Hey guys welcome or welcome back to my website where we have fun with food and travel and anything exciting at affordable prices. So today, lets talks about nails. I know we love to look good without breaking our bank accounts. I discovered a few cool places in the heart of Nairobi CBD with the most affordable pricing when it comes to doing your nails and eyebrows.

Gel polish is the most common thing we are currently doing because it lasts longer than normal nail polish. For at least 3 to 4 weeks you know you are good unlike normal polish which you know chips quite easily.

I discovered this place through a Whatsapp group chat when one of my friends posted her freshly done nails. They were well done and of cos we all had to ask where she did them and at how much. The place is called BEAUTY EXPRESS located at Philadelphia House (Stage ya mat za Langata) the building opposite Afya Centre, on the 3rd floor. When you get out of the lift take a right turn up to to the end then make a left turn also up to the 2nd last door on your left. The place has a nice interior with white chairs and at least good ventilation. It also has free Wi-Fi and good music.

The service is great and they have about 4 or 5 attendants. Two of them being gentlemen and I think of late men are taking over this nail and saloon business. Most people prefer their nails and eyebrows done by men, me included. I don’t really know the exact reason behind  their decision but mine is that I just prefer men to do my nails and women to do my hair.

For the best service I advice you to visit the place during the day or mid morning or late in the evening at 8pm when it is less crowded. If you go at around 3-6pm you will find around ten people waiting on the queue. The place is getting a lot of traffic and so you need to plan your timing well. You can call and book an appointment but still it will not be guaranteed that by the time you get there, there won’t be another person in the queue. So timing is key. They also do “repairs” for free if your nails chip before the end of two weeks.

The price list is as follows:
Free gel removal
Gel Polish Application – 300
Tips            –  800
Stick on     –  800
Manicure    – 400
Pedicure     – 500



Give it a try and tell me how it goes. I will leave contacts for the two gentlemen.

I also have an eyebrow guy at BS- Bus station who does a really nice job at only 100 bob.
