Manic(ure) Monday: Cheeky

I'm officially back from London so it's time for some photos and travel tips. Today I want to start off with a really special experience we made in London: a manicure at Cheeky. It all started some weeks before the actual trip, when I read a post about this beauty salon in London. It sounded too good to be true: a manicure for 10£ including file, shape, paint and a free bottle of the nail polish you chose. So I made an appointment for our first evening in London. Unfortunately it was a bit stressful to find the place but wasn't that complicated in the end so that we managed to get there in time nevertheless. We got a warm welcome and were offered something to drink. While we were waiting for our manicure we could already choose the colour we wanted to have on our nails (really hard decision with so many nail polishes!) and I made use of the time to take pictures at this gorgeous place! The Cheeky parlour is located in an old industrial building but decorated with so much love and American vintage charm. As you can see on the pics the parlour is not just for manicures but also pedicures, hair styling, makeup and... eating! There was a group of really lovely and loud girls who were having a little party with a table full of yummy afternoon tea cookies, cakes and drinks.
When it comes to the manicure my friend and I were a bit disappointed because the beautician was quite messy at filing our nails and she applied a base coat, two extremely generous layers of nail polish and a top coat right after one another so that we feared the whole thing would never ever dry. After the painting we put our hands under nail polish driers which didn't seem to work too well though. So we put our nails under cold water in the restroom and as by a miracle our nails did dry and survived up to today (that has got to be because of the gorgeous quality of the nail polishes, which would normally cost 7£). Despite this little disappointment I would go back to the Cheeky parlour without hesitating and book even more treatments (and a lunch!). If you don't want to miss out on this experience on your next London trip you can book your treatment over here.

P.S. Only one street away from the parlour you can find a Byron restaurant, another place I can really recommend (but more about that in another London post).

  8. Sorry to hear that the lady who did your nails was like that! She was probably rushing which isn't appropriate for a manicure!! The place looks awesome though! Especially the mini sandwiches!

  12. Super schöner Beitrag. Bei den ganzen Nagellacken fällt die Entscheidung nicht gerade einfach. Deine Farbe gefällt mir aber schon einmal super gut.
