Treatment: Shellac mani-pedi
Price: $450 (manicure); $100 extra (nail art); $550 (pedicure)
Time: 1.25 hours
The vibe: A fresh white space, big comfy chairs and an abundance of natural light make Flawless one of the more luxurious manicure spots in town.
When to go: Pamper your paws about 24 to 48 hours before the wedding to ensure those beautiful talons hold up.
The gist: We settled on a Shellac white base with a subtle silver glitter accent. Though more time consuming, the glittery finish added a nice touch without feeling gaudy. For the pedicure, we kept it simple with a few coats of CND polish in “Be Demure” – an elegant pale pink.
How’s the service? The team is attentive and thoughtful, pointing us towards a host of design ideas and polish options. The array is impressive, including a lineup of OPI, CND, MoYou and the healthier Bio Seaweed Gel.
About the snacks: Choose from organic tea or a glass of bubbly. If you’re hungry, there’s a selection of healthy snacks on hand – think chia bars, fruit bars and coconut chips.
Best part: All Flawless treatments come with a 24-hour guarantee for normal polish and a one-week guarantee for Shellac manicures and pedicures – a huge plus for brides worried about chips or smudges.
