As you will know from my previous post, I was in Edinburgh last week visiting Harvey Nichols. The store has a lot of great new things happening just now (including an overhaul of the restaurant early 2012) and most recently is the relaunch of the Nails Inc Champagne Nail Bar.
The Nail Bar has been opened up and two extra treatment stations have been added in order to create more space and really make the most of the great atmosphere provided by the beauty emporium that is the first floor. I love the new look; it’s chic but fun and that can often be a hard combination to achieve. But then again, Nails Inc are renowned for creating fun polishes (they have just released the Gossip Girl collection as well as the magnet collection) which also come in chic, muted colours such as South Molton Street and Victoria.
We were lucky enough to be offered a complimentary treatment from the new nail bar, along with a glass of Champagne (which is standard with any treatment – totes my scene!) to enjoy while we were being pampered. The other press mostly chose gel polishes and the Gossip Girl range, but I decided to try something a little different – the Crystal Pedicure! That’s right ladies – Swarovski crystals were applied all over my big toe nail! Danielle was my nail technician and she told me that a lot of brides-to-be get the Crystal Pedicure for their big day, and that some newly engaged girls like to get their ring finger nail encrusted with crystals. Danielle applied silver polish to the rest of my toes and told me not to be afraid to change the colour as the crystals would last for a good few weeks. Overall, I think the Crystal Pedicure is really great fun, a bit different and definitely something a bit more special than your average pedi. It’s ghetto fabulous and I plan to werq it!

Many thanks to Harvey Nichols for spoiling me rotten last week.
