Noticing a dearth of salons devoted to taking care of dainty hands and nails in the city, Harkiran Singha switched professions and opened Polish, a nail spa in Sector 8, Chandigarh.

Harkiran, 37, was a teacher at Vivek High School, Sector 38, Chandigarh, for five years before changing her profession. “I am a nails person,” she smiles, and adds, “and so I tried various places where nail jobs were done, but I was disappointed. Every time I wanted a good nail trend on me, I had to travel to Delhi or other metros. So this is how Polish, the nail spa, was born.”

Aiming to provide affordable luxury to the trend-conscious people of the city, Polish comprises of a team of five trained staff members, both manicurists and pedicurists.

The concept behind opening an exclusive nails spa, feels Harkirat, is for people to start paying attention to their hands. “Usually, big salons offer packages for the face, but hands and feet are forgotten. Since hands are most important after the face, they should be perfected and beautified now and then,” she suggests.

On offer at Polish:

Nail art – Includes wedding nail art, party nail art, and customised nail art. They use millers, glitters, stones, foil and tattoos in the work of art. Prices start from R20 to get a flower painted, up to R2,000, depending on the design.

Gel overlaying on natural nails – This procedure is said to protect the natural nail, for which they also advise using cuticle oil twice a day. Price: R1,800-R2,100 (both hands)

Manicures: R200 to R700

Pedicures: R250 to R800

Nail extensions: People who wish to have long nails but are in the habit of biting their nails, can get extensions done that come in the range of R2,600 to R2,900 (both hands)

Nail colours: They have more than 150 shades of top most nail care brands such as Orly and OPI

Theme parties: They also offer fun nail art as a package for kids, brides, friends and kitty party revelers!
