Next to shoes and bags and clothes, nails are a girl’s best friend!
The older we get the fussier we become about the quality of services we expect when getting our glam on.
Unfortunately, Nairobi can be a hustle when trying to find places to get nails done! From fake online nail parlours that don’t deliver what they have on their Instagram pages to technicians who do a shoddy job at customer service, we are tired.
It’s now time to get the right nail parlours that treat you like the queen that you are. Thank God these places actually exist in Nairobi and we rounded up a few that will surely deliver on what they promise.
A number of beauty and nail parlors have caught our eye particularly due to their world-class standards.
What’s even better is how the often young, nail technicians, use their Instagram accounts to show off their work and market themselves. Am I the only one who has a bunch of these saved in my archives?
If you’ve been eyeing someone’s nails and perhaps too shy to ask where they got them done or possibly doubted if they were done in Nairobi; we’ve got you covered!
Here are some of the places to check out.
Phoina Nail Bar
As an extention to phoina house of beauty, this establishment has made a name for itself in the beauty industry.
If you haven’t heard of Phoina, are you eve a true Nairobian?
Luxe Nails Parlour
This is the place to go if you are into bold and artsy nails. All your nail worries will be dealt with by the friendly staff at this salon on the 8th dloor in Bihi Towers, Moi Avenue, Town.
It has been a favourite for most of our celebs. From natural hair blogger Sheila Ndinda to model Sheila Kanini, Luxe has proved to be the best place to get your natural and even acrylics done
L’Africaine Hair Salon
It is located in Hurlingham and though it’s a bit pricey, you will love all the pampering you will get in this place. Totally worth every penny.
Posh Palace Kenya
There was so much hype about the opening of Betty Kyalo’s salon and it’s clear why. You definitely won’t be disappointed by their service.
Betty however isn’t part of the ownership anymore as the salon’s owner Susan Kaittany took back full ownership through a nasty breakup.
It is still the ultimate place to be and thriving at it.
Urban Nails KE
When people say they did not come to play, this nail bar is an exact representation! Their work is impeccable guaranteed to have you going back.
We all know that body massages are a great way to relax and rejuvenate your nerves, but sometimes all it takes to relax is a hand and foot massage. Manicures and pedicures are a great way to relax while improving the look and feel of your hands and feet.
If you’re feeling stressed, some of us tend to pick at our cuticles, leaving them dry, cracked and bleeding. Plus, having great looking nails can always help to put a smile on your face, making stress levels decrease.
Ask the average woman what she wants out of spa or salon service and chances are she will say relaxation! Relieve your stress and experience some valuable ‘me time’ at your favorite spa and you will notice the difference not only in your hands but also in your mood. Follow it with some coffee with your girls and voilà! Here’s your recipe for a perfect girls day out.
