It’s been a while! Trying to get back into the routine of posting– the month of March totally got away from me!

If you’re a local Boston reader, you MUST go check out the new MiniLuxe at the Street in Chestnut Hill. They opened less than a week ago, so appointments are booking up quickly. I ended up going at 9am on Easter because that was literally the only time I could get! It was well worth the early morning.

The atmosphere is very polished and chic– exactly where you’d want to be for an hour of pampering. The nail bar has a huge selection of MiniLuxe’s original colors and gel-alternative upgrades that last 7-10 days. There is a small set of stations upstairs and even more downstairs, plus pedicure stations, making it feel very spacious. I had the MiniLuxe Signature Manicure, but definitely thought about adding the Paraffin mitts for my super dry hands– next time!

Another fantastic thing about MiniLuxe’s polish is that it’s “Five Free”, which means that the five known carcinogens are removed from the polish. More choices for at-home Five Free polishes onĀ Allure.com.

I ended up getting the MiniLuxe Debutante polish– perfect for Easter and throughout spring! It’s been three days and my nails are holding strong! Sadly, this is pretty impressive for me as I wash my hands frequently (hello to all my teacher friends) and play with a pretty crazy puppy each day.

Also, if you book in-store you get 10% off your next service. I’ve already booked a gel mani for a few days before a friend’s wedding in April. So excited!
