Guest blogger Katie Dupuis shares her Beautylicious treatment experience: Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Jeanet Salon as a part of the Beautylicious promotion here in Toronto. Beautylicious is similar to Winterlicious and Summerlicious — a seasonal event where restaurants in the city set a fixed price menu for a limited time. Same goes for salons and spas now, too! Earlier this month, you could purchase packages of spa services for a reduced rate at some of the city’s top places. I checked out Jeanet Spa and Salon in Yorkville for a very relaxing manicure. I hadn’t realized until I arrived that Salon Jeanet has worked on a number of celebs -‘ big name celebs like Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst. There are autographed posters all over the walls from Jeanet’s glittery clientele. There’s no wonder, either ‘ esthetician Amanda gave my hands the royal treatment. My nails were scrubbed and buffed and polished and the hand massage that went with it was wonderful after a long day at work. I think my hands actually said, “Katie, we’re going on strike if you don’t take us to this place more often.” I had my nails painted a chic dark grey — an OPI colour called Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees from the Espana Collection — which I may have to buy. I love it!
My only complaint — and it’s minor — was that my nails still weren’t completely dry by the time I went to bed a few hours later, and I ended up with light creases in the polish. Next time I’ll avoid going to get the treatment so late in the day. It wasn’t for lack of trying, either, to get a smooth polish: Amanda even did my coat up for me.Jeanet Salon and Spa — 140 Yorkville Ave, 2nd floor. Go and get the celebrity treatment for yourself!
