I love, love, LOVE having my nails done. It’s a luxury that I treat myself to at least once a month. ￼So on a rainy Thursday afternoon, I jumped at the chance for a little pampering at Nail&Co in BGC.
I couldn’t have chosen a better place to spend my day! Tucked into a corner of Kensington Place in Burgos Circle, this nail salon is perfect for those much-needed girly days. Did I love it? Every last minute.
￼When I arrived for my appointment, I was greeted by the lovely owner Bel Lukban who walked me into her oh-so-classy nail salon.
Its interiors are done in black and white with pops of pink. Trés chic!
Check out that drool-worthy wall of nail polish. Orly! Bandi! China Glaze! And for a minimum fee, you can upgrade your choices to premium brands like Essie, Ruby Wing, Zoya, and Morgan Taylor. Too many colors and brands to choose from!
For my treatment, ￼I selected Nail&Co’s classic mani-pedi and signature foot spa. This includes a good soak, scrub, masque, and massage, all for your feet.
Confession: I bite my nails all the time, so I’m definitely more of a foot spa/pedicure kind of gal. This time around, I decided to have my fingernails done, too, in hopes that the pretty polish would stop me from chewing away. Did I succeed? We’ll see…
￼￼Once I plonked myself down into a really comfortable armchair, I was handed a customer information sheet to fill up. Did I prefer my nails short? Long? Round? Square? This extra step made it feel like the nail service was tailored just to suit my preference!
I was now ready for a some serious indulgence—complete with a tree-lined view by the window. I sat back and instantly relaxed in anticipation of the afternoon ahead.
After enjoying a good soak, my tired soles were scrubbed and prodded. I loved the soothing peppermint foot wrap (lavender and grapefruit versions are also available. And as for the foot massage, I wished it had gone on for days.
On to the mani-pedi! I really liked that all the nail-grooming tools were sealed beforehand, assuring you that they are all new, clean, and safe to use!
￼My poor, chewed-up fingernails were given a second chance at life after a little shaping. For that red nail classic thing that I like, I chose to have Orly’s Down Right Red painted on post-cleaning. The expert nail technicians topped my nails with Seche Vite, which dried the color in a flash. No more sitting and waiting for them to dry. I also loved how the topcoat gave my nails a gel-like finish!
Look! It matches my lipstick!
Ladies, here’s something you’ll want to know. Before I left, I was told that Nail&Co throws fantastic spa parties, complete with mouth-watering canapés. So fancy! I would love to have that for a fun and girly birthday bash, or my best friend’s bachelorette. If I were you, I’d keep my eye on on Deal Grocer’s Beauty Category for a crazy deal that gets you all of the above (including that foot spa).
And now, to resist the urge to gnaw at my perfect nails.
