My MiniLuxe Review & Life Updates

This past Thursday, I had one of the best spa experiences I’ve ever had. I very rarely give service-related businesses a complete 5-star rating, as I tend to be quite selective especially when it comes to getting my nails done, keeping cleanliness, execution, and excellent customer service in mind.

In comes MiniLuxe. I was already very familiar with the brand prior to my most recent visit, as they’ve established themselves as a top-tier, luxury nail salon brand across the country, primarily in Boston, LA, and Dallas.

I went to the location in the Dallas area, specifically located inside The Shops at Legacy in Plano, TX. At first glance, everything from the brightly-lit storefront aesthetic to the upscale, modern decor caught my eye right away.

As you walk inside, you’re greeted by this pristinely organized polish wall, in which I selected a dark purple color (perfect for the wintertime) from their Advanced Performance Polish line, which is just like a gel-manicure, without the fuss of having to use acetone and foil to remove. Also, their polish is completely vegan and formulated without the use of harmful chemicals that’s normally in other common brands on the market.

Moving onwards, the manicure and pedicure (as featured in the video above) was an absolutely incredible experience. They use disposable tools for each service, so they’ll never use any nail files that have been used on another customer. To me, that’s such an important factor because you don’t want to risk spreading germs or disease, especially when it comes to your hands and feet.

Their pedicure section offers two different types of seating. One personalized individual area (as shown above) and another cozy, lounge type of area for groups (as shown below).

My favorite part of both my manicure and pedicure was when I was scrubbed and massaged with their signature “Lemon-Aide” sugar scrub and body cream. The citrusy scent is so refreshing and light, and on top of that, it’s paraben-free. Win win.

Overall, my experience at MiniLuxe at The Shops at Legacy was truly an unforgettable one. Along with a specialized selection of manicures and pedicures, they also offer a variety of waxing services and add-ons for an additional fee. They were kind enough to offer me to try those as well, but unfortunately I didn’t have the time to stay longer. (If time wasn’t a factor, I would’ve sat there all day!)

Important Note:

This post was sponsored by MiniLuxe as they provided an afternoon of complimentary services and products to take home with me. However, as with all of my sponsored posts, I would never recommend anything to you guys that I don’t personally like or endorse on my own terms. As mentioned before, I have intentionally turned down other sponsorship opportunities because I either didn’t like the brand, or it just wasn’t the right fit for my blog.

That being said, I would highly recommend MiniLuxe to all of my girlfriends, family, and of course, to my readers and subscribers. Be sure to check if there’s a location near you to treat yourself to some much-needed rest and relaxation!

Thanks so much to the staff at MiniLuxe (Shops at Legacy) for an amazing experience, specifically the ladies at the front desk, Sophie, and to Rosa and Thalia, who did my manicure and pedicure, respectively.

Updates & Announcements:

If you haven’t watched my “10 Weird Facts About Me” video yet, here’s the link to that. For those of you guys that don’t know, I’m extremely quirky. And I’ve come to embrace that 110%!

Also, I’m officially back in Dallas after visiting my family on the east coast and vacationing in San Juan for the Holidays. It’s so good to be back home, but it’s definitely bittersweet as I miss all of my girlfriends back in NJ & NYC. I concluded my “Back to Jersey” vlog series with my final “Farewell New Jersey” vlog here:

Yesterday my hubby and I went to Top Golf in Dallas for the first time and we had a blast! Well, except for the fact that we were freezing because it was snowing and was 20-degrees outside. This picture is blurry because we attempted to use the self-timer feature and it was way too cold to try taking another photo. Thankfully, next week, my family will be flying to Dallas, and the temperature will rise to the 60’s and 70’s. Only in Texas y’all, only in Texas.

Lastly, I’ve been seriously loving my Mandy Cosmetics  mink lashes in “Vixen” lately, because it doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing them! They’re super comfortable and long-lasting. For 10% off your very own pair of lashes, use my code “ImperfectlyBeautiful” at checkout:
