City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

Ever since our City Pulse “Green Issue”, I’ve been sort of obsessed with eco-friendly products. I’m slowly moving to an entire bathroom filled with green beauty brands, starting first with my nails. These days, polish brands like Zoya and PeaceKeeper, offer shades of lacquers that are up to date with current color trends and sans harmful chemicals.

It’s a bit of a catch 22 though when you bring your own organic polish to a regular old salon. Think of the base coat, top coat, polish remover, etc. that they’re using on your nails from their own supplies. That’s where W!nk Eco Beauty Bar comes in. Think treatments crafted with essential oils, salts, sugars and herbs. Among the menu you’ll find facials and massages, manicures and pedicures, apothecary treatments and restorative manicures and even a hot towel shave & steam treatment for your man on MANic Tuesdays.

Book an appointment for a Thursday or Friday night and enjoy “Girls Gone Green“, a social beauty event for ladies, offering manicures, pedicures, makeup application, specials and giveaways. It’s perfect before a night out on the town with the girls or after a long day of work.
