Christiane Dowling is a qualified CND™ Professional Nail Artist and has completed CND™ official training specifically in Shellac Nails & Lecenté at their London Academy.

Based in Sandhurst, Berkshire, the Nail Studio is conveniently located for clients in the surrounding areas.

Shellac is a hybrid nail polish, similar in performance to gel, but with a thinner, finer appearance. As the Shellac is cured in a UV Lamp, there is no drying time and it removes in 10 minutes without the need for files or drills, meaning no damage to the underlying nail.

SHELLAC® Manicures deliver up to 14 days of high performance nail wear, superior colour and mirror shine. Over 100 designer shades are stocked, with an extensive range of Lecenté™ Glitters, constantly updated to bring you the latest in the Season’s colours.

I went to Christiane for the first time a couple of days ago to get a set of gels put on.

I’ve never been more pleased with my nails and they’ve lasted longer than any other set I’ve had, normally my others chip off within two days. They feel so strong and healthy, not to mention the beautiful colour! She has a great selection of colours and glitters, so there is something for everyone. I love the fact there is an option to add glitter as normally other salons don’t do this.

Usually, my gels look bumpy and uneven, but these look perfect. I’ve already booked in for my second set and I will definitely become a regular! Highly recommend Christiane!

Fabulous manicure using CND Shellac with Christiane last week. They still look amazing. Huge choice of colours with choice of matt, gloss or pearl topcoat, and glitter too if you wish . Will definitely be coming back again. Going for bolder colours and glitter next time.

Thank u Christiane for doing a lovely job with my manicure. Had a lovely choice of colours and decided on a pretty sparkling one. Christiane was very professional and will definitely be returning.

I was so impressed with my first visit with Christiane I just keep going back. She’s friendly, reliable, professional and very talented. I would highly recommend her for both nails and make up.
