Christmas is almost upon us and it seems like every day we’re adding something new to our to-do list that we’ve been meaning to get around to forever.
Top of our list (aside from finally finishing our Christmas shopping) is getting a fab manicure that won’t break the bank – and that we can book last-minute.
We’ve rounded up the best spots that are still taking appointments in the run-up to Christmas, so why not book yourself in for a little festive pick-me-up and take a break from all the madness?
They’ve got salons in Ballsbridge and Donnybrook and both are gorge locations to sit back and unwind while you get your mani. They’re on the pricier end of the scale at €30 for a mini manicure but it’s well worth it if you’re looking for a little pre-Christmas treat.
Bijou Beauty, Malahide
This super reliable salon will never let you or your nails down. They’ve got prices starting from €12 and being in Malahide, it’s the ideal location for taking a break from the madness of Christmas shopping and town in general.
Charm Hand & Foot Spa, Dublin 5
This is my local spot and a great little find if you happen to be in Dublin 13 or the surrounding areas.
The spa just opened up in September this year and they have already proved themselves a hit with locals. Manicures here start from €15 and the décor is just so cute.
Blow Salon, Henry Street
One of their salons has a handy location inside the main door of Dunnes Stores on Henry Street, meaning you can duck in quickly for one of their Express Manicures at €15 before going about your present shopping - sorted.
Mint Nails & Beauty Spa, Richmond Street South
It’s got a lovely chilled out vibe, they’ve got great attention to detail and the manicures start from just €10 – what more could you want?
Chiffon Beauty Spa, Anne Street South
You can get a file and polish at this cute little spot for a mere €12. They’re super quick without letting you down on quality so it’s the perfect place to stop in for a break while you're in town.
