This place is all about making you feel beautiful, feminine and sophisticated. There are some women who always look ‘finished’, who step out of their house and look like everything in their outfit, their appearance, their style has just come together in harmony as opposed to the rushed quick-I’m-late-again look most of us end up with.
Nails are that little detail that can make so much of a difference. I was never into ‘getting my nails done’; I couldn’t see the point of paying someone to do something I was capable of doing myself. But I have to say, the first time I tried it I found that suddenly my polish wasn’t chipping after one round of washing up and my nails had a chic shine that made me want to get even more Italian and gesticulate all day long. I was distractedly bringing my fingertips into every conversation.
It’s only after you’ve had a professional treatment in a place like this, where they fawn over you and buff and polish away all your flaws, that you realise how ‘on show’ our hands and feet are throughout the day. This is the perfect place to go when you need a pick-me-up, when you deserve to be pampered; when your jeans don’t fit properly, you’re having a bad hair day and your foundation won’t cover those pesky blemishes… nails can work for everyone. These lovely ladies will take you into their little haven and remind you why feeling beautiful is, in this case, refreshingly easy.
