The pilot reported that the approach which ATC required was very steep and slow. Consequently, she forgot to lower the nose gear and the aircraft landed on the main gear only. The pilot had flown only two flights in the past three months. She was distracted with the unusually close approach and workload in a relatively high traffic area. It was discovered after that the gear warning horn and light were unserviceable.
