LIFE isn’t perfect but your nails can be! That’s why most people love to get their nails done aside from the fact that they’re cleaned, pampered and kept in tip-top shape.
Although this special treatment for nails can be done at home, most people prefer to go to a nail salon for professional care and a more relaxing environment. Nail Play & Beauty Lounge offers more than the basics with its five-star service, imported and quality nail lacquers, well-sterilized equipment and an ambiance that brings a Zen vibe, taking one’s manicure and pedicure sessions to a whole new level.
Though it is tucked at the back of the lively lifestyle-slash-dining strip One Paseo on Maria Luisa Road (yes, with ample parking space), its location gives Nail Play & Beauty Lounge an exclusive feel; like it’s some sort of secret hideaway for polish and beauty enthusiasts.
A small wooden footbridge, over a pond filled with fish and surrounded with healthy plants, will lead you to a white-framed glass door. Once inside the spa and beauty lounge, you will reach that maximum level of serenity, thanks to its laid-back and earth-toned interior, beautiful garden, relaxing background music, calming scent and friendly technicians who will immediately accommodate you with warm smiles on their faces while handing a rolled, wet towel and a menu of services.
After choosing what kind of service you want to avail of, a glass of lemon grass or a cup of tea, and a cookie or pastry, will be served to you. Its LuxurySpaPlay mani-pedi starts with a foot scrub using warm water and epsom salt with essential oil, followed by a foot and hand massage, then a basic nail cleaning—which includes cutting of nails and pushing back and clipping the cuticles—and polish. You may also request to have Orly Ridge Filler, a yellow nail treatment, applied before polish, for a minimal charge.
According to its owner, Faye Louise Veloso, the salon is designed to make its customers feel more relaxed and pampered after a long and tiring day.
“I don’t want Nail Play to be just a place for painting your nails but a place where you can relax and enjoy your 30 minutes or one hour while availing of our services; like a reward to yourself because you deserve it.”
Aside from nail services, Nail Play & Beauty Lounge also has beauty and pampering services which includes its Signature Mink eyelash extensions, eyebrow or facial threading, waxing, as well as hair styling and hair treatment for an instant makeover. A sparty (spa+party) is also doable here for people who want to have a private spa party with friends.
Nailplay & Beauty Lounge is open daily from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m.
