WOW! Nails - Nail Art

Hi Everyone!! So I'm back and as promised got a new post for you! Enjoy :)

I did go through a phase where I loved nail art. I got all sorts of designs done, it was ridiculous. But since I joined the corporate world, I've toned it down a lot. Turning up to work with big yellow smiley-faces all over your nails can make a mundane day at your desk much better, but just doesn't look right. So I stick to plain ol' nail-polish, but I still rock my BRIGHT colours.

WOW! Nails offer nail-art manicure services (and other manicure options) over at their concession stand at the L'Espace store in Lagos. I went over to the launch in June (yes, I know it is August, but I have to try out these places before I can recommend it to you ladies), and I was really impressed with the design choices they had on display. Their nail polish selection is quite a mish mash of very familiar products: Topshop, Barry M, Chanel, Essie, etc. I think in order for you guys to enjoy this post it needs to be a little picture heavy. So I'll make like a magazine and keep my rambling to a minimum on this one. Have a look at the pictures.

The pictures below are my own nails showing off the little nail stick-ons I got.

I was rocking a Gel manicure that day so couldn't get any nail-art done, opted for two little 'bow' stick-ons on my ring fingers.

I thought they were cute :). And they lasted a week, which is REALLY good for stick-ons.

You'd be pleased to know that WOW! nails also offer Shellac/Gel manicures for N1700. As far as I know, they are currently the cheapest in Lagos.

You can also watch a selection of dvds on their mini dvd players, while you get your manicure done.

WOW! Nails only offer manicure services and it's not a full manicure just a little nail-tidy - neaten cuticles, shape, buff that sort of thing. Definitely no pedicures. So their services are perfect for when you need a change of polish between your routine mani/pedi appointments.

Here are a few services (along with prices) offered at WOW! Nails:

  • Basic Manicure (shape, buff, polish & cuticle oil) - N1500
  • Acrylic Nails - Full Set N3000, Acrylic Removal N500, Add on Art N700
  • Gel Polish - N1700 
  • Leopard Print Manicure - N2500
  • Crackle Polish Manicure - N2500
  • Half Moon Manicure - N2500
  • Rainbow Tips Manicure - N2500
These are not all the services they offer, just pop in to find out more. Walk-ins are very welcome and appointments can also be made in advance.

So head on over to L'Espace by LPM and get some funky nail art done! Don't forget to come back and let me know how the experience went.

19A Olosa Street, Off Karimu Kotun Street,

Do you love a bit of nail-art? Or are you just a regular polish kind of girl?
