Jelly, A Gel Studio

About Heather Bouyear

I am the manicurist at Jelly, A Gel Studio located in the Sola Salon Suites in Vancouver WA. I am licensed in nails, esthetics and hair services, but my focus is on nails with skin care benefits for hands and feet. If I wasn’t a nail tech, I’d be an esthetician for sure.

I have loved nails since I was small, but I didn’t attend beauty school right away. I attended Pacific University in Forest Grove, OR where I received a Bachelor of Science. While there, I became enthralled with biology and developed a love of art. It took a while to realize doing nails is the perfect marriage of my interests. I graduated from Bella Institute School of Cosmetology in Tigard OR and the rest is history.

I am passionate about providing safe and luxurious foot care to the Vancouver and surrounding area. You will always have a clean space, cleaned and disinfected implements, and a brand new file and buffer that I dispose of at the end of your service. I never use razors or cheese grater like tools and there are no jetted tubs here. Instead, I offer foot soaks in a pipe-less, stainless steel basin with a single-use disposable liner for each service. You can opt for a waterless pedicure as well. I am safety certified for e-file use and am respectful and work with clients who have concerns about any tool or technique.

I have a gel studio, so all my enhancement work is with hard gel. It has no odor, feels lighter, looks crystal clear, and lends a depth to art that cannot be matched. I do provide natural nail care with nail polish or gel polish as well. I enjoy providing classic looks as well as modern expression sets.  

I regularly attend continuing education courses to learn new things, keep up on trends and to refresh my inspiration. These courses have led to my full certification with Light Elegance’s bachelor degree program and various other brands such as Akzentz and LCN.

“Great experience!! I had a toenail issue from a salon with jetted tubs, not ever again! The first thing I noticed is how clean Heather’s salon is and how much she cares about hygiene. On top of that I received an amazing mani/delux pedi! She also does hard gel, which I have had a hard time finding. Definitely will be back!!”


“If you go to Heather once you will be a customer for life. She is what real customer service is! She does a beautiful job and her massage chair is very relaxing while having my pedicure. Can’t say enough about how truly professional she is. Thanks Heather”


“Heather is a fantastic nail artist with attention to safety, cleanliness, and detail. I’m a regular client of hers, and have never been disappointed.”


“I just had my first pedicure with Heather and it was truly one of the best experiences I've ever had. She reclined me in a zero-gravity chair, closed the drapes and even gave me a blanket. I snoozed, warm and cozy, while my feet were getting pampered. I plan to make this a once a month "me" treat. I deserve it!”


“I had my first appointment with Heather today and just had to say what a great job she did on my mani/pedi. She was very professional and even gave good suggestions for home care that she thought would be beneficial. I highly recommend her.”


“Heather is so knowledgeable about nail and nail care. I had a mani/pedi there and felt very pampered. I also appreciate that she is very hygienic and safety conscious.”


“Heather is very knowledgeable about her products and the business in general. She did a great job on my mani and is a real sweetie!! Give her a try, you won't be disappointed.”
