Oddly today I am off to get my toes blinged up with lots of teeny tiny red swarovski rhinestones by the lovely Lia of Swoon Nails in Glasgow, luckily the procedure won't set me back £110 like the Nails Inc version...gulp!
Nails Inc have unveiled that they will be rolling out the Jewellery Pedicure which was inspired by the trend for embellishment and texture as seen on the runways of S/S14. The Nails Inc Jewellery Pedicure will be available in four colourways - gold, sapphire, ruby and diamond (clear/silver) and involves a technician individually applying crystals using swarovski rhinestones in different shapes and sizes for a precise fit. The treatment is available now exclusively in Harvey Nichols London, priced at £110 for 1 hour 15 mins and will be available nationwide in Nails Inc bars at other Harvey Nichols’ from November. You can also get a Jewellery Manicure for the same effect on your nails for £80 at the same locations.
The truth is this is not a new concept nail technicians have been doing this technique for years, yes not all will use swarovski rhinestones but I can guarantee you very few will charge you £110 for the pleasure. Don't get me wrong I think the effect is visually stunning and perfect for a night on the tiles but given the price point of the Nails Inc version I can't see it being all that popular. Sorry!
What do you think? Beautiful but just too pricey or too My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding Style for you?
