Looking for a great place to get a mani or pedi? What about a salon that offers a cosy atmosphere where you can sip coffee, tea or cocktails whilst chatting with a friend?
If you find yourself nodding your head, then scheduling in a 'mani and mocha' date is a must and I know just the place!
A friend and I recently caught up at London Grace, Putney for a shellac manicure and hot drinks times two! Whilst the wind was howling outside, we were snug and warm inside the cosy, pastel-toned interior of the salon on Putney High Street.
The great thing about this nail bar is that it is also a cocktail bar....I mean it really doesn't get any better than this! The menu includes a range of cocktails, teas, coffees and non-alcoholic beverages so you can sip away whilst being pampered.
It was an evening appointment and the salon was buzzing - clearly a popular spot for busy Londoners who want to fit in a catch-up and a manicure after work or simply want to treat themselves after a hectic week. And London Grace accommodates for the busy Londoner so well, staying open until 9pm most evenings and until 10pm on Thursdays and Fridays.
With quirky named services such as ‘Stark Naked’ and 'Hunky Dory,' there's something for everyone, and you can choose between normal nail polish and gel. I say 'normal' but really, the London Grace nail polishes are not your average varnishes at all. They are in fact cruelty free and contain no chemicals, so a wonderful alternative for those passionate about a healthier mani.
You can also reserve a table to a party, like for a girls' night or bridal party pampering as there is plenty of room to accommodate for a group.
After a busy week at work, what better way to wind down and bring in the weekend than with a glass of bubbles and a girlfriend - catch up on the week's gossip, prep your paws and fuel up on some delicious cocktails before a dinner or night out?
I will definitely be back! And I'm adding 'making my way through the nail polish colour palette at London Grace' to my list of goals for the year.
