Celebrity Nail Artist – yep, that’s a thing – Naomi Yasuda gives good nail. Madonna thinks so. As do Rita Ora, Lady Gaga, and Kesha. She created the Helmut Lang logo nail for the brand’s SS18 collection, that helped herald in a new era of nail art love.
And trust me, these are nothing – go check her instagram and be, like, WOW!
A few years ago we were all walking around with stripes, shapes or drawings on our nails, and then we all sort of stopped. Nails went back to being one colour, or bare, even. But the time for that has gone, and more effort is required in the nail department. But let’s be honest, fiddling about with nail polish and striping brushes is a bit of a faff, yeah? Who can honestly paint the nails on their dominant hand properly?!
So, time to get to your nearest salon, and get in on the nail art trend with a professional. Bare nails, or mono colour just won’t cut it this summer. There are loads of fab salons on 5pm Spa & Beauty offering nail art at great prices – or just a manicure, if you’re still working up to having your name, or perhaps a flamingo, or some cacti painted on your talons.
At Nails by Mei Wai in Hair by Hanlon in Glasgow’s West End, you can get a simple manicure from £12, using OPI polish, Gel polish using ORLY FX from £20, or go large, and indulge yourself in Gel or Arcrylic Extensions, with all the glitterm colour and nail art you want, from £35.
At Flory’s Beauty Studio in Glasgow’s Southside, it’s £23 for a Gel Nail Extension Manicure with Shellac and Nail Art, booking through 5pm Spa and Beauty.
I Love Nails in Finnieston has some brilliant offers through 5pm – a luxury manicure, including a soak, file, cuticle, work, scrub, mask, hand massage and plosh is from £20. They offer Acrylic nails from £20 – prices go up depending on the finish you want, but who wouldn’t mind paying more for a flamingo?!
At USA Nails + Beauty in Anniesland, there are offers as low as £13 on Gel Polish. The salon uses OPI and Shellac, and it’s a friendly, modern nail bar.
If you can’t decide on what colour to paint your nails, paint them ALL the colours! We love this look created at Goddess Day Spa in Paisley. Nails in fantastic glittery ice-cream colours. Perfect for spring.
Keep checking the 5pm Spa & Beauty site for all the nail offers available this week and beyond.
