Nails in Exeter – Gel or Polish, Salon Or A Spa?

Jan 24, 2018 | Jenni Ashford

With more nail salons than ever in Exeter, there is a plethora of choice when it comes to nails in 2018.

There are many nail salons in the city centre promising a speedy manicure and perfect finish polish. Great if you’re in the city centre already, but maybe not so great if you’re finding parking and paying for it on top. At Wear Park Spa, you can enjoy all the benefits of a dedicated nail salon but in a relaxing spa environment, with free parking to boot. Plus, we have a great view across the golf course…so you can sit back and gaze across the horizon, while your nails are preened to perfection.

Nail fashion for 2018

According to Elle, Vogue and Cosmopolitan magazines, the SS18 fashion week featured nail fashions from a ballerina look, to metallics and neon colours.

The CND (makers of Shellac and Vinylux polish) are about to launch a new range of Nudes, with shades of soft, barely-there nudes to luxurious creamy skin-tone hues. Pastels are set to be hot this summer too, including a gorgeously well-groomed, matte pink effect.

The collection of colours at Wear Park Spa tops one-hundred, with a full palette of soft pastels, through to vampy reds, hot pinks and glowing corals.


Gel, Polish or Acrylics?

At Wear Park Spa, we believe in making the best of what you’ve got, focusing on improving the health and vitality of nails and skin (find out more about our completely natural ESPA treatments and eyelash enhancing Lash Lifts). We offer a choice of CND polish or gel to protect the health of the nail, and even improve it.

Long-lasting polish
CND Vinylux nail polish is long-lasting for up to 7 days (depending on how they’re looked after of course…rubber gloves at the ready!).  Vinylux is the first-ever long-lasting polish infused with ingredients to encourage nail strength, hydration and growth. Containing keratin, jojoba oil and vitamin E, Vinylux is a great choice for anyone wanting a splash of colour on their nails regardless of condition.

Gel polish
For stronger, high performance nail colour, Shellac is the answer. Lasting over 14 days (again, when treated well…), Shellac offers the highest shine, hardest wearing polish. Plus, for anyone who struggles with smudge-free drying times, Shellac is heaven-sent. It dries immediately thanks to the UV lamp curing process. Worried about removal? Shellac simply lifts off the nail after soaking in foils wraps – no scraping and no damage.


Which manicure or pedicure?

There are three levels of manicure and pedicure available at Wear Park Spa.

Let’s start with the basic spruce up.
