Groupon.com has done me right again! I snagged a deal for a spa pedicure and Shellac manicure for only $35 at a relatively new spa called Spa on the Boulevard. Located on Virginia Beach Blvd in Virginia Beach (near Lynnhaven Rd), this small spa packs a huge punch with its serene decor and friendly service. Shame on me for being a tad bit late, but Katie hurried me right in to get my pedi started. Small talk about family and work life made the time fly by.
Somehow Katie talked me right out of my comfort zone of color, and right into a bright hot fushchia pink that perfect for sunny weather and my sun-kissed skin tone. What can I say, she was right! SCORE!
I’m amazed by the Shellac polish. The pros: lasts up to 14 days without chipping, keeps the “shiny” look, does no damage to your natural nails, goes on just like regular nail polish, no drying time at all. The con: you do have to remove with pure acetone. But I must say that I truly enjoyed the one-on-one service that I got from Katie. I didn’t have to say “you missed this” or “ouch, that hurt” or anything. She truly took her time and ensured that her work was done to the utmost quality, often asking for my feedback to be certain I was happy with what she was doing. And she shared that they will soon have Gelish shellac polish in soon, which has more variety of colors to choose from. I’ll be back!
