Many of you might not know this about me, but I absolutely LOVE to get my nails done.
I have gotten my nails done in at least 10 different countries. I've tried everything from gel, acryllic, minx, gellish, shellac, dip-in, nail designs, nail art, you name it!
I think the appearance of someone's hand when they reach out to give you a hand shake can communicate a lot of things about them as a person, even before you feel the quality of their hand shake.
Anyway, one of the perks of being a blogger is that you occasionally are invited by local businesses to try their services and blog about it. This was the case with the newly opened nail salon Lush Nails on Vesterfarimagsgade, a stone's throw from Vesterport Station.
It is literally in the same stairwell as the Fitness World on Vesterfarimagsgade, just on the second floor (that would be 1st floor for you Danes!) I rang on the intercom and they buzzed me in immediately.
I was greeted at the door by the owners, Tony and Hien Vu. They were both very welcoming and showed me into a small, tidy room with a table for nails and a spa pedicure massage chair for pedis.
I wanted to try whatever their specialty was. Hien told me that her absolute favorite thing to do was nail art but she knew that many people found it to be too much. "Too much" doesn't scare me so I told her to go for it and show me what she can do. Her eyes lit up like a kid in a candy store, she put on some music and got to work.
Here are the top 3 things I really liked about Hien's work:
1- Hien carefully removed my dry cuticles.
NOT all places do this when you get gel nails, most just push your cuticles back. I think removing the dry cuticle makes for an overall better result.
2- Hien also filed the underside of my nails, making them look so nice and clean.
I hadn't tried that before, she used her electric file with a narrow, pointy head to carefully polish the underside of my nails. Such a nice result!
3- Hien is a perfectionist and has an eye for detail.
It was refreshing to watch her work so quickly and with so much attention to detail.
I was also pleased to hear about their policies and their special offfers which I think are a great added service seldomly seen in Denmark:
♦ 3 weeks warranty against lifting of the gel nails and includes warranty on stones
♦ Recommend a friend and get 100, KR- discount for your next treatment
♦ The fifth time you visit them you get 25% off and the tenth time 50% off on your treatment
♦ Free removal (for existing customers within 4 weeks)
♦ For refilling,they remove the old gel nails and start over again (it's like a new set each time).
And if you book soon, as a new customer, you will get 50% off your treatment!

I was very happy with the result, the great service and the amazing nail art. I can recommend Lush Nails wholeheartedly and will definitely be visiting Lush Nails again in the near future.
