A Mani-Pedi Sparty at The Nail Room

Women have different ways to unwind and pamper themselves.  For many busy moms I know, one sure-fire way to beat the blues and relax is to have a beauty break at a nail salon. I enjoy an occasional mani-pedi treatment too, and I recently had one at a "sparty" hosted by my friends from The Nail Room in Libis.

Last August 8, our group was welcomed at The Nail Room in Libis, Quezon City with a simple yet sumptuous spread of savory dishes, breads, pastries, and sparkling juice drinks.  Don't they look happy and excited? Heehee... :)

The Nail Room looks vibrant and welcoming with warm fuschia and purple colors set on clean white walls.
  • Can seat nine customers at a time
  • Each comfy chair is fitted with a wash basin, foot stool, and overhead lighting
  • Offers basic and spa manicure-pedicure services
  • Offers deluxe foot spa and paraffin treatments
  • Uses premium nail lacquers like Orly and Chanel
  • Affordable packages
  • Can accommodate private (spa)parties
  • Venue has easy access to an adjoining Nuat Thai spa for body massage
  • Open daily from 12 noon to 12 midnight

The open layout of The Nail Room is really ideal for small private parties and get-togethers as guests are seated on separate sides facing each other.  They have already accommodated several bridal and baby showers, and birthdays here.  

I was with six other SoMoms who gladly welcomed this break from our usual daily routine.  I badly needed a pedicure then, so it was perfect timing.  You can imagine how many stories (and gossip, hehehe) were shared during our mani-pedi session there! =)

Time to choose our polish.  Ang laki ng problema namin (we had a big problem), hahahaha... there were so many nice colors to choose from that it took a while for each of us to pick our shades from Orly and Chanel. Only a handful of high-end nail salons offer Chanel lacquers with add-on fees.  That's why, I'm glad The Nail Room carried the pricey brand and only charge an extra PhP100 if you choose Chanel polish.  That's a very good deal!

While I haven't decided on my colors yet, here's what I experience for my Spa Pedicure:
  • Foot soak
  • File
  • Scrub
  • Sloughing lotion
  • Moisturizing mask - which I loved 'coz it's minty cool! =)
  • Cleansing
  • Massage
I was supposed to have Spa Manicure as well, but I just buffed and shaped my nails the night before.  So, I skipped a few steps and just asked my aesthetician to massage my hands then proceed with application of nail polish. I'm very particular with my fingernails and I never had my cuticles removed.

While my feet and legs are being soaked and scrubbed, I was able to decide on my final colors...

I finally went for this classic red CHANEL Pirate for my pedi, and this neutral ORLY Coffee Break (or is it Country Club Khaki?) for my mani.

I am very happy with my fresh mani-pedi... I love the colors! As expected, fingernail polish started chipping after a week.  This is normal for me regardless of the brand, except when I used UV gel polish in the past which lasted much longer.  But my pedi is still looking perfect after 3 weeks!

With all our smiles here, we clearly enjoyed our sparty at The Nail Room, thanks to Jay and Janine for making it really relaxed and fun for us.
