You may have read my latest beauty post about the fabulous Urban Calm shopping event in the Met Quarter, back in December, when I mentioned the brand had a smaller store tucked away in Ormskirk, West Lancashire?
I’ve lived in Ormskirk for two years now and I love a regular pamper sesh as much as the next girl. Getting my monthly shellac nails is my treat to myself as I feel my best when I’ve got nails done. So when the lovely team The Beauty Rooms invited me along in-between Christmas and New Year, when we were all firmly in Crimbo Limbo, I couldn’t say no!
The Beauty Rooms is tucked away, just behind Burscough Street and from the outside looks deceptively small. This was my first visit as on first impressions, I wasn’t aware the store did nails, appearing to be more a beauty treatment haunt, specialising in facials, waxes and lashes, but I can confirm, it’s my new go-to for my nails!
Arriving on a super wintery day, I was ready for a complete pamper and was booked in to get my shellac nails soaked off and replaced ready for January and a new set of shellac toes too. I loved the modern interior of The Beauty Rooms and felt instantly relaxed as the technician began to shape, buff and apply deep red shellac to my toes!
For my hands I wanted to step away from dark wintery Christmas so as we soaked off my existing burgundy shellac, I knew I wanted something wintery but quite cute at the same time! I opted for a pale blue across my fingers with a bronze shade on my ring finger of each hand. We also settled on silver glitter which I think really compliments each of the shades we opted for!
I wear my nails in a square cut shape and after taking down the length a little; I’m really happy with the overall look and can’t wait to return for my next set!
Open daily except Sundays, shellac nails costs £20, including a soak off for £5 and I’m massively impressed. Follow them on Instagram and book in to see for yourself!
