The GC by George Charles Experience

The moment you step into our nail salon, you’ll be immersed in a world of luxury, comfort, and relaxation. Our studio is more than a place to beautify your nails, it’s a hub where artistry and pampering combine to help you feel empowered in your own skin.

When you first arrive at the studio, you’ll be warmly welcomed by our team. We’ll take your coat, offer you a beverage, and provide anything you need to make your visit more comfortable.

To start the manicure, the nail technician will immerse your hands in warm water to gently soften your skin.

Afterward, your cuticles will be cleaned and your nails will be expertly filed and buffed. Once your nails and hands are prepped, it’s time for the painting process.

We’ll take the time to discuss your vision for nail art and reference any inspiration images you may have. Our team can help you achieve a specific look or create a totally unique design—it’s all up to you!

Once the nail art is dry, we’ll carefully add a top coat to seal in the design. Then, we’ll apply a hydrating cuticle oil. To complete the experience, our nail artist will massage a rich hand cream into your skin. Then, they’ll send you off with a warm towel wrap and a brief hand massage.

Our Nail Art Offerings

Our nail art designs are available as add-ons to any of our nail services including gel, gel overlay, and Gel-X extensions. With a variety of polish colors, gems, charms, and accessories to choose from, you’ll have endless nail art design inspiration!

Gel Nail Art – Chicago

Gel nail polish, or no-chip polish, is a popular choice for nail art designs due to its durability. Once the nail art is applied, you can expect your design to last for up to three weeks!

Gel overlays provide additional protection and structure while adding length to your nails. They typically last three to four weeks.
