A few weeks back I was invited to check out a fairly new manicure bar called Get Gelled.
Now, I’ll be honest with you. I’m not into nail art. I can appreciate that it takes a lot time, talent and effort but for a girl that only a few years back was able to wear red on my nails (I was always, always a light pink kind of girl – throw in a little bit a sparkle to be daring) nail art just isn’t for me.
BUT since Get Gelled and owner Sun is known for her nail art I had to do something a little more daring. She was great though, completely understood my concerns and didn’t push. She thought maybe a pretty gradation in a neutral colour would be nice so I happily agreed.
Located in near the Yonge and Bloor area (South of Bloor) Get Gelled manicure bar sits among a cute little neighborhood mix of residential townhomes and boutiques.
I absolutely loved the space and the vibe of the place.
Sun first started with a clear coat on my nails – after each coat my nails cured under a UV lamp. The next coat was the lighter colour. It came in a pot and looked a lot like cream eye shadow to me! She even applied it very skillfully with a brush! After curing again the next step was the darker shade. She also convinced me to try out two little “pearls” on my ring fingers.
That’s about as daring as I was willing to get LOL! So strange considering I’ve actually done things like sky diving and flying in an open cockpit plane…but yeah…bling on the nails is just too much for me 😛
I really loved the gradation finish on the nails. It’s very subtle but pretty. I could never get used to the pearl though. I would forget and think that I had something stuck to my nails haha! But other than that, I had a really great experience at Get Gelled. Sun and Victoria who contacted me were such great hosts. We had a great time chatting which makes the experience that much better!
