I got polished!Posted: September 20, 2012
I keep my fingernails short. It’s my leftover habit from years of playing the piano. On the odd occasion, I’d try to beautify my short nails by painting them. On the even odder occasion, I’ll have someone else paint my nails at a salon or spa.
FYI: On the cheapo side, a manicure and pedicure combo costs $35 in Toronto. But, there are better deals at better salons. I got my $25 Buytopia deal at Vikaspa in fancy Yorkville (check it out while it’s still hot).
– Danielle, my esthestian, was beyond nice. She was insistent on my comfort throughout the 2-hour appointment. I didn’t feel rushed even though it was her last appointment of the day.
– It was clean, and this is important.
– Prime time location that’s easy to get to.
The not so good:
– The nail polish selection is on the small side. But, I was told that they keep it that way to make it easier on the customer to make a decision on polish colour.
– The lack of a real spa feel if you are into that.
Would I go back?
– My nail polish usually chips off within the first minute. But, I managed to keep it relatively chip-free that night from the salon –> Hemingway’s for drinks with friends –> the TTC ride back home.
– I’d go back. In fact, I already booked my next appointment in October.
Thank you @valtorontogirl for this special treat!
