Looking after your hands and feet is not just an affectation, it’s like choosing the right outfit when you leave home. We’ve rounded up a pick of salons where the beauty ritual dedicated to hands and feet also encompasses the idea of overall wellbeing.
1. Smalto Beauty Lounge Milano
Reminiscent of a New York loft, this beauty lounge features three separate areas: two dedicated to manicures and pedicures and another one dedicated to beauty treatments. It also boasts a hairstyling salon on the lower floor. If you want flawless fingers, make sure to try the Manicure Paradiso Latte&Miele involving an emollient, exfoliating hand soak, followed by a regenerating vitamin C mask and a moisturizing butter massage.

2. Laylaland Nail Spa & More
Nail reconstruction, gel and lots more. In this case, we strongly recommend the salon’s signature Pedicure Majestic. Your feet are soaked in essential oils, followed by a heel scrub and a peeling treatment using original salt from the island of Bora Bora. The whole process is topped off by a soothing nourishing mask to prevent dryness.
