Keyboard calluses, nail nibbling and rope burns (don’t ask) mean that the Big Deal team are unlikely to enjoy careers as hand models anytime soon.
Which is why we are terribly tempted by today’s Big Deal on the Ultimate Nail Package at the recently refurbished Residence in Glasgow’s West End.
Day Spa in Victorian townhouse
Run by Sarah-Jane Hunter, winner of the Health and Fitness Consultant of the Year at last year’s Scottish Health and Beauty Awards, The Residence is a luxurious, Grade A listed, four storey, Victorian townhouse dedicated to relaxation.
Recently, the surroundings have been refurbed to make it even more comfortable than before. Put simply, this great day spa offers a deluxe environment in which to relax, be pampered, meet friends and take advantage of the excellent health and wellbeing services.
This enviable Big Deal starts off in the spa’s reception lounge where you can sink into a glass of prosecco and a selection of cakes.
From there, you will be taken to a treatment room to enjoy either a deluxe manicure or pedicure. Each treatment will be finished with an application of Shellac or Gel; again, the choice is yours.
Both Shellac and Gel nails have their loyal fans and choosing between them isn’t always easy. Shellac goes on like a high gloss polish but is ultra-quick-drying and free from chips and smudges. The Gel range offers a wider variety of finishes.
Paraffin wax treatment
Whether you choose a manicure or a pedicure, your nails will look fantastic by the end of your pamper treat. Nails are filed to the desired shape, buffed and soaked. Your cuticles will be tidied up and then a hand/foot scrub and mask is applied to leave your hands or feet feeling soft and smooth.
Your spa experience ends with a paraffin wax hand treatment to soften your hands.
Enjoy some me-time
This Big Deal would make a fantastic treat with friends or simply a little me-time in your busy schedule.
