Nail It! Salon Branch Opening @ Greenhills

May 21, 2011 (Saturday)IMG_0170I was invited weeks ago to the branch opening of Nail It! Salon at Greenhills by Jariss Manlapas—a blogger and a stylist. I'’ve worked with her before during a photography class in CSB where I did the makeup for the models. Jariss totally looked beautiful in her outfit, she was very welcoming and sweet! Sabrina (MissCoryPotts) made it to the event, and she was my gossip buddy that night! She’s still the same wacky Sab I met back in the Beauty Bloggers’ Meet Up in Metro Manila. We totally had a great chat about everything!DSC01947IMG_0127-horzThe opening actually ran a little late according to Jariss because of the catering, and we were already having our nails done when the ribbon cutting and blessing ceremony went on. I decided to treat my sisters and Sabrina since they had 50% off each—considering the promo for that day. I only had to pay P270.00  for the three of them. I really had fun chatting with Sabrina while getting our nails done. She’s the funniest person you can ever meet. I feel extremely comfortable when I’m with her! She's one of those people who I already felt a connection with even before we met. IMG_0102-horzIMG_0103-horzIMG_0110-horzIMG_0121-horzIMG_0139-horzIMG_0144-horzI chose Monroe’s Red for my nail color. Sab had this unique mermaid-y shade (I forgot what it’s called) and it totally reminded me of Aquamarine! I really liked the way Esther (nail technician) cleaned and pampered my nails. I mean, the whole process of it was just smooth and painless! Except for the time when she massaged my arms and twisted my bad wrist (that was an ouch moment—I can’t do proper push-ups for days now and it’s become worse after that twist) Nevertheless, I loved the mint scent of the lotion she used on me. Plus, she did such an awesome job with my nails! Perfect-o like 100%! No chips, no colors “out of the lines” whatsoever. It was predictable that I’d choose red for my nail color—red has always been my favorite. They use nail polishes from Orly and The Face Shop, so we totally don’t have any problem with quality! Esther used a quick dry top coat so my nails were fully dry after a good 10-15 minutes or so.IMG_0124I went to the counter to pay up. That’s PHP 180.00 for the service I had, plus three more 180.00’s but with 50% off each. We all had cleaning+nail polish. Paid PHP 450.00 all in all. We all went home with happy nails…DSC01944-horzBefore leaving, we had our photos taken at the Nail It! Photo Wall right outside the venue by the buffet table. Sab and I got the chance to chat with the owner of Nail It, Miss Jean Uvero and I found out that they’re going to be opening a branch along Espana—which is freaking amazing! I’m thinking of giving away two free services to two lucky readers. Stay tuned!

  13. why is it different from the first time you dyed it? is it nice for morenas? how long can it last?

    ReplyDelete
  14. This IS this first time I dyed it on my own. The first time I had it professionally done in a salon. You mean if the Natural Brown shade is nice for morenas? I think so. It can last up to 6 months, depending on how frequent you wash your hair.
