Today I was lucky enough to visit a fab salon in Stockport called Preen. I actually know one of the owners and what an amazing nail technician she is but I hadn’t been into the salon for the full-blown PREEN experience. I had a full set of acrylic nail extensions done- they do not use drills or harmful chemicals they place a silicone form around your natural nail then build and shape a whole new nail in whatever shape you wish. Now if your nails or cuticles are thin or damaged this will hurt slightly but it will allow your natural nail to grow in healthier underneath and they do not lift. Mine were in pretty bad shape so when I go in for my infills I’ll do a full report on their progress.
I went for a gel polish in a taupey, nude shade on my almond/stiletto nails which I usually stick to for work but I couldn’t resist a little bit of bling. I had a marble nail art design done on my fourth finger nail. This was basically a white, gelish polish set and then freehand black was drawn on and smudged very cleverly into a marble effect. They will pretty much replicate any design you want including Disney themed nails, crystal designs or bespoke freehand and the selection of colours is never-ending.
The salon is utterly gorgeous with a mint and copper decor running throughout, they offer a full range of treatments which can be enjoyed with a complimentary latte and a muffin and all the therapists are very thorough and professional. If you are in the area or in Manchester for a party this place is 100 percent worth a visit- lashes, blow drys, make-up and spray tans- it’s all available by appointment. I am now a regular customer and a very satisfied one.
My nails were £35 pounds- full price list is on the website.
