Nail-a-Holics Nail Salon and Spa

After the painful stripping at Forever Flawless, I went to the nearby Nail-a-Holics Nail Salon and Spa for my mani-pedi, still part of my pamper-me-sunday. 🙂

That was my first time to try a nail spa as I always go to the nearest salon if I want to get my nails done.

The interior design is amazing. I love the aquamarine walls and the light-colored uber comfortable-looking seats. The place was packed but I was lucky to be seated in one of the gazebo-style seats. Apparently, they were implementing a new house rule that day: that a dedicated attendant will be assigned each customer. I don’t know if that’s a good or a bad thing though. 🙂

I was asked to choose which color of nail polish I prefer before my attendant, Ailyn, started cleaning my nails. They have regular brands and Orly (which is imported), and she was kind enough to paint my nails with each of my chosen colors before I made a decision. I chose the gold nail polish (which goes very well with my Michael Antonio shoes. hehe).

Service is really very good. I felt like a princess while I was there. The manager would always ask the customers if they need anything. They give us pillows and magazines, and makes sure that everyone is comfortable. My attendant would always ask me to check her work before she proceeds with the next step. I was pretty satisfied.

However, I’m slightly uncomfortable with the price of their service. For a simple mani-pedi session, I paid Php 440 (Php 180 for the mani, Php 220 for the pedi, and Php 40 for the imported nail polish). For half the price, I could get the same effect in the local salon. Oh well, that’s what you pay for the ambience. 🙂

Forever Flawless Face and Body Center

It’s very seldom that I’m home alone without nothing to do on a Sunday. If you’re a mom, you know what I mean. 🙂

So last Sunday (and it’s Easter!), I was at a lost on what to do because Angelo’s vacationing in the province and C has to attend a family reunion somewhere in Rizal. I thought I could last the whole day just watching TV at home. Midway in watching ASAP XV in channel 2 though, I was super bored already, so I decided to go out and just pamper myself.

I went to SM Megamall  to look for a waxing center. I’m hairy, and since it’s summer already, I need to have my legs waxed (I don’t want to shave ’em already because I get chicken skin – and it’s not so good to look at). I have been eyeing Forever Flawless Face and Body Center for a long time already, so I decided to give it a try.

After a short registration at the counter (they asked me to fill up some forms and sign some waivers), I was asked to wait for a few minutes at the reception area. Then Ate Amy, my attendant, led me to a small room. On the way there, we passed by the area where they perform facial procedures.

Compared to my past experiences, I noticed that Ate Amy paid so much attention to details. She was also always asking me if I’m feeling okay during the whole session, which I appreciate. After about 3o minutes of painful stripping, she applied lotion antibiotics on my legs to lessen the redness of my skin.

The price was, for me, was reasonable. For the full-leg wax, I paid Php 880 and for Underarms, they charged Php 280. I will definitely be a regular customer here. Even save money for the laser hair removal perhaps? 🙂
