On the Road: Nails and Beauty Bar, Florence, Italy

by Nancy Kirk, Contributing Editor | November 28, 2018

The salon is located very close to the city center and in true Italian fashion, was next to a pizzeria.

I opted for a light blue gel manicure.

My tech (on the right) was named Nanda, and although she didn’t speak English, she was very friendly and had a good sense of humor.

The salon had a social vibe and played current pop music videos on screen as entertainment.

>The salon exclusively uses CND products for nail services.

After walking countless miles over the previous two weeks, I was in desperate need of a relaxing pedicure, and this one definitely did the trick.

Tsira (left) and Nanda (right) really seemed to get along and support each other. Here, the two pose for a photo in between cleaning up for closing time.
