It's official - the holiday countdown has begun. And what better way to wind down and ignore the perils of packing than an indulgence pre-holiday pamper? Gathering my best gal pal Lily, we made a beeline for the Cheeky Parlour in Holborn to give their Toe Shine Pedi a whirl.
Having been on my radar for quite some time - and yet never having an excuse to pop on by - Cheeky is the sister salon of the infamous Cowshed. Serving up a beauty menu of express beauty treatments (with a fully stocked bar) at seriously affordable prices, this one-stop-beauty-shop is certainly one to add to your little black book.
Priced at a snappy £26, it included the full works - file and shape, cuticle work, dead skin blitzing, exfoliation, moisturising and a lick of paint of your choosing. Settled in their sleek wooden thrones with my juicy coral varnish at the ready, my beautician quite simply worked her magic and left me with freshly painted glossy toes and feeling light as a feather.
Quite the indulgent treat, this beauty fix is an incredible offer for the super affordable rate. I honestly couldn't rate the nail girls more highly, their attention to detail from the moment they preened my god awful feet to the snazzy foot dryers next to a stack of the latest glossies - not a single trick has been missed, in fact I predict a pedi addiction on the horizon.
With a salon in both Shoreditch and Holborn, prices start from £14 for a file and paint - whaddya waiting for?
