Are you sick of forking over $80 every two weeks for a seemingly non-essential manicure and pedicure? Are you tired of dealing with the sanitary conditions at your corner salon?
I have discovered the thing for you.
Glosslab, launched as a pop-up one year ago by Rachel Glass, makes the nail care you once squeezed between appointments no longer an errand you'll dread. For a mere $89 per month, you can receive unlimited gel or normal manicure and pedicures, touch ups, and polish changes. They offer chic polish lines, with Essie's Gel Couture long-lasting polish as the basic option (a normal up-charge at your corner salon), Smith and Cult's 8-free formula for those with sensitivities, and indie brands for the explorers. This membership is revolutionary. And it will make your life so much easier.
Over the course of our brief chat at Glosslab's newest location on Jane Street in the West Village, upwards of ten women entered the gleaming white doors to inquire about their new membership offering. Opened only two months ago, the storefront is causing quite a stir.
Gone are the days of having to choose between carrying cash for tips or dipping your hands in rosewater. Glosslab is the true middleman with exceptional prices and exceptional service. And the former finance-pro turned nail connoisseur founder, Rachel Glass, has thought of everything. You can receive same-time service (two technicians treating you to a mani + pedi at the same time -- heaven!), waterless pedicures for optimal sanitary conditions (water = bacteria -- ew!), and tools so clean you can lick them (they use doctor-grade cleaning agents -- divine!).
Your favorite It Girls, like Elizabeth and Dale of @sweatsandthecity and Katie Sands of @honestlykate, are early adopters of the unlimited membership. With partnerships with Dirty Lemon and other chic brands on the way, Glosslab will undoubtedly become your favorite weekend pampering spot.
Glass says, "I've never worked harder in my life, but I've also never had more fun."
Visit the West Village Location at 1 Jane Street at Greenwich Avenue, or the Flatiron Location at 27 West 20th Street. You can also catch Glosslab in West Chelsea's Starlett-Lehigh Building or Rockfeller Center's Marc Harris Salon. Visit their website to book.
