702 (Caroline)

Hi
I get my gel nails done at Ahornstrasse 3, 4055 Basel (079 725 52 96)
She is really good and speaks english too.

You can take Tram 1 right to the doorstep
Do you know the price for a set of gel nails at this location?
Thanks

Re: Manicure Nails with Gel in Basel (almost)

I got a pedicure there when I first arrived to Basel. I have to say, it was the "closest thing to home" I've found in the Basel area, but it was just very superficial. For a thorough pedicure, Harmoniza is still the best, but it's not very relaxing. Needless to say... my feet have gotten very, very ugly in the time that I've been here due to neglect.

Hi all!

I was just wondering if anyone knows of somewhere in Basel that does gelish nails? Just discovered them in the UK

Any saloon in Basel that does nails will do gel nails, not acrylic. I had mine done at pureaveda near the Freiestrasse in Basel, they are expensive but the service is superb, also if you break one they will replace it free of charge as long as you do the correct maintenance every 3-4 weeks.

Re: Manicure Nails with Gel in Basel (almost)

Thank you! Maybe a daft question but are gel nails the same as gelish? Gelish are not fake nails just a gel based nail polish - bit tougher and lasts longer....
