The Skin and Nail Bar – Escape the Ordinary

Wednesday, 29 May 2019

If you follow me on Instagram, you will know the Skin and Nail Bar is like a second home to me. I have been going to their Durban North branch for all my waxing, facials and manis for the past two (or is it three!) years now and the team of therapists have become friends I trust to keep me preened all year round. Now they are expanding and have opened a brand spanking new salon in Salt Rock.

I was invited to their Media Launch day today which was such an honour as I hadn’t seen their new space until today. And oh boy, is it beautiful up there! I was welcomed with a glass of bubbles as I stepped into another world adored with antique charm and a touch of modern flair. The décor is refreshingly different… charming, full of character and splashed with colours. A bright neon sign declares, “escape the ordinary” and in this moment, you really feel like you have. My favourite spot must be the mani and pedi station, it reminds me of the cowshed spa at Soho House, London which I Adore. How beautiful is it?

I was treated to a Bare Naturals facial on the house. I wasn’t familiar with this brand before but was excited to learn it is all natural, contains organic ingredients where possible and is made in KZN. If you are looking for something more natural to add into your skin care routine consider supporting this fantastic local brand. I will definitely be trying out a few products in future.  

If you want to feel extra pampered or want a beautiful place to have a bridal pamper, pop into the new Skin and Nail Bar in Salt Rock. Next month a coffee shop is opening next door so it’s a win win in my books!

Ps – even Benji received a little treat from the lovely team at the Skin and Nail Bar! Look how chuffed he is.

The individuals who settle for the pieces from the table of life, the individuals who take whatever their given instead of picking what they need, the individuals who carry on with normal lives have precisely the same 24 hours in their day as the individuals who choose to take what they need from the enormous smorgasbord of life.
