So after a Sunday that I can in no way describe as lazy (think car wash, groceries, errands, special dog food locating, park, bike ride and laundry) I decided it was time to treat myself and get a mani-pedi combo. This is one of my favorite things as afterwards my feet feel new and my nails are super shiny (I think there is something so polished about well ummmm polished nails).

I headed to my favorite local on Lygon St, Carlton, Elegant Tips and Toes. I love this place, it’s clean, bright, the staff are friendly, helpful and never cringe no matter how long it’s been since I saw them last! The Salon uses mostly OPI polishes with a few China Glaze as well. They usually have the latest colors with a giant selection of normal shades along with a few pop shades.

You begin by being ushered to select your colors then settle into your massage chair, soak your feet and flip through a recent Harpers – bliss. During the spa pedi they shape the nails, cut cuticles, scrape foot (something I could never do to myself but love) massage and scrub feet and legs and then get all polished up. I then moved on in my pretty lil fake flip flops (I forgot to bring my own) to have my finger nails spruced up. Again a full service with cuticles, buff and massage before polish. My lovely nail technician even helped me find a new colour when my first choice looked horrid.

The salon is currently in the middle of a gentle refurbishment with new wall paper and the “best on the market” chairs coming soon. You can tell they want it to be a great salon and from all the happy patrons every time I go they are doing a good job.

The salon is one of three that I am aware of with another further up Lygon in Brunswick East and one on Brunswick St.

They are open until 8pm several times a week and are an easy stroll up from the city. I highly reccomened them.

Spa Pedicure and Manicure $50.
They also do acrylics and waxing.
