I remember being at home alone when my son was a baby, still breastfeeding and wanting to get my nails done but there was no way I’d bring my son with me to the nail salon. I wish the Cherry app would have been available then because I would have been able to get my nails at home while he was napping. The Cherry app is the only on-demand manicure and pedicure service that you can book through an app for yourself or as a group. Fun Tidbit: The Cherry app was founded by Amber Venz-Box who you might know as the creator of rewardstyle.
How Do I Prepare?
Ideally, I would say that having no nail polish on your nails is best but the Cherry Pro can also do polish removal. Your breakfast or dining table is ideal for a manicure. For the pedicure I chose to sit on a couch in my living room and have a small stool for her to sit on so I can stretch my legs and she can easily work on my toes.
What On-Demand Services Can You Request?
You can book original, dip, full set or gel manicures and pedicures for men, women or a mini manicure for your kids 11 and under. One of my favorite things to add through the app? An a la carte 10 minute massage. You can also add a friend/s to your appointment and celebrate a birthday or bachelorette party. Disclaimer: All Cherry services are waterless which means they only use a foot or hand mask to hydrate your cuticles prior (or after depending on if it’s a regular, gel or dip polish) to your service.
How Do I Pay?
You can pay and tip through the app. I love that there are no surprise up-charges during your service because every service is selected prior to your nail technician arriving.
How Was My Experience?
At first, I felt so awkward getting my nails done at home because it’s it’s just weird! My Cherry Pro was super nice though so I got comfortable really quickly. I’ve used the Cherry app around 7 times and only one of the pros was one I would never request again (because she brought up uncomfortable conversation topics and I had to get my polish redone). All my other experiences were awesome were because my nails looked great and the pros were super sweet and professional.
