Get Haloed at St. Nails

Have you ever felt like you needed some rest and relaxation without leaving Metro Manila and wouldn’t be too expensive? I know most of you guys are stressed out about Midterms Week and we’re cramming with projects and trying to study our lessons for our exams. Here’s something that you could reward yourself after a week long struggle with your school.

If your idea of relaxation includes lounging around a comfy couch and basking in the relaxing tune of bossa nova music while your feet, hands, and nails get a lavish treat, it’s time to discover St. Nails, a chic and classy nail salon along EDSA corner Arnaiz Avenue Dasmarinas Village, Makati.

As soon as I stepped in warm smiles welcomed me to the Spa and they wouldn’t rush you on asking what service you want to avail. As you look around, the purple wall and the purple couches radiates a very posh and a cosmopolitan vibe to the place. I know most girls would already know what they want and like most men, I was clueless on what I should avail. I think the manager noticed that I was having a dilemma choosing so she approached me and handed me a tablet in which they have special packages and pointed out which service are great for guys. I opted for the “Spoil Me Now” package which includes Foot and Hand Parafin with Manicure and Pedicure (1,100).

I sat at the chair farthest from the counter coz’ I don’t wanna be disturbed. An attendant/Nail Technician approached me, asked if I wanted to have anything and I asked her for an Iced Tea and when she handed me my Iced tea she tried to break the ice and started to ask some questions as she sat down on her chair to do my Pedicure. Another attendant soon came out with a Herbal compress which puts on my shoulder. It was warm and quite relaxing. This small gestures for me, leaves the biggest impression. 

With the very comfy chair and the soothing music and the aroma that’s lofting in the air, I dozed off into wonderland. The attendant woke me up after she was done with the Pedicure and it was time for the Manicure.

Talking about Manicures and nails polishes, ladies should try out their Gel Polish with Manicure (P600) is a must-try.  A product of Orly which uses LED light instead of the damaging UV light to quickly dry out the polish, this equipment is safe both for nails and skin. Another luxurious treatment is Spoil Me Now (P1100) which is a pleasurable combo of manicure and pedicure with paraffin treatment that locks in moisture for soft and smooth skin. Another classic favorite is Pamper Me Now (P800), hand and foot bliss with manicure and pedicure.  This may sound rather ordinary, but the foot and hand bliss service use only the premium Orly Italian Mandarin line. Consists of a standard procedure from purifying soak, foot sole refinement (for foot bliss), detoxifying mask to moisturizing lotion, this treatment is bound to give the most rejuvenating experience and velvety soft skin which men find irresistible too.

I couldn’t think about anything else to say about this place, all I could really tell you is that it’s the best Nail Spa you could ever find in Manila. I’ve been through a lot of Nail Spas and others seemed like it was a brothel or the wet market since everyone was gossiping and so loud you wouldn’t be relaxed. 

And also, St Nails shares part of the sales to Gawad Kalinga, going there and having your Nails done would be so rewarding.
