Affordable Pedicure/Manicure in Zurich??

I come from NY, where a person can find a nail salon on almost every block. Manicures generally cost $10 and a pedicure around $25. Usually, you can find a pedi/mani special Monday to Thursday for $20 total! So, imagine my surprise and disappointment upon moving here and discovering manicures for CHF50 or more and pedicures upwards of CHF 100! Does anyone know of a salon that is more affordable, but still offers good quality? My fingers and toes will be forever grateful!!

Re: Affordable Pedicure/Manicure in Zurich??

There's a manicurist near my place here in Hongg who charges 40 CHF for a full mani (excluding colour though). She is one of the very very few who uses OPI products here - even the moisturisers etc.

Needless to say, I was OVERJOYED

She is also very thorough and skilled. Best to make an appointment 1-2 weeks in advance as she's always fully booked.

Details:
Feminin Touch (Her name's Illic)
Limmattalstrasse 189, 8049 Zurich
Tel: 044 340 0885

You can stop looking because you won't find it--I've done the research. Oh how I miss the days of NYC. Zurich is a total ripoff when it comes to these services.

Good lordy! Talk about inflation! I dont remember paying that much! I've moved from Hongg for about 2 years now, so its too far of a trek for me to get to her now. I bite the bullet and treat myself to the occasional pedicure at the Schminkbar. Eyewatering 90CHF per session, but hey, its Zurich and I do it only once every 2 months.
