I was so excited when HC LuxSpa popped up in Selfridges, it looks lush and they do amazing gel nails and hand treatments. I was stalking them for a a while on twitter and instagram and knew I needed to visit. So when they contacted me about going in I jumped at the chance! 

I wasn't really sure what treatment to have so the lovely Lauren said she would show me a bit of everything which sounded perfect! 

So first I picked which colour I was going to have, there's so many different ones to choose from. The Morgan Taylor polishes that they use look like really good quality and like I say come in such a variety of colours, the bottle is a really generous size aswell. I decided to go for Posh which Lauren said was quite a popular colour at the moment. It matches my Thomas Sabo Bracelet and my Olivia Burton watch perfectly. 

Then Lauren prepped my nails, filed sorted out my cuticles. She soaked my nails in the salt of the earth AROMASALT which smells amazing. They are the only place in the UK to use salt of the earth products in their manicures. She used an amazing tool for my cuticles and I have to say this is so good, I could actually see the cuticles being removed, i've never had this done before during a manicure. She then exfoliated my hands and also gave me an amazing hand massage.  This is all included in the express manicure aswell but its just a quick massage however they still spend time on you're cuticles. So still well worth the money if your in a hurry, 

Next was the IBX treatment - This month (October 2014) you can get a free IBX treatment on top of any gel polish manicure. I would totally recommend it, I think my nails felt stronger as soon as she put it on. It's supposed to strengthen the nails and make them grow. It also gives a better finish to your gel nails. It's normally only £10 on top of a treatment. She applied 3 coats of this so again well worth the money!

Next was the gel colour, I chose Posh which was this gorgeous natural pinky/mink shade. It's just gorgeous! I've had so many compliments about the colour. I was so happy with the finish. My nails look very clean and I just love the colour so much. I was very happy with my treatment and I am actually obsessed, I can't wait to go back. I can honestly say I will be going back regularly for my nails, I normally have gels anyway and would rather go to HC LuxSpa and have this lovely service and quality finish. 

To have an express manicure and gel polish finish it would cost £25 + an extra £10 for IBX treatment. I normally pay about £25 and get no where near this standard of finish so would much rather return to HC LuxSpa in the future.
