New & Improved Polished Gel Top & Base Coats Are Here!

gel base and top coats for Polished Nail Bar in Charlotte and Raleigh
Remember a couple years ago when we introduced our exclusive gel base and top coats? Well, we’ve worked with our R&D folks, made a few tweaks, and we now have a new and improved formula! Our gel  manicures are still guaranteed to last at least 14 days, and our base and top coats will still work with any brand of gel polish. If a gel manicure using our branded top and base coats doesn’t hold up for at least two weeks, you can have the mani fixed at no additional charge. However, a receipt for the original service will be required as proof of purchase. Polished Nail Bar is Charlotte and Raleigh’s premier gel manicure destination.

It’s time to give them a little TLC.  Follow these simple nail care tips for the best nails this season. After hand washing, slather your hands in moisturizer. At night, rub cuticle oil (or olive oil if you’re in a pinch) in to your cuticles. Use rubber gloves when washing dishes. Limit time spent in hot showers or tubs. Wear gloves or mittens when you’re outside. Do not tear or bite off hang nails.  This leave your vulnerable to infections. Get regular manicures.
