Shellac is the fast and effective way to achieve perfect nails with a beautiful finish. Unlike other semi permanent nail colours Shellac does not contain formaldehyde therefore is much kinder on the nail. The Shellac procedure is also a lot kinder to the natural nail bed as there is no buffing prior or post treatment.
The application of Shellac takes no longer than 40 minutes for a solid colour and 50 minutes for French meaning it is much quicker than other gel manicures.
Nails are left with a high shine and perfect colour for up to two weeks and best of all no peeling or chipping. Shellac dries instantly meaning no waiting around after your manicure and definitely no smudging!
Another fantastic benefit of Shellac is that the removal is so simple you can do it at home and only takes minutes, homecare is also minimal.
Shellac manicures and pedicures are available at both Zen Bruntsfield and Zen Teviot.

Before returning to work after my maternity leave I decided to book a facial at Zen Bruntsfield. I hadn’t been for a facial for a long time so was a little unsure on what my skin needed; I just knew it needed something!
I chatted to the receptionist and she offered to book me in for a complementary Digital Skin Analysis before my facial, this apparently is offered to all clients if you are new to the salon for facials, or are just little unsure on what your skin needs.
I was a little nervous with what the results may show, memories of baking in the sun all those years ago came flooding back, however I needn’t have worried. The Digital Skin Analysis was really interesting and not as scary as I initially thought, thank god! The skin analysis was able to show me what my skin looked like 5 years ago and what it may look like in 5 years time should I not treat it, I was also shown UV damage and any redness/capillary damage on the skin. The reality really hit home about using SPF every day and not just in summer.
The facial that was recommended to me was the Dr Murad Resurgence facial, also known as Zen’s red carpet facial. The facial was wonderfully relaxing; at times I felt some of the products tingling on my skin, which was not uncomfortable, rather enjoyable actually as it felt as if they were really working. The products smelt amazing and an AHA peel was included to help with the tone and texture of my skin, I was also treated to lots of little bits of massage during the seventy minutes.
I had never used Dr Murad products before or had a Dr Murad facial, but I can honestly say it was one of the best facials I’ve had, the results really were instant, lasted for days and most importantly for me I felt and looked like id had more than 5 hours sleep a night!

Zen Lifestyle is a stockist for the Neom Candles which are an excellent gift for birthdays and Christmas. These candles are luxury organic candles which mean they do not give out any toxins and actually smell when they are burning. They are made from vegetable wax and essential oils so you can get an aromatherapy treatment at home while you relax.
We stock 4 different candles and have a limited edition Christmas candle which is perfect for burning on Christmas morning or even when you’re putting up your Christmas tree. This candle has the perfect Christmas blend of warm, spicy notes of Cinnamon, Ginger, Mandarin & Tonka Bean – a perfect mix to create that festive mood at home.
It is recommended to only burn for maximum 4 hours at a time as the oils can become quite strong. The candles burn for 55 hours in total and also come with a silver sniffler to use when putting the candle out.
We do also have other candles which have a mixture of lavenders and sweet basil and lots of other choices to suit everyone’s tastes.
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!
