Nail & Waxing @ LKF – Polished and Primed Manis and Facials in the Heart of Central

24 July, 2015

Nail & Waxing @ LKF is the place to visit if you’re after an immaculate mani in Hong Kong!

Walking into the swish Nail & Waxing @ LKF, I was thoroughly embarrassed by the state of my chipped mani and the fact that I resembled a drowned rat rather than a slick Sassy professional (thanks to the 852’s “summer” season).

Owned by Fran and her business partner Carol, Nail & Waxing @ LKF has been a staple on the nail salon scene in Hong Kong for several years. I settled in for my mani with nail therapist Amy, selecting a bright pop of colour from OPI’s latest Hawaii collection; Aloha from OPI, a red with a hint of orange/coral to it. If the warm weather had vanished, I could at least pretend I was on a beach… right?!

Amy expertly filed my nails into shape, pushed my cuticles back like a pro and buffed the surface of my nails to bring back their natural shine. What followed was a relaxing hand massage with OPI’s avojuice, a hand and body lotion… my skin quenched its thirst.

My nails were painted with a base coat, two coats of the coral colour I’d chosen on Amy’s recommendation and a high-shine, long-lasting top coat. The best part was that I was in and out in under an hour with perfect digits that were dry and had me ready for the rest of my evening.

I returned on another occasion for Fran to work on my skin… the spa has recently started doing facials, so I booked in for a deep cleansing one with Fran.

She worked her magical hands by deep cleansing, toning and moisturising my very, very dry skin using products from Korean brand The Face Shop. The best part is she could see my skin was in dire need of a drink and modified the facial accordingly to suit. She quickly and deftly extracted the blackheads around my nose (ouch!) and before I knew it, it was all over and I left with a glowing face and a spring in my step.

With pleasant and professional staff who knew exactly what they were doing, I felt completely comfortable being quite literally in their hands as they worked on beautifying me and getting me ready for summer. I would definitely return to Nail & Waxing @ LKF… my feet are looking like they need a pedicure soon, anyway… 

A regular mani is $220 and a facial is $680. Check out their promotions section on their website for exclusive discounts!
