Sorry gents, this one might be of interest only to the ladies (though I am aware that nowadays some men also take good care of their feet and nails with pedicures and the like)!
A Pedicure Near Me at a Nail Salon Near Me
Yesterday, I went for a pedicure at one of the nail salons near me: my regular ‘local’ beauty salon.
Truthfully, I left not very content.
Yes, my nails looked much better than when I went in but, frankly, the service wasn’t great.
This brought to mind a pedicure that I had a little while ago that had me wondering: are all pedicures equal?
The pedicure in question—the good one—happened at L’Africaine Hair Designs in Hurlingham.
Before I tell you about the pedicure, though, let me tell you a little bit about my history with L’Africaine.
Nail Salons Near Me/Nail Parlour Near Me: L’Africaine Hair Salon, Nairobi
The best haircut and the best artificial nails I’ve ever had in my life were both from L’Africaine! So though L’Africaine was not a nail salon near me, it was worth the trek from Karen to Kilimani to get my beauty treatments done there.
After getting to know Nairobi better, though, I started going to other beauty salons.

Nail Spa Near Me Prices Much Better
Essentially, I felt L’Africaine was unnecessarily pricey.
In an effort to get regular beauty treatments that didn’t break the bank, I began to frequent beauty salons that offered maximum convenience in terms of location as well as services at extremely low prices.
As habit took over, I began to imagine that I was getting as good beauty treatments as I would anywhere.
