Imagine a New York manicure completed in just 30 minutes leaving you with gorgeous glossed nails for the minimal cost of £12.50. Now think The Chelsea Day Spa. For my treatment of the week I put it to the test.
I head to the day spa located on the Kings Road, London on a Thursday evening to find a slightly hidden town house on the corner of the King’s Road, entrance on Smith Street. I wonder up stairs expecting the usual celeb-like spa, but to my surprise I was welcomed to something a little different. A little quirky yet quaint, smart, clean and cosy. Ideal for the 'Carrie' type who is always on the go. I am greeted by my nail technician who takes my coat, and before I know it I am sat down with a glass of lemon in water to detox, while she removed my pre-mani polish.
On the TV - Sex & The City. Feel like 'Carrie', so I sit back and let my technician pamper my nails with a soak, cut, file and shape. Following that she gets down to the cuticle work with a mini hand massage to relax. Using Jessica nail polish, my technician paints my nails scarlet red and I am ready to go. Four days down the line there is still not a chip in sight.
Highly recommended - The whole experience reminded me of New York. There is always an easy-access nail salon within a two-block radius purposely built for those on the go in need of a cheap and cheerful manicure. Visit The Chelsea Day Spa online for further info.
