Is there anything better than a complimentary glass of champagne and fresh pair of beautiful nails?! I had the pleasure of attending Levoi nails blogging event last Friday thanks to the lovely Laura, who runs the blogging platform Ellefluence.
Being a student in Newcastle, I’m surrounded by lots of different places to go pamper my nails and admittedly I’d never heard of Levoi, but I’m so glad I got the opportunity to visit! Situated on St Mary’s place, it’s pretty much right next to Northumbria University library and they offer student discount on Mondays… so you can imagine where I’m going to be spending my free time now!
Levoi is hidden away down a couple of steps below street level, which is probably why oblivious me hadn’t noticed it before, but it’s definitely a place I won’t forget. The whole salon is decorated beautifully and I knew from the minute I was handed a free glass of champagne that I’d love it here.
What I found most interesting about the salon is that Levoi mix their own colours to suit the customer. I said I love dark green shades and within minutes the lovely owner, Anne, was able to mix me up the perfect colour exclusively for me. Though, I was so amazed by the variety of techniques they offer, I ended up covering the colour with a mix of glitters and chromes too! If you fall in love with one of Levoi’s colours (which I’m sure you will), they’re also available to buy online, which I think is a perfect gifting opportunity.
As you all know, I suffer from anxiety so initially I was sceptical about attending my first ever blogging event by myself. But the girls we’re so friendly I was immediately put to ease and really enjoyed my time chatting away, I didn’t want to leave!
Anne, spent so much time with me – trust me to be the nightmare of the event! For some unbeknown reason my right hand wasn’t curing well, but Anne persisted and wouldn’t let me leave until my nails we’re finished beautifully and I couldn’t thank her enough. All of the team at Levoi paid great attention to detail and made sure every single nail was left looking fabulous, the level of professionalism was outstanding.
Excuse the podgy fingers, but how gorgeous are those? they glitter so much in the sunlight, I keep catching myself checking them out! I was in the salon for around two hours until my nails finally started to play nice, I don’t know about you but I don’t know many nail technicians who would be willing to spend two hours making sure a single clients nails were that perfect!
With prices starting at just £16, Levoi is such great value for such an amazing service the girls provided. As if that and the free champagne wasn’t enough, I was treated to a hand massage at the end of my experience too which was a perfect way to end the day. If you’re around the Newcastle area I would 100% recommend visiting Levoi, especially if you’re on a student budget like me. Though I only experienced the nail treatment, I’m keen to try out Levoi’s other services, as they’re also experts in waxing, Hd brows and LVL lashes.
You can book online at www.levoinails.com or call the salon on 0191 230 5859. Thank you so much to Ellefluence for organising the event and the lovely girls who worked wonders with my nails, I’ll be back soon, I’ve already eyed up my next colour online.
