The promise The mermaid pedicure claims to be the ultimate luxury treatment that leaves your feet feeling soft, but also rehydrates the skin and revitalises the cuticles, restoring youth from toe to sole. The caviar massage that’s also part of the package aims to soothe aches and pains.
Step by step The second we step into this modern space with its exposed white brick walls and quirky interiors, we feel like we should be in the company of Pharrell Williams or Kanye West; it’s that cool. Our treatment begins first with us wondering why mermaids need pedicures before the ordinary routine gets underway – clean, file, scrub, cuticle clippings. Our feet are then soaked in a mush of caviar-like crystal salts, which come in a multitude of colours. After ten minutes our feet are scrubbed again with a citrus paste, massaged and then covered in a mud mask, before a final rinse. This is all concluded with a coat of polish.
The Result While the minimalist spa is known for its Japanese-style nail art, this treatment goes the extra mile in terms of pedicures. It’s a great refresh for your feet, especially if they’re often exposed to sun and sand.
