Adamina Spa Manicure

Hello all

Sorry for my Monday Manicure becoming a Wednesday post! I don't where this week is going, I feel like it's still Monday yet it's already halfway through the week.
On Saturday, I went to the beautiful Adamina Spa in Kensington for a manicure with a friend. I never usually get manicures unless given as a gift as I feel, with my years of practice, I'm pretty good at painting my nails so why pay £20 and upwards for someone to do something I can do myself. However, I thought I would treat myself.
The day spa itself is beautifully decorated, very chic with Victorian-esqu wallpaper and features, an interior that I really like.  
On arrival, I was led to a stunning hallway that lead to the female changing rooms where I was given a robe, slippers and a locker. Even though I was only there for a manicure, they like to make you comfortable and really relaxed, into the 'spa' mode, hence the robe. The changing room was as lovely as all other rooms, and they offered several lotions, Q-tips and cotton pads so all guests could pamper themselves.
The manicure & pedicure room was separate, and best of all they play Sex & The City whilst you have your manicure! How amazing is that?! You can sit back, relax and be pampered whilst watching the iconic series. 
 The manicure itself was 50 minutes long and included shape, cuticle work, arm and hand massage & paint. It was incredibly luxurious and relaxing. All the polishes they use are by Essie, so there was a vast colour choice. But, being me, I played it safe and went for red to match my hair! The shade I chose was 'Rock the Croc', a dark yet vibrant red. Please excuse my boney claw-like fingers! Just focus on the nails.
Sorry for the grainy image. 

 My first time at Adamina Spa was lovely & I am definitely planning to go again, next time perhaps for a massage or facial.
The best part of the spa is that on your first visit you receive 50% off your first treatment. Then, if you introduce a friend, not only do they receive 50% off, but you receive 30% off your next treatment. There is no limit to the amount of friends you can introduce, so you can enjoy 30% off and having a lovely day at the spa with as many friends as you wish!

I really enjoyed my manicure at Adamina Spa, and would definitely recommend this spa for girlfriends or Mums and daughters as its a lovely way to bond and in such a nice location too!


  1. This looks very lush. I've not had a manicure in so long but they've never been in places like this.

    Sounds expensive?! Was it?

    1. With the 50% off it wasn't too bad! Nice to treat yourself sometimes :) xx
