If you are looking for a nail salon in Hong Kong that can provide quality manicures and pedicures at affordable pricing, you’ve come to the right place.
Sometimes it feels like getting your hands and feet done in this city can cost the earth. And, if you’re getting your nails re-painted every few weeks, these costs can really add up.
That’s why it is important to try out some nail salons that may not have a spa atmosphere but deliver the goods when it comes to great looking nails.
How can I find an affordable yet, high-quality nail salon in this city?
If you prioritize affordability and are ready to compromise on luxury, you can get your nails done cheaply in Hong Kong. You really don’t have to go to high-end salons to leave with fabulous-looking nails.
Generally, the further away from Central you go, the less money you will need to spend on your nails. Salons located just off the Mid-Levels escalators tend to be pricey.
