New Year Pedi from Nail It! Salon - S&R Shaw

Before the holiday season, I was already planning on having some pampering session for myself and J.  We've been wanting to have a massage to de-stress and ease our body pains. Too bad for us, it never happened.  For my part, my feet were screaming for a pedicure since November.  I ended up doing it myself.  After new year, I was finally able to book a decent foot spa and pedi from the newly opened Nail It! Salon S&R branch along Shaw.

The December break would have been a perfect time to get my nails done.  However, between the gift shopping, parties, and sick days, it was just impossible for me to take time out, to think the salon is less than 10 minutes away from my place! The franchisee is a friend and I'm glad the invitation was extended until January since many of us who were invited to try the services were understandably too preoccupied during the holiday rush.

Last week, with three of my SoMom friends, we were able to enjoy our treatments at Nail It! We were there during opening hour so we had the salon all to ourselves!  I availed of the pedicure with whitening spa and polish.

What I like about Nail It! Salon (S&R Shaw branch):
  • Conveniently located at S&R
  • Sterile-looking, cool and spacious
  • Comfortable seating with individual couches and lighting
  • Tools and disinfectants are visibly clean and organized
  • Aestheticians are courteous, gentle, careful, and thoughtful - asking me to check if I'm satisfied with the cleaning after each step before proceeding to the next
  • Very affordable rates and packages - for as low as PhP100 for manicure
  • Premium brands of nail lacquers
  • Individually packed sterilized tools for each customer - definitely plus points for this

The usual suspects.  My choice of colors are limited to reds and neutrals.  I don't know when I'll be ready to try out bolder and brighter colors, hehehehe...  Here at Nail It! S&R, I was able to find my preferred shades easily, but I hope they can add more colors and brands to their collection soon.  It was also harder to select and going through the bottles from the display stand.  I was expecting a handy color wheel or swatches from the different brands, like Orly, Essie, and Opi, which will make choosing colors more convenient while customers are seated.

After narrowing down my choices, I started with the usual foot soak and scrub, then cleaning and polish.  This was the most relaxing part, of course. We were all chatting and did not even notice what's happening with treatment until it was time to prep for the polish! We were that relaxed! =)

I ended up with Prince Charming, a rich shade of mocha from Orly.  As always, I enjoyed this spa-pedi, my first papering session for the year.  I'm really lucky there are a number of really good nail salons to choose from within our area, and now Nail It! is one of them.  I do hope they maintain the quality of service, and squeaky-clean look they have now.

New year, new pedi, thanks to Nail It! Salon S&R.  This won't be the last, for sure. It felt so good to have pretty, nice, neat nails after months of neglect! =)
