SOLE SEARCHING: give the gift of a PERFECT PEDICURE …
Some people aren’t keen on full spa treatments but would jump at the idea of taking some time out and getting their feet soaked, moisturised and polished – particularly if they wear heels constantly or do a lot of sport. Here’s where to go:
1. Margaret Dabbs is the name to know for expert pedicures. Treat someone to her treatments at luxe locations including the new spa at Adare Manor, and Monart, from €70, and at salons nationwide. www.margaretdabbs.ie.
2. Esthetique Nails is the tiny Monkstown salon run by Izabela Niedzwiecka, a name to know for top-notch manicures and pedicures. 9b The Crescent, Monkstown, Co Dublin, 086 253 6651.
3. Treat someone to a Peat for Feet pedicure at The Cliff at Lyons, using peat sourced from the bogs of Co Laois together with homegrown lavender. The treatment includes a salt and fresh rosemary exfoliation and rich peat mud mask, plus a scalp, neck and shoulder massage, finishing with a file and polish. €75, 60 minutes. To book phone: 01 630 3500.
For a neat stocking filler, try Seoulista Rosy Toes Instant Pedicure foot mask with serum and Bulgarian rose oil. €8.99 at pharmacies and www.seoulistabeauty.com.
