(Disclosure: I was asked to provide a review for a discount on services rendered, but as always, all opinions are my own.)
If you’ve read my blog long enough, you already know I’m kind of (ok REALLY) high maintenance. (Note: to any single guys reading, please don’t let this influence your opinion of me.) I love all things “girly;” manicures, pedicures, getting my hair done, massages- the lot.
So when I want to reward myself, I try to keep from indulging in ice cream, and tend to favour beauty treatments instead. For example, last week I did one whole day of work, so OBVIOUSLY, a reward was in order. (Note: if you’re either of my supervisors you should know I err on the side of hyperbole.) So, I treated myself to a manicure; not just any manicure- an OPI Gelcolour Overlay manicure.
Going to see Claire at Bellissima Nail Spa is like getting your nails done by a good friend; good company for a good natter and brilliant service. Claire offers OPI Gel Colours (think Shellac only by OPI) and I chose Strawberry Margarita. When I visited the salon frequently in the winter and early Spring I favoured the James Bond Skyfall Collection, which were darker, but it still being summer, I wanted a bright pink.
While I obviously love getting my nails done, I normally tend to get bored sitting and waiting. Claire made the time pass quickly as we chatted, and the Gelcolour did the rest; a few coats of polish and 60 seconds under the lamp between coats and my nails were looking awesome!
If you’re in the Glasgow area and need nail services, eyelash or eyebrow tinting, I recommend heading over to Bellissima Nail Spa (across from Tinderbox at the corner of Highburgh Road/University Avenue/Byres Road.). Claire can be reached at 0141 339 1550 or by emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bellissima Nail Spa is also on Twitter and Facebook.
(Once again though I received a discount for services rendered all thoughts and opinions belong to me.)
