Custom Nail Creations

Canberra's custom nail salon with a difference.


Hi there, I’m Paulette.


— and I'm the face and the driving force of Gel-icious Nails.

My main objective is simple - 100% client satisfaction.

I’m born and raised in Canberra, an ACT girl through and through.

I created my small business in 2008. It started off as a hobby but I loved it so much it soon became a vocation. I am a fully qualified nail technician who, that has 14 years experience perfecting the skill of applying gel, using various techniques and methods. I’ve worked hard to source only quality brands and products to create flawless, natural looking nails. I also have a wide range of designs and accessories on offer. From offering over 200 colour options to creating intricate and on-trend nail art for all occasions and personalities, you will certainly find the right glam for you!



Birds are my favourite animal – hence my hummingbird branding and also a reason I love Canberra with all the stunning birdlife. Although I can’t resist cuddling any animal that comes my way.  I enjoy growing African Violets, going to live shows and relaxing with hubby, our Shitzu - Coco and of course my budgies! What I do not like is food shopping because I’m short and can never reach what I need (thankfully hubby does the shopping) and humid weather the day after I wash my hair!  If you’re looking at booking your initial appointment with me, I look forward to finding out more about YOU!

So if you’re after a memorable experience, with instagram worthy nails — give me a call and let’s get you booked in.  You will not be disappointed!

My favourite aspect of running my own business is meeting and getting to know people. I enjoy a chat and sharing experiences and a laugh while making your dream nails become a reality. So, whether you are keen for a coffee and chat while I work or you prefer to relax and watch your favourite TV show — you will enjoy a quiet, private environment to unwind.

What people say...

I used to got nail salons and ended up with a bad nail infection from the trauma of the drilling and the products. I almost lost my nails. I was then told to give gel sculpture a go and away from the salons. I googled and found Paulette and she is amazing. So delicate and careful and finished product is amazing. I moved away for work and tried couple of places but they did not begin to compare so stopped getting my nails done. I moved back to Canberra at beginning of the year after 5yrs and first thing I did was give Paulette a call. I can only do appointments every 4 weeks and they last every time. Paulette is a must go to for quality nails that don't ruin your real nails. She is also very accommodating with scheduling you in. I cannot recommend her highly enough! Thank you Paulette you are amazing!
