Review: Nails at Zensational Manchester with Wahanda!

A few weeks ago, the lovely Wahanda sent me a fabulous surprise in the post. It was a voucher to use on their website to book in for a beauty treatment, and of course I wanted to choose somewhere in Manchester! I had been to the Zensational beauty salon just before our trip to Hong Kong and they’d done an awesome job of my CND Shellac nails, so chose them again when redeeming my voucher. Before I talk about the treatment, I feel I have to say this: I’d heard a lot about the Wahanda booking system, but had no idea just how brilliant it was! It is so easy to use and makes the whole process so straightforward. I would definitely use it again in the future! So, let’s find out how I got on at Zensational…

Zensational Manchester Wahanda review

Everything about Zensational is lovely. I always feel really chilled out when I arrive, and the team are absolutely brilliant – so friendly and chatty, and I find everything they do is always precise and carefully executed. I never mind too much about how my nails are shaped, and always put my trust in the nail technician – I’m never disappointed at Zensational. Colour-wise I’m really predicable. On my first visit to the salon I picked this amazing pink called Tutti Fruity, and couldn’t resist having another round of it on this occasion too. I asked for a little bit of sparkle over the top, which was no problem – it is nearly Christmas, after all!

The whole process of having the Shellac polish took around 30-40 minutes (we were so busy chatting I lost track of time!). I noticed that everything was done with so much care, from preparing my nails for the polish to applying each coat. I always worry that I’m going to smudge the polish when putting my hand into the funky UV ‘dryer’, but everything went smoothly and I was left with totally gorgeous, super sparkly nails!

Here’s the finished look:

Ta da! And the best news? It’s been almost three weeks since I had my nails done, and though they have grown out at the base there isn’t a single chip in sight. Talk about longevity! The colour is still as bold and bright and the overall finish is still perfect. Stunning!

I would wholeheartedly recommend taking a trip to Zensational if you’re Manchester-based. You won’t be disappointed! A huge thank you to the team for being so great, and to Wahanda for the very kind voucher too!

Stay Creative,
