The Nail Spa unveils its new line

By Cheranka Mendis

The Nail Spa which is one of the city’s premium nail salons has introduced a new range of products and services designed specifically for the festive season.

Nilanthi De Livera, the face behind The Nail Spa will be on hand to administer these pampering treats to the discerning client. “It is my passion to work on nails and I am glad to be on hand on a daily basis to take care of my customers. I feel it is very important to give customers the best in products and services with a personalized touch” said Nilanthi.


Being the appointed distributor for Star Nails, Cuccio and Jessica Cosmetics, Nail Spa ensures that the customer gets the best products and emphasis is on hygiene and cleanliness, which is a very important element in Nail Spa.  With the full range of Star Nails products and over 40 Jessica Nail Colors are available; the latest addition which is a sparkling enhancement is the Crystal Nails. When describing what ‘Crystal Nails’ is all about Nilanthi said “It is the newest introduction into the world of acrylic nails and one which has become exceedingly popular in markets such as the US. Basically it is a crystal enhanced acrylic powder which is used and here in Colombo we offer it in a variety of colours including the popular red and green for the season”. For those who prefer the conventional look, the transparent crystals finish is also available to give you that sparkle from within.

Apart from the Crystal Nails, Nilanthi emphasizes on the need to constantly use products which would treat and maintain healthy nails, a smooth skin and as well as tones overall texture to both hands and feet.  The range of CUCCIO products including the Milk and Honey Butter Blend, Sheers butters, Papaya hand cream and the Pomegranate lotion are perfect for all skin types.

The Mango Hand Peel which includes a manicure that gently exfoliates your skin by lifting the dead cells from the skin’s surface, giving you radiant skin. This is followed by the Papaya cream which is applied to the hands and arms which are submerged in mittens in order to let your skin soak up all the goodness of the product.

Apart from the Hand Peel a range of services which includes the basic manicure and pedicure, Paraffin Treatments, nail strengthening and the Hot Oil Manicures, are also available.

“I firmly believe that it is not just your hands that need to look and feel good as your feet work as hard all day and they require a certain degree of nurturing as well. Most people neglect their feet when it is as simple as taking care of your hands” said Nilanthi.

The Kava Pedicure is one of the most sought after pedicures available for those who would want to heal those cracked hard feet; within the first treatment you will definitely see an improvement. For those with dry skin we offer the Milk and Honey Exfoliant and Cuccio Milk and Honey salts are used in this treatment which leave your feet feeling renewed. The Paraffin Treatment is also available for those who have tired feet, varicose veins and dry skin.

“One of the most well accepted gifts anyone – be it a man or a woman can receive is to be treated for a spa treatment. I believe that it is one of the best ways to treat that special person in your life – be it your mother, sister, wife, brother, husband, boyfriend or even your best friend with the opportunity to avail themselves to some pampering by us at the Nail Spa and for this season give a gift voucher from us which will make a great Christmas gift” concluded Nilanthi.
