I’ve heard some bad stories about people getting their nails done in different parts of Europe – it’s just not the same as home. So I wasn’t expecting much but at the least I would have a pretty color on my nails and toes – and instant way to feel pretty and like a lady (especially after 2+ months of walking on my poor overused feet!). Well, was I in for a surprise or what!?
I arrived for my 5:10 appointment and it didn’t start out too well. I was waiting (with my feet turning into prunes in the water) for about half an hour before my pedicure began. Eva was my nail specialist and from the moment she sat down, everything changed and I knew this would be a different kind of pedicure. After 15 minutes, she was still on my first foot, meticulously shaping, filing and buffing each nail. Then the exfoliation began and she would touch my heel (with gloves on) and then keep scrubbing until she was satisfied with the softness of my foot. She took her time (too much time in NYC standards, but I had no plans and was loving it!) and we chatted in Spanish the whole time. My toes and fingernails came out perfect and it was well worth the time and money spent! My feet feel refreshed and ready to go site seeing for another three weeks (or months!).
