Pampering pedicure gave my poor feet a toe-tal makeover.

Byline: Laura Coventry

BECAUSE my foot-care regime is virtually non existent, I opted for a luxury spa pedicure at one of Glasgow's newest beauty salons, La Cherie.

Situated in the International Financial Services District on Cadogan Street, it is unlike any salon I have been to.

Firstly, it operates a unique "no appointments required" system which means customers can turn up for their treatment at a time convenient to them and, secondly, it has a striking red, black, and white colour scheme.

La Cherie occupies a former office furniture supplies shop on the ground floor of an office block at Epic House and is run by Abdul and Saadya Mohan, who spent around pounds 100,000 on fitting it out.

They offer treatments for hair, nails and body, from Indian head massages to teeth whitening and laser hair removal.

Keen to treat my feet, I indulged in the luxury spa pedicure while seated in a pedicure throne that massaged the back and shoulders as my feet soaked in the foot spa.

I had a one-hour pedicure, starting with cuticle work. A lemon sugar foot scrub was applied to exfoliate then a conditioning mask followed before wax was painted on to my feet, which were wrapped in heated booties.

I was treated to a leg massage then the booties were removed, the wax flaked off, and peppermint foot butter was rubbed in. To finish, my toenails were filed and polished with shocking pink varnish. I barely recognised my feet.

There is 50 per cent off all treatments (excluding hair extensions) until June.
