Fab Nails in a New York Minute – The Chelsea Day Spa

Claire Gratzke visits The Chelsea Day Spa on fashionable
King’s Road, Chelsea, for a quick fix New York mani and pedi.

The Chelsea Day Spa is spread across two floors in a townhouse building with two treatment rooms, an express blow-dry bar with two pods, and a nail bar with four stations. This inner city haven offers services such as waxing therapy, massage therapy, body treatments, spray tanning and facials. But I was here to have my nails perfected, NYC style.

I relaxed into one of the comfortable chairs, while an expert nail technicians began with the pedicure. First my feet were soothed in a warm foot bath, before the nails were filed and shaped. My therapist moved on to some in depth cuticle work, before moisturising and finally applying a polish of my choice.

While my sparkly new tootsies where drying, we moved on to the manicure. Again, my fingers were left to soak before a file and shape was carried out. My cuticles were perfected and hands deeply nourished with a moisturising hand massage, before having the same polish as my toes expertly applied. I was too busy chatting to my fabulous therapist, but the spa also provides plenty of magazines as well as episodes of Sex and The City to enjoy alongside light refreshments.

New York Manicures at The Chelsea Day Spa start from only £18, or £40 for a Manicure & Pedicure.

And here is the fabulous end result:
