Mia L Middleton Checks out Duck & File Nail Bar

Not only are Duck & Dry offering blow dries, alcoholic drinks and eyebrow services, but they have now opened a nail bar called Duck & File as well!

I headed down to the Mayfair store to try it out. See the steps below to a beautiful manicure! 

Step One

My hands are put in warm water, cuticles are pushed back and they are trimmed by hand – the best way to do this.

Step Two

I am given the most amazing hand massage! I booked this in my lunch hour as I desperately needed some mid-day pampering and a glass of cucumber water. The cream they used in the hand massage was so good that I couldn’t resist snapping a pic of it below for your (and my) future reference. Be sure to ask for it by name.

Step Three

Pick your colour and you are given three coats. I was all finished within my lunch break and even had time to get some food after.

Remember to book your bouncy blow-dry after your treatment. It is one of my favourite sports as the salon has tons of styles to offer and they really are some of the best. Also, be sure to squeeze in your brows at duck & pluck – with an amazing brow massage! See my other two articles on duck & dry Mayfair for more details. 

Thank you again Duck & Dry – always love your services.

P.S Check Duck & Dry’s Instagram to see there special Halloween styles and complimentary cocktails on 31st October & 1 November.
