Weekend of Beauty Treatments: The Spirit of the Beehive Pedicure at Jin Soon Hand and Foot Spa

My feet have been looking a little worse for wear recently, so when my gal Keri asked if I wanted to get pedicures at Jin Soon Hand and Foot Spa, I took her up on it immediately. I absolutely love Jin Soon for the following reasons:

1) Every nail technician is incredibly skilled and makes your hands and feet look amazing.

2) The space is so adorable -- the back holds four pedicure stations with lots of pillows and tons of reading material.

3) Each service comes with a hot, steaming mug of tea.

4) The POLISH! Jin's walls are literally and liberally lined with every nail polish you could imagine. She stocks Essie, OPI, NARS, Creative Nail Design, Chanel, Zoya ... the choices are endless!

When you book a service at Jin Soon, you have the opportunity to choose which one you want when you arrive. I went for the Spirit of the Beehive Pedicure, which includes all the normal pedi steps -- filing, cutting, buffing, scrubbing and pumicing -- and then takes it one step further with a three-layer paraffin treatment. After being dipped three times, my feet were ensconced in the most adorable little booties for about 10 minutes. And when they were removed? PERFECTION. My feet have never felt so soft!

The crowning glory? The polish application, of course! I chose OPI Jade is the New Black, which at first I was a bit worried about -- I wasn't sure whether green would actually look good on my toes -- but I'm so glad I went for it. I absolutely love the color and I think it's such a fun way to show off my fab, flawless pedi!

I was also delightfully surprised to discover that Jin Soon Choi herself was there that day. We've met at Fashion Week a few times, but it was great to see her in her element! She was polishing people's nails, helping girls get their flip-flops back on at the end of their services, running back and forth making sure everyone was happy. She's fantastic!

The Spirit of the Beehive Pedicure is $60. For more information about Jin Soon, click here.

Disclosure: I intended on paying for this pedicure, but Jin comped me.
