Nail Service Review: Looks Salon, Saket, Delhi

It’s been a while since I have posted huh? Well, I have been travelling. And I went to Delhi. Now since I was there for a couple of days, I did a few things. Of course, I did consume an insane amount of food. How do people in Delhi even try and stay skinny? And then I went over to the salons everyone told me about and did reviews. Here’s a review of the Looks Salon in Saket. Looks is one of the popular salons in the Delhi / Gurgaon area and pretty much every popular place you go to ends up having Looks, Affinity and Geetanjali, literally next to each other. I went to Looks first. But don’t worry (not that you were, because who worries about that?) I have covered the others as well. The Space Look, we know. Delhi has no space constraints. So obviously, this salon was big. A little bit like a labyrinth with tiny passageways to I don’t know mysterious hair treatments but big nonetheless. I went to the …

Nail Service Review: Myyra, A Taskbob Doorstep Beauty Service

There are a lot of salons out there. You know, your neighbourhood salon, the fancy salon and a salon that’s around the corner and basically where your mum goes. Now, with the many apps, there are many salons in here as well. By in here, I mean, in your house. There are many apps willing for you to click on their service and they will send their ladies along to clean you up good. And this can go many ways but experimenting isn’t always fun. You already know how I am not a big fan of home services. (?) Recently, I was invited to an event where I got a hand massage and because I was greedy, I went for round two and got some polish as well. At the event, the Powai-based startup introduced us to their latest service – Myyra – a beauty on call service. I invited them over for a review and here’s how that went. Space My home – amazing if you must know but I am not going to …

Nail Service Review: Saks Hair and Beauty, Bandra

Guys, my feet are starting to look like they belong to someone else. Possibly, an ogre. I had this ugly whitish skin along the heel, due to lack of moisturization but really, not cool. And also my nails were growing in different directions and basically doing their own thing. I also have a friend who has hands (lucky her) that needed some TLC. So we headed to the part of town with much swag- Bandra. Bandra has a lot of salons. I assume this is because it’s where the hairy people with lots of beauty issues live. I mean they have more salons per capita than people. I may be exaggerating here a little bit. I did a lot of searching on the internet for good nail salons and Google kept leading me astray by throwing up results of places that do nail art. I just wanted a damn good nail service. Anyhoo, we settled on Saks Hair and Beauty. The Space Saks Hair and Beauty comes from the UK or so they will have …

4 manicure trends you want on your nails

Let’s consider this for a moment. You use your hands to eat, to hold anything at all, to make uncool ‘v’ signs when taking and picture and to clean your bottom. With them being such multi-taskers, it’s crime to be doing them up in unflattering shades or have chipping nail polish on them. So head to the salon, cut, file, polish and clean them. After that, I give you four nail polish trends that are a rage right now that you can show your manicurist and ask him/her to replicate. The Reverse manicure It’s gorgeous and everyone who’s anyone is flaunting it. A reverse manicure is like a French manicure but done with other way. Which means the area where the nail and cuticle meet is where a contrasting colour is applied and then the entire nail is coated with another colour. You can make triangle at the base, a swish, anything at all. You can even use glitter there. It’s awesome. Have a look. The Ombre manicure Ombre is what a gradient looks like. …
