Mani. Pedi. Repeat.

I love Lux SF

I got my first mani-pedi when I got married. I didn't understand how it could possibly be as good as people say. Let me tell you: it is. 

My nails do not get the TLC they should. They get dry. They are generally uneven. They wash too many dishes. Basically, they get the shaft. ;)

One day, a few weeks ago, someone said to me "come try a mani pedi at Lux!" and I did. It was after a crazy day of wrangling cute little energetic girls, and it was exactly what I needed. Lux is fresh, immaculate, with perfectly friendly faces, and lovely conversation. Their color options are unreal- I was thinking a standard navy would be nice, but when I saw the deepest, most gorgeous green, I opted for that, and LOVED it. 

Bubbly water, warm mittened creams, and gentle techniques. Eighty minutes of bliss... And speaking of bliss: they use Bliss products that smell like citric amazingness. 

Lux is so good, I took a selfie for it. I never take selfies, but when I asked Sophie to take a picture of my nails, it was 26 shots of blur (I blame my over-full phone, rather than her photo skills.. upgrade coming soon!). Anyway, I wanted a shot of my dark green, and here it is:

They also have fabulous shades of pink in case you're like my dad and do not think dark green is the best pick. ;)

Oh and hey, BONUS: Lux is located in the most adorable neighborhood called Hayes Valley. It's full of adorable restaurants, a tiny park, boutiques, and sweets shops. What does this mean? Take your girl friends and have a great evening out in the area, or bring your little girl for a nail date, and follow it with a little stop at the play structure across the way! Perfect.

(More on Hayes Valley and other bits of its charm soon). :)
