Not too long ago, my friend and fellow blogger, Cathy and I attended the opening of Marilyn Monroe Spas Nail Lounge in Riverside. I was in desperate need of a manicure so the opening couldn't have come at a better time!
The nail lounge is very chic and girly! My type of salon if you ask me! There were larger than life pictures of Marilyn Monroe throughout and even a red carpet from the front to the back of the spa. It took everything in me not to strut the carpet as if I was on a runway.
This is a full service spa offering facials, manis/pedis, waxing. and massages. Everyone is very sweet and professional and you're definitely catered to as a client! You're seated in a leather lounge chair, given a pillow and blanket if needed, and your own personal equipment for your mani or pedi that you can take home with you. On this particular evening we had champagne too!
I love that the decor is subtle with pops of red! I also learned that they host private events as well so if you're looking for somewhere chic to take the ladies for a bridal retreat, this would be perfect.
My nail tech was busy working her magic on my nails! She was so friendly and answered all of my questions in depth.
Of course, Cathy and I took the opportunity to pose for the camera in front of the signage!
One thing that I found interesting was that they use their own products.
Their polishes are vegan and cruelty-free with out the use of toxins such as formaldehyde, DBP, and toulene. The only downside with this is that the polish didn't last very long at all.
Overall, I enjoyed my experience at Marilyn Monroe Spas Nail Lounge. The atmosphere is super chic and inviting, the nail techs are very nice and willing to help you in anyway possible. The price for a mani and pedi is $65 so the next time I visit it'll be for one or the other! If you have one in your area, check them out. They'd be the perfect place to go for a little pampering.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
