When I found out about this Australian Beauty Salon that was so passionate about providing cruelty free brands and beauty treatments naturally I had to find out more about the #GIRLBOSS behind inTherapy *click here to read our exclusive #SPAITGIRL #GIRLBOSS interview with Nicole Le Lievre owner of inTherapy.
inTherapy they have an extensive range of beauty treatments but with Non Toxic Mani’s making it’s mark all year in places like New York City and Los Angeles I was so excited to finally be expericing a Non Toxic Mani in Australia too.
Say It With Polish, is 100% against testing on animals and have been certified as 100% cruelty free and vegan by Cruelty Free Australia, it’s been co-founded by a couple of Aussie #GIRLBOSS inspirations and all of their products are made in Australia, infused with native ingredients and everything can be customise made and personalised to suit your own personal gifting, spa, salon, beauty, lifestyle self care needs.
Say it With Polish – nail polish and nail care range is breathable so your nails maintain top health and it is also10-free, meaning it doesn’t contain any of the nasties commonly found mass produced nail polish such as toluene, DBP, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, paraben, camphor and more.
The Say it With Polish signature manicure has been designed with the busy Aussie Girl in mind but it is also been designed to get your hands and nails looking and feeling amazing and when you visit inTherapy it’s all about YOU and they want you to truly feeling like you are the centre of the Universe! so I loved that too.
My beauty therapist was Anni Kokka and she was absolutely beautiful and had the biggest Happy SMILE ever!
Anni Kokka was so happy that she made me feel so happy too – I could really tell that Anni loved her job at inTherapy along with Beauty Therapy it truly shone through.
I loved how professional Anni was too and how she went through and explained things as it was my first time having a Say It With Polish singature manicure at inTherpay.
After a little period of settling in and getting comfortable in my chair – it was time for my Say it With Polish signature manicure at inTherapy to commence.
It started with a really lovely and relaxing warm water soak in a mix of sweet almond oil, organ oils and vitamin E, followed by a beautiful exfoliating massage with an organic sugar scrub.
Next I got to experience The Nitty Gritty hand ritual which is designed to help relieve tired hands and it is a water-based cuticle softener blended with eucalyptus & lavender essence.
From there you gently have your hands and nails massaged and The Nitty Gritty hand ritual helps to massage away dry cuticles and dead skin cells without drying.
After that you then have your nails shaped and buffed to perfection. My Beauty Therapist Anni – was highly trained and skilled and whilst I think I could have had my hands massaged all day or my nails snapped and and buffed all day.
I had to choose a colour that would suit me best and to take me through the rest of my days and nights ahead.
There was a total of 10 vegan friendly nail polish to choose from and loved how all of the Say it With Polish bottles had really cool mantra’s on them it was so girly, feel good and very cute and clever.
I also loved how at inTherapy you can arrange to have your own Say It With Polish – nail polishes customised for your own special occasion I thought that was such a great idea especially if you wanted to host an inTherapy ‘Say It With Polish” Mani Bridal Party.
I love to support Australian brands as I truly believe it’s so important for generations to come and ever since I started blogging I have always loved sharing and supporting Australian Made and Owned Natural products whenever I can.
One of the things I liked with my Say it With Polish signature manicure was at the end how they had created a specially formulated top coat, developed with non toxic plumping agents for a gel-look finish without using a UV lamp or harsh ingredients, the top coat has been built for instant colour and it adds that extra shine.
I found the nail polish to be fast drying and unlike other brands and I wasn’t actually that bothered about bumping my nails afterwards as I felt that the products worked really well on my own finger nails – compare to some other big brands that aren’t certified cruelty free.
All in All
“I loved my very first Say It With Polish signature manicure at inTherapy”
“It was a such a wonderful Australian Natural Beauty Salon – Nail Experience”
“A very big thank you Anni my beauty therapist – who really made my day & my nails look amazing”
“A very big thanks to Nicola Le Lievre owner of inTherapy and her team for welcoming me with open arms”
“I loved how friendly everyone was and I felt a real sense of community whilst visiting it was such an uplifting, empowering positive feel good experience”
Would I recommend booking in for a Say it With Polish signature manicure at inTherapy – definitely.
My nails looked amazing, but more importantly I felt amazing from the inside out.
It was so much fun hanging out with Anni, Nic and the rest of the inTherapy team and the quality service was outstanding.
I also loved how I got offered a glass of bubbles which is definitely something you don’t tend to get offered in any
walk in pop up nail bar in the shopping centres.
When I was having my nail treatment at inTherapy you feel like you the only one in the whole wide world and it’s such lovely ME TIME Beauty Salon experience so I can now see why inTherapy get nominated every year for the Australian Beauty Industry Awards – it all makes sense.
