Blonde Tiger is by appointment only. Please check availability and book online via availability online or send me a quick SMS.
Your appointment time is when your treatment begins, so please feel free to arrive 5-10 minutes early in order to choose a gel polish colour, have a cup of tea or a glass of wine, flip through a magazine, or just relax!
Gel Polish Services
The Blonde Tiger Gel Manicure
Nails are shaped and cuticles gently tidied in preparation for application of LED-cured gel polish (I use Luxio by Akzentz, CND’s Shellac, Hand & Nail Harmony’s Gelish, and IBD’s Just Gel). Followed by application of cuticle oil and hand cream.
Choose from over 120 colours – polish lasts up to 2 weeks! Subsequent removal of gel polish applied by me is always free of charge. New clients requiring gel polish removal, please book the 15 minute gel polish removal in conjunction with your first manicure booking.
Luxe Tiger Gel Manicure
Same as the Blonde Tiger Gel Mani with an exfoliating coconut oil and pink Himalayan salt scrub and relaxing hand massage with shea butter hand treatment. For those times you need a lil’ extra pampering.
The Blonde Tiger Pedicure
Calluses are buffed smooth with a series of diamond files and treated with a cosmeceutical-grade enzyme peel. Feet are then soaked in a mint and tea tree aromatherapy foot bath and exfoliated with coconut oil and pink Himalayan salt scrub. Toenails trimmed, shaped, and cuticles gently tidied. This is followed by a relaxing, moisturising foot massage, then finished with your choice of gel-polish or traditional polish.*
*My demand for traditional polish services is low, so I only keep a couple of dozen basic colours on hand (as opposed to my 100+ gel polish colours). You are welcome to bring your own nail lacquer, which I’m happy to use with my own high-quality Lumos base and topcoat that dries in under 10 minutes. You’ll need to bring open-toe shoes to wear post-pedicure if you opt for traditional polish.
The Blonde Tiger Mani+Pedi Duo
Have the two most popular treatments in one appointment- the Blonde Tiger Gel Manicure and the Blonde Tiger Pedicure.

Natural Nail Services
Blonde Tiger Naked Manicure
Find out how good your nails can look in their naked, natural glory!
Nails are shaped and cuticles are gently tidied. After your hands are treated to a macadamia oil sugar scrub, the nail plate is carefully buffed smooth with a soft buffer and jojoba oil to reduce ridges and bring out the natural shine.
You may choose to finish this service with a nail colour at no extra charge, however as I predominately use gel-polish, you are welcome to bring your own colour (I keep a dozen basic colours on hand) which I am happy to use with my own high-quality Lumos base and topcoat that dries in under 10 minutes.
IBX Naked & Strong Manicure
Have you always wanted stronger, healthier nails without gels, wraps, overlays, or daily applications of smelly nail hardener? Well, the IBX in-salon strengthening treatment is for you!
As a Natural Nail Growth Treatment
- IBX Repair is used to repair severe nail damage to set the stage for growth
- IBX toughens the upper layers of the nail plate allowing nail growth
- With multiple treatments fills up deep grooves resulting in a smoother nail plate
- Natural nail color and appearance improved
- The best part -nothing is left on top of the nail that needs to be removed later!
This service proceeds exactly like the Naked Manicure, except that prior to tidying the cuticles, IBX your nails and you’ll sit for a minute with a small heater gently warming your hands, allowing the product to penetrate the top layers of the nail. IBX is then cured in the LED lamp, and this process is repeated twice more. We then proceed with the rest of the manicure. Let me stress – there is nothing left on top of your nail – it has been strengthened from the inside out, and you can see and feel the difference immediately!
(You may finish this service with a nail colour -see Naked Manicure description above)
IBX Nail Rehab Package
If your nails are thin, weak, peeling, bendy, or brittle, then you already know that the IBX Naked & Strong Manicure (see above) is perfect for you.
The IBX system is like exercise for your nails – you need to do it regularly, and the effects are cumulative.
Let Erin put your nails on a personalised strength training regimen and save $60 by pre-booking a block of 4 IBX Naked & Strong Manicures. At your first appointment, you will also receive your own 3.75ml bottle of Dad’i Oil, my favourite cuticle and nail oil made by Famous Names, the creators of IBX.
Note – IBX Nail Rehab package appointments may not be split between or transferred between clients, and must be used within 4 months of the first booking.

Nail Art is offered for gel polish options only!
Glitter – At Blonde Tiger, we love glitter so much, it’s always FREE! Customise your mani or pedi with a micro-glitter fade. Dozens of colors to choose from!
Most of the nail art I offer takes no more than 15 extra minutes, so please make sure you have a look at my Instagram to see if my style is right for you. Nail art options include glitter, metallic foils, and simple hand-painted designs (lines, dots, reverse French, negative space, etc). If you would like to request a design you found online, please contact me via email so that I can let you know if it’s within my abilities (if it’s not, I’m happy to refer you to another nail tech).
