A few days ago I was invited along to a press preview of a brand, spanking new nail and beauty salon in the centre of Glasgow - NAF Salon. A large and utterly instagram worthy destination situated directly across from Central Station in Glasgow, it really could not be any more conveniently located if it tired and now I have no excuse for tatty nails.
NAF Salon is the brain child of Tammy Koslowski, creator of DIY Nails decals and all round nail gal. Having met Tammy I can vouch that not only is she passionate about nails but also customer service, NAF Salon is not your run of the mill nail bar - it's friendly, relaxed yet professional with talented and knowledgeable manicurists. The idea, so I'm told was to somewhat mimic a girls night in; fun, friendly and upbeat - a concept they have nailed. Excuse the dreadful onslaught on puns (they write themselves with nail articles) but you couldn't be in safer or more talented hands.
When it comes to nails I believe life is too short not to go all out (gimme all the glitter, decals and neon please) - if I visit a nail bar or salon, you can almost bet I'm not coming home with nude nails. This time around I settled on light blue come turquoise glitter, gel overlays which were achieved using a custom blend of glitter and Gelish products - all NAF gel nail products are Gelish, a reliable and trusted brand within the nail world. The whole process was quick, pain free and dare I say it relaxing yet fun. I couldn't be more pleased with the outcome; my hands look groomed, the glitter sparkles in the light and the compliments have been coming in thick and fast.
It would be a sin of utmost proportions not to mention NAF Salon's décor - part retro glam, part modern chic/NYC cool and 100% I must show a friend photo worthy (no really check out my instagram ha!). Think funky, custom wall art, neon lights, beauty stations, a checker board floor and splashes of pastel colour everywhere. You will leave feeling a little envious that your bedroom or flat isn't quite as fabulous...or at least I did.
Despite the Pinterest ready settings, the service the price list is super reasonable - gel nails range from £20- £27 and £40 for a gel mani/pedi. I know I will be back in the near future and 100% recommend all Glasgow and surrounding area readers pop in for a visit too. I promise you will be impressed in more ways than one.
