Beauty Studio by Superdrug Creates an Experience Store

With an expected increase of 30% in online shopping* come the end of the year, High Street stores are now starting to offer an experience when you walk through the door.  So, at present you’ll not only be able to buy all your toiletries and lunch at Superdrug, you’ll be able to get your nails did too…

I don’t usually go to Superdrug for beauty treatments, do you?  I stop by and pick up the latest beauty essentials, more hairbands and clips (where do they always disappear to?) and an on-the-go lunch.  I don’t usually stop to get a pedi, a mani and my brows threaded.

After my experience in-store recently however, I will be from now on.


The Beauty Studio by Superdrug currently sits in the middle of the store with a nail bar and a brow bar next to each other.  Pedicures, manicures with gel or polish plus brow threading, shaping and tinting are all available, and at the affordable prices you’d expect from Superdrug.

I chose to have a gel mani-pedi and enjoyed both treatments over a relaxing hour and a half with the lovely Renata, who is a perfectionist in ensuring your nails look immaculate.


Superdrug use Orly, a brand that is kind-to-your-nails and the environment being  Paraben-free, animal-testing free and even gluten free.  The new summer shades available offer a colour spectrum of vibrant berry shades and corals at one end with rich purple and bold blues at the other.  The best bit?  Orly focuses on encouraging healthy nail growth so your talons will get treated to boot.


Rhianna, Emma Watson, Adele and of course Kim K are fans and I chose No Regrets, a hot pink for my fingers and For the First Time, a pop of purple for my toes.


The end result was excellent; smooth, perfectly preened pinkies in vibrant shades that have drawn in the compliments.  Now I just need some new shoes to show off my pedicure.  Hey, any excuse.


Added bonuses of having your nails done at Superdrug:

  • The 30-second fast-acting UV lamp that dries gels in double quick time, cutting down the bore factor and fitting into your busy lifestyle.
  • They offer express treatments if you’re in a hurry, which is 30 minutes or less
  • You can book ahead but they also offer walk-in appointments for flexibility
  • You can pick up your ablutions after and kill two birds with one stone


  • Word has it that there is something new happening in-store this year, offering even more to experience and you’re going to love it. Get in there now and check it out, and watch this space for more news.
  • Orly are launching Breathable, a new polish and nail care treatment in one – look out. I love a product that helps us cut corners.

 Gel file and polish for fingernails and for toes is £18 each, with both priced at a saving of £30.
