Why Get Polished?

Highly Qualified

Our staff and technicians are trained the Get Polished way to ensure they can deliver the highest standard of service and care to you.

Local Australian Family Owned

The family have resided in the Hunter for over 15 years and was one of the first to open a beauty salon inside a major shopping center in Kotara. With over 100 years of combined experience, Get Polished is able to provide you the service and quality you deserve.

Trusted Brands

We use high quality, well-known brands and products such as OPI, SNS, Shellac and many more.

Environmentally Friendly

Where possible, we strive to use products that are environmentally friendly eg. biodegradable. We do not use plastic covers on our pedicure basins that contributes to 300 million tons of plastic dumped into rubbish tips each year. We scrub thoroughly the basins after each use using hospital grade disinfectants.

Australian Department of Health Compliance

One of Get Polished core values is hygiene. We frequently touch base with local councils and the Australian Department of Health to further meet requirements and stay up to date with changes.

Buy Australian Products

Where possible, we source local Australian manufactured products. From Polishes to Furniture.

Flexible Hours

We stay open late till 8pm on Wednesday and Thursday evenings for your convenience

EMA Friendly

Our acrylic liquids do NOT contain MMA which is a harmful chemical commonly found in acrylic liquids. Instead, we use liquids that contain EMA which is deemed much safer for use in the beauty industry and approved by local councils.

High Standards

Hygiene and cleanliness is of up-most importance at Get Polished. Our tools and equipment are sterilized to Australian Department of Health standards and we use disposable items wherever possible. Our customer’s health and well-being is paramount to our business.

Great Experience

What a great experience getting my eyebrows micorbladed from Jane, she was professional and I'm absolutely in love with my "new" eyebrows. Not only were they bald in some spots, there was no shape either. But now they have the best shape, have the thickness I have wanted in a long time. No more drawing my eyebrows on every morning!!! Thankyou Jane...

Mimi did microblading on my eyebrows and Wow i love them!!! My brows are naturally thin so I wanted them to be just a bit fuller but still natural looking. Words can’t explain how pleased I am with Mimi’s work. I couldn’t have wished for a better outcome. The whole process was easy, she was very easy to talk to and honest about what would look best. The numbing cream meant it was totally pain free. I’m so glad I did it and would totally recommend her.

I can’t be happier. The staff are always are so friendly and accommodating



I started getting my nails done at get polished when it opened at Waratah due to several bad experiences with a previous salon I had been attending, and I can't be happier. The staff are always are so friendly and accommodating which makes a great first impression each time. The salon is spacious and lovely and clean with no offensive smell that some of the other salons have. My nails always look amazing and I get very few breakages and lifting due to the great job that the get polished team consistently do. All of the add on services they have introduced into the salon are great to have in the same location. Thanks Jane and the team for making me polished �

The salon is super clean

I’ve been going to Get Polished Waratah since the day it opened and wouldn’t even consider going to another The staff are so obliging and super friendly. We all tend to pick our ladies as a return client as I have done but I can honestly say I’m happy with seeing any of the staff if my girl isn’t available

The salon is super clean and being a qualified Beautian myself I know how important that is The pricing is comparable with others but the service is stand alone Congratulations on your new shop well done 👍
