Thanks to a new vanguard of mobile beauty services dispatching therapists to far-flung corners of the capital, transforming your office into a makeshift day spa has never been easier. CitySwish’s express treatments can be booked with the tap of an app at just an hour’s notice – and you can slot their Power Pedi into your lunch break.
So-called ‘intensive’ pedicures often end up offering little more than a slick of colour and some cocoa butter, but this one actually lives up to its name. After buffing and filing, the therapist will paint a chemical peel on to any dry patches with a dainty brush to leave feet baby soft. Of course, there’s something a little incongruous about sitting al desko, feet soaking in a dinky inflatable bowl which could double up as a pool for a teacup pug. And if your office has glass-panelled meeting rooms, you may garner a couple of perturbed looks from passing colleagues – they’re probably just jealous.
