Everything you need to know about NailSpa Experience Salon!

Overall Rating:

5 stars (out of 5)

Services I Tried:

Gel Manicure, Rs. 1,250 and Vino Therapy Pedicure Rs. 1,000.

I’m incredibly obsessive when it comes to how a nail tech performs my gel manicure. It drives me crazy when they leave a gap on the nail bed between the polish and cuticle. I mean, doesn’t that makes your mani look like it’s already grown out? I did not have this problem with Nail Spa Experience. I let them know my concern beforehand, and they performed exactly as I requested. My only suggestion: Ask the nail tech to clean up polish on the skin after your manicure is complete.

Ambiance:

One of the first things I noticed when entering Nail Spa Experience was that (unlike most salons), there were no overwhelming chemical fumes. The salon accommodates three pedicure chairs (with a built-in massager…yessss), four manicure tables, and one chair for hair services.

Cleanliness:

All tools are cleaned with a hygienic sterilizer.

Colour Range:

I only do nude or black nail polish, so was a bit disappointed when I couldn’t find a proper nude gel to match my skin tone. However, the store manager mentioned that if there’s ever a requested colour that the salon doesn’t carry, they typically order within the week. So, if you can’t find what you’re looking for, just ask!

In-And-Out or Relax-And-Unwind:

The gel manicure was fast (20-30 minutes) while the Vino Pedicure took longer (menu says 45 minutes but lasted 1.5 hours…and trust me, not complaining).

Nail Colour To Try:

Miss Nails Matte in 10 (nude)

Recommended Nail Tech:

Ritikesh

Must-Try Service:

Vino Therapy Pedicure for Rs. 1,000 is worth every penny. I’ve been a beauty editor for five years, and this was honestly the best pedicure I’ve ever received in my entire life. I walked in with some pretty scary looking tootsies and they looked completely different afterwards. The service was incredibly pampering, relaxing and thorough. Never has any nail tech (Ritikesh) given my feet such attention and care. My feet had never felt so clean, smooth, and well-manicured ever before. The Vino Therapy Pedicure includes moisturizing of the cuticles, soaking feet in warm water, filing nails, cutting cuticles, exfoliating heels, the scrubbing of legs and feet, a relaxing massage (they even dimmed the lights), a leave-on moisturizing treatment (10-15 minutes), and are then painted.

Lasting Power:

Unfortunately, yes. My gel manicure chipped on the seventh day. It was minor enough for me to chalk it up to circumstance and book another appointment. After two weeks, my pedicure is still going strong.

Returning Customer:

Yes. Am planning to bring my mom and treat her to the Vino Pedicure.

Manicure, pedicure, gel manicure, nail extensions, nail art, hair (cuts, styling, colouring, straightening, treatments), eyelash extensions, massage (foot, neck, head, back), and organic treatment options.
