The Perfect Manicure at Polished Dulwich


Hey Guys,

Now, manicures aren't something I tend to do very often, but that might need to change after experiencing the perfect manicure at Polished DulwichI wrote about my last experience at Polished, where I had the pleasure of experiencing a mani-pedi combo. This time I was back for the gel manicure...




I love visiting Polished, on its cosy residential street which connects Herne Hill with East Dulwich. The decor is ultra girly-chic, the perfect hang-out for nails and a natter. Pink and pastels are the staple colour palette in this salon, which is probably what inspired my choice of nail colour...





Gel Polish Manicure

"A Classic Pedicure with a Gel Polish guaranteed to last for two weeks without dulling, chipping or smudging."

Gel manicures can be extremely useful during the colder months, for my nails especially! I find they split and crack until I am left with a hand of stubby, broken tips.
Not only can they be a great protection from the cold, but they last up to two weeks (when maintained well) so give the impression of having your shiz together, without having to literally have your shiz together; it's brilliant! Here I am typing away on a Sunday evening, chocolate wrappers to my rights, hair a frizzy mess, candles burning to cover the smell of my shower-less body, BUT my nails - my nails look amazing! 





I went for classic pink-nude shade inspired by the decor. I was able to choose from a range of Gelish paints. "She's My Beauty" was perfect with "My Jewels Keep Me Warm as a feature nail for my ring fingers.
Sindy expertly applied my manicure using a UV lamp to cure the gel in place. I even got a dreamy hand massage at the end which was honestly the best part!




What do you think?

Thank you to Michelle and Sindy for inviting me back and for my amazing manicure!
