Salon and Spa Directory: Rescue Beauty Lounge

I'd been interested in Rescue Beauty Lounge for quite some time -- I love the nail polishes, and what better way to experience them than in owner Ji Baek's natural habitat?

So I picked up the phone and made an appointment for this past Friday. I decided upon the Collagen Wrap Manicure and Complete Pedicure -- it had been awhile since my last mani/pedi, and my hands and feet were looking a bit worse for wear!

Rescue Beauty Lounge is tucked away on Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District, and it's honestly pretty easy to miss it if you don't know what you're looking for -- there's just a simple sign on an unassuming apartment building! But I have to say I was completely blown away from the second I stepped in the door. Not only was every person working there so incredibly friendly and helpful, but the space is calming and beautiful.

After picking out my colors (Catherine H for my hands, Catherine for my toes -- sadly, both limited-edition colors have sold out!), I was led to a private mani/pedi station replete with pillows, an overstuffed bench and even a miniature built-in table. I had two lovely ladies working on me at the same time, one for my hands and one for my feet, so I felt like a total princess!

The Collagen Wrap Manicure ($50) included a paraffin wrap and a collagen mask in addition to Rescue Beauty's signature hand treatment and a mind-numbing hand massage. The Complete Pedicure ($90) also included a paraffin wrap and collagen mask in addition to an AHA callous peel.

My hands and feet were treated so well that, even days later, they're still totally baby soft! Polish was applied meticulously and hasn't even shown one sign of chipping.

All in all? Manicures and pedicures may cost more at Rescue Beauty Lounge than your typical nail salon, but you really get what you pay for. I couldn't have felt more relaxed or walked out with a better set of toes and tips.
