"On the advice of a dear friend, who has been Kathyís client for 25+ years, I made an appointment at Heavenly Nails in Roeland Park. Kathy immediately made me feel comfortable and welcome in her salon, and expertly transformed my short, brittle nails with her gel nail technique. I love the gel nails Ė they stay shiny and beautiful between visits, and they allow my natural nails to grow out to a more attractive length. Kathy truly is a master of her craft, and getting to know her better during each visit is a wonderful bonus! Although I live in the Northland of Kansas City, having Kathy care for my nails is well worth the 30-minute drive each way. I recommend Kathy to everyone in the KC area Ė her central location is quite accessible from anywhere in the KC metro. I am thrilled with my new nails Ė thanks to Kathy, and to my friend who introduced me to her!"
"Ever since I moved here from Boston 3 years ago, I have been looking for a great manicurist/salon to do my nails. I went to every salon on both sides of the state line recommended to me and as you can imagine I was very dissatisfied. I don't have acrylic nails and had never used them in the past and almost all the salon's I went to specialized in acrylic nails! I had given up on finding someone to do my nails until I found Heavenly Nails. Kathy is remarkable in so many ways. I drive 1 hour (30 min each way) to have Kathy do my nails and believe me she is WORTH IT! She is by far the BEST manicurist in the KC Metro area. Thank you Kathy for not only my beautiful nails/hands but for wonderful friendly and clean salon visits."
"Nine months ago I came to Kathy for a "one time" gel manicure. I'd had a bad experience at a salon and wanted to try gel nails with someone else. Kathy is 25 minutes from my home and as a business owner and mother of two, I try to minimize drive time for appointments. Before that first appointment I had every intention of finding someone much closer to home for my next manicure. NOW I will NEVER switch to someone else.
That first manicure was great. Kathy explained the process and I was impressed with her personality and the cleanliness of her salon. When she was finished my nails looked gorgeous. I booked a second appointment and have seen Kathy every two and a half to three weeks since. The drive is well worth it. My nails stay beautiful for up to 3 weeks…no chips, no peeling, and super-shiny. I highly recommend Kathy to anyone looking for beautiful nails and a top-notch manicurist."

Iíve had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful nail technician! Her name is Kathy Lung and my nails look heavenly! I used to wear acrylic but wanted to try something new. I had heard about gel nails; I decided to give Kathy a call!
Kathy is friendly, accommodating and experienced. My gel nails look professional and beautiful. They also have a wonderful shine! They last about three weeks which acrylic never did!
Iíve received several compliments from people and I tell them about Kathy. If you want wonderful gel nails give Kathy a call. Iíll never use anyone else again.
worn acrylic nails for years. I was never completely satisfied
with their appearance. In addition, I was always leery of the
nail salons and their hygiene. However, I did not know there
was an alternative to liquid and powder until I discovered Kathy
and gel nails. It is very difficult to find a technician
willing and experienced with gel nails. When I would call
salons and inquire they would say that it is not a good
product. That is so untrue. Gel nails are better for your
natural nails compared to the drying and harsh products required
with acrylic. Kathy is extremely skilled with gel product. The
appearance of gel nails is thinner and more natural looking. I
will never go back to acrylic! I highly recommend Kathy.
"The thing I love most about the gel nails is that it looks like
clear polished nails all the time. Working with my hands every
day destroys regular polished nails within a day. With the gel
nails I can go several weeks between sessions and my nails
always look great. It's also nice knowing she cares about the
work she does on my nails. She never races through my appt.
time unless I need her to. She always makes me feel welcome and
offers great conversation and friendship. Thanks for
helping me find this healthier way to make my nails look
See you soon,
"For many years I was
subjected to the tyranny of artificial nails. My vanity
would not let me admit my own nails were cracked, splitting
little nubs. I put up with the LONG hours of putting the
nails on, the short seconds of losing them, ( usually at
some embarrassing time) and the pain in my nail beds after
they fell off. I play the piano and love to clean "with
gusto" and "minus gloves"!!!!!!!!:):):) I am VERY hard on
It was a GREAT day for me
when Kathy made me aware of the gel process. I virtually
never lose a nail and they usually last me for three weeks."
From Overland Park
"My husband surprised me by treating me to gel nails 3
months ago as part of our 20th anniversary
celebration. Several of my friends get their nails done
with Kathy, and they all love it. Honestly, since I have
6 children and home educate them all, I really had not
wanted to take the time before. Wow! Was I surprised!
I have not broken one nail yet and I spend no time on my
nails between appointments. They always look great. The
gel is such a good product and Kathy does a fantastic
job! My nails look very natural but always shiny, and
last 3 to 4 weeks before they are grown out. My hands
even look younger, and my husband thinks they
look pretty. That's important to me."
From Overland Park
"I have been
coming to Heavenly Nails for almost 13 years now.
Before that, I was very frustrated with artificial
nails, as they popped of very easily and were very
hard to maintain. I was immediately impressed (and
still am) by the ability Kathy had in filling my
nails. I have "scooped" nail beds and no one had
been able to fill them right. What a difference!! I
have been wearing them ever since. I also have been
impressed by the cleanliness maintained in
equipment, technique and products. I have NEVER had
ANY problem with infection with my nails since Kathy
had done them (and this includes twice being in
treatment for Leukemia, still no infection!!)
