Manicure Monday- Essie Butler Please at Michael John

 Another week another manicure Monday... I must admit I really look forward to these!

Today's Manicure Monday is a little different as I was invited down to MichaelJohn Spa for a luxury manicure and how could I say no!? I went in on Friday and was so glad to get away from the horrible snow and be greeted by their friendly staff. I chose my Essie colour, Butler Please which is a beautiful electric blue.Although many of you may not agree I think it is one of those colours that goes with anything, as it is so bright it simply look like you have purposely clashed it. It needed two coats as well as a base and top coat (of course) but she was done I was left with a cup of tea and magazines to wait for it to dry.
I am always a little disappointed with colour choices in salons though as they always have very normal colours; pinks, reds, neutrals and only two bright colours but I am happy they had this!
 (This colour also matches the pole on the Piccadilly line exactly, which amused me a little)
The salon is really nice and calming, everyone is very friendly (even the customers which you may not expect in Knightsbridge) and we had a little chat about eyelashes, the horrible weather and nail polish colours. The manicurist was also really nice she filed my nails and removed my cuticles perfectly before painting my nails. I was interested to find out what was the difference between the luxury manicure and normal manicure is; apparently it is simply that your hands are placed in hand heaters in the luxury manicure which I think is a little unneeded and not worth the extra £10.
(above photo looks a little lighter than it really is)

But overall I really enjoyed it and would love to go back to the salon for another treatment (or manicure) and would highly recommend it! I just love finding a salon that I feel real is really friendly and that makes me feel welcome. They even charged my phone!

Butler Please is also very similar to Nails Inc Baker Street Review here

    1. I agree. The colour is so vibrant it's amazing. Clever photography with the tiny water droplets implying long lasting and impenetrable.

  28. This definitely needs adding to my ever growing nail polish collection! I have quite a few blues already and always find it's the colour that stands out most to me when looking for a new polish, but the shades all look so different! You can never have too many blues :) xx

  40. Love this colour! Similar to a Topshop one I have... Also love how the beauty therapist has painted your full nail and not left a huge gap after your cuticle, I personally hate that! Please follow my blog, GladRags and NameTags
