TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE OF OUR WEBSITE
These are our terms and conditions. They apply each time you visit our site or use our services and we will assume that you’ve read them before you use our services. They do change from time to time so please re-read them each time you visit us.
BECAUSE WE OPERATE ON AN APPOINTMENT ONLY BASIS AND DO NOT ACCEPT WALK-INS, WE HAVE A STRICT CANCELLATION/NO SHOW POLICY. PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU UNDERSTAND IT BEFORE YOU MAKE A BOOKING.
These Terms and Conditions comprise the following sections:
o Our Service
o General Terms
which together form the basis of the legal relationship between us and both you and we agree to be bound by what each section says.
Once we have acknowledged your appointment, a binding obligation will exist between each of us to keep that appointment.
● CANCELLATION/NO SHOW
If you are not able to keep the appointment, then you must let us know at least 24 hours before the time of the appointment – or 48 hours before if your appointment is on a Monday. Time is of the essence for this condition as we will not be able to fill that appointment, if you do not attend it.
As long as you cancel the appointment in line with the previous condition, we will make no charge to you. If you do not cancel it as shown above, we will charge you the full fee for that appointment and we will invoice you for that missed appointment.
If we are not able to keep the appointment, we will tell you by email and give you as much notice as we can (usually 24 hours, but less if we have staff illness or shortage). If we have to cancel, we will offer you the next available appointment, suitable to you, but will not incur any other penalty.
You agree that, for the purposes of the Regulations, we may confirm the terms of the agreement between us and the Treatment/s we are providing by email.
We accept payment in cash and by credit and debit cards and, for certain Treatments, your card will be charged when you make the appointment.
We do not keep any information about your bank or credit cards after the order has been completed or we have returned the money you have paid us.
● SUBSTITUTE PRODUCTS
Whilst we will always try to meet the exact specification we show on the Site, but you accept that it may not be possible to use the same materials and designs that we advertise.
You understand and agree that we may substitute all and any materials and may make slight design changes to our Treatments if, in our sole opinion, we deem it appropriate and that the Treatment is not significantly different from that which we have advertised. You agree that such substitution will not give rise to any claim under the agreement between us.
● MEDICAL CONDITION
You warrant that all and any medical information you have given to us in relation to the Treatments we provide to you is accurate and complete.
You will tell us, before you undertake any Treatment, of any condition that you suffer from or of any changes in your medical condition since you completed the Client Record Card which:
- might affect or be affected by that Treatment; or
- might adversely affect the person providing that Treatment.
You will provide us with a complete indemnity and agree to hold us harmless from all and any losses we sustain if you do not comply with the provisions of this section including contingent and foreseeable losses and including all costs and expenses we incur in pursuing any claim against you.
The Treatments we supply and the finishes they offer can be damaged if you do not follow the instructions we give you and/or you do not take reasonable care.
If you chip a nail or experience any other problems with the Treatment you must tell us as soon as you can. If we agree with you, we will arrange for a repair to be carried out at no cost to you.
We are not able to apply our treatments if you have acrylic nails or hard gel extensions and will charge the full amount of the Treatment if we are unable to provide it for these reasons.
As a consumer, you have various rights by law and we will always honour those rights and nothing in these Terms and Conditions removes or tries to remove any of them.
● GIFT VOUCHERS
If you are making an appointment having received a Gift Voucher, you accept and agree these Terms and Conditions will apply to you. If you do not agree with them, you must tell us and we will issue a replacement Gift Voucher to the person from whom you received it.
Our Gift Vouchers have a limited life of 12 months from the day on which they were purchased and if they are not used in that time, they will have no value after that period has expired.
We do not refund or exchange Gift Vouchers and the Treatment you will receive will be limited to the value shown on the Gift Voucher.
● OUR LOYALTY SCHEME
Our Loyalty Scheme is designed to offer you reduced price Treatments from time to time but all and any Treatments offered under the Loyalty Scheme are subject to these Terms and Conditions.
Our Loyalty Scheme operates only through the App we provide and, if you wish to claim the points we offer, you must scan the QR Code we supply when you attend your appointment. If you do not scan the QR Code when you are with us, we will have no obligation to offer you that Code on a later occasion for a Treatment received in the past.
We may apply additional conditions to our Loyalty Scheme and, if we do, we will either publish them on the Site or give you a printed version of them. In either event, those conditions will apply to each new Loyalty Card we issue.

We can’t promise that the Site will work with all systems; that it will be secure and that all information provided will be accurate.
We don’t give advice on the Site, just general opinions, so don’t rely on what we say when you make any decisions.
We take all reasonable effort to test material before placing it on the Site. In the very unlikely event of any loss, disruption or damage, we cannot be held responsible for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or computer system which may occur whilst using material derived from the Site.
We don’t have any control over any of the products available through the Site so we can’t guarantee them in any way.
If you link to any other site using the Site then you understand that separate conditions will apply to those sites and that we have no control over those conditions – so you agree that you will read and understand them before using those sites.

We have the right to change the Site and the services it offers, suspend it or stop it at any time.
● LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
As far as we are allowed by law we deny liability for any losses of all kinds which you incur from visiting and/or using the Site. You use the Site at your own risk.
However, nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or restricts our liability for death or personal injury resulting from any negligence or fraud on our part.
● LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
We don’t control any of the websites we link to and so we can’t be responsible for the content of such websites and disclaim liability for any losses which come out of you using them.
Just because we link to a site does not mean that we endorse or recommend that site.
We can never guarantee that a link will work.
● MODIFICATIONS TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS & THE SITE
You agree to re-read these Terms and Conditions each time you visit the Site so as to understand any changes we’ve made to them.
