I’m so looking forward to ringing in the New Year with the other Power Animals! In preparation for tonight, I treated myself to a Calgel manicure at Pure Nail Salon in Clinton Hill. This was my first visit to Pure and I was definitely impressed. The decor leaves much to be desired, however the staff is super friendly, the prices are reasonable, and I am very happy with the quality of my manicure. Solid Calgel colors cost $30 and glitter gradations cost $45. I decided to get a sheer slightly sparkly base color with a gold glitter gradation. Jessie – the owner of the salon who seemed to know every customer who walked in the door – helped me pick out a chunky gold glitter she felt would go best with my base color. The end result was fabulous and perfect for New Year’s partying! I would highly recommend Pure to South Brooklyners looking for a cheap Calgel spot.
