Review: Perfectly Polished Nail Salon & Spa Service

Getting pampered is probably one of the many ways to relieve our stress from everyday life. Even the simplest manicure can lift a heavy load of stress off of you! Don’t you think so? After my Nail It! Salon experience, I  told myself that I should get nail treatments/pampering like two or three times a month. The thought of doing my own nails bugs me! I mean, I love doing my left hand’s nails—I  always do them perfectly; but when it comes to my right hand’s nails, I just can’t seem to have much control since I’m right handed. I’m left with no choice but to go to a nail salon and have them done instead. IMG_0874IMG_0882IMG_0879Last Sunday (June 12) I had the chance to try out Perfectly Polished Nail Salon and Spa’s services since it was one of the perks that two (2) of my blog readers won for my 20th birthday giveaway. The interiors of the salon looks absolutely cozy and feminine. I especially love the wallpaper design as well as the couches. The waxing area is behind the brown curtains. They use O.P.I Nail Polishes. I don’t like the fact that they labeled the shades by numbers (yet I know that they do so for convenience-purposes) Thades have their own names! I’m not going to take “#1” as an answer to my question (“What is this shade called?”) By the way, they have nail color wheels for the customers to choose the shades from.IMG_0878IMG_0881We tried out the “Perfectly Polished Manicure”. Everything basically went the same way as the Nail It! Salon nail service.

Here are some reasons why I give Perfectly Polished 3 out of 5 stars:

1. The woman who was doing my nails had heavy hands. I had to tell her to go easy on my left wrist since it’s all swollen from my workout

2. She applied two coats of OPI’s Big Apple Red—which totally made the shade look so much darker (and I did not like it)

3. They don’t have nail driers

4. They lied about their “FAST-DRYING TOP COAT”

5. I had four (4) chips on my nails in just about 2 hours after the service. This is a good explanation for #4.

6. Little bubbles formed on my nails about two hours after the service. You all know what that means! There was something wrong with the way she applied the polish!

Now for the good points…

1. Extremely comfortably couches

2. Friendly service

3. Good music

4. Serene atmosphere

5. Not crowded at all (I didn’t have to set an appointment beforehand)

6. Extremely affordable services! This manicure cost PHP 180.00

IMG_1685IMG_1690Would I go back to Perfectly Polished Nail Salon and Spa to get my nails done and perhaps try out their other services? I would! But it would 100% helpful if they use Revlon’s Quick Dry Top Coat (which dries up in 30 freaking seconds—TRIED AND TESTED) or nail driers!
