Between the city’s luxury spas and its low-priced, utilitarian salons there is room for another kind of experience. Enter Le Manicure, a salon located just off Diagonal that proudly claims to do “the best nails in Barcelona.”
The elegant, two-level space is inspired in Parisian fashion boutiques but manages to feel both inviting and youthful. The operative concept here is comfort. After your welcome espresso or cava, have your manicure or pedicure done while you lounge in an ergonomic armchair; a cushion ensures that you won’t need to move at all. If you’re in a hurry, have an express manicure in 18 minutes (€12) or pedicure in 15 minutes (€18).
But why rush? Relax into one of their full treatments with long-lasting Shellac polish, gel or porcelain nails, nail art or French manicure. They also offer natural peelings, waxing, threading and massage. French luxury has never been so close at hand.
