Tribute to Colombian community at Waterstones

Marcelas was on the newspapers last week. Express News, week of 10th to 16th of November edition . "Tribute to Colombian community at Waterstones". If you want to read the whole article go to Page 7 on


Anglo colombian Event - October 28th



Marcela was invited by Waterstones Picadilly on the 28th of October to share the story of her trajectory building a successful business such as MARCELAS. The evening was a great opportunity to appreciate the Anglo Colombian connection.



Daily routine for your foot care

You can incorporate this into your shower routine

Exfoliation: after 5-10 minutes in the shower your feet will be soft. I recommend using the Marcelas’s hand and foot exfoliation which has all the essential ingredients to scrub away hard, dead skin and moisturise.

Filling: once you have scrubbed you may find you still have hard skin, in this case you can use the Marcela’s foot file with a little dollop of the exfoliation on the area that is still tough and file until you feel it soft and smooth. Dry your feet well as fungal organisms thrive in moisture.

Massage: take your favourite rich foot cream, and give yourself a 5 minute foot massage on each foot. I recommend the Marcela’s peppermint foot cream as it gives a refreshing tingle and aroma to your feet.  This massage will make a difference to your stress levels, circulation and even levels of energy.


Pedicure once a month




Book a pedicure once a month to have your nails, toes professionally inspected; our beauticians are trained to give you tips and spot fungal infections.




Week 5 - Top Manicure Tips ( 5 of 5). Get a manicure at least every 10 days


A good thorough manicure should leave you with the feeling of new hands and stops you biting your nails and encourages you to keep up with hand and nail care and seasonal colours, but most of all we love to pamper our clients and share with them our latin culture!



Week 4 - Top Manicure Tips ( 4 of 5). Rub cuticle oil on your nails at night

This really does make a big difference to nail strength and keeping your finger tips soft and hydrated. We apply this at the end of the manicure and it is the final touch because I love the smell and feeling of the natural apricot kernel oil I put in the Marcela’s cuticle oil.


Week 3 - Top Manicure Tips ( 3 of 5). Use a rich, nourishing hand cream daily



Use a rich, nourishing hand cream daily

Pamper yourself (or come to us and we will!) with a gentle 5 minute massage a day. It’s great for de-stressing, especially as we are constantly using our hands in the same position on our phones and computer, but also it leaves hands protected and looking and feeling soft.


Week 2 - Top Manicure Tips ( 2 of 5). Base coat before polish

Apply a nail treatment base coat before polish or for natural nails

This gives your nails protection from varnish staining but also strengthens the nail to encourage growth and repair. At the salon we use my Colombian made base coats. My favourite one for really weak nail is their natural nails through following our nail care steps.



Week 1 - Top Manicure Tips ( 1 of 5). Exfoliate

Exfoliate your hands at least once a week

It is better to use exfoliation scrubs that are plant based as opposed to salt which I find can be too rough on the skin. In my Colombian home made exfoliation scrub I use rice ground up rice grain as it is soft and rice bran oil as it is rich in vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants.