Since Heavenly Nails switched over to Gels, I have
had even more success. The nails stay shiny, the
tips don't wear down and there is minimal lifting
(sometimes none). I get fills every 3 weeks on the
average (due to my "scooped" nails), but know some
who can go up to 5 weeks.
friendly atmosphere and attention are a definite
bonus. I highly
recommend Heavenly Nails to anyone looking for a
Safe, Competent, Professional Nail Technician.
You won't be disappointed!!"
wedding in 2004, I used Biosculpture and thought
it was great, until I discovered Kathy Lung and
her gel product in March. I must say I
absolutely love it and I will not go back to the
old stuff. It looks and feels great. My
nails look so natural, my friends and co-workers
complement me nearly every week, thinking I
manicure every day - but no! My nails look shiny
and great for weeks and they are durable and
strong. As a Designer, I work with clients a lot
showing portfolios and print samples. I have to
have great looking hands.
For those out there looking for the perfect way
to keep your hands looking like a million bucks
without spending a million bucks - call Kathy
Lung. I love her, she's great!

The first time Kathy gave me a gel manicure, was
the day before I started packing to move my
offices. I remember looking at my
fingernails and saying goodbye, knowing they
wouldn't make it through the move.
The gel she used was a thin gel which I
really liked. It definitely felt like my
nail but stronger. I couldn't believe after
a day and a half of packing and a long day
of moving my nails were still there! Only
one broke slightly at the tip but it
didn't appear much shorter than the others.
With the amount of work I was doing with my
hands, I couldn't believe that I had any
nails left at all.
Kathy gave me a manicure under normal
conditions this last time. It's been 4 weeks
and the gel is just starting to peel at the
tips. The polish lasted about a week - they
looked great!!! The thing I love about the
gel is that even when the polish wears or
chips off, I can just take it off and I
still have a strong and shiny gel base
underneath. They even look great without
THANKS AGAIN KATHY!!!
Iím Kathyís mom and have been doing
nails for a long time, too. I am so
impressed with the product she is
using and the way she is using it.
I am proud of her business ethics
and her concern for her clients. I
know the business pretty well, and,
yes, she is right. These are not
your motherís acrylic nails!
No doubt, I am biased....but she
knows I would not say that her work
is terrific if I didnít believe it
From Canby, Oregon
Just over a year ago, I thought
I had tried every fingernail
product known to man and was
convinced that having long,
beautiful, care-free nails was
impossible. Then, Kathy Lung
suggested at church one morning
that I visit her salon for a
manicure with a special gel
product. Since then, I have
been blessed with the greatest
nails I could ever imagine!
It's now common that even weeks
into a manicure I receive
compliments and inquiries about
my nails (which never ever
happened before!) So, to say
that I am satisfied with Kathy's
work is quite the
understatement. In fact, to her
horror, I've told Kathy that she
is not allowed to die before me,
because no one else in the
Kansas City metro has her
training with this particular
product and it is 'her fault'
that I'm so totally spoiled with
I do a lot of hands-on projects
in and outside our home, and
used to spend hours and hours
each week repairing, polishing,
and touching-up my nails. Worst
of all, I could never manage to
get lengthy nails at the same
time. Now, 'maintenance time'
consists of filing-down my nails
every 10 days or so because they
get too long! Kathy's process
ends the chipping and the
breaking, and the polish lasts
so much longer. Talk about
thrilling! I still smile when I
compare how hard it used to be
to just have O.K. nails, to how
effortless, now, to have
"heavenly nails!" Thank you Kathy!
From Prairie Village
Having never been one of
those people who inherited
beautiful nails from the
parental genes, I resorted
to all different ways of
trying to cope with my
naturally thin, short,
brittle nails. Iíve glued
on, painted and played with
various products to give the
illusion of length. I all
but gave up thinking I was
doomed to ugly nails for the
rest of my life. That is,
until a couple of close
friends recommended Kathy to
me and assured me I wouldnít
be disappointed with her
work. Well after being a
client now for a little over
4 months, I can say they
were totally right. Kathy
is one of a kind in her
approach to nail care. I
was skeptical to try
anything acrylic because of
bad previous experiences
with fungus and infection
but I LOVE the gel nails.
They are so different from
anything Iíve ever used on
my nails. They stay shiny
between fills and still look
beautiful weeks later.
Since Kathy has been doing
my nails, I havenít had a
problem with a single nail
getting infected which both
surprised and impressed me.
My nails are stronger and
healthier than ever and I
always get compliments from
friends and family. It
makes me feel so good that
even after my nails have
grown out for a few weeks,
people still take my hands
in theirs and rave about how
natural and beautiful my
nails look. I never thought
my nails would be something
I would get compliments on.
I wish I had before and
after pictures to show the
dramatic difference! Thank
you for all that you do
Kathy!! You are an amazing
nail technician and a
