The Urban Escape

The Urban Escape is a home-based nail salon in Totara Views. Offering nail services in a quiet and comfortable environment. Hi. I'm Mandy, a Qualified Nail Technician and the proud owner of The Urban Escape in Totara Views, Silverdale.

I specialise in helping people take care of their natural nails and achieve their growth goals, by using top quality products and gentle techniques. Having been a terrible nail biter as a child, I understand that sometimes it's not easy to grow your nails. This is what motivates me to want to help others. If your nails are a source of embarrassment, let me help you - with no judgement. When you come to me, I aim to provide you with a comfortable and intimate setting, allowing you to completely relax. I see only one client at a time, which means that you will never be kept waiting and you get my undivided attention, while safe in the knowledge that the environment is clean and hygienic. So book your appointment now to 'escape' for a little while. Mandy xx

Operating as usual

So these look awesome, if I do say so myself. Sarah’s last challenge of the year for me - β€œnailed” it 😜

Sarah’s new nails today. The little individual hexagon glitter pieces were a challenge to get in the right place, but we got there in the end!

Just want to give a shout out to @hair_by_laurarose at @fuchsiahairdesign for the beautiful job she did on my 10 year old for her first salon hair colour yesterday! She saved up her own money to get this done, and she’s now a very happy girl ❀️ @ Fuchsia Hair Design

My take on the #dontrushchallenge

Warning: don’t watch if you’re easily offended πŸ˜‚

#justforfun

Following the governments announcement today, I will be closed for new and existing clients for the foreseeable future.

Please stay safe and follow the advice so we can get through this as quickly as possible ###

Nails for my beautiful friend Jen who is celebrating her 40th birthday tomorrow with an 80's party. Not sure you can get much more 80s than neon and zebra print?! πŸ¦“πŸ’…πŸ½

Happy birthday Jen. Love you loads ❀️❀️

These are my Sister's nails. I've been applying gel polish to them every 2-3 weeks since January. She needed them removed ahead of a procedure this week. As you can see, there is zero damage. This is due to careful removal each and every time! Natural nail health is the key to pretty nails 😍

These nails have had gel polish and IBX applied every two weeks for the last 15 months. Absolutely no damage - in fact, my client commented that her nails appear to be in better condition than when we started. Swipe for a close up!

Heart 'n Hands Massage NZ

I just need to give a shout out to Sam at Heart 'n Hands massage! I had her pop over this morning and I'm feeling so much better. Doing nails can make muscles tight from sitting in the same spot for too long, so this was just what I needed.

Head over the her page and book an appointment, as she is booked up about a month in advance, because she is that good!

It was my birthday on Monday (the big 40!), and I was surprised with a trip to Sydney this weekend with my sister!! Can't wait βœˆοΈπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

I have a couple of appointments available tomorrow, then I'll be unavailable until Wednesday 3rd July. DM me now if you'd like a last minute appointment tomorrow, or one of the few left for next week πŸ’…πŸΌπŸ’•

Don't do it 😭 Get yourself some cuticle oil to keep the skin soft and avoid the risk of hangnails. Not worth it!

My sister's nails I did almost two weeks ago but forgot to post. She loved my glittery nails, so had to have them. Pretty much my favourite glitter 😍

My turn for some pampering. I only get my hair done a couple of times a year, and decided it was a good time to go with my birthday coming up. Will show you the results later πŸ₯°

Pink with gold french seems to be popular at the moment. Sarah wanted to change it up with gold glitter feature nails too. They look great! πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ

1 NEWS

It finally looks like something might be done about the lack of regulations in this industry, and those of us who are qualified welcome these changes!

Between every client, I thoroughly clean and disinfect every tool, change every towel, and wipe down every surface. Your health and safety is my top priority. Is a cheap manicure really worth the risk?

Disturbing news for those who like getting their nails done - the majority of nail and beauty salons in the Wellington regions aren’t disinfecting and storing nail tools to a safe level, a new report has found.

Pulled out the stamping kit to do a set similar to some I did almost 2 years ago. Cool colour combo for Sarah πŸ’…πŸ’…πŸ’…
