If you’ve ever envied the fact that the Kardashian-Jenners have a handful of beautifiers on-call, now you can have your own glam squad at your finger tips — literally. Today, mobile beauty service Glamsquad is complementing its convenient makeup and hair services with the addition of manicures and pedicures for LA residents.
Glamsquad exclusively reveals to us that there are three types of nail services available. The first is the Standard, which is a traditional mani [$45] or pedi [$60] that includes “cutting and shaping the nails, cuticle care, a massage and finished with a polish application from a selection of 30 core and seasonal Essie shades + quick dry.” The second is the Spa, which offers everything in the traditional mani [$70] or pedi [$85] but “with an added element of luxe that includes a callus eliminator (pedicure only) plus a 10-minute massage using ultra-hydrating collagen gloves or booties.”
The third nail service is a Shellac manicure [$60], offering a standard mani with “your choice of 17 shades of CND Shellac for 14+ days of long-lasting wear and high-shine.”
There’s no question that Glamsquad’s services are a bit more pricey than dropping by your favorite IRL nail salon, but knowing that you don’t have to venture into civilization — especially when you’re crazy-busy — makes it all worth it.
