Which is the best choice of nail service for you?

There are descriptions for every type of service under 'Geek Advice' but don't worry if you're still not sure what you want. just book a manicure

or pedicure for natural nail care, a 'Gel Polish or Builder gel' for extra support and long lasting colour, 'Overlays' to super-strengthen and protect natural length or 'Extensions' to artificially lengthen... we'll figure it out from there when you visit.


How can you be sure your natural nail condition

will be maintained?

The whole ethos of Care and Flair is to preserve, protect and improve natural nails regardless of what enhancement you choose. This is the personal desire that sparked and then fuelled my professional development. You can read more about how it all began here.

Do I use high quality products?

You can trust that only professional and reputable brands are used, 

I favour those that are ideally hypoallergenic and always cruelty free.

Each brand conforms to the most stringent EU and USA safety standards.

Would I be the right technician for you?

If you are looking for quick fixes then probably no, I don't provide the same service as walk in nail bars. 

I take my time to ensure your nails are treated with the upmost care.

All services include thorough cuticle work, removal of any rough skin surrounding the nails and building good structure to help take the day to day knocks whilst protecting your natural nail condition.
