Lili and Cata: A Dreamy Nail Experience at an Oasis in Brooklyn

Imagine a white tent with floral arches and lush greenery surrounding you as you have the best manicure and pedicure ever. Well, there is no need to dream — the reality is that Lili and Cata Nail Saloon provides one of the best nail services you will ever have, and does it in a garden setting, without using water.

I admit that the idea of a pedicure without soaking my feet sounded like it might be less relaxing, but the benefits of a dry pedicure and the technique used to relax you are worth the change. Lilly Rojas, co-founder of Lili and Cata says that waterless pedicures are the most sanitary way to receive a pedicure because you are less likely to risk infections from water borne bacteria. If you think a dry pedicure is not as relaxing, think again.

The salon uses antibacterial foot spray with essential oils, and heated towels to prep your feet, as you lean back in soft, comfortable reclining chairs. The massage is incredible, and one of the best I ever experienced. I usually do not relax this much with a foot massage, but I nearly fell asleep. The meticulous treatment of my nails and cuticles was flawless, and made the pedicure a stunning work of art. My gel manicure was also done to perfection, along with a fantastic hand and arm massage.

Another relaxing perk of this salon is the drink menu, which includes a variety of options from coffee to cocktails. On a hot summer day, sipping on a cool drink simply adds to the relaxing backyard vibe.

Of course, if you prefer, you can have your nail service indoors with the same attention to detail. The salon also uses only non-toxic nail polish brands, including gel options.

Visit Lili and Cata this summer for a mini escape that feels like you left New York City for an afternoon in the country, and return with a divine manicure and pedicure. You can even have your nails done outside in colder weather with the heaters and a closed tent to warm the space.

I cannot wait to return for another visit to experience the relaxing atmosphere of Lili and Cata.
