Nailed it!

The Croft Magazine // Elena Venturelli reviews brand new salon, House of Nails.

Finding a nail salon with everything that you're looking for is never an easy job - especially when on a student budget! So, instead of indecisively contemplating and worrying that it might not be quite right, my housemates and I decided to brave it and visited a new salon across the road from The Galleries in Cabot Circus, and review the place, in advance, for those days when lockdown has ended and you're desperately wanting to feel luxurious!

As we entered the salon, the stylish interior made us feel like we were really treating ourselves, and in front of us, on the wall was the largest array of colours we'd seen! Despite it being quite busy, we didn't have to wait long after we walked in. At House of Nails, the prices are cheaper than your average nail salon, despite it being the classiest any one of us had been to - so, we thought, 'why not get some pedicures too?'. We were then given fancy pedicure chairs to sit in which gave us each a full-blown back massage. As you can imagine, this was dreamy, so I tried to turn on the massage function again, but understandably, the nail technician couldn't paint my toes with the vibration on.

For our nails, we all opted for the more mum-friendly rounded tips (sadly ignoring the coffin trend!) - I will venture for longer ones next time.

We adore our new nails and we cannot wait to return and support our local bargain fund! As soon as lockdown is over, be sure to check out House of Nails at 3, Union Street, Bristol, BS1 2DD.
