As I spend a lot of my time getting other people picture perfect, I enjoy being pampered from time to time! Getting a great manicure and pedicure is a real treat, especially since you can’t use your hands so you don’t even have the distraction of your phone while you’re there. Whichever side of the pond you’re on, if you’re on the hunt for the best manis and pedis in London and New York, look no further.

If you are more concerned with your nails’ condition than nail art, head to Linnaean where hydrating treatments and natural polishes are top of the agenda.

The woman behind the medical pedicure; your feet need a visit to Margaret Dabbs! Visit at least once a year for Margaret Dabbs’ medi-pedi, which is carried out by professional podiatrists. A must for neglected feet, they will be given a complete overhaul, with dead skin removed and feet and nails left in tip-top condition.
