18.04.2018- London Loves: Skinny Dip Nail Club, Covent Garden

Of all of the little luxuries in life, there are few which, for me at least, feel like more of a treat than getting my nails done. I’m not the most proficient with paining them myself, and as someone who was truly terrible at art when I was at school, I’ve realised that no matter how hard I try, anything paint related and I are more or less destined not to get on! My lack of ambidexterity aside, having a professional manicure is a lovely way of treating myself, especially as it offers the opportunity to escape from the office too- two birds, one stone etc. Sadly, I recently discovered that my salon of choice (Cheeky in High Holborn) has closed down, so I’ve since kept a beady eye peeled for an alter native. Stepping into the breach, a destination which I visited for the first time last week- Skinny Dip London’s Nail Club:

With decor this on trend, it’s hard to see how you can go wrong, right? Amidst a cosy millennial pink salon which occupies the downstairs of the Skinny Dip store in Covent Garden, the Nail Club offers a plethora of treatments, as well as exclusive discount incentives for members. Settling for a simple file and polish, I was really impressed at how speedily the treatment progressed, as well as the bounty of colours on offer. Whilst the finished manicure might not have been as long lasting as some of those which I’ve had in the past, for ease and convenience this is definitely a great option, especially as it’s only a stone’s throw away from work. I’m sure I’ll be re-booking soon! 

Where are your go-to beauty destinations?

  1. Sad to hear that Cheeky has closed. This salon looks like an ideal go-to for when I'm next in London! x
