Their chairs are super-comfy too and do a great massage.
There is also a fantastic cafe next door called La Petit Cafe which does great coffee and croissants. I naturally dropped my croissant on the floor because I am clumsy but my coffee survived thankfully.
Now I would just like to take the time to slip in some pedicure advise. If your salon does not clean each foot basin and equipment properly, your feet may get sick. You should check this prior to making a booking. I know from experience that Nail Expressions do a great job and there is a reason I keep going back. They do a very thorough clean in between each pedicure. Also, if your water is cold - say something. It's so lush to have your feet soaked in lovely warm water with blue bath salts and you should experience this too. The staff won't mind, they want you to enjoy your pedicure.
I chose the colour Pink Friday because it just stood out to me and I thought it would be quite sheer like most pinks are (I was wrong, but not scared to admit it). For the first time in a long time I also chose to have the same colour on my toes and fingers. I usually prefer a nice mismatch so that I can try more colours too.
Since Y's shellac was taking much longer than my mani-pedi, I had plenty of drying-time. There's nothing better than a nice girly chat with a little pampering on the side.
Obviously, with me being me I managed to chip one nail straight away but I fixed myself. I absolutely love the colour and am thinking of buying myself a bottle. Or maybe I'll make this my signature salon colour.
The manicure and pedicure costs $40 (normally mani is $20 and pedi $28). For the shellac mani-pedi it costs $70. They have also just opened a new salon in Maroubra but I haven't been there yet, I prefer my local salon of course.
What did you do on IWD? When did you last have a pampering session? Xx
