I've been living in Zurich for a while now and have, until recently, been unable to find a good nail bar. Most of them feel like a throwback to the 90's, where heavy duty nail buffers and terrifying machines are used to grind your natural nail to a pulp and then stick a fake nail on top. So when I booked my manicure at Get Nailed! I was of course a little nervous...
Get Nailed! Is located near the Opera House and is tucked away down a little side street, the first thing I noted when I entered was the very pretty and comfy little seating area and the calm and quiet atmosphere and smiley staff.
I was delighted when they offered a glass of bubbles and happily sat down and fell into easy chat with Kali (the owner) as she got to work on my nails. Not only do they use good quality utensils and minimal machinery, but they also have OPI shellac and offer the most amazing nail art. As I was having my manicure for a wedding I'm attending in Budapest over the weekend I opted for a deep red colour with just two accent nails with gold detailing, something fun but not over the top.
All in all I would say that the experience itself was lovely, I felt relaxed and happy and left with a beautiful manicure and the knowledge that at last, I have found somewhere good to have my nails done in Zurich!
