Avanti Nails and Spa

I have had some really bad manicures lately and can't seem to find a decent place to go in my neighbourhood.  In the last three places I have tried the polish didn't even last a day and I was disappointed with the whole experience.

However, today I was in midtown and I found a really great nail bar called 'Avanti'.  They do a variety of different treatments and I opted for their 'Essential' package which consisted of a manicure and signature pedicure with a 10 minute massage for $71.  It is more than I normally pay, but I thought it was worth a go as I might get better treatments.

The salon is very clean and and the chairs and equipment are comfortable and well spaced out.  They also have a large back room overlooks a lovely garden.  It was a popular place but I didn't feel like they were rushing my treatments in order to get the next person in the chair.  The staff are friendly and make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

My pedicure was excellent.  The technician spent a long time ensuring my feet were smooth and soft and the massage was so relaxing that I almost fell asleep in the chair!  She painted my toes beautifully and my tired New York toes were twinkling again once she had finished. 

The manicure was more basic but still very good.  She took her time throughout, which makes a change as I hate it when they rush through the treatment.  My nails look great and I hope the polish lasts longer than my last few manicures.

I would recommend giving Avanti a try as I really enjoyed my experience and will definitely be going back there in the future.  For more information on services, prices and opening hours visit
