Spend a day blocks from the beach being pampered: Come have your soles feel the softer side at Bellacures in Santa Monica.
By Jennifer Ducharme
I’ve ventured to numerous five-star spas only to be disappointed, but Bellacures Santa Monica offers complimentary beverages, individual attention, and instant stress relief. Upon my arrival, I was greeted with a glass of ice cold water, a variety of polish colors including Essie & OPI, and an informative staff. I felt like a rock star with all the individual attention. My manicurist was attentive to my needs, entertaining, and she took the time to smooth away all the stress from my heels.
The ambience is simple: Bellacures Santa Monica is dressed in neutral shades, natural light, and a clean atmosphere. My body checked out as soon as I sat down. The second my bum hit the most comfortably cushioned chair, I melted. I keep an active lifestyle, and I work on my feet so I wanted the best treatment offered and the ‘Softer Soles’ pedicure and a much needed callus repair treatment caught my eye.
The treatments were timed from the sea salt scrub, to the revitalizing clay foot mask, followed by the well anticipated foot massage. The hot towel wrap was a nice touch to lock in moisture for the newly exposed skin. Individual time and care went into my pampering expedition. My feet felt smooth, looked clean, and Essie’s Fiji polish gave my toes that extra oomph of color for summer.
If you’re looking for a quickie pedicure, the softer soles treatment may not be the best option for you, but Bellacures Santa Monica offers a variety of treatment options based on your nailcare needs. My experience was delightful. I came in with a friend and our pedicures were done simultaneously side by side. This was the perfect gal pal date before a good weekend of mayhem.
