On File: The Emerald Door Nail Spa

Usually when I treat myself to a mani and pedi, my trip to the salon becomes just another errand I have to check off my to-do list. The customer service is quick but my mediocre salon rushes me in and out without feeling like I ever really treated myself. Needless to say, it’s as if my trip to the salon is just another errand I have to check off my to-do list.

After attending a beauty blogger event at The Emerald Door, my standards on nail care changed. The Emerald Door is a luxe nail spa that boasts all eco-friendly nail, skin and waxing services, not to mention sells a bevy of eco-chic nail, skin and hair products that you can take home. I indulged in some much-needed nail therapy as they introduced me to their products and services, complete with sips of champagne and bites. Boasting a luxe nail bar, lounge and six comfy pedicure chairs, Emerald Door is the ultimate eco-chic nail haven in the suburbs.

Tatiana, my aesthetician, gave me a gorgeous mani and pedi using one of my favorite nail polish lines, Deborah Lippmann in Mermaid’s Dream and On The Beach. I sat in a large comfy chair while soaking my feet in a fluffy gelatin filled foot tub, experiencing my first ever Japanese Jelly Pedicure (60 minutes, $60). This ultra-smooth concoction is a treat for your feet and provides relief for stress and aching muscles; the perfect pre-soak for a pedicure.
