Kale Manicures Are a Thing
And good God, the results are delicious
Kale: the Cara Delevingne of the produce aisle.
It’s been hyped wayyy too much, but ultimately you can’t get enough.
So imagine our mixed feelings when we heard about a kale...manicure.
It’s on the menu at the new Nails Inc bar, a secret little spot tucked away on the fifth floor of Saks. And--we can’t believe we’re about to say this--it’s the best manicure we’ve ever had.
Here’s why: Topical nutrition just might be legit.
The manicurist started with a vitamin-E cuticle oil that kept our surrounding skin flake-free for four days. (Like, even through Juno....) Next came a "superfood" base coat infused with aloe vera, ginseng and pomegranate, followed by a kale-enriched polish. Allegedly, the vitamins (A, C, E, F and H) seep into the nails to strengthen them and prevent splitting.
We’re 11 days (and counting) without a single chip.
You’re already spending $30 for a gel mani to last that long. Might as well give kale its proper due.
