In such a fast paced city like Hong Kong, it’s no secret that finding time for personal grooming like haircuts and manicures can be a challenge. We’ve seen those 10 minute ‘quick-cut’ mini hair salons but what about a manicure express booth? We polish addicts know the time and effort needed just to get a quick mani pedi- making an appointment, waiting 15 minutes for your turn when you get there, spending 90 minutes getting your nails done, waiting forever under the nail dryer and finally leaving the salon $400 poorer.
But wait, there’s good news. Hailing from Israel and now finally open in Hong Kong, is LAKA Manicure Express- your answer to nails that need some speedy attention. LAKA founder, Mrs Sharon Chen-Konopny came up with the concept when she was juggling being a senior executive in a leading advertising agency and being a mother to three young children.
Unlike traditional nail salons which (to be honest) only tai-tai’s have time for, LAKA focuses on affordable luxury on the go for those busy bodies who want to keep their looks up to date without breaking the bank. Your nails will be shaped, polished and shined in only 15-20 minutes and an express nail service will set you back only $128. The service is a first come first served bases so no appointments are needed. The brand will also introduce latest colours inspired from runway shows each season so we can be on top of the fashion trend.
LAKA has opened its first nail bar in Hong Kong at LCX Harbour City and plans to launch 10 more, citywide in the next 3 years. The urban inspired nail bar is designed like a machine with a rotating ‘sushi bar’ of nail polish tubes, displaying engine clocks and a range of more than 100 nail polish colours on display so you won’t miss it.
