A mani so strong, it will last straight through to February. Nails trimmed, shaped, and buffed, a few coats of polish will follow, before being cured under a UV lamp to keep the colour in place. Though the hand massage is most definitely my favourite bit of the manicure experience, looking down at glossy nails when typing at my keyboard feels darn fantastic. A guaranteed Monday boost, if you will. As for colour, I’m still indulging green, but dark burgundy seems to be the trend du jour (right, Meghan Markle?).Book gel manicure
These five treatments are guaranteed to perk up our mood every time
Alright, the third Monday in January is set to be the most miserable of all, and it’s coming. But, let us not premeditate glumness. Instead, let’s just plan to do something that makes us feel really, really good. For me, that’s buying a posh coffee, instead of going instant. It’s making a whole plate of potato wedges for tea. It’s ordering on ASOS (Klarna, obviously), and not filtering by ‘lowest to highest’. Oh, and it’s booking a treatment – or two – and kicking back in the salon for many hours. Join me?
